Beneficial Nematodes are microscopic, non-segmented roundworms that occur naturally in soil throughout the world. These microscopic predators locate flea and tick larvae in the soil and enter the prey infecting them with toxic bacteria killing them in 24 to 48 hours.
These have been a big help here.

So to those interested in the walking onions here is a small patch that has grown out of bounds. I just took photo today 5/7/16. I have plenty to plant and trade

Thank you. I will show to hubby. That last part is super important, don't look and fret over how much to go, look at how far we have come.
Good day
Wrong time of year but that video is gold. I have got to try to remember come May...we get an early start on bug season here.

Also some seeds will be in more than one place and that is good.
As for time start with catalog advise then jot down on folders which time/place did best with each kind of seed. I use sort of a shotgun effect. I throw a lot of seeds out and what grows well where.
I try to keep my seeds dorted by when to plant, peas and others first. My subcategories are zones, by house, in garden,in yard, orchard, mailbox, pastures...like that
4 years ago I put in our first garden here then I had to leave it with hubby. He had major invasion of bugs. He sprayed them but still stripped plants overnight of all foliage. Next year I saw them critters and could literally herd them. They swooped around the yard like birds in the sky all going right and left. Amazing. Was super dry year and could see them and chase herd them. Put out powder barriers and hubby sprayed. I finally too shop vac to them and the new invasive pests coming to visit. I had seen a praying mantis so didn't want to spray. Shop vac worked good. Chased them with it sucking up all I could. So last year all I used was shop vac. Worked a charm. This year so way way less pests!! No I also sprayed out benificial nematodes

Composting is EPA approved way to dispose of animal carcasses. I have never had to compost a full grown goat I have several kids. Last one was a sick kid I took home to try to save. I failed. I put kid where I plan to plant something and I dump cart of compost mix on top and I walk away. Later I till plant a tree or vine. Great.
But on hair...I love barn scrapings during shedding season!

We rent no till drill from NRCS for $10 an acre. Many rental places rent them too.
