Re: What did you do to prepare today?

Found a couple of clusters of garlic in the garden that I missed harvesting the heads last year in July. I dug them up, separated the plants, and plugged in 70 of them as edging to garden beds I am prepping for planting in a few weeks. I also gave 50+ to neighbors to plan in their own gardens as the...

Buy your seed potatoes ASAP

Just as a note to all of you: If you grow short season/cool weather potato starts, get them asap. Wholesalers are already sold out for the most part.

Re: Hoarding food

Most interesting to see the graphic on what countries are net exporters vs net importers. Also interesting to take into account areas currently being devastated by a lot of grasshoppers.

I have 50 apple rootstocks arriving soon, and 14 different kinds of apple tree scions to graft onto them. Continuation of building our orchard, plus putting in collections of...
