    What Did You Do In The Garden?

    So you weren't just watching this time? Did anyone else see you do it? You do realize that your cover is blown now... :lol:

    What Did You Do In The Garden?

    Obviously not much going on in the garden at this point, but I finally decided to take down the dying apple tree. It has been slowly dying back from fire blight. If a person can have respect for a plant, that tree has certainly earned it. It caught the fire blight from the adjoining Red...

    Covid

    So this is not a one-off. We might be discovering something important here, that could have long-term ramifications for treating diabetes. It would be a blessing if something life saving were to emerge from this catastrophe.

    Covid

    Well, here's an interesting anecdote. DS#1 has gotten over his Covid. He mentioned that while he was ill, his blood sugar spiked by about 300%, to the point where even tripling his insulin couldn't bring it down. We were really concerned. But here's the odd part... now that he has recovered, he...

    Tomatoes 2020

    That is an impressive variety, very few seeds for a tomato that size.

    The transmitter might have been used to call for help... but by the time the antenna popped out, it was too late.

    Duck's New Ragtag garden, Version 2020

    My seeds get a lot of drying time, on used cafeteria trays. I allow them to dry until the indoor ambient humidity gets low enough that I start getting "sweater lightning", which is usually about 40% humidity. At that point experience tells me that the seeds have reached the proper dryness for...

    Greenhouse kit

    Ditto. I have had the smaller version for about 10 years now. I ordered extra clips, which not only allows me to replace the ones which pop out in a strong wind & get lost (they do) but enables me to put extra clips on some of the weaker panels. You most need those extra clips on the roof...

    Greenhouse, Winter Hardy

    When you are physically unable to do something, getting someone else to do it is a no-brainer. The guilty pleasure only comes when you know you could have done it. Which begs the question, would helping even a little blow your cover? (I vote "yes") :lol:

    Covid

    A very comprehensive list of all drugs, vaccines, and protocols for Covid-19 currently being studied is here: Covid-19 Clinical Trials This is a world-wide listing. I like that drug treatments are also covered here. Vaccines are the best avenue for (permanently?) reducing the spread &...

    For adults, they should be using a super-soaker. ;)

    Covid

    So far, one of my brothers & his wife; she works in a nursing home. Both of my sons (one a few days ago), one daughter, and both granddaughters have had Covid. None of them seriously, praise be.

    Covid

    Agreed. The incoming U.S. administration is already signalling a 4-6 week period of lockdown to some degree... which would once again cause panic buying. With the Spring shortages still fresh in memory, it is not surprising that consumers might think it wise to get an early start this time. Not...

    Garlic question

    If you are re-planting your own stock (and what's the point of growing garlic if you don't) then Fall planting is far more advantageous. The time between Summer harvest & Fall planting is only a few months, so the garlic stock is still vigorous. Spring planting is much more difficult -...
