From the Desk of John Rourke – June 23rd, 2017


Sometimes life gets busier than a one-eyed cat watching two mouse holes. That was yesterday so I am late getting this out.

Few of my plants have died off in the past week. I have mixed up the soil, added a bit of compost, peat moss – and replanted. The mulching I have done this year and combining raised beds with inground gardening has proven to be worth the effort. This “no till” gardening approach has reduced weeds dramatically. I’ll post some additional pictures later.

As far as actually “no till” that may be a bit of a stretch.I have areas where I place plants and seeds in the form of a row which tilling would prove beneficial. The mulching all around it not only keeps the weeds down but as the mulch breaks down it feeds the soil.

If you are not familiar with Andrew Wilkow you should be. He hosts a radio show and I listen to him on satellite radio. He does the absolute best job I have ever heard explaining, dissecting, and debating politics and political stories I have ever heard. A true understanding of the Constitution he has.

I’ve started to get back into couponing. The wifey is helping so it is not too time-consuming. Helps stretch the dollars.

Hate to cut this short…..I hope everyone has a great weekend. Be careful – Be safe!
