    Walking to the back of the property to check on the garden, looked to the back, and several of my neighbors cows were there. My dogs saw the cows, and the fun began. A couple of my dogs are cur dogs, which seem to take great joy in herding cattle. Sometimes my dogs slip into my neighbors...

    The garden got off to a late start this year. In March we received so much rain the seeds rotted in the ground. It seemed like every couple of days we were getting a cold front. 2018 was the first year I had ever seen potatoes rot in the ground. All of this means the 2018 garden is running a...

    If you grow Okra you know it grows fast and requires a lot of picking. Instead of freezing it all and canning it all, you might want a fast snack. This is by far the easiest snack I have ever made and let me promise you, if you are an Okra person you will love this, and super easy to make. You...

    Some recommendations for stockpiling seeds for a survival garden. Radish - fast growing, usually ready to harvest 30 days after planting, the whole plant is edible. Turnips and Rutabaga - large green leaves, good for feeding humans and livestock. Yellow Squash and Zucchini - including winter...

    I've been sick the last two weeks and my okra plants have gone nuts with the rain. Most of it will end up in the compost heap unless the seed is worth saving

    Brain storming is when you have a group of people. One of them has a notepad, but in this case its the forum. One person throws out some ideas, then the others take those ideas and run with them, throwing out their own ideas. The person with the notepad writes down the ideas. After the brain...

    My okra is about 3 1/2 to 4 feet tall and has not bloomed yet. Usually, it has already started producing by now. I've talked to other people in the area who tell the same story. Some okra is 6 feet tall and has still not bloomed. I got my garden out late, (planted the second time in late...

    This thread is being started because I received some very good and very important questions on youtube. Lets start with the video. The question I received: I divide my seed stocks based on several categories. Besides nutrients, the other considerations are how fast does the food spoil...
