Ruth, You have inspired me.... I WILL try some of your methods because, like you, I feel that if unwanted plants come up on their own, why shouldn't all the wanted items.  Already have a lot of faith and respect for the power of straw in the garden.  I usually lay a few layers of newspaper before I sprinkle straw, but will try it without the paper in a couple areas this year.  Love your attitude, spunk and getting it all done before 11:00 a.m.  You inspire me to take it easy and not so serious in the garden, looks like all it takes is faith, trust and a little pixie dust (cottonseed meal).  Don't know where to get that but will look around and find it.  Thanks, enjoyed this immensely

I loved listening to my grandfather telling me about the great depression, and what they had to do to feed their family. I could sit for hours listening to older people talking about the good old days. Everyone says I'm crazy, but I think everyone should have to live like our ancestors for about two weeks, that would be just long enough to let them know just how good they have it today!!!

Perfect Datura Bloom

"Interestingly, we've grown daturas for MANY years and have never seen tomato hornworms on them (although we have frequently had them on our tomatoes). Knock on wood -- we didn't see any of those vile things this summer!"

variegated Hippeastrum clump top tennis ball Sept 2014

"Thanks!  They're smaller than modern fancy hybrids, and they usually appear in pairs instead of fours, BUT they DO appear quite a few times a year so that makes up for it.  I've pollinated it many many times and have only gotten…"
