wAFFLE House stores their oiled cast iron pans near/in the broiler so that they dry out often.  You can do this at home and not need to remove them when using the oven.

A good guard dog is worth his weight in gold. My best, a dog who died recently, would attack any animal that came into the yard - sadly, even other dogs. The HUGE scary dog I have now won't attack them, but will chase them off. Getting the dogs to not sleep near the front door, but to patrol the yard on all sides is what I'd like. I have a few rabbits I'd like them to scare off. And an armadillo. But, it is partly my fault for letting the dogs sleep inside at night - out of the cold. I need to build some dogs houses and add a heating pad, I guess.

I am lazy and want this singles forum to be ORGANIZED !!!
Start by male and then female. I do NOT need to read what the females are looking for.
Call me crazy, but divided by region would be nice as well. I personally will not move to a cold area and I'd bet there are many who wouldn't want to leave the geographical area they are now in - maybe because of their kids or aging parents.

Are you East Asian by any chance? Or hot? LOL. I needed photos of YOU, not your upside down house. I am a pescarian, near-vegan, 44, 5'7 1/2" and quite thin. But, I have my own place. I would be willing to move somewhere warm for the PERFECT match...but, I am odd about my needs and desires.
How ever, there is an Asian woman online who might fit your desires more than I would. I can hook you up if you'll agree to help me find someone ! She isn't vegetarian, but LOVES animals. In fact, she has quite a few and constantly posts animal rescue stuff and petitions...as do I. But, she is smaller than me and younger. We are both bone-thin. Her name is Anna.

The dwarf comfreys seem to be another species, not the Russian deep-rooted type. Does anyone know or have anyone grown a few of each? There are two variegated varieties, too. I think i understood that the dwarfs are runners, so have much more shallow roots. This, too, may have it's place. But, curious as to what others experienced.
BTW, is there a vegan or nutrition forum here ?

Hi, do you have a source for this information? The info that I have - http://www.permies.com/forums/posts/list/80/1174#235692 says that comfrey is not a source of B12.

Thanks.



I am a pescetarian wishing to be vegan. If I was sure I could get B12 with eating soil or supplements, I maight do it. I, too, would LOVE any scientific info. I looked 2 hours online the other day to see if angelica keiskei really had the B12 all of the .coms were claiming it had. I didn't find one. None of the registered dieticians who are vegans and write books have mentioned plant sources, either. One did say it wasn't possible and that nori seaweed had only a form of B12 not used by the human body.

I read that wild sorrel is high in phosphorous and so should be used for that element in our compost beds (after making sure it is dead). I would guess that it means the soil there is rich in phosphorus, too.
If you cannot find a data base, is there anyway for internet users to chime in somewhere to mutually create one?

I'm clearing a north-facing hill in GA by myself, too, right now. I plan to grow shade-tolerant plants there: fiddle head ferns, gingers and other rhizome-type herbs, some greens...but, mostly perennials since many seeds need heat to germinate and I have flatter land for annual beds. I am thinking that I should alternate down the hill - shrubs-size hugelkulture, then short (under 2'), then shrub-size hugelculture again. Not sure yet. Still clearing it. I will try to keep them all low, though, so sun can reach them as well as possible.

I am worried about ground cover there, though. I don't have the money for bark for the paths and I doubt if clover or grass will be too happy there. An invasive ground cover may've begun to creep it's way there anyway - pennywort, I think.
