When I first bought this property it was overgrown with brush and trees. There were five rickety old houses that would have fallen down decades earlier if it weren't for the trees growing up through them and all around them. It was a mess! But I started at one end with a chain saw and worked my ways across five acres clearing out the brush, trash trees and old rotten structures. When I was done, the landscape looked like a park with old cherry, pear and apple trees scattered about in no particular design under the high shade provided by the century old native pecan trees. I excavated a spot in the center of these lots and poured footings, ran sewer and water lines and began to build this house. I ran into problems with the rest of the property because I failed to treat the stumps of the trees that I cleared and neglected to keep it mowed. The brush and trash trees began to reclaim the land that I had cleared and I wanted an easy fix so I bought some goats. Those goats started eating but they didn't eat the brush. Instead they ate the bark off of all the old fruit trees killing all but the big pecan trees. Those goats chewed on building materials and crapped all over the building site. Whenever I tried to work on my house, those goats would run up and butt me from behind with their horns. I ended up trading those goats to some Salvadorians in exchange for help clearing out the brush and killing the stumps that the goats failed to accomplish. The Salvadorians used the apple wood to cook the goats and used the wood from the trash trees to cook the stumps.
Sorry for the long story but I can't hear the word goat without being reminded of that experience.
LOL Well I can see where that would be an experience you wouldn't want to repeat.
Not that it matters now but the goats could have been put on leashes (metal) that restricted their reach. But regardless I understand your horror at the word ... goat.

Hey WA.
Yeah, I save a lot of seeds.
I used to go through a lot of trouble fermenting tomato seeds, but the last few years I've had pretty good luck taking the simple way out.
I just take the seeds and put them in either a plastic bag or a glass jar and leave it for a couple of days and then clean them up, dry them and store them in an envelope.
I guess maybe they're still fermenting when I leave them set a couple of days, but it's a lot less trouble than the way I used to do it and I seem to get pretty good germination.
I save pumpkin seeds, cantaloupes and peppers all from heirloom stock I've been raising for years.
There are two kinds of the pumpkins. The big ones I collect, clean, dry and store. The small ones I leave in the pumpkin and just let it dry up. In the spring I break it up and take the seeds out.
I have corn seed I've been saving every year since I was a kid that dates back from my great grandfather.
I usually pick the healthiest stocks with the best ears before it's even ready and when it's time to harvest I just shell it off and let it air dry a while longer then bag it up.
When I was in the military my mom would plant a little patch of the corn every year and save the seed for me.
I usually buy heirloom seeds for a lot of stuff each spring too. There are some great source for them these days.
It's mostly pretty easy as long as you remember to dry and store them properly. I use paper (bags or envelopes) because you don't want to keep them in anything that's completely airtight.
That's great Jax. I have saved some been (seeds)? Not sure that you call them seeds. But I've done those a little differently. When I'm done picking we still have more beans and I let them dry on the vine. Then I pick them and store the dryed bean till the next spring when I plant them. But I knew I couldn't do things like tomatoes the same way. Is your corn white or yellow? I love the white corn it seems to be sooo much sweeter.
I wanted to ask you if you had ever heard of the Ruth Stout's gardening methods. I used them some years back and I loved it. You never till the soil and it stays moist and fertile. I had broccoli plants that were 4' high with lush green leaves. It didn't seem to want to head so I asked an older lady in my neighborhood why it wasn't. She said to pick the bottom leaves off and I wasn't to throw those leaves away. She said to cook and eat them. Well I did and after eating the leaves they were so good I didn't really care if the broccoli headed or not. But they did. Large and beautiful vegtibles. I hardly had to use fertilizer at all. But it takes about 3yrs for the ground to get productive to that point.
If you want to know more about the method you can read some about it here:

I loved the method but my husband has two tillers and loves to use them. lol

Thanks to everybody for giving this a try.
I know what the others will make of this post and I don't care.
I wanted to say thanks to everyone that posted here.
Jax please let us know how you're doing and come back soon. You'll be missed.

Things are good here and I'm doing great. A little busy, but happy.

I'll post from time to time for a while yet, but Topix has gone toxic and I can't see spending the kind of time I used to arguing with people that are just foul.

Hope you've been having a good weekend.

I had a very good weekend.
I believe that Topix has been toxic from before my first time posting. That was some 8or9 yrs ago. I'm a stubborn person if you couldn't tell. What has made the posting possible for me are the people here that are good people. Those like yourself that have intelligence and integrity. I believe that we have far more of them then we have of those that deal in hate and vulgarity. If it wasn't for their socks they would be few and far between.
But come look me up now and then. I'll be around.

Hey Frees...How's it going? I've been wondering the threads lately. Stopped posting at the ole President has failed thread for now.
I hope you're doing great and some time in the future I may run into you around here.

Hey WA!

I made a couple of posts there just to let them know I was still around.

Need to get back outside and get busy now though.

Hope it's been a good day for you.

Well posi and ralf seem to be posting where ever I post. I asked posi if he missed me. lol
alf talked about killing all of the illegals and making slaves out of their children.
A real nice guy huh? I think he does represent the radical right extremists well. A little Nazi wanna be.

I wouldn't put anything past that one, but I have noticed that his rhetoric gets worse when he feels like he's not getting enough attention.

From the looks of that thread he's been playing second fiddle to the "weather man" for a few days now and that has to be hard for an ego like his to deal with.

"kill the illegals and make slaves of their children" huh?

Sounds more like GR than ralff, but he has been learning at the feet of the master lately so who knows how bad he'll get.

Anyway, I may drop by there again before I go. No reason to try and have a conversation with any of them. They're all dumb as rocks and nasty to boot.

Hi Jax......I couldn't believe that anyone would say something like that. Bringing back slavery is what the radical right would love to do as long as it was minority slaves and not themselves. They really do sound more and more like Nazi wannabes. It's really scary to think that we have so many Americans that would walk the same path as those that killed the Jewish people......but we do.

Hey WA.

I was surprised to see this thread pop up.

I don't know what it is with these people.

They wave the flag, thump the bible and spout rhetoric about the "true constitution" all the while promoting ideas and policies that are clearly un-American, un-Christian and antithetical to everything our Constitution stands for.

No to amnesty or comprehensive immigration reform.
Appoint Arpaio as Immigration Czar
LOL...Arpaio was lucky to stay out of prison, but he's been tamed so it's no big deal.

Anyway, if you want to keep posting here go right ahead.

We'll bump this thing right back into the hot thread category.

Won't hurt my feelings a bit.

:)
Now how about an answer to that Ruth Stout gardening question.

I really see some very unnerving simularities between the things they say and the things said by the Nazi government. I don't care to live in the type of Country they would turn this Country into if they get the chance.

Why even look at that failed thread? It will only bring you down. Bad vibes over there. Not good for the soul.

I really enjoyed looking at the evening sky tonight. Watching the waning moon low in the western sky dancing with Venus with Saturn looking down on the two was relaxing. The way the sunlight reflected off the earth onto the dark side of the moon gave it fullness. It was a sight to see and refreshed my soul with the grandeur of the universe.

I could picture the beauty you described. I'm sure it was wonderful.
I know that thread is poison but as I found that some came and posted on the threads I moved to I figure it really doesn't matter where I post. Those that want to behave like bullies and brats will do it anywhere. I can't control them nor can they control themselves.
