I was reading an old book on Vermont Folk Medicine, Dr. Jarvis was told that if he studied the instincts of honeybees, in time he would learn the medical language of Vermont Folk Medicine. He would then recognize its the language of nature which guides and protects her children by ways of instincts.

Hi All,
I am so excited Yesterday I saw a nuc box with bees for sale and bought it! So we now have the beginnings of our own hives....I know I haven't got it sorted Anastasia way but it feels so wonderful to have taken a first step.

Does anyone out there know what or how to get around all the issues re the veroa mite and the other bug that now all hives have to be registered and inspected?????

Every once in a while someone wonders if they can grow a 'ringing cedars' tree themselves. Here is a link to a free ebook by Leonid Sharashkin: "Secrets of Cedar Products" In this book he goes into detail regarding where the siberian pine can actually be grown and alternatives for regions inhospitable to pinus sibirica.

Prisoners

Maximum security is the point Man has to reach it seems before we realize we are behind bars, before we give up on amusement, and assument of each other and finally participate together.

Orphans

One needs to know no parents or family it seems, to realize the place and time to find ones Home, brothers and sisters is within God/Nature.

For 15 years I have tried and successfully failed at gardening. I have learnt an amazing amount – very little about gardening but much in regard to what Nature wants me to learn. One such example: I was about to be away for a month studying natural therapies. When I planted my seedlings in the ground I found myself worrying about who would weed the garden whilst I was away. Upon my return I raced up to the garden to see how my plants were doing. There before my eyes I had this six foot high forest of weeds. I found my little seedlings lost among them all and they hadn’t grown a single centimetre. Thus the lesson of what you focus on is what you get! So graphic! Oh! I can laugh now! (Perhaps there is room in the world for a book called, ‘What My Garden has Taught Me!’).

I have found a busy persons way of surviving a garden! This year I applied this simple system: make sure the soil is soaked, aerate with a fork, add some dolomite lime, collect chook, horse or cow manure, throw it on, cover it all with grass clippings and let it cook for a couple of weeks. Transplant the seedlings with a little agnihotre ash. And Voila - We have this incredible Abundance of healthy tasty vegetables.

Those of you who are gardeners out there are possibly hysterical – BUT it would be a sad tale if we altogether missed Nature’s offering of the Natural Law of Abundance.

The very sad and stunted Ceylon spinach...

For over 12 months this ceylon spinach plant, no bigger than my hand managed to survive alone in this large rectangle terracotta pot as we moved it from our store, to our temporary home and then eventually to our home as we live in today..

IT only got to stay around because we liked the pot and nobody had bothered to replant the pot or change the soil.. so it was a very sad state of affairs, the soil was dry and worn out and this little plant didnt grow at all, in all this time..

When we arrived to our new home at the beach there was a gardening frenzy as all our pots and plants found new homes by the sea.. And this terracotta pot ended up on the front porch, with this sad little spinach still hanging-in there.

And on this porch was were I was to sit every day for many months and drink cups of tea, by myself or with visiting friends..

And what do you know this sad old spinach that never grew in over 12 months simply took off! it made its way to the roof, wound its way around the post, and grew in every direction with the biggest spinach leaves you can imagine. I could almost see it growing it grew so fast - it was like watching Jack and the Beanstalk.. IT just grew and grew and grew and the wasps liked it so much they took up residence near it and the geckos kept them at bay.. and at night we would just come out on the porch and marvel at the spinach and the wasps and geckos...

And here it was .. the living proof that plants love us just for even being near them. We did nothing special to this plant we didnt even change the soil..

And now we nurture it and have moved it off the porch and into the garden just in front of the porch, so it can be as free as it wants. and every time I walk past it, I still marvel at this little plant that is now huge and think how marvelous nature really is..
