It was 36 degrees last night. it was almost 75 degrees the day before. 60 degrees now. So far it looks like my tomatoes and peppers made it thru the night using the direct winter growing method in my beds. I will know in the next couple of days.
here's a video with using your air space beneath the sky for growing.Very Happy

my goal this year is to stop those flea beetles and cucumber beetles on my cucumber. eggplant and tomatoes. Nematodes will be added through compost tea. But I'm going to add some from Arbico . This is a good video showing simple application and discussing results. Anyone using beneficial nematodes?

Has, I never realized how big your lot is!  You definitely have room for a nice orchard.  Totally jealous. Wink

I am removing my worm tubes this spring.  Feeding the beds with homemade compost seems to be enough to keep them thriving at this point.  I'm thinking about putting some of them in dirt areas that are covered with wood chips.  I like them as a way to get rid of small batches of kitchen scraps.

hass55.  GOATS.  When my DH and I had a small pub in England, there was a paddock included.  To keep the grass down a neighbour who kept goats placed a couple of goats on tethers to nibble down the weeds.  He would bring them out in the morning and place them another circle so that eventually everything got nibbled down.

It got the paddock good enough so the the current archbishop of the day (1978) the  Archbishop of Canterbury, the Right Reverend Robert Runcie was able to have his helicopter land safely so that he was able to preach to the villagers.  I had a ten minute ride in his helicopter, and I remember how he had to take his crook everywhere with him.  As it was not a folding one, I had his crook across the back of my neck.  Very Happy
