Please, please keep in mind, when you use ANY synthetic prescription drug, especially long term, that it WILL degrade either your liver or your kidneys in time, as those are the pathways any drug takes. So you must decide...are the symptoms you have or fear  bad enough to  risk your liver or your kidneys? If not,  then begin to wean off the drugs. Doctors will tell you this if you force them to. They do not often offer the info. If you read the inserts when you purchase , they will tell you as well.

At the moment, if you have ANY pneumonia-like symptoms you should be tested. if you are frail, or have respiratory weakness of any type, or have elderly or tiny ones at risk, watch them carefully and perhaps get tested if you have serious respiratory symptoms.. The CDC is concerned that  the 13% or so that will get a serious illness from this corona virus  will be overlooked if they have not traveled to China. The rest who GET the virus will just get flu symtoms that they will easily recover from. So , boost  your immune system, watch yourself and those around you for pneumonia and good luck!

Gynura, often called longevity spinach, has done great indoors this winter, with almost no help. It is a bit viny so I put a bamboo stick in the 8" clay pot when I brought it indoors and twist-tied up the vines and it has grown and grown. The leaves have a slight fuzz but they are a bit thick and very tasty raw. I have not sauteed them but I am sure they would be great. They are full of nutrients.  Highly recommend it as a houseplant and outdoors in summer. I planted it in a spot that had morning sun only but bright light the rest of the dday and indoors it has bright indirect light. I eat at least one large leaf a day!

Pretty awesome! I, too have wide feet and , since toe surgery, the shape of each foot is slightly different. SOOO hard to fit and feel comfortable. Let us know if you want to go into business!

Just so you all know. The link to Bountiful gGardens has not been good for a couple years. They folded.

Hi Bryant Redhawk,
Sorry if I am not replying correctly...still trying to figure out this site. I will definitely try both next year. Likely too late for this year. Good suggestions and something I can work on.
I can never keep basil alive. What is with that? Lots of water, sun, slightly acid soil, nothing  too extreme. Most things like  the  microclimate but I kill every basil I put in. Sigh. I love basil. I am in SE Michigan with a 6a zone.
I lost one hive my first year. They absconded in October and I was devastated...and they left on purpose. Losing 25 hives ...cannot imagine my upset or yours!
I think , Kaye, the first action is to get two things started as PRE-conditioning on the soil. As much mulch as possible (keeps a bit of moisture in the soil and allows that hard soil to soften-slightly). And perhaps throw down a cover crop that will break up the soil and loosen the rocks, such as daikon radish. Not really intended to harvest, but intended to leave in the soil. When you are ready to actually grow other things , you will need to mow or cut the tops off, let the radishes rot in the ground and it will break up that clay and loosen rocks for you. The following year (or if you are really industrious, maybe the same year) plant a few trees that , again will start to break up hard clay with their roots, perhaps nitrogen fixers to add to the soil and begin to provide tiny bits of shade to keep the soil softer.  After a few years of mulching, cover cropping and tree growth, you may be able to describe quite a different soil condition. I would leave most rocks there unless it is just not possible. Then use the rocks you take out to create rock features that allow you to plant plants behind them for wind protection or...add soil over a pile of rocks and plants IN them for  plants that need a drier root area (like Mediterranean type plants-olives or citrus) It is ALWAYS in the preparation. The more thoughtful planning and prep, the easier the task later.
