Stinging nettles are quite amazing plants, full of qualities both medicinal and nutritional, but who cares when their blistering touch burns like judgment and brings you to tears?

Setting aside the fact that in the old days people allowed themselves to be whipped with nettles as a folk remedy against arthritis Read more…

at the end of harvest

On 26, Oct 2013 | No Comments | In edibles, plants | By All Year Garden

I picked the last of the veggies today, happy to see the carrots really developed roots and sad to mark the end of this year’s gardening season. Despite the chaotic mess the little vegetable patch was reasonably productive (see table) Read more…

After the beetles ate my emerging pepper plants to the ground before they had a chance to grow the third set of leaves I decided it might be a good idea to replace them with already grown plants, since starting a new set from seed at this time would have been an exercise in futility. Read more…

first tomato
