How to Squirrel Proof Your Fruit Trees

We’ve been guilty in the past of claiming that growing fruit is labor-free. That’s a lazy blogger’s lie. The truth is that you have to stay on top of pruning, irrigation, fruit thinning, fertilizing and pest prevention if you want to harvest any fruit. After not getting a single peach off our small tree last […]

In Praise of Backward Compatibility

The garden of nerdiness has many flowers: comic book nerds, computer nerds, fantasy nerds, sci-fi nerds–too many to list. After fifty years I’ve finally recognized my own personal nerd category. I’m an electromechanical nerd. This tendency manifests in an obsession with old telephones, the ability to thread a 16mm projector, fantasizing about the mimeographed version […]

A Lecture on the Connection Between Cats and Grain

If not for cats would we have bread? On Saturday June 4th at 2 p.m. at the Los Angeles Bread Festival at Grand Central Market I’m going to deliver a talk on the connection between cats and grain. The connection is a basic one: store grain and you get vermin. Then you need cats. But, […]

Book Review: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer

I’m actually writing this review before I’ve even finished Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, because I’m savoring it so slowly it’s taking me forever to finish, and at the same time, I’m so excited about the book I couldn’t wait any longer to tell you all about it. In […]

Thanks! I was interested in your comment regarding bringing 4H to city kids. I have been thinking about doing something similar to that where inner city kids could come to the farm as part of a summer program. They could be part of the planting, harvesting and selling of veggies (learning life skills) in addition to feeding and caring for the animals. I have a friend who works with kids in East L.A. as part of an after school program and we are trying to incorporate the concept into a package that works here in MA. Big Plans!...maybe too big. And yes, hippie attire is mandatory
