I just learned that some veg plants poop out after a while of transplanting. I never transplanted a tomato. I have always just thrown the seeds of my farmers market tomatos in the back yard by the house where the rain gutter floods. Well, after three years of throwing seeds, last year in NYC, I had the most amazing crop of my favorite cherry tomatos come up! Now I wish I had a pic to share...
This should be an easy project to complete. Just time consuming..
I have about 8 Viburnum opulus seeds and would like to trade for Witchhazel, seed for seed and or herbal medicinal edible ground cover flowerings. I also have common Arrowhead Sagittaria lutifolia. Correction to Dan, I thought that I was ordering Tipo tambo but it is the waterplant native potatoe Arrowhead. The seeds are small and I have a packet with 1/4" seed at the bottom left.
If you guys stop revieving books, I will cry. Ive recently lost several books and cannot replace them right now.
I was soo happy to see this email content. The browsing reader would never be able to search the content of these books like amazon and half dot com used to do, even if you did know the titles.
I have taken Geoff's PDC course. I permed a historic brownstone in Bronx. Ive since moved from that property that was my home. Currently in FL. I have
construction knowledge but dont do any myself. I would like more info please.
Here is what I found.
http://www.rockymountainmattress.com/ This Co. sells the organically made Dunlop latex by itself and by size. A single xlong would be 49/50" by 84". This latex is one of the layers that makes the organic mattresses soo expensive.
Here is the best cover material for the mattresses per material with all of the concerns.

So we finally spoke with a friends mom in Turkey. She says that a 50"/84" will need the wool of 22 sheep. There was a woman speaking with Paul that was talking about organic wool for clothing and so this shouldnt be a problem at least for one and I also saw the offer for wool from someone else. If I could fly to Turkey with a camera, I would Utube the making!
Take the unwashed wool and put it in a tub of warm water.
Mix it with a dowell the size of a broom handle to loosten the debrit then beat it until fluffy and covering the tub top, then beat it again with a smaller size dowell rod, maybe 1/2-3/4" until more fluffy. If the quality is good, it should foam and begin to brighten to white.
You can add salt, borax, and/or boric acid to wash. Then dry the wool on drying racks in sun and/or heat.
Thats all I have for now. I think were getting a pattern from her.
I got this email and now can comment on this topic because I also priced natural bedding years ago and they were $1,000. I have a friend whos parents make the cotton cover wool stuffed mattresses in Turkey. Hes going to see how much it will cost to make and send a couple covers and specifics about the stuffing.
They wash in borax. They stuff new wool as needed every year. I dont know about flammability but will ask.
Im looking for a place to live and work on and learn land development and improvement in any/all areas
of natural gardening/farming. I am 49 with a Jack Russell mix. Ive taken Geoffs PDC course and developed a 20/30' backyard in NYC. Currently in FL.
Would like to stay in the east, southeast region of US.
Open to any work share opening.
Finally made it to Gainesville FL and would like to start a small business with a small plot of commercial land. Ive found several places for rent to start for very low price and would like to settle in. I am open to relocating for this.
