No, not really. We used to order an order of chicks every so many years, but I had to get 25, which we're not ready for this year, and then one year...many years ago, I got the Ameracauna's from this place.
They get them from another company altogether, and we loved them, vowing to have them, from then on, as at least 1/2 of our flock. They get along well, have very large eggs...pretty, too!...and are smart...which is good when there are wild animals about sometimes.
They don't have them every year.
Anyway, I am hoping that things work out despite those people.
It's been a few years for cukes for me, but I remember them doing well in full sun, but they needed water, sometimes almost daily if it's really hot, or if the soil's not great. Just test with a finger in the soil. They especially want water when flowering and setting fruit.
The thing is, it is best to avoid wetting the leaves, to avoid mold.
The great thing about pots, is that you can move them if the tomatoes don't do well where they are.
Kombu...it's a type of seaweed that makes good snacking when dry. Well, sometimes they are too thick, then better for cooking with, sometimes a bit thin. But, I like them juuust right, sayeth Goldilock's! ;-)
The ones that I found are from the Atlantic, vs. the Pacific, since the meltdown in Japan a few years ago.
Yes, the paper goods are good to have.
That sounds right for the well water.
How do you keep your 5 gal. etc. bottles clean, or have you had to yet? Bleach water?
Thanks! Have a great day!
