Mystery Holes and Stolen Seedlings

Well, this is a first for us. In one of our beds, in the last 2 days, seedlings are disappearing. Where the seedling was is a small funnel hole maybe and inch or two across. Enough to see while…Continue

"We did peanuts this year and they did well. Only enough for a huge pot of boiled peanuts -- it's the southern in me. Don't forget that peanuts aren't big on good soil. They're all about sandy and hot."

"It is a curved-bill thrasher. This is their trademark. They usually only dig up very young seedlings. You can protect your garden with bird netting. Make sure it is raised up off of the ground at least 6 inches so they can't stand on it and…"

"Can you gt a photo of the holes? This would help. I have had problems with birds but they generally nibble the seedling down to the soil and don't leave a hole. I do have Thrushes and cactus wrens that digg around in the soil but it's…"

Mystery Holes and Stolen Seedlings

Well, this is a first for us. In one of our beds, in the last 2 days, seedlings are disappearing. Where the seedling was is a small funnel hole maybe and inch or two across. Enough to see while walking the garden. Stolen seedlings include ornamental corn, spinach, chives, and beets. Bigger stuff like cauliflower does not appear to have been bothered, however the bottom leaves of an eggplant are raggedly removed down to the veins on the leaves and it doesn't look like what happens when a bug is…See More

Sugar Baby Watermelons

"We thought the taste was a little flat, but chalked that up to maybe overwatering while ripening, or simply taking them off too early. We're cutting open another one tonight that we left on the vine longer and will hope for better. Have not…"

Sugar Baby Watermelons

"How did you like the taste and texture of the sugar babies? I have been harvesting them, and the color is not red throughout, the area around the seeds is mealy, and the flavor was just so-so. Just wanted to see if that was a unique experience and…"

Compost Share?

Not sure what forum to post in, so I'll leave this as a blog post for now.

Is anyone in the east valley interested in a compost share of a load from Singh Farms? I have a very cute convertible - it is not a truck ;-). If someone has a truck, I'd be happy to pay for the load, and maybe split 75/25? Does that seem fair? I'm in the Chandler area, near the mall.

Please let me know if you'd be interested, I'd certainly appreciate the help

Because everyone needs more banana bread

Good Morning!



Had a bit of a baking adventure this morning that has turned out well so I thought I would share it. I read several recipes about baking with sprouted wheat berries, and then sort of took off on my own this morning with the intent being banana bread. I don't bake in absolutes, so you may have to wing it a bit if you try this. As usual with my cooking, I've added all kinds of comments.



2/3 cup of sprouted wheat berries (plus a little more, since the jar was… Continue

Babysteps and Changes

I'm relatively new to this site. I'm relatively new to permaculture, sustainable living. We've wanted to, and we kept planning for that "someday" when we have the right property, "someday" when we have more room, "someday" when we don't have to ask permission for chickens and goats.



Sometime this summer we realized, that it was ok to start RIGHT NOW. Raised beds half full of desert concrete dirt spent the summer being layered like lasagna gardens, composting down, until a friend… Continue

Hi Linda,
I didn't leave you a comment when I found you on the PPG site. It was nice to meet you and Bob last night, you are informative and lively with your presentation, and I can see why you are an HR person. Thank you for signing up for the tour, you know how much we appreciate you and Bob's help and participation. See you soon.

Hi Linda - I am the Chiar person for the HR Committee which is really the Volunteer committee. I really need someone to train to do orientations and need someone to get our database completed. Drop me a direct line at doreen@phoenixpermaculture.net.

Thanks!!
