Peach, Plum, Pear fruit trees & Tulip spring flowers blooming

Last week was very cold and so I kept all the fruit trees covered--hoping that would protect the fruit tree blooms. It looks like the pear blooms and nectarine blooms survived but are wilted; while the other peach and plum trees waited till after the week of frost to bloom. There was lots of bees on those trees yesterday.



It's sad to say, but the 5 year old Peach tree I planted from Arborday.org died this year. I can at least say I got a fruit harvest off of it last summer, and…

Scary truth about America's diet RANT (food waste & unhealthy food consumption)

According to Ecowatch:"90 percent of the foods humans eat come from just 30 plants. Out of tens of thousands of plants we could eat, mankind chooses to consume only about 30 of them. It’s crazy to contemplate how limited our diets are compared to all of the different foods we could be eating".

A diet of 30 plants that humans consume is less worrisome that Michael Pollan's argument.

As mentioned in my…

Protest Thanksgiving (quotes)

"Imagine that Germany won World War II and that a Nazi regime endured for some decades, eventually giving way to a more liberal state with a softer version of German-supremacist ideology. Imagine that a century later, Germans celebrated a holiday offering a whitewashed version of German/Jewish history that ignored that holocaust and the deep antisemitism of the culture. Imagine that the holiday provided a welcomed time…

How to save seeds from common garden vegetables

One of the ways I dry lettuce, broccoli, radicchio is by covering and tying off with newspaper. Pull the plant out of the ground, cut off the root ball, then save the top of the plant with the dangling seedpods by wrapping the plant with newspaper, and tie with a string the top of the stem. Hang on a wall in the house or where ever is convenient to hang drying plants. This is usually a temporary method of drying, as this could encourage mold. The proper method…
