2018 Garden, Day 18: From the flames… food! (A documentary)


Nature’s foodstuff.

An edible.

A calorie producer.

A comestible.

Something that arises, in a way, from the flames, feeding the gardener and his mate. In today’s fascinating look at propagating and planting yams, we see the deep connection between food and fire. From minisetts… to your TV set.

10 Largest Dogs Ever You Won’t Believe Exist

Some breeds of dogs have been around since ancient times. Most dogs are bred for a lot of different things, from protecting livestock, and protecting their owners, to being faithful and loyal companions.

But in order for a dog to be protective, it’s should be bred with the size it needs to be effective. Join us as we take a look at 10 of the largest dogs ever.

1. Hulk, the Pit Bull – The name ‘Hulk’ fits this pit bull dog perfectly because he is a giant 175lbs, and stands on his hind legs almost 5 feet tall. And while he might seem big and scary, his owners say that he is very gentle and is even trusted around their young son.

2. Freddy, the Great Dane – It’s probably no surprise to many that the Great Dane is one of the largest breeds of dog in the world, but Freddy takes the breed to a whole new level of big. He stands 7ft 6 inches on his hind legs, 2 feet taller than his owner, and weighs 200lbs!

3. Zorba, the English Mastiff – This English Mastiff was a legend when it comes to some of the world’s biggest dogs. You may know that when it comes to the combination of weight and height, nothing can beat this breed of canine. Many Mastiffs average up to 190 pounds, but it’s not unusual for these giants to weigh around 225 pounds at full maturity.

4. CH Samson, the Neapolitan Mastiff – This breed of Mastiff, called ‘Mastino Napolitano’ is actually an ancient dog breed, and that might explain the size of this rare dog. CH Samson was one of the largest and heaviest Mastiffs and weighed a whopping 225 pounds at just two and a half years old.

5. Zeus the Great Dane – Zeus, who lived in Otsego, Michigan, was named the world’s tallest dog by the Guinness World Records in 2012. He measured an incredible 44 inches from his feet to the middle of his shoulder blades.

6. Newfoundland – Unlike many larger breeds, the Newfoundland wasn’t bred to be a guard dog. Instead, it was bred to help fishermen. These big, muscular dogs are able to haul nets and lines from boats, pull carts and, most importantly, fetch anything that falls overboard into the water, including people.

7. The Irish Wolfhound – Like the Scottish deerhound, the Irish wolfhound, as its name implies, was bred to chase down wolves. Developed from war hounds into a dog that was used for hunting and guarding, the Irish wolfhound is ancient breed of canine, and may have been brought to Ireland as far back as 7000 B.C.

8. Leonberger – This large breed of dog began as a mix between a Newfoundland and a Saint Bernard. In the mid-1840s, Heinrich Essig of Leonberg, Germany, crossed a Newfoundland with a Saint Bernard for four generations, then added in a Pyrenean Mountain Dog to the mix.

9. Caucasian Shepherd – This big dog was bred to do one thing only, and that is to protect sheep from wolves, and any other predator that dares attack a shepherd’s flock. However, these dogs can and have been used to protect other livestock.

10. The Anatolian Shepherd – This canine was bred to be a shepherd’s companion and livestock guardian. The interesting thing about them is that they were bred for their size and color so that they matched the livestock that they were protecting.

How to Germinate Apple Seeds Quick and Easy (TCEG Episode 4) (Day 12 of 30)

In episode 4 of Totally Crazy Easy Gardening, I share how to germinate apple seeds the easy way. Apple seeds are easy to grow, provided you mimic nature. They often require stratification – or a time of chilling – to start making roots. I get excellent germination rates on my apple trees. Johnny Appleseed was right to plant apple trees from seed: it’s worth doing and you can do it at home!

To find out more on Kuffel Creek Apple Nursery, Kevin Hauser and his book “Growing Apples in the Tropics,” visit their website here: http://www.kuffelcreek.com/applenursery.htm

I also recommend you visit my friend Steven Edholm’s site for a lot of apple growing ideas along with grafting here: http://skillcult.com/

Never Throw Away Wood Ash if You Have a Garden

Each cord of firewood that you burn leaves you with 20 pounds of ashes or more, depending on your fuel source, heating appliance, and wood-burning skill. Wood ash is primarily composed of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium, but also contains trace amounts of iron, sodium and zinc.
Because it’s created through the combustion of plant materials, it holds many of the elements needed to support new growth and has long been used by gardeners and farmers as a natural soil amendment. Here are top 5 uses of wood ash in your yard.

1.Neutralize Acidic Soil.
Unless you are growing acid-loving plants like blueberries, peppers, and azaleas, you will want to maintain a soil pH of between 6 to 7.5 in your garden beds. This range is considered ideal because nutrients in fertilizers will be readily dissolved in water and better absorbed by the plant’s roots.
Acidic soil (a pH below 6) means plants won’t receive enough nitrogen, phosphorus, or potassium. Wood ash contains up to 70% calcium carbonate and can be used as a substitute for lime. As a general rule, never exceed 25 pounds of wood ash per 1,000 square feet of soil and always re-test your soil after applying wood ash.

2.Add it to Your Compost Pile.
Wood ash added to your compost will help boost the heap’s potassium levels, a key nutrient for flowering and fruiting. But including wood ash in the compost should be done in moderation – at a rate of every six inches of compost pile – because wood ash is alkaline. Too much of the stuff will raise the pH value of your compost pile.
3.Make Ash Tea.
Just as compost tea is an awesome organic, all-purpose fertilizer, ash tea can likewise be brewed to prevent or correct potassium deficiencies. Brown spots, curling leaf tips, yellowing between leaf veins, slower plant growth and reduced crop yield are some of the telltale signs your plants are not receiving enough potassium.
To make tea from wood ash, place five pounds of ash in a cloth bag (like an old pillowcase) and tie it closed. Place the ash bag in a 50-gallon garbage bin filled with water and allow it to steep for several days. Once the ash tea has brewed, pour about a cup’s worth around your plants weekly.

4.Fertilize Your Lawn
A light dusting of wood ash on the lawn can help promote greener pastures. After applying ashes to your yard, water it well to prevent the beneficial nutrients from blowing away.

5.Melt Ice & Snow
One safe and natural alternative to create traction, de-ice, and melt snow is wood ashes. Because wood ash contains potash – or potassium carbonate – a type of salt that is much eco-friendlier than chloride-based salts, it can help break up ice and melt snow when scattered on driveways and walkways.  Unlike rock salt, it won’t corrode surfaces like concrete and metal, harm the paws of your four-legged friends, or damage your plants come spring.
