transplant one and once it gets established do another one
you must water the transplant every day for about a month until it gets established

I just wish I could find a video that shows step by step how to properly prune. All the articles I have seen, has written instructions that are confusing to a novice like me.

On The Trail To Preserve Appalachia's Bounty Of Heirloom Crops

Veteto is part of a growing number of seed savers who are helping revive heritage fruits and vegetables that are on the brink of extinction. And he says that most of the dedicated seed savers in Appalachia are aging, so there isn't much time left to help farmers keep cultivating these valuable antique seeds.

GMO Free USA

Time to plan your spring garden. How do we know if the seeds we buy for our garden are GMO free and have a low risk of cross contamination? We check the Council for Responsible Genetics listing to make sure the seed company has taken the GMO free "Safe Seed Pledge". HOWEVER - you should know that Seeds of Change is owned by Mars (GMO M&Ms, etc.) and Mars is on the wrong side of the fight for transparency and truth in GMO labeling. We do not suggest buying from Seeds of Change for this reason. (Thank you to Ralph Gallella for bringing this to our attention!)

You should know that seeds that are at the highest risk for GM contamination are corn, summer squash/yellow crookneck and zucchini... as well as alfalfa & papaya should anyone be in a climate where they can plant and grow papaya.

Now is the time to order your seed catalogs to choose what to grow in your spring garden. With more and more people taking back control of their food and growing some of heir own food, there is a chance the seeds you want may sell out if you don't order early. Happy GMO free seed shopping!

What's your favorite seed company?

Check the safe seed list here: http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/ViewPage.aspx?pageId=261

Secret Lawn Tonic Recipe From Golf Course Groundskeeper - Updated
by Paul Michael on 23

This recipe came from Tim Heffron, a former groundskeeper at a golf course. All you need are five common household ingredients and a 10-gallon hose-end sprayer. This recipe can be modified slightly for other less dry climates, but for areas like Colorado it works wonders. And it's a heck of a lot cheaper and more effective than the store-bought mixes.
You will need:
One full can of regular pop (any kind-no diet soda)
• One full can of beer (no light beer) 12oz
• 1/2 Cup of Liquid dishwashing soap (do NOT use anti-bacterial dishwashing liquid)
• 1/2 Cup of household ammonia
• 1/2 Cup of mouthwash (any brand)
Directions:
• Pour into 10-gallon hose-end sprayer (other sizes will work too)
• In high heat, apply every three weeks

The liquid soap is a wetting agent, helping the formula penetrate the roots.
The ammonia promotes growth and turns your lawn green.
The mouthwash does something you would never suspect mouthwash would do. It kills the bugs and grubs.
NOTE: Do NOT use anti-bacterial dishwashing liquid in the mixture as it will kill off important microbes in the lawn and soil that help "digest" thatch.
