Wyoming & Colo: Zones 2 to 5,
Urban and Forest gardening !
Miles was born into a ranching family. His Mom and Dad moved to the big city so he has lived in both worlds. Miles is married with two college aged children. He has been gardening all of his life , in Colorado and Wyoming. A Wyoming Master Gardener and Permaculture newbie. Miles loves hiking, camping and fishing in the Rockies. He and his family live on a small suburban lot outside of Denver and own a ten acre forested lot in Wyoming that is slowly being planted with food crops.

So combine bricks with the Wheaton eco scale. The lower folks on the scale need easier bricks ?

Travis, spend every minute you have left giving your family great memories of you ! Spend some time writing down some thoughts to your children's future selves. Advise that they might need as they go through life. Show them strength and compassion. My prayers are for you and them tonight.

Lenn, I work in coal and gas fired power plants that produce steam to power turbines. and I think it is very doable. But heating water to steam is very dangerous business and would need to have a lot of safety equipment built into the system. Water quality is key, relief valves are essential. Lots of variables to control. So yes it can be done but who ever does it had better know what they are doing!

WOW Tatyana that is awesome!

So explain a little more about the pumpkins. Do you put them in a separate compost pile and then move the compost to the beds or do you just lay the pumpkins down in the bed and plant in them?

Is it all pumpkin compost or other ingredients?
Pickled beets !

Hi denise, good question !  Usually it is a sacrificial plant that bugs really like, that we can plant amongst our good stuff . The bugs will go to their favorite plant first and we can "trap" them.
