Joan, I totally agree.
Daniel, you have created a Shangri-La, an Earthly paradise inhabited by a healthy, happy, caring and loving couple. You set the model for survival that is far superior in quality and quantity than the modern life that modern humans have chosen. You are our inspiration and guide!
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.
~ John Keats (1795-1821), Poems of Sentiment: IV.
Interesting cactus. Do you know if there are insects that come at night and pollinate it?
Nice looking tomatoes. My plants died off for some reason. That's never happened before.
Thanks, Spud, for the tips. I'll look for ginger in the super. I picked the dried bean pods and put them in a bucket to further dry and then be gently smashed. Picking out the beans will be tedious, but I like those kind of jobs (like extracting walnuts).
Has anybody grown lentils before?
Randy, are the pods still green? When I harvested dry beans many years ago I seem to remember letting my pods dry completely, and then they just about fall open.
Randy, I don't know where you can buy ginger made to grow. I was just about ready to research it when mine sprouted.
I got mine from the grocery store, and figured it had chemicals on it to keep it from sprouting, so I did what some sites recommended. Before planting, I soaked it in H20 for a day, with several changes of water.
Spud, neato! I've never grown ginger. Can you purchase it at a garden store? I need to research it.
I let my green beans mature, and now they're drying out. Not sure how to get the beans out of the pods. Any suggestions?
After a month, my Ginger plant has a sprout above the compost in my large pot. Last evening, I noticed a bump in the compost, brushed it aside, and saw the sprout just at the surface. This morning, only 12 hours later, it's 1 inch tall.
For 3 weeks I kept it at an average of 50 % relative humidity, and 79 F. The last week I kept it at 85 F.
