  • Look around you as you read this, you will probably see a wall close by.  That wall protects you; it keeps out the wind and the rain.  Walls hold up our roofs and hold in the heat.  Walls help define our homes and our workplaces, walls are all around us.

  • Thirty years ago, if you mentioned soil science, compost, vermiculture or mycorrhizal fungi to the average gardener they would have scratched their head and laughed.  Today these are words that gardeners are beginning to understand and take seriously as they learn the value of adding organic matter to their gardens.  You can buy organic matter or you can generate it yourself You likely have all the tools you need already.

  • Fall is a busy time for apple growers. Ripening times vary from year to year depending on the weather. If apples have coddling moth damage, they will drop up to two weeks before the crop is ripe.

    The best and most time-tested method of judging when to pick fruit is the taste method. When enough starch has been converted to sugar and the flavor is developed, the fruit is ready to eat. Fruit continues to ripen in cold storage, so pick fruit before it is ripe if you want to store it.
