Got tied up for a week, and now I have an overgrown garden with powdery mildew. Not horrible but what do you do for powdery mildew?

I have a bunch of bicolor coming up under the nut trees. I like to mix them with garlic, butter, salt and pepper. Then wrap them and put them on the grill with whatever we are making.

Cool, but a little creepy. One of my bosses at work ordered precast burial vaults minus the top and asked them to cast in some drains. It cost him 90$ a vault plus $10 a vault for delivery. The wood on the bottom was only added so he does not have to bend down at all to tend them. It is one of my favorite ideas ever for a box garden.

Photo 27 Jul 7 notes Best lids ever. I ferment things as they come rip, and to be honest eat them too fast. These lids make small batches easy. I know you can make your own, but I like encouraging good inventions so I got a handful of them a year or so ago. I use them all the time.

Barter for your skills not only your stuff…. Around Christmas I stated intentionally bartering my tech skills. Nothing fancy or hard. Things like replacing broken iPad screams, or jail breaking home electronics. Did some survey/layout work for out buildings and helped a guy calculate some beams and bracing for barn repairs that sort of thing. My favored was getting fresh eggs for walking a coworker property and telling her what herbs and plants to pick and what they are good for. She also gave me a bag of nettles. I have only excepted in trade things made, grown, or produced by that person, Beer Wine, Eggs, Berries, syrup etc., and also work. I had a stump removed, a tree cleaned up, and got trained on then got to borrow some heavy equipment. It has been very fulfilling. I have always liked helping people, and people are more willing to ask for help if you give them a way to pay you back, and if you pick what they are proud of or good at you get paid with only the best. Guess I’m just saying that you can barter you brain too. We each have training and skills don’t be afraid to do some trading with them. I have made some new friends and had some fun times by looking for opportunities to help out in the areas I enjoy and am good at.

Today’s walk, I was walking in the valley and ended up in a huge patch of lemon balm. It smelled AWSOME. Ended up picking a good bit of it. I think I am going to add it to a wheat beer I have going in the basement, but usually I use it for tea. Also found some chanterelles and others. Good walk
