Oh shit.... that just reminded me....

I got about 25 potatoes plants I haven't dug up yet. They are all over grown with weeds, but I bet there are still some nice ones...

I forgot all about them  Lmao  Facepalm

Well off to dig up some taters  popnana

I bet there will be some good ones ... mine were overgrown with weeds also ... had little time to weed the patch this year... Cheers

i truly believe this .......

Many economic and social historians have considered the Essenes the world's first social reformers on a comprehensive scale.

Their brotherhoods were partly cooperative. Each member of the group had his own small house and a garden large enough for him to grow whatever he especially desired. But he also took part in communal activities wherever his service might be needed, such as in the pasturing of animals, planting and harvesting of crops most economically grown on an extensive basis.

They had great agricultural proficiency, a thorough knowledge of plant life, soil and climatic conditions. In comparatively desert areas they produced a large variety of fruits and vegetables of the highest quality and in such abundance they periodically had a surplus to distribute to the needy. Their scientific knowledge was such that they could do all of this in a comparatively few hours each day, leaving ample time for their studies and spiritual practices.

Nature was their Bible. They considered gardening educational, a key to the understanding of the whole universe, revealing all its laws, even as does the acting body. They read and studied the great book of nature throughout their lives, in all their brotherhoods, as an inexhaustible source of knowledge, as well as of energy and harmony. When they dug in their gardens and tended their plantings they held communion with the growing things, the trees, the sun, soil, rain, from this forces they received their education, their pleasure and their recreation.

One of the reasons for their great success was this attitude towards their work. They did not considered it as work but as a means of studying the forces and laws of nature. It was in this that their economic system differed from all others.

The vegetables and fruits they produced were only the incidental results of their activities; their real reward was in the knowledge, harmony and vitality that they gained to enrich their lives. Gardening was a ritual with them; a great and impressive silence reigned as they worked in harmony with nature creating veritable kingdoms of heaven in their brotherhoods.

Yesterday,

I rebuilt one of the mounds the hounds "tilled."

Chuckle

Then planted:

Bok Choy
Lettuce
Cilantro
Mustard
Basil.

May be a little late for basil, but I came up with a trick this spring:

Asian grocery stores have basil seed for use as a spice, and East Indian/Pakistani grocers have mustard and coriander(cilantro) seed in bulk, so does the Mexican spice aisle in most grocery stores these days.

So for $1.99 I get something like ten thousand seeds in stead of 50-100 seeds at the nursery.

And it has worked for every seed type I've tried so far.

Chuckle

CHEAP!

Yeah3

Also, the alfalfa I planted this spring is coming up, and maybe the vetch.

(didn't know they were fall crops) but the seeds waited and sprouted when the seasons changed.

Cheer
