Lots of good info....thanks!

I did a two year cover...carpet plus mulch...on bindweed and knocked it down pretty good. But it does come back...as you say. Cleaned up the new sprouting weed with vinegar and steady digging out with a shovel. Still have the final third of the garden area to purge of bindweed. Tackle a segment of ground at a time.

Didn't do a lot in the garden this summer but I did get two chokeberry bushes going. They seem to be tolerating our dry climate. I mulch them and water regularly.

Planting garlic this weekend!

Hi longhorn, Got our first light frost last night. Picked everything I could pick last night. Garlic came in this week and got garden tilled before my old Troy Horse blew the crank out. Time to repower that beast. Old Tecumseh blew up just as I pulled out onto grass. LOL

Deer hunting time again -LOVE IT!

Hi,

Good to hear from you! Harvesting garden and deer hunting...you are livin the dream there, son! Other than flying cranks but that's kind of exciting too. Wonder if they still make the Tecumseh engine. I remember those from long ago days growing up on the farm.

We are planting garlic today and putting ear tags on new calves later.

You banned me from your joke thread for trying to save someone's life.

WTF is wrong with you?

Hi Jerry,

Just follow the instructions on bag. I do at least the first two times. Try to do a thrd after a big rain.

You won't regret the expense. The yiels is boosted.

I had the worst crop of tomatoes that I ever had last year but others in the area said the same thing so it wasn't just me. Anything I can do to increase yield is OK with me. I tilled horse manure and a cow manure/compost combo into the soil last fall along with some leaves so with your recommendation, I should be good to go!

Jerry
