Re: Voles

I have voles in my yard.

They multiply very quickly and multiple times per year.

I use poison - same stuff for moles - and it keeps them under control, but they do seem to do a lot of damage...

Re: Garlic at Gixx's Farm

GIXX - AWESOME!!

What I've read is that garlic has an incredible urge to survive and propagate.

direct sowing and winter sowing are very similar but perhaps by sowing in a jug, you can control where the plants end up, as they are contained until planted

Re: Winter Sowing

A few years ago, I wintersowed hundreds of containers. The jugs that were in the sun germinated too early, as Luvs said.

Re: Now Boarding First Class Passengers On The U.S.A. Open-Pollinated Seed Train!

Hickory Cane is me. I bought it for 2012, so I hope it's still viable. I stored it in the fridge.
