Goober Peas

Watch me being a goober planting peas for spring on Anyone remember the song "Eating Goober Peas?" My brother Pete used to sing it all the time when we were kids and I find it going through my head when I plant peas. creates Alice's Garden Advice - Planting Peas

Getting Crap in the Mail

I never thought I would be excited to receive crap in my mailbox. If you told me that this would happen just a few years ago, I would have thought it was the result of some nasty, country-living prank like cow tipping.

But, I asked for the poop the post-woman delivered. A local Connecticut company sells Cow Pots®. According to the website, "CowPots are a revolutionary seed starting pot made with 100% renewable composted cow manure. CowPots are manure-fiber based seed starter pots, which allow for unrestricted root growth creating stronger, healthier plants. These earth-friendly 'pots you plant' are an exciting high-performing alternative to plastic and peat pots."

My brother "seed boy" and I thought we'd give the shit a try. I'll let you know how we make out.
