Catherine,
I'm always blessed by the things you share on this forum. We would definitely miss out on so much if you weren't here. It such a pleasure to meet you yesterday at the market. Thanks for the message. I think the VPA will certainly try to be a presence at the Mesa Market when volunteers are able to staff it. I loved meeting everyone there. I think Bill and Roger will be able to come most often since they live in the area. God Bless and Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Catherine for your sweet compliments! :) I sure enjoy and process all of your advice, help, guidance. You cannot know how grateful I am to all the very seasoned gardeners that help all of us newbies and jr gardeners!

Catherine, I did a search on ginger and your post surfaced from over a year ago.  You mentioned that you were going to move your ginger to a shadier spot to try to achieve larger rhizomes.  I was wondering how that turned out for you.  I am contemplating planting ginger on a north facing wall that only gets sun in the dead of winter.

Thank you Catherine,

 Do you know anything about boysenberries.  I planted one last spring in the dormant stage. This spring it spouted out all over the place.  Am I supposed to trim it this first year?        Phil

I notice you have had success with alpine strawberries . I have sadly killed my share but adore them. Could you tell me where you got yours where you planted and when you planted.
Thanks

Hi Catherine,

I was perusing the forums and noticed several of your threads about the multiple BBC series' about farming - War Time, Edwardian and Victorian.  My husband and I love those series!  I thought I'd mention one more that I'm not sure you've found called  Tales from the Green Valley which is based in the late Tudor period.  It precedes all the others and led to their creation.  Here's the link:

Hi Catherine,

We are having a event Oct 24 at Phoenix City Hall, Food Day.  Would you be interested in having a table you could sell if you like but I think you would be great addition to the program....

Yes, that's it!!  Thank you!  When I get offsets, would you like  one?

Catherine,

That sounds lovely, but I don't think so.  I'm not getting any scent from it, even after accidentally sticking a leaf up my nose:-)  I seem to remember that the roots were used, as a fixative ingredient.  Don't spend to much time on it, just wanted to know the name if it works out well in AP and as livestock feed.

Thanks again,

Lis

Catherine,

I wonder if you could help me ID a plant?  Here is what I remember about it: a relative of lemon grass, was used in the SE for levee stabilization as it adapts easily to changing water levels at its crown, produces roots 6' and longer, roots are used in India as ingredient in perfumes, was on Travis Hughey's Barrelponics site but has since been removed.  I ordered plants online from a lady in Texas with small herb business.  Of course, I can't remember her name or the plant's name or find the paper work, sigh.  Have two plants doing well, one in aquaponics and one in a pot.  I tried looking through the family listing, but couldn't make a definitive match.

Thank you in advance,

Lisette

The bed walls and the supports are constructed of pressure treated wood.  The inside of the walls and supports are covered with asphalt emulsion.  The ends that are cut and exposing the wood I am unsure if this will be accessible to the termites or should we cover them with asphalt emulsion too.  Plant matter - does this involve the plant and roots themselves?

Catherine - help!  Our community garden of raised beds is infested with termites.  What should we do?  Do they eat the plants?  We want the garden to be organic. Can termites benefit the garden or cause more harm?  Scared to death...Carol

Thank you Catherine.  I do have a great area for sun exposure.  I wonder if too much is possible.  I also noticed the earth sighed as I removed the black plastic that the rocks were laying on top of.  This is all new to me.  I just did not use black plastic under everything in the East.

Thanks for asking Catherine. After a week of a very guarded prognosis...last Friday the vet said she looked "Great".  Now she will be checking her just once a week.  She's really starting to try to jump around and play again, I just hope she doesn't over do it :)  Thank you for recommending Dr. Stolz. On her advice, I ordered some Symphytum 30C that will hopefully be here any day! Thanks again Catherine!  Enjoy your week.  Isn't it beautiful out?

Thanks Catherine.  I took her to our large animal vet who took x-rays and set and casted the break. She told me most vets will not cast, as the main concern was circulation. She showed me how to check the cast a couple times a day to make sure it's not getting too tight.  It happened Monday and already she has checked on her twice when I pull into the parking lot :) She is very kind and also owns goats but was very guarded in her prognosis concerning the circulation issue.  That is why I am curious as to a holistic approach making sure I am doing all that I can to facilitate her recovery.  Thank you for the information :)  Carrie
