We camped three days in a town so small that even though they had an Enterprise business, they had no car to rent; they were too small to have bus or taxi service. There are no chain groceries, …

Analogy of Pioneer Settlers (a weary addendum to Chasing Apollo)

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 3:03 p.m.

Jim and I can't figure out why we are so tired. We know it can't be because we are both almost seventy years old, arthritic and out of shape, used to city living in relative luxury, and on an entirely foreign schedule in an entirely foreign land and climate. But after four weeks, we have to admit that we are saddle sore, just like cowboys; still …

Cocktails for better results

Sunday, April 6, 2014 7:00 a.m.

For plants with perennial insect problems a great combination to use this time of year is Neem Oil (Triact for commercial people or large property folks) and Dominion Drench. Horticultural oil is something you could use in place of Neem Oil. I like the Neem Oil because it controls certain fungi as well as killing overwintering insects.
