  1. Try to find or fix something and go about it all wrong? Then the light comes on and you just want to kick your own ass for being so stupid? I am 2 minutes into wanting to do just that, kick my own ass. My wife just volunteered to do it for me, if I am unable to. Here it is: I have an old Golden Harvester planter that works just like an Earthway. It was bought at a yard sale for $5, but it only has one plate and I like it way better than the overpriced/overhyped Hoss seeder. I don't want to buy a set of plates for an Earthway, if they won't fit. I have been trying to find plates for the GH

  2. If you do have the older Golden Harvester planter, then its plates are interchangeable with Earthway. 100% positive on this one, I had both until someone backed over the G.H. with the lawnmower. Still use its plates on the Earthway to this day.

  4. Willie the Bella Rosa tomatoes, under the care of a top notch gardener like yourself, can be utterly unbelievable! I have grown them for about 5 years now, and they are an excellent tomato. I still like Dixie Reds the best, but B. Rosa's are neck and neck with them. That is some pretty tomatoes

  6. picked 2 buckets of rattlesnakes, got my first ripe tomato,picked squash and cukes, started working on moving electric fence from one end of the garden to the other. Humidity made me stop before I finished, so I have a radio playing. Coons know corn is almost ready just like deer and peas

  9. Miracle grow does make a seed starting mix that I have had excellent results from. It obviously does not have the pre-emergent added and works well. I use a different variety ( I think it Is Fertilome) but when I can't get it I will buy the MG instead. Just don't buy the potting soil to start seeds in.

  11. I am anxious to try seed starts this fall after finding this out. What a s****y thing to do, and it does explain a thing or two like certain cells or cups not having seeds germinate even after repeated attempts

  12. I've had MUCH better results starting seeds in straight perlite than in miracle grow. Tried it as a lower cost experiment for hydroponics, worked very good if transplanted at an early stage.

  13. I agree with both of you. The last MG potting soil I bought would have been better marketed as "Wood Chip Mulch". I used it in some seed starting trays (flowers) that never came up. I guess nothing grows in just straight bark. So I did salvage the next seed starting venture by cutting it with Perlite and my own compost.

  14. My livestock guardian dogs live with my sheep but they keep the coyotes away with their barking rather than fighting and we have fences tall enough with hot wire on top that we haven't had any sheep losses.

  15. My wife and I are avid hikers and mountain folk (don't ask me why we live in the flattest state in the union... lol). It's been a frustrating year for us with 3 cancelled trips because of the voluntary financial suicide being sponsored by a lot of states. Anyway, we decided to hell with it, we will just take an old fashioned road trip. We are leaving Saturday for a SE US loop through Mississipi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky. Along the way we will hike Providence Canyon in Georgia, Cummins Falls in Tn., Red River gorge in Ky. and the Pinhoti trail in Alabama. Also on the agenda

  16. Actually, my first reaction was to laugh. Such stupid,stupid people...it just amazes me! . Of course, we have "imported" only the best and the brightest (HA!) from other countries, have we not, and then showered them with "free stuff" off the backs of hardworking, law abiding taxpayers. The results are so apparent!!

  17. I had an amusing thought(amusing?).... maybe the overwhelming response was all the Washington state people signing up, since the mayor of Seattle put a message out for people to please grow home gardens and give the food to the anarchists in the CHAZ autonomous zone!!! Seems they are getting hard up for food(and much else,too) ....LOL!! When I read that in the news, I said how can people get so unbelievably stupid.... destroy everything and then wonder why you have nothing!!. Then say you want your own zone where you make your own rules and where no one else can come in but forget you need

  19. Since you said it, I will admit I don’t eat tomatoes either. Love ketchup, but not tomatoes.
