Open Threat

Tea Party Convention Organizer Goes 'On the Record' With Greta

I want all the personal attacks to stop. We need to debate issues in a civil maner. I want people to feel welcome to post here. I want to hear what people are thinking. Have fun and play nice. Thanks


  1. Open thread right????

    okay here goes..this summer in my containers I'm growing...

    Early Girl
    Better Boy Toms
    Biker Billy hot peppers
    Purple Beuaty Bells

    The pots have typically been 80 percent potting soil and 20 peat moss. I'd like to stay away from MG this season and wonder what you think might be a way to go more organic.

    I know i'm using hybrid seeds which aren't truly organic but what would you recommend for soil; enrichment and then for fertilizer. I haven't used any pesticide in the past, preferring to use a mild soapwater spray on occasion. Had pretty good luck, but thought you might have some new ideas.

    Open thread???

  2. Joe now you are talking my language. I like the purple tomatoes for flavor. I make my own potting soil by using canadian peat 4 parts,1 part vermiculite and 1 part compost. Or you can buy Fox Farms soil and it is the best soil. Do not get the soil that hold moisture. It is a patrolium based product that will make your food taste bad. I fertilize with a liquid fertalizer that is high in minerals. Those are fish emulsion,liquid kelp and ironite for minerals. I do a folier feeding every couple of weeks. Remember that the minerals in the soil are what you end up eating and they give your plants the great flavor. I also make a compost manuer tea to water my plants with. I also use a product5 called sonic bloom at . You will have the best garden ever. And a little MG for nitrogin,patasium and phosforus wont hurt just don't use it all the time. If you want some of the best heirloom plants for your garden go to the Mount Clemens Farmers Market next to Gibralter Trade Center in spring. If you need more guidance on that just let me know. I will be more then happy to meet you up there and show you what makes the best variaties. My family and I eat very well all year long because of our fruit trees and garden.

  3. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of legendary human rights campaigner, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., told a meeting of Priests for Life, that the killing of a quarter of the black population of the US has not been from the lynch mobs of her childhood days, but from abortionists, “who plant their killing centres in minority neighbourhoods and prey upon women who think they have no hope."

    “The great irony,” she said, “is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” King was speaking Sunday at the unveiling of memorials at the Birmingham, Alabama church served by her late father, the Rev. A. D. Williams King.


    Dr. King pointed out that the killing of the unborn in the US, which has taken the lives of well over 42 million American children, is overwhelmingly concentrated in the African-American community. “In the last forty-plus years,” Dr. King said, “15 million black people have been denied their most basic civil right, the right to life. Roughly one quarter of the black population is now missing.”

    The abortion movement’s history is inseparable from that of the eugenics movement that held the genocide of the “dysgenic races” races as a central goal and for which the poor were the “enemies of the people.” In the US, the abortion facilities and offices of Planned Parenthood are concentrated in poor areas where the black population is especially targeted.Margaret Sanger, the foundress of the organisation that eventually became Planned Parenthood, had as her goal the control and subjugation of the poor ethnic peoples including blacks.

    Dr. King said, “It's time that we remember the sacrifices of men like my father and my uncle who worked and died so that our children could live.”“It's time to stop killing the future and keep their dream alive.” Thank you so much for letting the voices of all to speak on your blog. You are a good Christian man and a friend to the African-American community.

  4. Bruce,I have a question for you. I've noticed you write a lot teabagging and now you want Obama to grow some. Is this a new patern?

  5. Every day, gardeners across the world flush away a valuable and sustainable source of fertilizer for their plants -- urine. Urine is a good source of nitrogen and other minerals and, providing it is used correctly, is completely safe. Using urine as a fertilizer saves money, fossil fuels (used extensively in the production of chemical fertilizers) and water (no need to flush!). It's a standard of some organic gardens - for more cool organic gardening tips, I suggest you check out a copy of Organic Gardening Magic.

    Using urine also cuts down on river pollution -- urine is a major source of nitrogen that contributes to river eutrophication if expensive denitrification is not used at the water treatment plant. And it's not a backwards step, it's space age technology -- NASA has used urine in hydroponics systems!

    Keep it separate. The golden rule with urine use is to keep it separate from other bodily wastes. Urine is clean and needs to be kept that way. Pee in a bottle, or invest in a urine-separating toilet.
    Use it fresh. We all know that stale urine smells. That's ammonia, and it's made from nitrogen. The smellier your collected urine, the less nutritious it will be for your plants, as well as being unpleasant to apply.
    Always dilute. Urine is too strong to be used neat on plants. Dilute at least 5:1, and it can be diluted up to 10:1 for use on tender plants and seedlings.Water at the roots. It's good practice when watering not too splash the leaves, but to water at the roots. This saves on evaporation, and dry leaves are much more resistant to disease.
    Spread it around. Urine can be salty, and using too much of it in one place can harm plants. Use it throughout your garden so no one area suffers from an overdose, and don't use it every time you water a plant.
    Feed hungry plants. The plants that will benefit most from urine fertilizer are the ones with the highest nitrogen requirements. Try it on leafy vegetables like cabbages and cauliflowers, corn, or anything that needs a quick pick-me-up.
    Other uses. Neat urine is too strong to be used directly on plants, but it can be used as a weedkiller; a few applications, especially if used on hot days, should finish off your weeds. It can also be used neat as a winter spray for fruit trees, to discourage fungal diseases.
    Activate! A final use for urine in the garden is as a compost activator. The nitrogen in urine will speed up the composting process and kick start a slumbering heap.

Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
