Barbara that sounds like a great plan!

Seems a good dog, Barbara! I love animals - and people - with a will of their own.

Sorry about your mosquito hell Randy.  I hate those buggers!  I've been on top of hills before where there was no standing water that I could detect for a mile, and still been covered with them the instant I stopped moving.  Uggg!

I could put-up with all the critters eating my garden in the country, but not mosquitoes!  That's why if I move to a warmer climate, it will be to another dry one.

Not awake yet, I mean Joan - not Ruth.

Comment by Barbara Livingston on September 6, 2014 at 7:17am

Ruth, I adopted Lily in late June at 7 lbs. thinking she was a maltese mix and 6 mos. old.. I quickly learned she was NOT maltese, but a 4 mo. old Chinese Crested Powder Puff mix - the mix being who knows what but her behavior indicates Jack Russell Terrier.  She is now 15.2 lbs and a very stubborn, feisty, and lovable piece of work!  Chews on my plants, digs holes, caught and killed a cowbird, has left her "mark" on door frames, chairs, bookcase, recliner, cell phone charger, and probably other things I don't even know about. Rescue dogs are the Best!

Oh, yes.  I forgot about grass!  A tiller is a huge time and aching back saver on grass!

Comment by Randall Smith on September 6, 2014 at 7:11am

Barbara, good luck with the new tiller. Even with a more powerful tiller, turning sod is difficult. Don't hurt your back.

My potatoes are the largest I've ever had. A rainy summer made the difference. Surprisingly, my onions were not so big. A major drawback to all the rain is the mosquito population. I have to take a bath in "Off" before entering the yard and garden. I have no standing water around--must be the farm fields.

Spud, I don't have a clue as I just discovered the process about a month ago via online site.  You have a point and I'll definitely check into it.

I just couldn't face the idea of having to dig up all the grass for planting beds, etc. without a tiller.  Decided it was a good investment. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 6, 2014 at 6:13am

Barbara, glad you're getting a tiller.  Saves a lot of work.

How do you harvest the potatoes in the tower.  Do you harvest them all at once, or can you tear into the cardboard to get baby ones?

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 5, 2014 at 9:17pm

Barbara, so very nice to read your posts. Looks like you have been getting valuable information for exploring and experimenting. Always something to learn if one gardens. Do you have photos of garden and your new dog? Would love to see them. I used ollas when I gardened in El Paso and in Killeen. It is a great way to get water to the roots.
