    Scale Bugs on Weed?

    Having citrus trees means I'll always have to control scale but lately they seem to have branched out, so to speak and are finding the joy of other types of plant sap.

    Composting, the Right Way!

    Ha, the "right way." There is no "right way." From 3' x 3' piles and turning every day or so and watering or allowing shit to age in a plastic bag or bucket there really is no "right way." The whole idea of composting is to break down organic matrer to use as an additive to plant health...
