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.
Hope this helps
I have at least 2 mantis still here.
Anyone know how to get rid of squash bugs organically?
I'm glad you have seen some praying mantis! I haven't seen any since they were small. I don't have alot of bug damage though, so I think they are in my garden. I absolutely hate bug spray and chemicals.
Megan, welcome to this site. There is so much good info here. Could you post a picture of the gray sticky web? I think either spider web or I hope not tent worms.
You will all laugh,but I bought some organic fertilizer. A brand that I had not used before. I opent the bag and started sprinklig it around. I stated to smell really bad! My husband comes outside and asks what is that smell?! I knew I had smelt that before somewhere. It smelt like dead chickens! THat brand is a little too stinky for me. I may use it up if it seems to have worked well though. I worked it in and watered , but it smelt for two days!I hope to try making my own fertilizer next year. Compost tea or something.
