Occupy A Garden-Occupy Our Food Supply #F27 Blogger Day of Action~~~ Rainforest Action Network Blog


From December to July a lot change in the Garden Here's how MY Garden looks right now in July, 2012
The barren-ness is gone.  The rocks are covered in green.  Things do change.

My contribution to OCCUPY OUR FOOD day

Well I'm kinda late to this Blogger Day of ACTion of Occupy Our Food Supply, But I'm Here.

There's an Hour and a half left of the day of February 27th and I'm taking part of this Global Blog, Right Here Right Now.

I think my Garden Blog Itself is enough to be a testimonial about what I think about OCCUPY OUR FOOD day. I Think putting up a sign on my front yard with OCCUPY A GARDEN is enough.

That's what I did.

Willie Nelson and Anna Lappe weigh in with their own thoughts about OCCUPY OUR FOOD day at this link. about farms and farmers and fresh vegetables.

I may not be a farmer, but I'm a small farmer, It's called a gardener.

And I love and adore my garden.

So there.

It's Gettting To Be That Time Again....Woo Hoo....‘Why Do You Garden?’ 100 Comments — A Way to Garden

‘Why Do You Garden?’ Nears 100 comments — A Way to Garden

Over 100 Comments on why People Garden.

Reading each one individually is very enlightening. The comments that I do Not like are the "I'm the A Number Garderner of All Time" Comments.

All garderners are different, all have their own gardening style. All do it for their different reasons. There is no one right way to garden, nor why.

You just Do IT.

Can't wait to just DO IT again.

Here's a Great Read to get you started by Ruth Stout.... The lady who accidentally got it right and cried, "Eureka" louder than anyone else since Archimedes (and liked to garden in the buff).

Here's Her Book

Talking about her composting method Ruth says the “aha” came one spring when the plow man hadn’t come yet to till, and she was eager to get planting. She saw that the asparagus (a long-lived perennial vegetable crop) was already up and growing, right through the layers of fallen leaves and such. “I walked over and said to the asparagus, ‘We don’t have to plow for you; why do we have to plow for the other vegetables?’” Stout recalls. “And the asparagus said, “You don’t.’”
