    Companion Planting: Why Vegetables Need Friends

    Flowers: theyโ€™re not just pretty to look at, they can really help to improve the way we grow our fruits and vegetables.

    In this short video weโ€™ll show you how to harness the power of flowers to deter pests, attract beneficial insects including pollinators, and even improve your soil.

    If you love growing your own food, why not take a look at our online Garden Planner which is available from several major websites and seed suppliers:

      I gardened organically back in the 70’s and used companion planting. It worked really well. The only real problem I had was the ants getting my okra. I finally had to sprinkle bone meal around each plant each day after I watered. That stopped the ants cold. But I had a beautiful garden.

        Sounds lovely, aus. Ants have their place in creation, but NOT in your vegetables…lol! Otherwise, working the soil can be quite calming.

        My paternal grandfather always had his front and side yards planted with big sunflowers, sweet peas, geraniums and other colorful plants surrounding his vegetable garden. That was very much a tradition of his Southern family.

    Hedging to conceal the foundation on the west is in, fruit trees for this year are in, tomatoes are in, grape vines are in. Next the peppers, beans, Russian kiwis and burning bushes for screening. Luckily there aren’t any good movies this weekend.

    10 beautiful things

    1) Law abiding alligators.

    2) The Washington Postโ€™s first response to the Wood/McMurty letter of intent is to state that the Nick Sandmann lawsuit is politically motivated.

    ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฃ

    Iโ€™m not sure that Wood and McMurty could have hoped for a better response. WP response helps make the case against itself.

    Who knows maybe WP canโ€™t afford to pay its attorneys and Michael Avenatti is working for them pro bono.

    Delicious.

    3) James Comey has lost his mind. He is a babbling mass of nonsense. I expect him to break into โ€œ๐ŸŽผ Wonโ€™t you be my neighbor ๐ŸŽผโ€ during an interview any day now.

    4) โ€œI am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016.โ€Attorney General William Barr

    More and more Liberal elites are coming to the realization of just how much trouble they are in. Pain is on the way for the criminals who have so richly earned it.

    5) The awesomeness of this homemade Orrery cannot be expressed in mere words.

    6) The Clintons are getting heckled on their Groupon tour. And Hillary is calling the hecklers
    โ€œagent provocateurs.โ€ Such fancifulness from The Beast.

    7) Nigel Farage is back to taking a front and center role in the fight for the soul of Britain.

    8) President Trumpโ€™s tweet excoriating the vile terrorist apologist Omar.

    9) As always the Left has fallen into President Trumpโ€™s snare. The above video ^ ^ has the Leftist screeching that President Trump is endangering the life of Omar. That screeching has opened the door to a wider audience of holding the MSM and Hollywood accountable for the hate they have fostered in our country against President Trump.

    The MAGA crowd is asking of the MSM and Hollywood if the malicious unfounded vitriol that they spewed toward our president is endangering his life.

    10) A dew covered Ladybug.

    Well well well.

    I did quite a bit of reading yesterday and somehow missed this darling little tidbit.

    His (Assange) arrest became possible after Ecuador revoked his political asylum, complaining that he was an obnoxious houseguest who didnโ€™t clean up after his cat and that WikiLeaks was plotting to blackmail the Latin American countryโ€™s president.

    https://apnews.com/98f7ec1528bf4e9d9edd78271c31c16b

    The plot thickens.

      It’s often small things that cause a person to disrespect another. When I read about Assange not properly taking care of his cat in the way of feeding and clean-up, I realized it didn’t matter to me what tiny bit of good he may have done or possibly will do. He has chosen his life, chose neglect of an animal over caring and loving. Yes, we reveal our character in the small things more often than the large.

        I am not standing up for Assange, but………..remember………….THEY lie and lie and lie. We really don’t know yet what the truth is, It may be a long time before we do know. On the other hand, this could be true. ๐Ÿ™„

        Morning Tessa ๐Ÿ™‚ , I’ve read that article. I would say that article in particular is one the articles that is singing from the same page, it is a narrative that seems to have been started to be pushed in January of 2018.

        I’ve been doing a lot of reading and tend to lean toward your opinion of Assange. It is very likely that American patriots were killed because of his carelessness or his malice.

        All the good lies are based in a truth, but I’m very doubtful that Julian was as grotesquely hygienic as he is now being portrayed nor do I believe that man who neglected his cat would have made arrangements to have the cat safely leave the embassy with his attorneys in anticipation of his own arrest.

        Over the last few days I’ve listened to hours of interviews with Asange spanning years. Brilliant guy, high IQ, anti-American, anti-Trump. A True Believer in many ways.

        My question is, why arrest him now? I have my thoughts on that but that is all they are at this point.

    Today was my father’s birthday, but I won’t bore you all with a tribute to him – I’ll wait until Father’s Day to do that.

    Thanks to all my clever friends here at Stella’s for funny, informative, beautiful and intelligent comments. Just think – Stella’s could be riddled by trolls – but isn’t.

    I moved my tomato plants out to the top of my patio table yesterday, but they are in a make-do greenhouse made out of a large clear storage container. It’s still a bit coolish, so we will see how they do. They really needed the sunshine, because I started them too early in my zeal for Spring! I repotted some into 6″ pots the other day, and those are taking off, and getting awfully tall. Repotted some peppers, and they look good too, and started some others. I have three varieties, and curious to see how they all do. Two of the varieties are small and will do well in containers; one is a jalapeno, and the other is a small orange pepper that looks hot, but isn’t, called Tangerine Dream.

    Happy gardening to all!

        We had a delicious breakfast at a little diner near where we are house hunting. Rural area near a small town. Cost under fifteen dollars.

        Been a long time since I was in a place like that. One family, three generations of men, and a few women, said grace at a big table near us. I hadn’t noticed but I guess almost every man in the place had a ball cap on. And every one near who heard that, every generation from the two old men with canes propped up to the handsome young man with his mama whipped those hats off immediately when the praying started.

        I sure like small town people. And diners. And biscuits. It was a good start to the day.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    It was much easier to post the prayers tonight than last night. The Dr. had given me a muscle relaxer because I was complaining about having some weird headaches and she thought it might me from tense muscles. I took one last night to see how I would handle it. Not well. Within a few minutes my mouth was so dry I could hardly talk, and when I did it sounded like I was drunk. Also, I had trouble staying awake and was so weak all over that I could hardly move. I also started sweating. It was awful. I went to bed early because I was afraid if I waited I wouldn’t be able to get up the stairs. I felt weird and uneasy all night along with sweating. I woke up fine this morning, though. Won’t be taking that again and I will have the doc put it on my chart. ๐Ÿ™„

        I intend to. I had taken a muscle relaxer after an accident back in the 70’s. It did nothing but stop the pain I was having. This is something even my friend who knows a lot of pharmaceutical terms had never heard of, Tizanidine. Probably some new designer drug. I try to avoid taking anything unless I have to because I have had bad reactions to many things. I only tried this because I thought I might have some mobility problems after my flight.

      Sorry that you had such an awful experience Aus. My mother in law, more often than not has awful reactions to prescription drugs.

      I’m happy you took good care of you, I hope you find the source of your headaches and a way to cure them.

      If it is stress simply stretching exercises can help.
