    Aerated Compost Tea (the easy way)

    @Dirtmechanic , i consider this a “maintenance” thing. First thing in the spring after i’ve applied amendments and once later in the season as a general tonic. Inputs can vary widely, i’ve settled on this group based more on availability than anything else. I'm sure you can recognize the...

    Aerated Compost Tea (the easy way)

    Hello! bolts vs screws question 😁

    Welcome @gardenvet; from Alaska. Im fine with either for something like this, i do kinda prefer screws as bolting can be problematic if it’s not stainless and you need to change something.

    Darkibore kale on the left, Gypsy broccilli in the center and 4 heads of Kaitlin cabbage on the end, enough for our yearly kraut needs. the broccilli on this side have had the main heads removed and will be replaced once the second heads are cut. I have 6 - 1 ft. Tall replacements ready to go...

    I guess if i include some of the garden beds it will mix it up a bit. Things look pretty good for the time of year, cool and cloudy year’s are deceiving. If we glide into a slow fall everything will have a lot of time and do quite well In this weather. If it’s abrupt and or early, well then; who...

During the 48 hour period we caught 57 fish, 7 of which were King salmon and had to be released☹️.Over all it was a lot of work and i can see some possibilities if you lived closer to your...

    A lot of stuff is coming on nice right now. I do however, have some mites showing up in the greenhouse😳. We had some last year as well and i was able to keep them at bay; for a little bit; with a strong fermented plant extract spray. It seems early for these little buggers so hopefully i can...

    Most of ”the bling” has been applied so it’s getting time for some paint! I still have some jingles coming that may end up as wing edge trim too. Quote Reply Report Edit Delete
