   Being an avid gardener and outdoor person I think this group would be a good place to announce that a total sun eclipse will be in the U.S. in August, 2017. The eclipse path will start in Pacific Ocean and enter Salem,Or..... and continue across U.S.  to arrive at Charleston, SC and then out into the Atlantic Ocean.


In your state, Ky, the total eclipse can be fully viewed in Hopkinsville, KY.

Many people are reserving camping spots near the eclipse path.

More information can be read here:

Good news, Daniel! Me thinks it's the garden work that's keeping you going, not the meds!

We got an inch of welcomed rain overnight. I never heard a thing.

Daniel, that's a lovely color. I have two Leo yellow colour ones. They are my favorite. Then some that are so Yello they look like gold. Some that are tagged as red but they look more like rust and the orange ones that are common everywhere. And one black one that will turn purple in a few years. I had a green calla lilly which was pretty but almost impossible to see the bloom. It turned a lovely pink with a little green trim. I wish I had taken a picture of it :(

I hope everything goes well! Please keep us informed!

Your daylily is beautiful! Are you going to name it? I like the yellow, touched by apricot and the suggestion of ripple in its edge.

Mad Scientist, I like your Dallies, especially the Luxury Lace.  It's beautiful.

I've seen a couple of garter snakes (maybe the same one) in my yard recently. Hopefully, it will get a mole or chipmunks.

How did your doctor visit go, Daniel?

While walking yesterday, I found a snake.  Too bad it had been flattened by a car.  Don't think it would help my garden much.

The reason I asked abt cancer and humans is because sharks never get cancer, and on the same page I either heard or read that cancer is exclusive to humans. Not knowing if this was an urban myth or a fact, thus my reason for asking. However, just today my research showed that sharks do get cancer, but naked mole rats do not. Even when scientist artificially inject cancerous cells into mole rats, mole rats were able to suppress the growth. Also one in 5 humans get cancer but olny 5% of elephants get cancer.


..."Known as p53, it is a tumor suppressor." ....

It was said the more animal have of this p53 gene, the less likely to develop cancer.


It seems that every person on earth have some relative that got cancer...either survived or passed away. My wife's father died from cancer (he was a smoker plus he came from coal polluting China), her cousin died from stomach cancer in Ireland. For some reason, Ireland has some of the highest cancer rates in the world....this was what I was told. I just skipped through the web site and it is frightening.


Of my own family, the 11 of us, only one brother got cancer. He was a heavy smoker since middle school. My cousin got cancer which was treatable.... she refused....it was as if she was thankful that she didn't have to find a way to kill herself.

I am going to stop this now because this group is abt gardening, not cancer. I am sorry for bringing this up on this forum.

Randy, I know what you mean about weeding. I am a lazy lady and use every technique I can find to make it easier. 

I started watching this family because of their gardening techniques when there smallest child was very young and in diapers. The children grow so fast.

They converted a school bus and are on nationwide tour of permaculture gardens and farms. Justin Rhodes and his family work as a team and get lots of work done and have fun while they do it. 

His Permaculture Garden Needs ONLY 2 Days of Work;


To weed or not to weed, what would be Sepp's answer? RSS feed;

This isn't for gardens, but for farms, but I refer to it from time to time: 

Unnatural Selection: Why Encouraging Weeds May Be Good Farming (Video);

Practical Permaculture – The Art Of Weeds;

Q. This next one had me stumped; what is lucern? 

A.  lucerne (alfalfa hay) bales 

So, here is the site:
