• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

OK no pics of the horrer I have been experiencing. A worm has systematicly been eating my seedlings.Fortunately the plants will survive with their tip untouched, that was their plan probly from instincers. overall they look great and despite repeated attemts to find the culprit I found a means to eliminate it. A small dose of sevin into a flooded water suppply. It should work..

I have my good years when I make an effort my friend. I will replenish a few years of canned tomatoes, green beans deer permitting, and purplehull peas. for some reason my sweet corn is unmolessted usually. my neighbor puts up temp fences to supposedly keep deer out. they dont work. I watched him today doing that.

I got an inch of rain the other day and pumped the pond into secondary and dug then released the dam on secondary to dig again and you get the pic. Clay is way to hard to dig dry .way to sticky when wet . you have to find a medium.

You've got to give those ancient folks credit, though, for being able to start a fire 2 feet below a pond. I guess they didn't have the technology yet to make a hot water heater any other way.
