This year I started writing articles for the new publication The Ag Mag, published by my friend and fellow artist Carolyn Blakeslee.
She sent me an online link to the March issue last week, which includes my article The Horrifying Secret to Becoming a Great Gardener.
I like the final graphic design… I laughed when I saw it.
loved this article and the principle of killing many plants leading to eventual success. Guess I will keep trying and give more thanks for the successes!
Keep up the good work
Thanks, Mom – I appreciate it. Love you. Hope those Seminole pumpkins are going to pull through!
Great article as usual, seeing you more and more in great places!
As a status from my triumphs and tribulations food forest, I thought my starfruit got whacked by the frost, but to my surprise it is sprouting branches and leafing out like there is no tomorrow. Same with my katuk, i have them up against the south wall, and they are coming back just fine.
Now as for my cassava, I cut and stored cassava cuttings as always, to start in the spring. But I left many of the trees intact through the winter. We did;t really have a freeze this year, and as you know frost was minimal. Will the cassava’s leaf out and continue to grow or should I cut them down and let them come back from the root? They are still green under the thin bark, but are showing no signs of sprouting, I may be a bit early in my expectations, and may to be a bit more patient.
