Re: How to best take advantage of forest fire damage

Lime will RAISE the pH, while sulfur will lower it. Used coffee grounds are great mulch/soil amendment for plants that like acidic condition. You can frequently get used grounds from coffee shops and restaurants. As much as I hate Starbucks, they are great about saving up their used coffee grounds f...

Re: Guinea pigs as livestock??????

Same here...Guinea pig is just WAY too much like a rat. Chickens, at least, are dual purpose...eggs as well as meat. Plus, I already HAVE the chickens!

Re: Potatoes: Another Container Gardening Idea

Years ago, when we were in PA, I grew potatoes in a couple of 50+ gallon plastic garbage cans that I'd poked a bunch of drain holes into. Filled the bottom 1/4 of the cans with soil, planted the taters, then as they grew, covered the growing plants with leaves and straw. Worked REALLY well, and harv...

Re: Idea for a rendevous

I escaped from there decades ago. The ONLY reason I EVER go back there is to visit my Mother.

Re: Where to Run, If a Nuclear Bomb is Dropped

Fortunately, where I am, they wouldn't bother wasting a nuke on cactus and mesquite scrubland. Nothing here worth bothering with.

Re: Toilet Plume

A long time ago I read that this "toilet Plume" will mist over the whole bathroom if you don't close the lid first. It will even cover your toothbrush with nasty germs. For this reason I will never brush my teeth again. In communal bathrooms this can be a major problem as this fecal matte...

Re: What are you doing on this first day of spring?

Since I'm working, I'll have just about enough time after getting home to shovel several day's worth of manure out of the corral (it goes into a pile to compost for the garden), feed horses and goats, and collect eggs before going in and starting dinner.

Re: GARDENING AND OTHER THINGS TO LEARN

The Mother Earth News Fairs are great. I went to the very first one they ever had, there at Seven Springs (that was when we lived in PA...it was only about a half hour from where we lived. They are DEFINITELY worth going to...get tickets for the entire weekend, as there is WAY too much to absorb and...

Re: MARCH 2017 - What Did You do To Prep This Week/Month?

Made a stop on the way home from work today and added to my version of a "retirement fund". It helped that the price of AU was down, so was able to pick up .25. Since I can only add to it a bit at a time, I find that fractionals are the best way for me to go. Thank you for posting about t...

Re: Online data collection and privacy

Simple thing is don't do ANYTHING online or POST anything online that you don't want others to know. Once it's out there, it's out there. Kind of like Pandora's box. Once it's opened, everything is "out there."
