Re: Hippie or redneck

I'm a little bit of both (don't drink the tea in the BLUE MASON JAR. I'm SERIOUS), as I like all natural remedies (clove oil is good for you) but I'm also redneck enough to really enjoy Nascar (for the crashes).

But mostly, I'm Artistic. Soooooo. Yeah.

There have been several attempts to define the people of Appalachia as a minority group based on cultural, social and economic factors. The Appalachia Regional Commission defined this population as a minority group in 2004...

Do you have one of my blue Mason jars? What are you doing with one of my blue Mason jars? They are all supposed to be in the dry shed!

Why do you & Anna keep getting into my canning jars?

This is the one with the white lid and rubber seal I keep the Oleander in. It's the only one I got since I managed to get it back from whomever took it from Anna's house. Found it at Rocky Horror with my rice in it, recollect? Had this one back in NC.

And double wide? Been there done that! Now we got a "single wide" that still has the wheels on it!

5 rows of Kennebeks 110 feet long, 1/2 a row of red tators....
We did our Kennebecs in 55 gallon food grade plastic drums for several years. No digging in the hard clay. Yield was 50 lbs. per barrel.


Planted my taters in two orange 5 gallon buckets (impressed with Recycle code #2 means they are High density polyethylene (HDPE) - used for milk, water, and juice bottles, yogurt and margarine tubs, cereal box liners, and grocery, trash, and retail bags.
Food safe and not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones) this year.... Yukon Gold and Russet... growing like weeds, need to add a layer of dirt to them already. I got a few more Yukon Gold seed taters in the refrigerator. I'm hoping I can hold them until I harvest the first bucket. This is a test. Both the buckets and the refrigerated seed taters. Alternative is to hold out one tater from the buckets to start another bucket. I used an "ebucket" this time. Mostly because I've never tried this in a 5 gallon bucket and I don't have a way to keep the buckets up off the ground. Apparently lots of folks have done taters in buckets. I took picks of making the ebucket and planting the taters. This weekend I need to take pics of the current growth & adding a layer of soil to the buckets. I'm wondering if the orange buckets will attract more masons bees/butterflies to the plants. I know the bees (mason & honey) were very attracted to the yellow and red of the food cart. I'm working on setting up a portable garden. The wind has taken a heavy toll on my strawberry plants. The cooler nights haven't helped either. I need to build 4 more ebuckets for the Brussels Sprouts. I would like to add a couple table grapes (1 red, 1 green). The food cart is now my green house and will also hold the "garden" when we leave here.
