Been propagating sweet basil like a beast. Picked up some lemon basil cuttings. Thai basil was lost to sugar ants the second it started flowering. Will prepare better next year for that.

I'm trying to make my mint plant grow but it seems to just keep dying and drying up with each passing day. This summer was unnecessary cruel but I need my mint tea

When fields lie calm and wind stands still
Run home, run home
As the crows make night of the fading sun
Hide now, hide now

When the trees do bow, as if they weep
Stay down, stay down
Through its light beckons forth, a melody calls out
Too late, too late

I've been growing a native plant garden since 2 years ago. This year all my shrubs finally really took off and produced fruit (elderberry, choke cherry, purple flowering raspberry). I keep seeing viceroys but no monarchs (though I don't mind - I just wanted native butterflies and animals). I also saw a mink one day which was insanely cool, but never again. Two chipmunks live under my groundcover now too.

I’ve had the same problem. Have you tried a peppermint plant out of direct sunlight for some reason that’s been thriving where I am.

That’s really cool anon! I remember chipmunks from when I was a kid. Little ground squirrels with their burrows. Has it been easy to grow all that?

My brother is growing pumpkins and I planted a potato from the kitchen that was starting to grow a small stem. Both of them are doing pretty well. My brother has a lot more knowledge and experience gardening some I’m hoping to have him teach me more because gardening does interest me a lot and teaches me a lot about patience.

I moved in with my bf, who I guess you could call a prepper, and we grow most of our own food. We've been harvesting winter crops for the last few weeks and preparing them for storage. I'm eating some right now since we got absolutely massive cauliflowers, easily 3x the weight of anything store-bought, and they make for delicious cauliflower cheese casseroles.

My number one tip is to avoid expensive pesticides, build a timber frame and use camping magnetic strips to make anti-pest cloth hoods for your plots of any size that are miles more effective, won't be blown down in the wind, can be easily removed for harvest and maintenance, and only need bits replaced every 6 months or so for about $5 of material.

My favourite thing is caring for the crops every day by hand watering, inspecting and keeping them healthy. Weirdly it gives me babymaking brooding feels.

Stop interacting with obvious bait.

Yeah! Much easier than gardening with exotics or indoor gardening. Since native plants evolved to thrive in the existing outdoor climate they don't really need any tending aside from just planting them and mulching initially if they're shrubs.

How was it bait? I reverse image searched the sigil and the answer was the same
