What plants talk about


When we think about plants, we don't often associate a term like "behavior" with them, but experimental plant ecologist JC Cahill wants to change that. The University of Alberta professor maintains that plants do behave and lead anything but solitary and sedentary lives. What Plants Talk About teaches us all that plants are smarter and much more interactive than we thought!

Still In the back 40 but great thread!

Living here on the side of the mountain, my garden has to be terraced. I actually have to use a rope and kinfa repel to get to the plants.

What ever it takes!

Was clearing out my polytunnel today and just randomly digging in the earth brought up a good bucketful of potatoes. Got some whites that sprouted from leftover Jersey royals and those delicious Desiree reds. There must be tons more that I haven't found yet. I reburied these to keep them fresh and took the smallest ones and put them aside to sprout so I can start a new crop.

I planted them last spring, grew through the summer and stayed perfect in the ground all winter.

So what herbs or plants I should be looking for in late winter spring?
I have a bone to pick with gravity. If that's it's real name. Always making me feel fatter then I should be and telling me I can't fly. Who do you think you are?

They say kale is a good winter crop and actually improves with a good hard frost. It's generally an all year round crop though so probably good to start any time of the year. I really must try some of that this year.

Leeks seem to do very well over winter. I planted some last year (regrettably in the shade, took longer to grow) and they are perfectly happy outdoors and slowly getting fatter.

I probably should have watched some videos.


I understand the purpose of all that flower scent is to keep Birds and Critters from eating the seed before it matures . This is why Medicinal Value drops so quickly at maturity of the plant .

Two weeks ! Whew . . . Much older seed may be longer than a day or three soaking .

Cannabis / Hemp seed is protected by a waxy coat , to prevent drying out too much to remain viable . Soil organisms break this down in a few days when the weather warms up enough for them to wake up for the Season . For small Home Gardeners a bit of very fine sand paper , or better yet an emery board , is useful as can be . Simply scratch the seed to bust through the wax layer . Emery boarding the seed ridge from top to bottom is most effective .

Soak seed in clean water with just a few drops of Household Hydrogen Peroxide per liquid ounce . A drop of Super Thrive per 8 ounces is also helpful . Drop the seeds in and swirl around a bit to free any residual bubbles . Do this a couple of times . Overnight the freshest seed will absorb enough water to plant and sink to the bottom . Later sinking seed either did not get a clean scrape or should otherwise sink within 48 hours .

( Sure do hope Missouri finally passes the Hemp Bill and places Hemp in the unregulated status of Agricultural Crops )
