Nice Ode to Earthworms Dallas.  Wonderful critters that help the gardner a lot.

My mother always had a xmas cactus in the window when I was young.  I never thought of it as a cactus because it had no thorns.

Comment by amer chohan on November 21, 2012 at 8:28am

I thought twice to add it in my seedlist but forgot. Once I bought a small plant taking it as Christmas cactus but it turned out to be some opuntia.

Oh! Is this Christmas cactus? Schlumbergera, I like that name. Where is the accent? 

Comment by Daniel W on November 20, 2012 at 8:41pm

Amer, do you also grow Schlumbergera cactus?  They are blooming like crazy here, right now.  

Comment by amer chohan on November 20, 2012 at 12:04pm

Joan! I am in love with my cactus. Anything in the way of their improvement attracts me heavily. After your advice I spent at least 2 hrs in search of methods and ended up buying PH testing kit used in school labs. They use Litmus papers for testing soil samples. Thanks a lot anyway.

I found litmus test strips in the grocery store yesterday. Have never noticed them before.

Backyard homestead

I thought this was a rooftop garden but it turns out to be hillside garden; lots going on in this little space.
