    Raised bed - wanna let it cook

    Throw everything you have and whatever you can find in there. Leaves, grass clippings, pine straw, vegetable waste, chipper trash from a utility company or tree service, etc. Anything you can scrounge up quick and easy. If you have woods, you can harvest a shitton of good stuff out of there...

    Raised bed - wanna let it cook

    Hay bales Unc. You have plenty of time to let them rot. They're cheap and easier to handle than 2 yards of dirt.

    fertilizer Gooey BSF Larvae compost

    Thanks. That makes sense. I suppose I should stir it a lot more often with my hoe. I definitely have to dry it and it break it up before I mix it with those three tubs of grass clipping/horse manure compost. I can see that turning into something like concrete

    fertilizer Gooey BSF Larvae compost

    Drying BSF compost is much worse than drying tar. This particular tub has been drying in the sun since May 1. May 1 June 6 Not much progress. I have two tubs of this stuff drying. I want to chop it up finely and mix with three tubs of more conventional compost that I infused with all...

    Anybody else growing cannabis?

    Beauty Unc. This picture alone makes me wish I didn't live in my holier-than-thou, hypocritical, redneck/fascist state. They can still take your property down here but as a consolation prize, they can give you a rent-free place to live for 99 years. Even though there are plenty of spots within a...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    I got everything fairly well shaded, mulched and planted by early last week. I hit it with a little of low chlorine 18-7-11, microbes and I'm trying hard to get everything well established before I have to leave again next week. Hard to do when planting so late. The weather here is awful. No...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    Thank you. Great to hear from you Andy. Our regular vet removed her stitches last Tuesday and was amazed at how far she came along in such a short time. It was brutal ordeal. The incision in her belly was 10". She's off restriction now and getting herself back to business as usual. Good thing. I...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    I finally removed the solid compost from one of my BSF composters. This is what I was able to dump out of the inner 5 gallon bucket/bag. The butterfly showed up minutes after dumping the stuff into the bin and has been back for more many times today. Not exactly nectar but whatever turns his...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    We got home yesterday. The girl is doing great. Stoned to the bone on opiates (for next few days) and resting all the time except when eating, drinking and going out to pee.. She even pooped this morning for the first time since before the surgery. She will heal quickly like this. If she doesn't...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    After a long talk with the surgeon, we took her out of the hospital and brought her to where we live this week. He thinks she'll do much better with us but we can bring her back at any time if need be. Indeed, she's a whole world of better now than she was yesterday. We'll head for home tomorrow...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    She made it through surgery. None of the ultrasound studies were exactly right so it was a bit of a different situation than expected. The main surgeon handled it and called in another to help him. Three hour surgery. The tumor was into the vena cava and that made it a whole new ballgame. The...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    Thanks y'all. I think the babygirl will be good and I'm hoping my plants will be too. If we get back by the 25th, it should be no problem. I have most of the plants in the fabric sock pots and some are in plastic pots. Then they're in shallower tubs and those are in the usual larger, deep tubs...

    how do i make pure capsaicin crystals as hot as possible

    You didn't and you can't. You bought what you got and that's all it will ever be.

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    I was going to go for another jungle this year but life started getting in the way again. Don't mean it won't happen but does mean it won't happen as designed. We started getting everything ready last year and it was looking good. I started all the plants in January. Everything on schedule...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    Anybody still think climate change is a conspiracy theory? Here's the tippy-top of a budding 65' Yellow Poplar I just knocked down to get it out of the way of the soon to come new septic tank drainfield. Hey tree, here's a news flash... it's not spring yet.

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    I think I'm okay with compost for a while. The 6 yard load of shredded tree trimmings the power company line crew dumped after the hurricane last year has melted down very nicely. I also have two buckets of solid black soldier fly compost they've been making for me for a couple of years...

    2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

    That North Georgia Candy Roaster squash kicks butt. I started a few seeds in gallon pots in August. After I finally sprayed enough times to kill off that stinking gripeweed that went totally out of control over the summer, I put one of them in the ground late in September just for giggles...
