hey there say, captain... or skully... :)

say, yes, i love it... use it for tea, too...

say, do YOU have any idea why my patch is getting dark speckles on the leaves... ?

it is a new patch, transplanted from the grandkids house... growing faster this year... but this year, far worse, than last year, it is getting kind of ruined, before i can use it...

have you ever seen this... i will try to post a picture later, when i post the other pics...

got to work on my "project" first though, or i will get behind on a goal...

wow, thanks for the share...always nice to hear from you...

wow, better to have miles of mint, i reckon, than miles of
poison ivey, huh... :) :)

Well, actually, there's miles of THAT, too. (dammit!)
I dunno about spots, though. It's wetter there, though, maybe?
Moldiness can kill plants in a lotta ways. Just guessin'.........

neebs,
There is always a greenhouse or nursery nearby that will tell you what is wrong with your plant, if you take them a sample.
They will always tell you about a fix also.
Thanks for posting.

EKAT: Sounds like it is morel-hunting time for you!

Yeah. . . it probably is.

I've never done it.

Had a botany professor who said the only 'shrooms he'd ever eat came from Safeway! Kinda scared me from getting into it!

:-)

But. . . lots of people do it up here. . . it's almost as big a business as picking/selling huckleberries.

Ekat: I grew up hunting morels and gradually expanded to a few other "hard to mis-identify-----and die" mushrooms. Even took a course once.

It is best to go out with a local----after studying a book on the subject.

I agree, it is a scary subject, for those that don't know.

Survival, I too have a Bumper crop of delicious Mulberries. Also have apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums and a ton of Anna apples. They grow abundantly here in my climate. Veggies include zucchini, yellow squash, saucer squash and tomatoes. Limited on what I can grow cause I'm not around much and they have to take care of themselves......and of course avocados. I also have a macadamia nut tree that produces many nuts every year. Oh yeah, couple of orange trees, lime trees, kumquat tree...a big sage bush and a few boysenberries. If I could afford H20 I'd be in fat city.

Nice to hear from Yo All and your growing adventures. :D lynnie

It's been a tough year for gardening. Last night I harvested the 'taters and a kuke, yummy! I have high hopes for my tomato(e)s and the raspberries are OFF THE HOOK. We ate salad for about ten weeks but now it's all bolted. The rains look to be starting up again, so maybe it's time to plant some more.

Fingers still crossed for the artichoke...

Heard of them from that song though...

whoa.... badass on the Lotus flower. Wow!

I didn't do much in the garden this year. It's a good thing as I'm moving out in a week. I did plant peppers and Basil. I'm about to harvest 27 million pounds of basil. Gallons of pesto anyone? Pesto Sushi?
