Gardening Tips

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, and learned another garden trick this year. I have never used an inoculant with our beans seeds, but this year, I coated our lima beans prior to planting. Have raised them for some 50 plus years but today we picked a gallon from a 25' row and we are a week from our first frost. They always played out during August. Sad that I did not read more in my youth. Also gathered 2 bushels of Arkansas Black apples. This is a tart mountain apple and our favorite. We picked 4 gallons of muscadines. We are running out of canning jars. Two things I regret about not planting 30 years ago at our little 6 acre farm and that is pecan and maple syrup trees. East Tenn is unusual in that you can raise both. East Tenn has trees from the north and south. A more diverse forest than any section of the US. If you are less than 50, you have time to develop a survival farm for your old age. You must have water.......or forget it. I promise you there is a difference in what you raise and what is in the store. Think my gardening is the reason I am still above ground. My 3 best HS buddies were gone years ago....all from cancer. You are what you eat. None gardened.
