Spiders like to overwinter under comfrey.

My mother's border collie was fine eating bones his entire life until he was 10 and one got lodged in his intestine. Border collies are working dogs, not toy breeds. I would recommend never feeding cooked bones to a dog.

I've never ever heard of a problem with raw bones.

Also, no experience on this one but I've heard that if you feed raw food, you shouldn't mix it with store bought food. Something about the grains slowing down the digestion of the dog, allowing harmful bacteria in the raw food to actually have an impact.

Did you read Paul Wheaton's article on lawn care?

I recommend looking up sheet mulch and doing that. You basically lay a lot of organic matter, maybe a foot deep, on top of the grass. The grass will die and by spring you'll have a lovely area to plant a bunch of non-grass things.

These are very easy to spot from a mile away because of their purple color. The only way I ever heard of eating them is to boil the spring shoots like 3 times with water changes.

Don't eat it! It's medicinal, not edible. If you eat it like it's food you'll damage your liver.

Solomon's seal and ostrich fern are alternative veggies for full shade that you harvest first thing in spring.

Home Depot sells these: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202688657/h_d2/ProductDisplay?selectedCatgry=SEARCH+ALL&jspStoreDir=hdus&catalogId=10053&navFlow=3&keyword=wg781&Ntpc=1&langId=-1&Nu=P_PARENT_ID&storeId=10051&Ntpr=1&ddkey=Search

They just got marked down to $250, and the easy-to-get lowes 10% coupon knocks it down to 225. I haven't found a bad review of it yet online, I think I'm going to get one. I need to replace my reel mower that only goes to about 2.75". This one goes to 3.5". Could be overkill for some of your yards, but right now I have about .3 acres of grass in a residential neighborhood that will take a while to turn into garden. The 14" mowers aren't enough for my yard.
