I think Simone meant to send this to the entire team. "I just purchased a worm farm ( house) how do I know if I should order 500 or 1000 worms?"

speaking of flowers, do you have any suggestions for Petunias? Mine seem to die by the end of July...

Some cosmos have foliage that is feathery (like dill, say) and other cosmos has foliage that looks for all the world like ragweed. You might have to fend off allergic neighbors!

I shredded beets with carrots and made muffins, kids and adults eat them, no questions asked.
Debby
36:42
after picking kale try massaging it with a little olive oil and this will make it easier to chew.Kids may like this better and especially if you add some sweet dried cranberries.
Elaine

Elaine

Dinelle

It's Dinelle like Dinner bell. haha!When I called Ross township she didn't say you needed to be a resident. She also said to go after 3:30 after the workers go home.

Joanne, I've used the back fabric landscape weedstop. Worked one or two years, but really heated soil in the sun, baked some plants. I might try the straw as mulch this year. Good luck
