  1. Welcome to the forum Momma Dirt. Nice to have you here.
  2. Welcome to the forum bemanning722.
  3. Good to see you here Steve.
  4. Hello davidjrtx. Come on in, the water's fine.
  5. Welcome to the forum Fespo.
  6. Welcome LaFarm, or is it La Farm. French like?
  7. Welcome Grumman! Might be his timezone PawPaw.
  8. Now you're thinking outside the box.
  9. Just for fun checkout the price of postage stamps from the founding of the post office until about 1954. Then look at the rate of increase up to today. Here is a link
  10. If it oinks, I can get it from him. Heck can get one that I have to chase around if I wanted too. Will try this though. Was contemplating making a small smoke house.
  11. I think my mother still has the wrapping paper from when I was a kid. I have a few of the Sears, J.C. Penny and Montgomery Wards catalogs from the 60's and 70's. I used to have my kids look through them just for fun. Like you said, most are dog eared and worn with scribbles in them. I still do the same with seed catalogs. I hate the online ones. Two showed up yesterday in the mail.
  12. The weather should be a little cooler this upcoming year. Don't know if that will affect insect pressure or not. I am lucky to not have those bugs here where I live. This summer I was picking between 80 and 120 squash a day. Started to get hard to get rid of them. My chickens really like them though.
  13. A guy down the road from me raises hogs. I trade him vegetables for pork. He or his family usually take care of the processing, but I might try that this next spring. Thank you.
  14. Have you tried planting beneficial flowers along with your squash? Flowers like Marigold, Chrysanthemums, and especially Nasturium keep away vine eating pests. they also spiff up the garden. Diatomaceous Earth is your best friend as a gardener. It will help manage a long list of insect pests. Get food grade if you want. I just use the type they use in pool filters. Not sure how you could do anything to it to make it food grade because it is nothing but ground diatomes anyway. Mostly just sprinkled on the ground under the plants. I use it to control earwigs and ants.
