Making Life Better

Started this discussion. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 5. 1 Reply

We only live once.  This is the only life we live.  We are here, we live, then we are gone.  So we should live good lives, be good to the people around us, and try to be happy.  As Robert Green…Continue

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Spud, my memory plays games with me.  For some reason, I'm thinking you lost your brother due to mushrooms? Please forgive me if I'm wrong. It's amazing to me that fungal mycelium grows through the soil, sort of like cobwebs…"

"Joan, thanks for the info regarding leaves.  I'll be hauling another batch today. For the most part, this year's leaf mulch goes on top of the mulch from last year, which is almost disappeared.  It did a great job suppressing…"

"Around here, there is only one or two major snow situations a year, plus usually an ice storm.  I think major equipment to remove all of that would cost a lot, and it's only for a short term situation.  I can see closings being more…"

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Randy, over the years, several people recommended that I look into "Master Gardeners".  I obviously have a strong horticultural bent. But as with all things,  motivations can be complicated.  As I looked into it more, I…"

"Randy, I emailed the master gardener program.  Hen I started to have doubts.  Too many people.  Too many classes.  Thoughts like yours.  Now Im asking, what was I thinking, already?  Im too introverted for…"

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Joan, here's an article about parthenocarpy.  For the tropical grower, all of our seedless bananas and navel oranges are parthenocarpic.  The seedless grocery story grapes are also parthenocarpic.  For the home grower, seedless…"

"Joan, some plants do fine with no insects.  I think tomatoes, peppers, beans are self pollinating.  They might need wind or movement to shake the flowers.  Cucurbits are easy to hand pollinate - cucumbers, squash, pumpkin, zucchini.…"

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Joan, thank you for the interesting information. For some of my plants, I'm trying to get around the reduction of pollinators.  I hand pollinate squashes and pumpkins.  For some fruit trees, I graft multiple varieties onto the same…"

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Randy, if it's a real hawthorne, then pears can be grafted onto it.  Pears are usually among the easiest fruits to graft.  I tried grafting pears onto hawthornes, but it turned out those were cascara, not hawthorne.  So they…"
Monday
Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Food!
"Most of my bucket of walnuts has vanished!  Some of the escaping walnuts left pieces of hull down the driveway.  Who knew I would need a cover for the container? Interesting article (for me, anyway) about how to make apple slices taste…"

"Here's a nice article about Honeycrisp and newer apples.  I've read similar before but enjoy the information.  In my orchard, we like Liberty and Honeycrisp the best.  There is also one called "Rubinette" that…"

"Randy, I learned to do that years ago, when my neighbor collected them and kept them in her window sill for the winter.  They root easily in a glass of water.  I do change the water now and then so it's not too mucky, but other than…"

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Joan, like your family moving on from Tekoa, mine moved on from their midwestern town.   We are all migrants in some generation. I dont think I can completely turn my back on growing plants in the winter.  I have windows and a sunroom,…"

Loam Gnome commented on Daniel W's group Godless in the garden
"Sounds like good plans.  With so much to do, winter should pass quickly. No more remodeling or updating for me.  My body can't handle it.  So this winter, I want to continue going through the last few boxes of photos and…"
