Super Bugs, E.coli…


The media seems to be all over the Superbug issue. Marketplace on CBC claims this: [Canadians are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. As a result, people are getting sicker and are taking longer to get well. It is now not uncommon for people to be administered antibiotics through an IV because the usual drugs in pill […]

Did the Bug Salsa Work?


Yes and No. The Bug Salsa seemed to get rid of the vast majority…and what a majority indeed! A few days later though I noticed a few congregated on some young tips of the Pepper plant in question. I also noticed – sadly – that many of the leaves were drying up and wilting. I couldn’t see […]

Tomatoes


Some Tomatoes are more susceptible to Blossom End Rot (BER) than others. It seems like any condition that causes them stress invites the cancerous blight. I say ‘cancerous’ because I think that stress is what causes deformed cells and deteriorating cancer-causing conditions in us as well. Why not ‘plant cancer’?   The stress this year was not […]

Growing Disasters


I’ve had lots of fun with the garden this year. Trying new things always makes life interesting! Only one of my thumbs are green. The other is yellow. Yellow isn’t usually a good colour in things other than flowers and corn. The white strawberries grow fast and wild. They are wildly invading the red strawberry […]

The winner is…


Anna-Marie gets the applause. She guessed parsnip roots were on the plate in the post “What’s for Supper?” For some strange reason, this spring’s crop were all roots except for a little 1-2″ / 3-5cm round ball. I had a big bag of them. I pondered on whether they would be worthwhile. The roots held […]

I’ve planted the Supersweet Corn


As I was saying, Hubby keeps me busy, but all I have to do is suggest that I have to plant the corn, and he’ll allow any time needed. Once we tasted the Supersweet corn fresh out of the garden, there is no option but to grow it. I am especially surprised that I can […]

What’s for Supper?


I just love eating what I have grown or made myself. Tonight’s supper is Deer (Venison sounds more culinary pleasing) Rib Steak. We didn’t grow it, of course, but we hunted it, butchered it, etc. I put my own BBQ sauce over the top. I made homemade French Fries (I have my own ketchup recipe-extra spicy) and […]
