Hello everyone!  I'm new here, but wanted to share a book I just finished - not a promotion at all - but more of a "you must read this book!"  Its by author and organic farmer Atina Diffley and called "Turn Here Sweet Corn". Has anyone else read this book?  I'm a gardener and into organics, but I found this book to not only be interesting, but riveting. The story of her family and eminent domain and the power of organic food...!  Its just fantastic. Anyway, just a little post today on that! :)

I'm still out here if you want to chat organic. I'm on an only buying and eating organic as I can diet. Since I learned that if we aren't eating organic corn & soy that we are getting a sestemic pesticide that explodes in the intestines. Not to mention the GMO garbage also.

Vicky,I am glad you have some praying mantis. I saw a small one haven't seen any more. Maybe I just can't see them. I don't have alot of bug problems this year though.

Squish squish squish supposedly if you plant icicle radishes in the hill it prevents them. I'll see if any of my books tell what to do for them.

Anyone know how to get rid of squash bugs organically?

12 years ago when I started gardening, obsessively because I bought (ironically), 3- 6pks.-1 of Petunias, 1 of Marigolds and 1 of Celosia. I planted them under my new bay window & they thrived. The colors popped & I was hooked. We built the home to retire in, on 1/3 acre. It was composed of dirt & boulders. The boulders became the starting point of planting beds. We are both allergic to lawn grass, Jim to the actual grass, & me to the insects. Covering all the dirt was important, so I began purchasing Ortho's "All About" books. Ground covers and Shrubs were first. I am posting some photos to show why lawn would have been impossible anyway, very little level ground. The very first year I also ordered some Roses & listened to the Guy at H. Depot. He recommended Orthene for them, which I sprayed once. I did not spend money, time, sweat and tears planting for fragrance so the yard would smell of poison. I delivered the poison back to the store and started my journey into Horticulture and the balance of nature. Although I did use poison once, I think after 12 years I can without guilt say I am a totally organic grower. I don't even have the rose now. That's the beginning of my story. I am only a couple months into Garden Share, so I will be asking for friends. I am so looking forward to hearing about all the different parts of the country and hearing about all of my fellow gardeners joys and challenges.Marian

"It is easy as long as the weather is mild. I think it's the aeration that actually does the work. I never took a photo of bubbles before. Aren't they cute?"
