The Farm Report~ First Edition

Introduction by Wilma:
It's finally here. The day we talked about a few weeks back. Farmer Dad stopped gardening long enough to share a few thoughts with you all. I hope you enjoy. If not, I have no problem pulling a Donald Trump on him;) 
Take it away Dad!

Not much to look at right now, but with a little work, a lot of luck, and some help from Mother Nature if She's willing, it should look something like this in about a month. 
This was taken sometime in June of 2008, a very good year in the garden. 2009? not so much, but we still managed to kick out the jams using my special super-secret organic soil prep regimen and maintenance program. Look, if I told you all of the details, I'd have to...well...Lets just say that it's loosely based upon one very simple principle: Feed the soil first! I spend at least 2 weeks every April making my Def Mix of nutrients: fireplace ash, used coffee grounds, kelp meal, compost, epsom salt, manure, you get the idea.Then I let it cook for about 2 weeks, turning the soil frequently. During the season, I feed regularly with fish emulsion,molasses,kelp,and compost. Pest control? We usually farm out that work to nematodes,preying mantis,and birds 

On a side note, Wil usually tries to roll in the manure. I hope I didn't just blow my chance at a return appearance by saying that, but it is what it is,Willie D. Just accept it and move on, everybody's got issues,including Y.O.U. You're still the coolest in my book.
Until next time, I'll leave you all to contemplate the Grinch Pepper
Thanks for the Love,Wil. Stay Pug.

  6. Much LOVE for bro's guest post here! I had no idea of all that work that went into the Def Mix and the soil feeding ... all I know is that it works! Hope to hear more from Wil's dad in the future and looking forward to the bountiful harvest! :)


  7. Wil's Dad is a man of many talents and gardening is certainly one of the best. In his post, however, he left out one important thing, maybe two, and I quote: "with a little work, a lot of luck, and some help from Mother Nature if She's willing". How about a shout out for watering Grampy? A man who leaves the sanctuary of his home in the cold and heat, arranges the hose just so, and has the hardship of dealing with mowing guy who moves the hose...just to help out Mother nature on her slacking days. I say he deserves an extra asparagus!

  8. Hi folks,
    Checking in to thank you for your responses to Dad's guest blog. He assures me he will address the comments soon. He enjoyed posting and promised to do it again. Grammy, I give permission for Grampy to have all the asparagus he wants.It's an important job he does as Irrigation Specialist.
