The mixed lettuce seeds give me plants I can't identify and then I don't know if I am growing lettuce or weeds.
Isn't it great that a sanctuary can be at least partly funded by what the animals produce.
I wish I had a flame thrower to scorch my ground. I have bugs that live in the ground and come out and destroy squash plants. Any idea for that problem?
You can also help control squash bugs by planting repellent plants with your squashes. Two of the most commonly used companions for squash is nasturtiums and white icicle radishes. Plant them throughout your squash beds for the best results. Other plants such as oregano, marigold, calendula and dill can also provide some protection.
We try to remember that when stuck on the highway behind a very slow, very ripe fertilizer spreader. In late summer, the harvesters lumber along at a majestic pace. Hay trailers, we stay right away from: I've seen two of those topple over, and the giant bales roll off.

Do you use your dill?
Pot with pockets... Do you think that would work?
Also, swiss chard can stand the heat.
The Brussel sprouts do very well in our winter.

Why not Brussel sprouts, artichoke or broccoli?
Swiss chard may not be the best flavor but it is great when the spinach and lettuce die in the heat.
I wish I had more money. Then I would just call for a truckload of soil and pile it on high.
Any idea for keeping #&((^%%$#@ grass out?!
