    It is perennial here to 20f so maybe I will be able to find a south wall for it.

    Pinapple Sage is Awesome!

    I blended pineapple thyme and basil into panko and used it on some tenderized chicken and fresh picked jalapenos I stuffed. Steamed some beans from the garden as well, with brown basmati rice.

    If I did something half as cool as that I would gloat and annoy my wife with it!

    Nothing. Those are coppers like your organic garden antifungal spray for all practical purposes. But boric is an insecticide and a preservative that is not terrible, and is in the cheap laundry cleaner called borax. As the wood weathers it is a handy anti everything that will keep borer bees and...

    We were literally scoffing at this tropical Low, as we have had so many storms dump at least this much, and one system even filled the gauge. I was watching a story about how Lake Mead is down to basically 40%. I thought of what must have caused the dust bowl conditions a century ago. I hope it...

    That fence is perfect! I make a suggestion for long into the future....Go ahead and spray those posts with a boric acid solution that has a sticker/peneterator like gmo in it. Do this annually. Thank me in 10 years or so.

    What Did You Do In The Garden?

    I hope it is not just retreated because it got a little drier. I know its still there in the soil but even to get some control on it is a big deal. By the time you see it the damage is done.

    Me too. But it got ahead with all that wet we had. But I mean it is GONE now. It took about a week to get rolling. I told DW we are gonna reload the cornmeal and re-innoculate before this tropical system hits us tomorrow.

    What Did You Do In The Garden?

    Hey yall wanna know a secret? I did something that stopped a fungus they say on the net there is no cure for. Its that white fuzzy one with black ball shaped tips that wants to get on squash flowers and then eat the fruit too. I killed that rascal and am very proud. I have been fighting him for...

    What Did You Do In The Garden?

    It is starting to produce. Crazy wet weather all at once is a problem so far, but here I am out here running the irrigation because I built it to drain well. And now its acting dry after too much rain. It makes me dizzy.
