Great idea McBarb! i would assume it works much like trail cams hunters use without warning the subject theyre being recorded or lit up like a xmas tree to scare them off. The recorded tape can be viewed once removed from camera, onto your computer for close up viewing and proof of the intruders identity for LE to locate. Kurt has installed trail cams in trees located near points of entry to our home garden area to catch potential sneaky neighbors who may be tempted to help themselves to strawberries and blueberries on their late night walks, and possibly a few deer who may decide to jump the fence. Hope you have good luck with whatever you choose.

Garden at the farm is almost completely planted. All thats left is to put in cucumbers, squash, melons and string beans. Our garlic and onions are already 8"tall. All these contraptions Kurt has purchased to make gardening easier has paid off. Here at the house we just have tomatoes, jalapenos and green peppers to put in. These particular plants look better than any weve planted! Each plant is very full with big leaves, and nice stalks. Kurt thinks its because he mists each plant during the day, and then waters at night. No idea, but they really look great. Quite a difference after the big disappointment we had. Were waiting to receive the extra 100 strawberry plants to arrive. Boy! I HOPE Im able to can, and freeze goods this year!

That is great news, Judy!! I am going to do a test this summer. I am going to take 2 identical plants and water one in the morning and one at night. I have always watered in the morning.

McBarb, remember those tomato, jalapeno, and green pepper plants we "thought" wed lost? Since planting new seed from Burpee, and changing up the soil to half Burpee and half Miracle Grow soil, even those lost seeds came up, were transplanted into larger pots, and are now as tall and bushy as the other plants. Kurt said he researched misting the plants once daily, and watering at night and was surprised to find it really works. The stems on all the plants are about the diameter of a pencil,loaded with bushy leaves.Now, were back to having a large number of plants to grow, with more canning involved. It should be a bit interesting to see which of your two plants does better. Since its a well known fact, all plants grow at night, time of watering might be valuable to notice a difference in growth. WHERE is Jnanne? Shes the one that grew up on the farm and has the most experience in gardening. I, for one miss her!

I miss her too!!

I've been sewing like crazy and making oodles of key chains for various shows. So far I am about breaking even on the cost of the work-vs-the sales. Where are all the people who appreciate unique quilts?

As for gardening, no vegetable gardening for me this year. Those plants I most enjoy growing are high on the list of those foods I can no longer eat. I am concentrating my efforts on prettifying the property. Unfortunately, the crew that came in to clean the leaves out of all the beds, trim the shrubs, and tidy up went above and beyond. I came home today to discover that all my violets and shamrocks are gone from all but the one bed they had not yet gotten to. All but two hosta are gone. HOW CAN YOU WORK FOR A LANDSCAPING COMPANY AND NOT RECOGNIZE HOSTA? I can understand that they think the others are weeds, as they are native plants that most folk around here consider weeds and I am the anomaly in actually wanting them in my beds. However, these guys left all the pin oak seedlings under the bushes (which they whacked back way too far--but eventually they will be pretty again--and hey, we won't have to pay to have them trimmed again for a very long time--may not for a couple of years or so). And they are grinning from ear to ear, so proud that they have the beds down to bare dirt!

I spoke with my mother-in-law and the instructions she gave them were to only blow out and remove the leaves. They were not instructed to weed or pull out anything except one dead shrub.

I think I may go cry. I keep telling myself everything they took out is a native perennial, so the roots are probably still intact enough that they will come back. Probably not until next spring, but they will return. That's why the neighbors call them weeds. People try to eradicate them and it doesn't work.

As for the pin oaks, maybe I should transfer them to pots and sell them at the farmers' market for a buck each. I have enough that they would cover the cost of replacing the couple dozen spots of gorgeous hostas I used to have--plus the cost of the pots and the soil.

Judy--the best-producing garden we ever had at the detention center was the year Ed worked the night shift and watered after the kids were all asleep. He was probably out there sometime between midnight and 4am. My dad always watered in the evenings as the sun was setting, so the water had a chance to soak into the ground and feed the roots before the ground would bake.

The only absolute is NEVER water during the heat of the day. It is a waste of water. What doesn't evaporate quickly causes the top layer of soil to harden so later waterings don't soak in easily, making it even more difficult for the plants to thrive.

When you are a 24-hour facility--as jails tend to be--you have to have officers on duty 24-hours per day. The ones working the night shift tend to have long stretches of down-time--at least on a good shift.

It is soooooooo nice to hear from you again! I also very sorry to hear about your plants being destroyed. I know IF it were me, Id be complaining to the landscape company about that, and want them to replace all the plants they removed. True landscapers know the difference between a plant from weeds! They owe you.
I can sympathize with you about gardening, and not being able to eat those vegetables or foods you once enjoyed due to health reasons. It seems EVERYTHING I used to eat, Im no longer able to either. Its frustrating.
Just as you mentioned, the time of watering the garden, and lawn is very important, and is mentioned on tv quite a lot by our weatherman when the heat turns up reminding us to wait until dusk, or before dawn to prevent evaporation.Growing plants inside is a bit different as we know.
Now youre making quilts? Wow! Such a talented woman. Up here, they sell for hundreds of dollars, and more that makes them unaffordable to many. In my younger days, I worked at a big name department store that made custom bedspreads and draperies. When the fabric swatches were switched out to make room for new designs, Id purchase the whole sample books for little of nothing (25 cents to $1), and make quilts with the materials, and use store returned sheets( 25 cents each) for the backing. There were quilted, and non quilted samples so they were easy to throw together with some requiring batting, while the quilted fabric didnt. Im not sure if any department stores still provide the same customized service, but it might be an idea where to get cheap fabric that requires less work cutting and piecing together. Then again with so many people making quilts, they may not be as affordable now. Each book contained several hundred good sized swatches. Some were 12"-18" w x 18-24"square, while others came in 6"x 6" squares. Im sure the prices have gone up a lot since my time, but it may be something to look into. Are you making the quilts for your own use,to sell, or donate? Its quite a talent, and something to be very proud of when completed, and last forever.

Today, is my last day of chemo. They call it a booster. This means the full body scan is coming up soon. My cancer cannot be brought into remission, but only slowed down, so I know Ill be looking at possibly having to have a different chemo somewhere down the road soon when it starts to grow again. Not sure what my decisions will be regarding that. This so-called quality of life hasnt been all that great as I havent been able to do much of anything. Im lucky if I get a good day here, or there where I can get my housework, or laundry done. Guaranteed, Ill pay for any activity the next day by spending it in bed for a week. Its not been any fun playing around with dehydration and low blood counts, plus, the weakness and instabilty each causes the body.My best friends brother has this same cancer, and same chemo treatment. He had his last chemo less than 6 weeks ago, and is already having to start a new stronger chemo because his cancer began growing again. The outlook isnt good for longevity at this point. We shall see where I am in a few short weeks. He has a single tumor in his lung, whereas, I have hundreds besides the pancreas. And who knows where else it may have metastasized by now. Oncologist "thinks" Ive now got a liver problem. The body scan will show more if there is something going on. I get kind of a kick when I think back on the decision to use this particular chemo Everything was so positive, where now, Im not hearing the same promising statements. Not looking for any pity, just providing an update.

Glad to hear an update--just wish it were more upbeat. However, it also sounds like you are making the most of the things you can do, which is fabulous.

As for the quilting, I've been doing it for about 40 or so years. I couldn't begin to count the number of quilts I have made. I've been selling them since the mid-80's. I use mostly recycled materials, remnants, pieces begun by somone that have found their way into garages sales or antique stores, tee shirts, curtains, upholstery, jeans, linens, doilies, etc. I am absolutely certain when I finish what someone else started it never looks like they envisioned. I teach a "Break the Rules" quilting class, where the seams are 1/2" (hold up longer to modern cleaning methods), the fabrics are anything goes (makes for more eclectic, artistic, and textured pieces--and teaches kids who don't have much money that they don't have to spend much to make a great quilt), and backing is polar fleece or flannel so we don't have to use batting (this makes the project faster to complete, easier with only two layers, and when you wash it several times you don't have the batting turn into hard balls of yuck surrounded by blank spaces--and you don't have to stipple if you don't want to). Besides, fleece and flannel both cause more friction and don't slide off the bed as easily as quilting cotton. And they are snuggly, especially for a baby quilt.

My mother-in-law is talking to the owner of the lawn care company today. I hope she keeps her cool and is polite and firm. You don't have to be rude or nasty just because you were wronged, and you are more likely to be treated well if you are nice about it. We shall see...

Judy, I am glad you posted about your health. I have been wondering.

I put a pot of yellow pear seedlings in the sunny window and they really looked great. I put them under the gro lite bulb and it fried them.

The tomato plants are REALLY taking off! the stems are the diameter of a pencil eraser and larger. The bushes are short, and stocky with huge rich, fuzzy looking leaves, and dont show any signs of overwatering.
Yesterday was a particularly lousy day, and thats before chemo. Its become common to have crashes where I feel extreme weakness, instability, shaking episodes. Generally, I drive myself in for treatment, but I had to call Kurt to take me in since I was too weak. Of course it was caused by being dehydrated-AGAIN, but worse this time than others. Next week just the two shots for blood platelet replacement, and then the next theyll do a CT scan to see how things are going. Keep our fingers crossed! Im not as hopeful as before as there are many changes going on that to me are negatives, but it may just be my body ridding itself of the dead cancer cells. More pain included.

Judy K--do you like asparagus? Do you already have a bed planted? Maybe consider one?

I have no clue as to the truth of the article below, but it is an interesting read. However, whether true or not, unless your doctor has ruled out the food, this would be a more enjoyable "treatment" than many others--at least if you like the veggie! Of course, I would want to just eat it, not drink it, though.

Attributed to David Wright on Feb 9, 2016, in St. Cloud, MN (from Facebook).

Subject: Asparagus DO NOT FAIL TO READ THIS AND SEND TO YOUR FAMILY &FRIENDS When I was in the USN, I was stationed in Key West, FL. I worked at the clinic at Naval Air Station on Big Coppitt Key just a few miles north of Key West. The hospital at Key West was for out- patients only, for retired armed forces personnel that lived in the area. If you needed to be hospitalized you were sent to Homestead AFB Florida. I had the day off and just went inside the hospital (Corpman barracks were next to hospital). There was a retired Navy man that worked in the lab and he was very interesting gentleman to talk with. He was a retired biochemist from the USN. He asked me what was going on that day, and I said I had the day off. I wish I was working, as the crew on, today was taking a sailor to Homestead as he had a very bad kidney infection. Now this elderly gent told me the man should have eaten more asparagus, and he wouldn't have that problem. I asked why? I'll never forget him saying, do you eat asparagus? and I said yes, I love them. He replied you notice how your urine stinks after eating asparagus? I said well I never thought it was what I ate but yes it does have a pungent odor. He said, It is because it is detoxifying your body of harmful chemicals!!! This was back in 1986 when I was stationed there and to read this email again I had to share this story...Eat more asparagus, my friends.
Asparagus -- Who knew?
My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus, pureed it and took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she will not need to see him for 3 months.
THE ARTICLE:
Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a copy of an article, entitled "Asparagus For Cancer" printed in the Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples:
Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise
Case No. 2, A successful businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he began taking asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.
Case No. 3, On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is now back at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy, the skin specialist said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which had started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.
I was not surprised at this result as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates! ---We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.
For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using. Fresh or canned asparagus can be used. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives. Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree. Store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening. Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.
As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink. As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. I was given these facts by a good friend but as with anything do your own research and make your own judgements thank you Dave Wright. Here are my thoughts on the material. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
Just a side note... In case you are wondering why this has not been made public, there is no profit in curing cancer.
Please send this article to everyone in your Address Book. The most unselfish act one can ever do is paying forward all the kindness one has received.

Yes Jnanne, we do have a small garden set aide just for the asparagus that was planted two years ago. didnt get much from it last year. I think Kurt believes weeds dont have to be pulled, because its turned into a weed patch. Im better off to buy it at the grocery store when they have a sale on it and then freeze it up for future use.
We know that finding a cure for cancer isnt profitable.Every week when I go into the clinic, and see the high number of patients with this horrible disease dollar signs register.Im figuring at least $40-50 thousand a month per each patient for chemo. And this is just ONE clinic! HUGE waiting room full of patients in various stages of it. Young, middle aged and the elderly. Youd think with all the many millions/billions of dollars donated to the cause theyd surely have been able to find a cure by now. To me being in remission doesnt count,because it will come back one day to bite you in the butt, Im talking a cure. Its not the research thats costing the money, its the administrative end that eats it up. All one has to do is look at the way our donated money is spent at the American Cancer society site to see where it goes. There was a big hullabaloo about it written in our local paper a year back about a good many of these foundations that raise money for various cures. Paraplegia is another one that will not see a cure due also to profitability.Just think how many people would be put out of work, and business if these two were curable.
On another note: My son takes a lot of natural vitamins, and he recommended I take Tumeric to kill this cancer. The size of those capsules were worse than horse pills, and I was unable to swallow them, so I had him make me up smaller capsules where Id take more but get the same amount needed. The next time I saw my oncologist, I asked him about the effects of using Tumeric in relation to cancer, and he told me that by starting to take them now wouldnt do me any good, but had I been taking it for months or years prior, it would have helped.Id also been having symptoms of nausea, and decided to try Dramamine as Id used it when I was pregnant for morning sickness years ago. I went to Walgreens Drug and found its still sold and bought some. Took one and it worked. Then I read the contents, and i was surprised to read the capsules had Ginger root as the only ingredient! Here is another spice that can be purchased in larger quantity, and then poured into gel capsules(can be purchased off eBay) for a fraction of the price and is totally safe to use and without any after effects. There are so many things we can take naturally that do us more good than all the medications on the market, all it take is a bit of research.

I'm just thinking, enjoy some asparagus daily for a while because it is tasty (steamed with butter as opposed to pureed and mixed with water). It can't hurt, will be tasty, and just might help boost the immune system.

According to the oncologist nothing is going to boost my immune system until this chemo is out of my system. I had been taking vitamins regularly up until I was diagnosed, and thought about increasing the dose on a few to keep my blood counts up.I was told to not bother, Id get blood platelet replacement injections. Since this voyage, I have found there are many things I used to love to eat, I no longer can tolerate, the taste changes from desirable to tasting like poison, even water, almost daily.All caused from the chemo, or the cancer Im told. What I do find is that eating fast food is tolerated the best, and expressed that, and was told a lot of cancer patients report the same. Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) really settles good, besides a burger, fries and a coke. But, let me eat those things at home, and I get sick almost immediately. Also, my appetite is so small Im only able to eat about one half to one cup of food at a time, so Im advised to eat several meals throughout the day. Veggies are not on my list of good tasting right now, even though I hunger for some.
Kurt planted the rest of the garden at the farm this weekend. Everything planted prior is coming up like crazy he says. Potatoes, garlic, dill, some varieties of squash, and melons are already coming up, with some as high as a foot already. Evidently, many plants like our cool weather.

I think this will be a good year weatherwise for gardening. My tomato plants have 3 and 4 sets of leaves and are about a foot tall. I am potting the Burpee cherry tomato into a large pot. I am taking 3 cherry tomatoes to my cousin and his wife along with my mother. They are also getting a Cubanelle pepper and a sweet pepper. I grew geraniums so my mother and cousin/wife want a geranium too. My friend Diana wants a yellow pear and a "Yellow Jubilee" (large yellow tomato) plants. Sherri is getting a sweet pepper, salsa tomato, jalapeno pepper, cherry tomato and beefsteak. sweet!!~

I was always told that the asparagus pee smell was due to an enzyme that your body could not process. My favorite asparagus is grilled or broiled with a little olive oil, salt and lemon juice.

As for gardening, I got tomato plants and basil in the ground last saturday. The beginnings of caprese salad. :) I weeded the herb garden. Sage, oregano some scraggly mint and chives survived the winter. All except the chives have a ugly fungus on them due to all our rain. I'm treating it with neem oil spray. The rosemary got trimmed back to a twig by the yard dudes. What is it with yard dudes taking away all the good plants?

I also wanted to put in catnip, cilantro and dill this year but two different Home Depot stores had no catnip plants and their cilantro and dill always look pitiful. So I have seeds started for those.

Next is to tackle the large flower bed around the pool. Weeding (stupid nut grass), more mulch, pull the rogue morning glory off what's left of the rosemary, gardenia and canna lilies and put in citronella plants.

I hope you are on the road to recovery Judy.
