Also carrot and parsnips I now sow as soon as I get the seed because they dont have a great viability if they are left too long. Hope that works for you!



That's interesting... My mentor farmer in Maine Organic Farmers' & Gardeners' Assn (MOFGA) lo, these many years gone, always had a few old saws at the ready. One was "Sand in clay, money thrown away; Clay in sand, money in hand." Interesting to hear positive results from doing it bass'ack'ards. 😁

That’s the beauty of it all. I just wish I had more things to use the whey for. Our of every 2 gallons I start, I end up with 1 1/2 gallon of whey and 1/2 gallon of kefir yogurt/cheese. As it is, most of it goes into the drain.



Would the whey be nutritious for your garden? That would be cool.

Can you make them profane? I glad you asked. Dropping an "F" into anything does the trick:
ROTF LMFAO

I'll stop before I get to TEOTWAWKI, or worse. I think these fall within the General Consensus. Please correct me if needed.
