   Hey all.   I almost bought some blueberry bushes without asking if they use Neonicotinoids.      Anybody have any thoughts on Neonicotinoids?        I see Wikiepedia says that Neonicotinoids have a half life of 34 days in full sun.  Not sure what that means though.       Luckily I am on t...

Last week’s wind really dried the landscape. It was as if the strong winds blowing in from the centre of this hot continent stole every drop of moisture from the soil surface on the farm and then just took all of that moisture somewhere else. On the other hand that lack of moisture made the const...

Pond - the area between bridges filled and starting holding water before it was completely dredged, but the ducks love it. The area below the lower bridge is slow going and required putting in access for a back hoe and spending a lot of time doing stump removal. If larger equipment could be broug...
