for the season but some friends had some bags of
stuff to bring over for the gardens. the weather
is holding in a fairly mild spell for a bit and the
ground has not frozen yet so sure why not? :) it
was nice to do a little digging yesterday to get
it all buried and to say hello to the wormie friends
Oh Songbird! You will never be done. This is an obsession
like trout fishing. As soon it gets too cold outside,
you will be scouring over seed catalogs.
Hope your wormie friends don't get too made at you
for the "cold food" again! Yo can always get even
with them by adding some medical waste (Kale) to the
And before you know it, you will be nursing/pampering
the poor little dears in little tiny pots trying to get

actually, you've got a few more weeks than i do as we
can get our first frosts in mid-to-late September. we
may plant earlier though.

even the best of us have our failures. by far there
are others in this group who know tons more than i do
(i can't identify plants or trees very well for instance
while Pat, David and Fran seem to know plants by their
scientific names at the drop of a hat).
what i lack in complicated nomenclature i try to make
up for in basic things like reading about soil sciences
and looking at what people are doing all over the world
for regenerative and restorative agriculture/gardening.
one recent project i was looking at was the sadhana
haiti project. very inspirational given that down there
is so very difficult.
Eat your heart out bird, we're still harvesting eggplant, tomatoes, and
sweet chilies plus harvesting broccoli and about seven different greens.
It's 74F outside and threatening/offering rain. Move south.
