When I began growing ginger I expected it to be difficult, but it's not. I've been growing ginger at…Continue

Mention the word tea, and most thoughts turn to a strong hot cup of Earl Gray or a tall glass of sweet iced pekoe. But these days tea is more than black—it is green, or herbal, or something akin to hot chocolate. Regardless of how you have thought of it in the past, one thing is certain: tea is medicinal. And now, with the…Continue

Joe, the rock dust I purchased was $29 a 50 lb bag, and $20 for delivery. I'm happy to dig up the contact info for you if you're still interested. I don't know how what I paid compares to what's acceptable. I also don't know how long it "lasts", when I should add more, why more gardening types aren't interested in it, and I've never had first hand experience with it. Have just heard good things and wanted to try it. So far (about two weeks) I'm...still waiting on the dramatic difference…Continue

This week’s article is the first in a new series I’m calling Notes from Turtle Ridge. This series is definitely more personal and less academic than my regular weekly column, but hopefully, just as informative and entertaining.

Anyone who lives in or visits the Ozarks invariably notices that we have a lot of spiders. They’re in our gardens, fields, meadows, pastures and woodlands; and sometimes, they’re even in our homes. Love them or hate them, life in the Ozarks just wouldn’t be the same without a few wispy strands of spider silk brushing across your face on a woodland walk or the…Continue

After reading about Azomite Rock Dust, I've been on a search for a local source. I was pretty astonished to learn that those places where I assumed they would at least know what rock dust is, did not know, did not carry it, did not know where I could find it. But happily, I've finally found a source and am having it delivered Friday! I'm planting one raised bed with it, and have one already planted without it, so it will be a fun comparison. I also have a little worm farm so can add worm…Continue
Spring in the Ozarks wouldn’t be the same without gathering and preparing at least one pot of poke. At our house, this leafy perennial ranks right up there with other spring edibles such as asparagus. This week I was planning on writing an article on how to…Continue
Here in our little slice of Ozarks heaven, we are most fortunate to be granted the privilege of greeting every new day with a lyrical symphony of sound that has the ability take our breath away. Yet, there are those rare occasions when the sweet symphony becomes more like a raucous…Continue

With the recent passing of the vernal equinox and the end of the Great Sleep, Spring has asserted herself firmly in the Heart of the Ozarks. The rising intensity of the sun has enticed all living things to join in a brief, but joyous celebration of new beginnings that humans often associate with love. And love is…Continue

Today is the Vernal Equinox, the celestial event that marks the point in time when day and night become equal in length and spring officially begins. Of course, here in the Ozarks, spring has been well under way for several weeks now. Even before the…Continue

Dubbed the Ozarks Pot Luck & Seed Swap, my dream was to bring together area gardeners to share their knowledge and experience with other gardeners and to promote the…Continue
