Re: Mycelium

I don't know if the companion has been identified yet but it's a common practice to take some soil from a native blueberry stand to inoculate your soil when planting blueberries. I've heard it postulated that maybe the relationship exists with something else that indirectly benefits the bush but I d...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

We've been stocking up on food this week. I haven't seen any food shortages here, and I'm not complaining. Anyhow, I've spent the past two days canning peaches and tomatoes. I hope to finish processing the bushel of tomatoes tomorrow. I started the black soldier fly digester but got sidetracked. I h...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

We discussed mealworms and almost went with them but black soldier flies have other benefits. They eat biological wastes so we can feed them poop and roadkill. That means that I can speed up the decomposition of my chicken manure. I took a class by Chris Link who runs the farm at Southern Appalachia...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

I too have been doing home repairs in the heat. Today I finally finished rebuilding the windows in our house. They were never flashed and I had to replace rotten sills and trim. It took two years to get all of them done. I've also been cutting and splitting firewood. The chickens have cut back on th...

Re: Chicken Poultry Husbandry

That's difficult to say. It really depends on how long they're separated. Princess was separated from the rest of the flock for 3 weeks. When I reintroduced her it took a week for my rooster to calm down and she was the one he cuddled with every night until she went broody. It could be that you have...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

What's happening y'all? So here's my take on pesticides, even the ones approved for organic use. I don't use them in my gardens and I won't apply them for my clients. The only place I use DE is in the nest boxes to control lice. Here's why I avoid them in the garden. Any pest insect has countless be...
