It's so nice to see this thread picking back up again today. Wonder where Hemp and Blue are though... And OJG? AW must be busy outside, knowing him. Also wonder how Imposter is doing on that new job and the change jar refill caper? A couple more people are MIA here lately too.

Betty, I just looked on Ebay for some orange tomatoes and I found two different species that look like what I had last year. One is called an "Amanda" tomato and the other is called an "Orange Giant". Both are said to be heirloom plants. What do you think??

On another note, I have had a huge sounding helicopter hovering over my house for the last 5 minutes or so. It sounds like a "close encounters of the third kind" drama out there. My windows are rattling and that thing isn't moving on like they normally do during their search slash pot-o-copter seasons. I can feel the vibration of the blades beating in my chest, that's how loud it is. Wonder if a criminal is on the loose? If someone is running from Mr Johnny Law, they'd be dang smart to avoid Nopes place. I stay locked and loaded, one or more of my guns are within reach at all times.
What the heck is going on out there in my woods I wonder??

i gave up on starting them from seed...just started buying plants 9i have a patience problem with these sort of things which leads to over watering and over fertiilizing..... when i go get maters from him i will ask.... they were sooo good.
A month or so ago, I put seed in single serving yogurt cups that I save throughout the year for just that. I have some good size 'mater sprouts all ready to put out as soon as this danged weather decides to let me know what I should do, haha.

Green peppers and such, I buy at Lowes. I do have some Plum Granny seed that I want to spread out along the woodline this year. I saved them from last year. MAN, those things smell so good sitting in a container in the house each fall. Of course, pole beans are easy as pie to grow from seed and I have some set back, I'm ready.

One thing I have trouble with growing is corn for some reason. I don't know why..

Gonna try my hand at Cantaloupe this year for a change. I've never grown them before though, so I hope I'm successful. I adore cantaloupe. And honeydew melon as well.

actually, AW is being quite domestic indoors today. Laundered the bed linens and washed and ironed 7 Western Shirts. Those fake pearl snaps are tough to do, but sure look good when I am done. Maybe I ought to dress up and go out Two Stepping... not LOL After bending over the ironing board, this old man would have a hard time doing a one step or even putting on his boots. LOL

@Nope.. I am with you on the locked and loaded. I have several chambered and ready at any time.

I am ready to plant by Bibb Lettuce and green onions. I can make a meal of that wilted in hot bacon grease and a touch of white vinegar and served up with corn bread melting in butter.

I plan to plant Roma beans and Purple Hull peas (a southern thing) and about a 1/4 acre of Silver Queen corn. I raised the "Bodacious" corn last year. The Silver Queen takes longer but has longer ears.

My friend raised some kind of oblong shaped black tomatoes last year. They did not look all that good, but were quite yummy. I need to find out what they were.

There's not a gun in the world that will do you any good sitting around not loaded. That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it, LOL!!

I always get a chuckle out of people who leave their firearms unloaded. Locked up if you have young ones in the home, sure. But what the heck are the ones who don't have kids going to do if someone comes in on them at night? Grab that gun out of the nightstand and then ask the intruder to hold still while they load? Might just as well say "Oh by the way, can you stand still and then bend over for me while I shoot one of your butt cheeks off"! Bwaaahahaha.

Not to mention, if one of my critters happen to get into some kind of imminent danger outside, that's another a case where mere nano seconds can count. It could mean them living or dying. I'm not taking any chances either way.

All I have to do is aim.
(Or not. It depends on which gun I pick up first. I'm kind of partial to my 20 gage with those pretty little lead balls in the bright yellow shell casings, hehe. It must be a girl kind of thang).

Didn't see Blueminer posting, I hope he and his dad are doing okay. OJG? Hempburn? Hope everyone else is okay and getting ready for Spring/Summer.
This thread certainly is slowing down, I think mainly because we have run out of interesting topics to talk about. I have been spending much of my time on other websites browsing through hundreds of articles and I could literally spend hours each day posting interesting topics I have come across lately.

The following sites I think are very good in terms of wisdom and spirituality as it relates to current events:

http://truthseeker1313.com/
http://lucas2012infos.wordpress.com/2013/03/1...
http://jhaines6.wordpress.com/

As for current geopolitical news and editorials I have found these to be the best:
http://www.veteranstoday.com/
http://www.globalresearch.ca/
http://rt.com/
http://www.presstv.ir/
http://beforeitsnews.com/
http://www.pakalertpress.com/

What we are told on our mainstream media is very different from what reality is which is why I seek alternative news sources on the internet. You get a more fair and balanced perspective which I think is closer to the truth.

Good evening belie, how have you been. I was thinking about you mostly pertaining to that last paragraph. Earlier I was on a site I never seen before but it caught my eye due to the title. It is long so I am just posting a couple paragraphs. It is worth reading since those "booms" don't get in the news much, just like the sinkholes.

Does Uptick in Mysterious "Booms" Foretell Mega-Quake?
Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

Back in October, I wrote an article entitled “Numerous Reports of Mysterious Booms and Strange Lights Over South Carolina,” in which I described the sounds and vibrations heard and felt all across the Pee Dee region of South Carolina with some witnesses even describing strange lights in the sky at the time of the event.

These strange occurrences were eerily similar to those described by individuals all across the state of Michigan like Bob Powell of The Truth Is Viral, who was actually detained as a result of attempting to investigate the nature of these sounds and vibrations. Please see my article,“Investigation Continues Into Source of Strange Michigan Area ‘Explosions’ and Radiation Spikes” for a further description of what took place in Michigan.

Similar noises and vibrations were also felt in New Jersey around October, as I wrote in my article “New Mysterious 'Booms' Reported in New Jersey.”

Marion County dispatchers alone received more than 100 calls in ten minutes related to the “booms.”
The Post and Courier article, entitled,“’Pretty Good Shake’ hits area but what was it?” does, however, provide some interesting information when it states that the booms might have come as a result of the "Seneca Guns," a so-far-unexplained phenomenon felt along coasts around the world.” The article speculates that yet another series of booms in March 2011 were themselves the famed “Seneca Guns.”

For those unaware of this phenomena, the Seneca Guns, are described by the USGS in the following manner:

The term “Seneca guns” is just a name, not an explanation. It does not tell us anything about what causes these noises and shakings. The name originated in a short story that James Fennimore Cooper wrote during the 1800’s. The name refers to booms that have been heard on the shores of Lake Seneca and Lake Cayuga in New York State. The name has been applied to similar noises along the coasts of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. Similar booms are called Barisol guns in coastal India. These phenomena have also occurred in three widely separated places around the world. That’s about all we know about the Seneca guns.
Yet for all the inability to determine the nature of the Seneca Guns, we do know that such sounds and vibrations have been linked to earthquakes, with some of these booms occurring during earthquakes with varying intensity, with others occurring shortly before or after the earthquake actually takes place.

What might be particularly concerning to those living on the Eastern seaboard is the fact that these exact kinds of sounds were heard either before, during, or after the two of the biggest geological events on the East Coast to have occurred in American history – The 1886 Charleston Earthquake and the 1811-1812 New Madrid Earthquake.

There are also accounts which link “artillery-like” sounds occurring shortly before and during the New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-1812

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/03/does-upti...

As you know I am always watching the map and the Madrid Fault Zone. If you seen the map today it showed those icons on the map as soon as you click on it. Those "booms" I have not heard, at least not since the Armor Center left Fort Knox and went to Ga.

I hope you have a nice and warm evening. Thanks for the links. I might even check out the articles this activist mentions too.

For the BIRDS:

Raptor Resource Project
~ First Red-tailed Hawk Egg ~

The Red-tailed hawks at Eaglecrest laid their first egg today! Female Stitch immediately began incubation. She will likely lay one or two more eggs two days apart, with an incubation period of twenty-eight to thirty-five days before the eggs hatch.

Here is a video of egg #1:

19 funny photos of pets that are good for more than just cuddling

We all love cuddling up to Miss Mittens and scratching Fido behind the ears. But does that mean our furry companions can't also provide a little utilitarian value every now and then? We feed the silly creatures, give them baths, take them to the vet — and then there's potty training. Holding the remote or fetching a beer once in a while is the least they could do to. Click through these cute pet photos to see 19 ways to put your four-legged companions to work.

LOOK OUT
Experts on infectious diseases Thursday warned people to stay away from bats worldwide after the recent death of an eight-year-old boy bitten .
The boy last month became the third person to die of bat lyssavirus (ABLV), for which there is no effective treatment.

human-to-human transmission of the virus may be possible.

the boy was bitten during a family holiday .

Three weeks later he began to suffer convulsions, abdominal pain and fever, followed by progressive brain problems.

Doctors frantically tried to establish what was wrong and on day 10 of his admission the lyssavirus was detected.

He fell into a coma and died on February 22.

sigh...

well after some pretty extensive googling of tomato pics im convinced that im just going to have to ride out and ask him. i cant really tell by picture alone. i found a dozen or so really common orange variety tomatoes that grow well in ky... also found one that was completely white! you are right... all the ones i found were heirlooms so i bet he orders his seeds from somewhere really specific or saves them himself....

have you ever heard of a seed-saver program? its a good way to get a variety of seeds. most organic farmers that do the seed-saver programs dont charge for the seeds, you just have to send a pre stamped envelope for them to send the seeds back in. i was getting a good amount of seeds in the mail every so often but the last batch to two of envelopes i send out did not return before i moved last year. but that's how i got all my pole beans and corn last yr aside from the blue corn i bought from our local mill.

the Amish around here sell ears of bodacious and candy corn mostly.... like you i never have luck with corn and only partial luck with tomatoes..... my green thumb definitely leaves something to be desired. the only reason my beans and blue berries were a success last yr is because i picked and picked them...... thats my problem....i cant leave anything alone long enough for it to grow so i find that things like pole beans that thrive the more you pick the beans i have the best luck with..... we did get a couple small cabbages too.....

its a process but i am determined to have a good garden going eventually.... might be this yr... might be next yr if i kill everything again.....lol

i think i saw a pic of those black tomatoes also this evening.... i bet they are good... i was always told the redder the better for taste... which i have found to be wrong sense this past summer when i fell in love with the fruit stand guys tomatoes... but i would imagine that the black ones have all kinds of flavor. i would be interested to see what the white ones taste like too.

im thinking about doing with the corn the same as i did with the blueberries and pole beans. last year i planted in big rubbermaid tubs i had poked some holes in for draining.... thought it was a great idea to keep the weeds out of my plants and it work really well with both. but those are commonly grown out of five gallon buckets.... i wonder if i could do the same with corn... i have like twenty or so empty tubs right now.... i just wonder what all i could get to grow well in them.... thought about things like carrots and beets.... would keep critters from snatching them from below.... plus if i kept them on the porch.... they would have to get past the attack cat and the am staff first.

@Betty and Nope.. I typed a long winded thing about corn and it did not post. Essentially, the tubs would not be very productive for corn but would be good for viney plants such as tomatoes and cucumbers. Add table scraps, coffee grounds, potato peelings and egg shells to the dirt in each tub and surround the tub with old fence wire for the vines to climb up.
