  • Garnering extra nutrients with side-dressing

    BY JENEEN WICHE
    Weekend Gardener

    We have spent more than 10 years improving our vegetable garden by adding composted horse manure, composted sheep manure and composted chicken manure at the end of each season. The result is a seriously well-drained plot that has the capacity to retain moisture and slowly feed what we plant. I am so looking forward to the vegetable garden this year because last year was such a disappointment!

    “Right here in the house,” he replied.

    “But,” she continued, “what about the horrible smell?”

    “I got used to it,” he said. “I’m sure the raccoon will too.”

  • The rock is a reminder for people to never forget God's work in their lives

    Although I don’t think it’s terminal, it is chronic: I have a chronic case of CRS – Can’t Remember Stuff.

    That’s the diagnosis one of my co-workers gave me the other day. He may or may not have been joking.

    I tell people all the time to please, please, please remind me of stuff. It’s the CRS, folks. I just can’t remember.

    At least I’m not alone. The ancient Israelites had it too. They were always forgetting stuff, mostly the stuff God had done for them, even rescuing them from years of slavery in Egypt.
