How to grow lots of green onions/scallions on the cheap

For this year’s garden I asked a certain somebody to get me green onion bulbs from the garden center. She returned with yellow (normal) onions but we didn’t realize until 2 weeks after planting. Luckily the web is full of amazing stuff and people and we learned this amazing trick. Thank you so much Jane … Continue reading

About My Worm Factory

Previously I explained some of my motivations and benefits of Becoming a Worm Wrangler. AKA a “vermicomposting system.” Now I’m going to show you the most luxurious worm habitat that I could possibly come up with. A past and highly uneducated attempt at a DIY worm bin resulted with a very tragic, and quite disgusting end for … Continue reading

I’m Worm Wrangling!!! Why?

I have cowboys, ranchers, and shepherds scattered about my genealogy.  I wonder if my ancestors and kin would be proud to learn that I have now grown up to become a worm wrangler? I must confess that I have worms! However, instead of going to the Doctor seeking remedy as a normal, more sane person would do, I have … Continue reading

My Mobile Strawberries

Last year we began strawberry plants in the Topsy Turvey Upside Down hanging strawberry basket. We had dreams and aspirations of oodles of strawberries hanging next to our door.

How to drive really fast and get where your going at the same time as grandpa

Once upon a much too short lunch break, I came up on that Cadillac on the freeway.

Day 3, gets ugly. Calling in reinforcements!

“Third’s the worst, seconds the same, first’s the best of all the game.” I have learned that when it comes to acclimatizing to a non-habit, the third day is by far the most extreme in my body. It’s my mile 20. Known by runners as “The wall.” A nonsmoker’s system creates all sorts of gnarly … Continue reading

Day 2 of my War on Tobacco, Wounded, but pushing forward!!!

I want you to hold your breath. Now keep holding it. Don’t breath… go as long as you can… feel your heart speed up? Feel your arms begin to tremble… an uneasyness starts to swell and then panic begins to set in. WHOOOSH you gasp for air and suddenly feel relief. Phew! For me it … Continue reading

Emancipation from Tobacco – Day 1

My head sunk deep into warm caress of the the pillow; I wake pleasantly this morning feeling fantastic! I open my eyes and think, “I sure hope it’s a sunny day so I can go out and play in the garden this afternoon!” I sit up, and KABOOM. I feel as though a grenade has … Continue reading
