Repotting and New Yamamoto Dendrobiums. 4.13.18
Ok, that worked. Try again.
Rained a bit last night to soften the garden soil. I've been cleaning up--taking down corn stalks and weeds. I usually just take a shovel and chop both at the surface, leaving the roots to supply food for worms.
I'm eating way too much fruit nowadays--red raspberries, apples, pears--high in sugar, but good.
Testing. My "Add comment" doesn't seem to work. this after I just wrote something. Grrr.
I LOVE blackberries!!!
That would be cool if I could find skeletons buried in my yard where the greener grass is. Halloween is just around the corner.
Great harvest you got there. My mouth is watering for fresh fruits.
Daniel, thanks for the informaton and link on lectins. This is important to me as I have IBS and high inflammation (which makes my arthritis worse). If you get rid of this group, such data will disappear.
Daniel, beautiful photos! I became a bit homesick seeing these plants; I also grew them in Spokane.
Thanks for the sweet corn, Sugar Buns, recommendation. It goes in my "Garden Seeds Recommended" file.
Larry makes a delicious sourdough bread and it goes well with his homemade chili.
On my lawn there are some patches of grass that is taller than grass in another area. Our property has three areas where the grass is taller and perhaps a little more greener. The question is why and one answer I thought of was those areas have a longer span of direct sunlight than the other areas. If my assumption is correct then those areas are the best spots to grow sun loving vegetables, vine fruits, and other plants.
Wadda do the Green Thumbers here think ?
Lucky you, Daniel. My tomatoes were a disaster this year for some unknown reason. Everybody had problems, including my farm kids.
Oh well, I just read that edibles from the black nightshade family, including tomatoes and potatoes are not good for you because of "lectins" in them. Same with most grains. This from The Plant Paradox by a Dr. Gundry. I'm not paying much attention to his recommendations. Too restrictive. You would hate reading it!
Yes, I made & froze sauce one year when we had so many tomatoes, we supplied the neighbourhood, & ate fresh for weeks & still had excess. It was great!
Store bought tomatoes have no comparison to home grown! Love them & the fragrance is top notch!!!
