What The Bug?

Can you help identify this bug?  It's not in my 'Handbook of Natural Insects and Disease Control'.

It looks like a ladybug, but I don't see any listed here with the same markings.  I also don't see a split down the back that would allow for wings - and they aren't… Continue

Hi Michael, totally new to this homegrown thing, I found you through a google search for tobacco, it would seem that you're one of the few people in this whole city that has grown tobacco and put something out on the internet about it.  I'd love to meet up with you sometime if you ever have the time, I'm about to start growing myself!  Either way, it looks like you've been up to some really cool stuff.  Way to go!

Hi Michael! I saw your green rabbit hutch roof last summer and made a similar design on my chicken coop. I was wondering how yours has held up? OUrs is framed with 2x4's so it is kind of shallow. We grew some radishes in it which did okay for a while but the wind and sun left it pretty dry in the late summer. What type of plants did you grow in yours? Have you made any modifications? THanks for any input, your backyard is looking great--and the homebrew looks delicious!

Bonsai Stout Homebrew

The Bonsai Stout is an original recipe by my home-brew buddy Mike. Sake yeast is used instead of typical ale yeast to give it a unique flavor. I'm brewing this beer for the AHB Community School BrewFest this November. ahbcs.org/ Music by The…

Swat Teams Raid US Farms, Destroy Food with Bleach and kill Livestock!

"Disgusting!  The USDA lets companies use "pink slime" but it's not okay to eat homegrown food?!?!?  And THIS is one of the many reasons I grow my own food and sell heirloom seeds.  Fight for your right to grow!"
