jessica-

I'd check with Garden City Garden Supply at 525 E Spruce. Last I knew, they had some.

I'd be interested. This was my first year saving seeds. I didn't get the technique down for some of the plants, but still managed to save pure seeds from quite a few.

Yes, the horse shoe shape will be facing south. I thik the bed will be rougly 3.5-4 feet high filled with really warm decomposing wood mulch. I guess I was just wondering if the combination of hugel+rowcover+greenhouse plastic would allow me to start peppers and tomatoes in April? They should move the bed a couple of zones south, right? I know tomatoes need roughly 70-80 for germination and six hours for sunlight.

In other words.... stupid idea that won't work....or go for it?

I've been browsing through both Gaia's Garden and Eliot Coleman's The Winter Harvest Handbook.

This fall I want to set up a horse shoe shape garden in our bed using hay as the structure and filling it with hugelkultur material.

My thoughts are, would be it be possible to start planting everything in, say, mid-March or April in this bed, cover it with row cover and greenhouse plastic and get stuff to grow? (Thus keeping stuff that doesn't like uber wetness dry, and hand watering if need be).

Just trying to figure out if that would be hot enough to allow me to start melons, tomatoes, peppers, etc earlier.


Thoughts?

We're gonna need newspaper!  Who has lots of newspaper?



The recycling bins in the Walmart parking lots and any other big blue recycling bins (Rosauer's used to have one...not sure if they still do). That's where we scored ours last year. Kind of awkward grabbing stuff out of them, but you can get a butt ton in one shot. 

Do you need poles for either of these two?

So, I know there was discussion during the last (?) permaculture presentation at the library of building a wofati this fall. Could we get a list going of stuff needed? I'd like to get start collecting material to bring earlier rather than later.

My former land lords planted Thyme as ground cover & lawn edging, is it native??



It's not native, it hails from the Mediterranean. I think yarrow would be a fabulous yard. It's easy to grow, beautiful and will spread over the years. Plus, the bees really enjoy it!

Myself and two friends went to it. It really is a great deal at 7 dollars for a gallon of herbs. Lots and lots of herbs, nicely arranged and labeled on the sheet so you know what you are looking at. We had a great time!

So according to google common names for Suillus Cavipes are: Douglas Fir Suillus, Hollow foot, hollow-stalked larch suillus, hollow stem Tamarack Jack.

Yeah, I only know the Latin name and my friend only knows the Czech name...not much help there.


Does anyone know where to find other mushrooms?

A friend and I went hiking up the Rattlesnake this past weekend. We found loads of Suillus Cavipes mushrooms up there (edible mushrooms), some past there prime, but a lot of them just coming up and really great looking. Just thought I'd share.
