Re: Someone say something

The wind has brought my greenhouse down, so that's what I should be doing today. It's still quite windy, though - and I've just not got the up-and-go... :( All my little plants will be squashed, anyway. Oh, no, Ina! That is a nasty setback. Will it be a big job to rebuild it? Do you have plants in ...

Re: Someone say something

I updated my avatar. :) We're not doing much with the garden this year. We have strawberries ripening, and the raspberries are doing okay. The asparagus has been neglected for a few years, and we shouldn't have picked any last year, so it's looking pretty sickly this year. Neither of us has the dedi...

Re: Someone say something

We are still waiting for spring here, even though today is suposedly the first day of it. At least we didn't have to shovel after last night's non-storm. I planted daffodil bulbs along the driveway last fall. I really want the snow to melt so they can start growing. We are going to re-plant strawber...

Re: Dangerous weather

Not even tempted to plant anything here. We had 40 cm of snow yesterday, up to 1 metre in drifts. I spent all day with the snowblower and shovel digging out.

Re: Wooden Pallets

Wood treatments that will preserve the wood are generally poisons. I would only use untreated wood in a veggie garden. Yes, it will eventually rot. I'd rather have the wood rot than my body.

Re: Greenhouse!!!

Congratulations on the new greenhouse! I wanna see pics!

I can't imagine why a greenhouse wouldn't be considered agricultural. Growing veggies is kinda the definition of agricultural, isn't it?

Re: Someone say something

The Question - Is (or can) self sufficiency be ecologically sustainable in the modern world ? That is indeed the $7,000,000,000 question. I get upset when people tell me that there is not a problem with food supply, that it is just a problem of distribution. They say that "green revolution&quo...

Autumn is here

http://www.dulcemelos.ca/test/FallColours.jpg Our maple trees are changing colour. It has been a warm, very dry summer, and that trend is continuing into the fall. Normally this weekend (Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada) is the peak of the fall colours, but everything is late this year. The tree...

The installer was probably too lazy to hide them. It's a bit of a pain when retrofitting wires, especially if the run is over a long distance.

Woodshed

I have just finished building a new woodshed. The old one was too far away from the house to haul wood in a storm, too small, and too airtight, despite being rickety. Our objectives for the new one were: 1. close to the back door, with no intervening gates; 2. not too far from the driveway for deliv...

Sorry 'bout that. I guess it could be seen as alarming. I am actually more alive than ever.

Well, keeping you all totally up to date might be TMI. :wink: But I plan to stick around here and discuss anything ish-y in my life.
