    I got myself some organic seeds and have begun my indoor plantations : courgettes , carrots , salad , leeks, cherry tomatoes , basil , coriander, parsnip, chive, nasturtium , small onions, radishes ... Will add potatoes as well , horseradish and squash.
    I have the grocery bags too and can't wait for the day I'll be able to use them to transplant .
    I think I am a bit late for the season but I really hope it all turns allright.
    It's been a lovely experience so far .
    Thanks to this thread and the people that contributed to it as I must say this is what really got me going.

    Love to you all

    Sounds great Mudra...good luck with everything. We are having good old ding dong over at the
    garden forum. If you dont want to join take a read over there as its extremely useful with lots of good advice and tips. There are some familiar faces there too.
    Do let us know how you get on and dont forget to sing to the veggies..they love it

    I think its not too late in the season. I only decided to plant carrots last sunday aswell as some clementine. I think you have a while yet. I just make it up as I go along and everything seems fine!

    Would anyone like to please give me some input regarding planning a community garden? I'll bet there are links here somewhere in the Mists, that were brought over to the Mists from PA. What I'd like to do is create a plan for a community garden which will probably have to be terraced. It would serve 20 to 25 members at the beginning.This will be exciting, as the forest has not been farmed before, ever. Anyway, I'd like to have a layout plan that is circular with a grid interior. Any ideas? Thanks, Linda

    This was just in my email and reads like something out of a Stephen King horror novel--elitists, corporate agents, and government operatives secretly implementing fertility-control methods, decimating populations of people in a nefarious program that would make Margaret Sanger, a leader of the eugenics movement and founder of Planned Parenthood, proud.

    Forget environmental concerns and glow-in-the-dark babies. In fact, forget babies altogether. You don't have to worry about passing along any mutations to your kids because your chances of having them have been compromised. In fact, that's the goal--to reduce your numbers.

    How, you ask?

    Would you believe me if I said ... corn?

    And not just any corn.

    GMO corn.


    According to F.W. Engdahl, an American-German freelance journalist, historian, and economic researcher, one long-standing project of the U.S. government has been to perfect a genetically-modified strand of corn. This variety of corn was field-tested over ten years ago, and according to the president of the small bio-tech firm in charge of that project...

    "We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies."

    Taking antibodies from women with a rare condition known as "immune infertility" and isolating the genes that regulated the manufacture of those antibodies, they inserted them into the corn plants, creating, in essence, a biological weapon for population control.

    And who was helping to finance this endeavor? The Gates' Foundation (which includes the Buffet Foundation) and the Rockefeller Foundation, through a project called The Alliance for a Green Revolution, headed by none other than former U.N. Chief, Kofi Annan. Major GMO agri-businesses are reported to be at the heart of AGRA, using it to spread their GMO technology throughout the Third World. According to Engdahl, "Gates and Buffet are major funders of global population reduction programs." Included in this unholy alliance is Ted Turner, who thinks that a 95% reduction in global population to around 300 million would be "ideal."

    And remember, the Rockefeller Foundation has been involved in eugenics and genocide since it began funding the eugenics research in Germany in the 1920s and well into the Third Reich. (Seeds of Destruction, F.W. Engdahl.) The Rockefellers backed the forced sterilizations and racial purity ideology of Hitler's Germany.

    But how does a Third World program affect us in western civilization? More specifically, how does it affect us here, in the United States?

    Shortly after the introduction of GMO corn into the U.S. in 1996, birth rates began falling. Since 1999, birth rates have plummeted even faster - just three years after GMO corn was introduced into the food supply.

    GMOS, according to scientists interviewed for the film Science Under Attack, have been known to cause smaller brain size, lowered immunity, organ damage, and infertility in animals fed biotech food. Does this correspond to the 20% rate of infertility occurring in our population today? That's a good question. Unfortunately, agri-giants and our government are suppressing the answers.

    Since 2008, the U.S. government has opposed a national effort to label GMO foods. They upped the ante by trying to suppress GMO labeling anywhere in the world, by using Codex, the U.N. arm that seeks to regulate every food, mineral, and herb in the world used for consumption. However, this effort has stalled because Codex doesn't look at GMO created products as "food."

    However, Codex does place these products into a special category that can be utilized in alternative applications. (Like birth control, maybe?)

    Genetically engineered corn, soy, cottonseed oil, and canola oil are the most processed foods in the United States. These foods have NEVER been tested for safety in human consumption ... even though animal studies show severe organ damage, spontaneous abortions, and sterility when consumed.

    Take control of your fertility ... your health ... your life ... by taking control of your own food supply. And that's where heirloom seeds come into play.

    Why heirloom seeds? Heirloom seeds are the way that God made them, naturally occurring, with no tampering or tinkering by human hands. (Choosing seed stock for vigor and growth is NOT the same as introducing foreign genetic material into the DNA of the plant.)

    Heirloom Solutions supplies heirloom seeds cultivated through the careful stewardship of small, independent farmers who are holding the line against the inhumane and abusive practices of the agri-giants. These are the farmers that stand in the gap for those of us who realize that our survival depends on us, not the government.

    Grow your own vegetables - nutrient dense, bursting with flavor, and naturally resistant to many of the diseases and parasites that plague genetically-modified crops today. But the benefits of gardening and growing your own food go far beyond the physical advantages of health and nutrition. Growing your own food and providing for your family's needs reconnects you to life's natural ebb and flow, the way that God intended.

    On a more useful note found this lovely use for an old builders pallet
    ideal for a wee space looking to be busy and green am sure it would work well for salad greens and herbs
    I am now on the lookout for a pallet !!

    Okay...Mudra led me here...so I'm going to transfer photos and list our garden that Lionhawk and I have going. Now also keep in mind we grew these from seeds and talked to them regularly. I kid you not! scratch (Lionhawk did most of the talking...it's that Mother Earth connection he's here for) Anyway on this pic...to the left that you cannot see is four rows of cucumbers, and two rows of Watermelon. To the right of the squash is four rows of tomatoes, and two rows of banana peppers. We erected a fence in the back for pole peas and pole beans..but The pole beans must have been a bad batch of seeds as only about four plants came up. Plenty of pole peas however

    On the squash showing there is a variety of squash, Zucchini, crook neck yellow, regular yellow squash, and butternut squash...we are going to be eating PLENTY of squash...




    And this would be the beginning of our flowering on the zucchini....



    This is technically my first garden...the last one I started the broccoli looked like it was from another planet...weird..nothing came up.

    Now on the porch we have Basel, oregano, cilantro, thyme growing in two planters we made from wood.



    It was a real project! We had to till up half the yard to get it started, and that was a real job for Lionhawk..but I'm so proud of what we have accomplished so far. Lionhawk grew up on a farm..so he has some background...me....

    I grew up in the city..this is ALL new to me...but I'm lovin it!

    Garden under threat. Global warming? A mini ice age? Whatever it is, I am not amused.
