I am a humble gardener wanting to make a difference in our community. I am a father of two and a lucky husband to a loving wife. I believe that each individual has the potential to impact our future in sustainability.. being a father i want my children to grow up understanding the natural world and where their food comes from as a more urbanized and industrialized future encroaches on our young ones i feel its my duty to renew and preserve our landscapes and teach our children how to grow food naturally and protect soil and the value it holds to our ecosystems. I always imagined a place where people could enjoy nature for all it has to offer and one day i plan to at least make it a possibility for my family by gardening. Also guerilla gardening wink wink ...

now that i am bound to my indoor prison for winter the boredom has set in and its time for me to grow plants hydroponically indoors. only issue is unless i have a aquaculture set up its not ORGANIC! nutrients arent bioavailable in plain old water and organic fertilizer ...soo i decided to make lacto-bacillus now i need some sort of organic fertilizer to for the lacto bacillus to turn into available nutrients. so my question is can i use spent tea leaves along with lactobacillus to fertilize my hydroponic plants?

has anyone ever gotten any viable seed from  illinois everbearing mullberry...the only reason i ask is because it has virtually seedless fruit and is apparently self fertile but i have heard of female mullberry producing fruit on their own without a male near by but the seed is not viable.

Sorry man there might be some way to source peach scoin in niagra ..u might have to do some calling to the orchards to see if they have any sources...canada doesnt seem to have a huge amount of well known places to get scion wood let alone strange or unique seeds .
