Re: How does your garden grow?

Normally I would post this under Daily Steps but since this is the growing section I'll post it here. I've been loading up seed trays the past couple of days. Here in the southern Appalachians it's time to start tomatoes, peppers, and greens. So far I've started 6 varieties each of peppers and tomat...

Re: Supplements?

Getting serious about preparing for times ahead and had a thought today? Anyone sticking up on a few supplement to augment our diet if sun/food variety not available? I was thinking specifically of Vitamins D and C. I already take D as I was low and don't sunbathers. Vitamin C against scurvy? Just ...

Re: Growing in Florida

Hey Dr. Eric! The first step is to identify the pest(s). You should look up your county extension office. You can bring them pics, the pests themselves, or the damaged plants. They will be able to tell you what's going on. Then you can develop a strategy for addressing the issue.

Re: How does your garden grow?

@Farside, I'm interested in hearing it. That seems like very good info. Since I'm here, I may as well say that this Feb is like last Feb: way too warm. Hawthorn, Nanking cherry, and peach trees are breaking dormancy along with elderberry bushes. We always get a deep freeze in March/April so I antici...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

Hey Kink! So here's the deal with your soil: high acidity. So plant some blueberries to take advantage of that situation. It's easier to go with what you have than to change it. Also, since you have acidic soils, stay away from the soil under the hemlock. To get your soils closer to what you want, I...

My conclusion? I'd trust it to power my personal airplane, if I had one, with me inside it at 5-6,000 feet :mrgreen:
I'm kind of surprised you haven't started building one yet :D
Today I cleaned the chicken run and planted peas.

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

I read his blog every day. https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/ I pulled a muscle earlier this week, hobbled around for a couple of days, then got a migraine. It was hard because we had some absolutely...

Re: Earth's Magnetic Polar Reversal - the mechanism

The GSM and the weakening magnetosphere are separate and concurrent events. We have never encountered a GSM like this in recorded history. Christian is right to be cautious in how this subject is approached. I share his concerns in this area. Anomalous Howard and I have had several good discussions ...
