Re: Animal fodder will be next...

Old Native American trick with rabbits, is that they pounded the bones to meal and even ate the brains. Otherwise not enough to them to complete the protein and fats needed. I suppose you could pressure cook them until the bones were coming apart and do it that way as well. Just would have to get ri...

Tom The black radish is a root vegetable of the family Brassicaceae and is a variety of winter radish. It is also called Black Span...

Re: Estimate the needs

Just as an FYI, I believe Black Spanish are a winter radish, which means you do not plant them until after the summer solstice, so unless you are south of the equator, I hope you saved some seed, or they will bolt and never give you a sized radish.

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...

Re: FRESH VEG IS ROTTING

One lettuce plant will give you a couple of ounces of seeds. Dont need much room at all to have an absolute abundance of lettuce seed. Seed heads will be several feet high and at least a foot across.

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. Find out if your local retailer has them on hand, and buy whatever you plan on needing. I had to go to multiple locations to get 20# each of Yukon Gol...
