I don’t buy “organic” foods. I just try my best to keep what I grow safe to eat. I use the MG on my flower beds. I don’t eat many flowers. Well, except for my black opal basil and Greek oregano. Those  never need any additional stuff to make them grow.

RG, the last three weeks I've had a rash on my sides near my arm pits. As well as on my forearm. It's not acting like poison ivy or oak. And I was doing a good bit of weeding in the garden. It's getting better but still hanging on. I didn't notice any new weeds in the garden. I attributed the rash to heat rash as it has been crazy hot and humid at work.

I always carried a bottle with baking soda in my truck when I was working. It works wonders on getting rid of  heat rash.

Making a paste out of it and putting the paste on a bee sting takes the sting out of the sting.

Mine is healing well after 4 days of taking cetirizine ( aka Zyrtec). Stopped the reaction cold in a couple days. I’m sure mine was plant based. Just can’t identify which weed caused it. I bought the Walmart Equate brand. Same exact dose for 1/3 the cost of the name brand. I took 1 the first 24 hrs, another and another 12 hrs later. Then 2 more at 12 hr intervals. Stopped taking it yesterday. 1% hydrocortisone helped relieve the itching.

Worked for me anyway.

Good news is, my beans have already sprouted and the garlic experiment is working. They’re growing up through already.. it’ll be interesting to see what I get.

Benadryl cream works wonders on insect bites. I’ve used it a couple times at the golf course where I’m working. We’re moving targets for every biting bug there is when we’re mowing.

Speaking of golf…my Son and I are playing the club today. Sure is a benefit to play a $60 per round course free. Also nice to experience the fruits of our labors. It’s kind of our 18 hole garden.

rash could be limes disease. read up on it. had a friend that rashed out all over one side from it.  was super allergic or something?

Additionally, knowing what I know about tilapia imported from Asian and other countries you couldn't pay me to buy or eat them. Last I knew they are exempt from any restrictions like they are in the U.S. (other than the methyl- testosterone) as in we are not allowed to use drugs or other chemicals and they can grow them at high densities in sewage treatment ponds, and throw the kitchen sink at them as in chemicals to keep them alive.

that kind of s___ blows my mind!  why we have to grow food "safely" here, but we can import stuff grown without regulations at all!  who is the moron making this possible? lol

isnt fish food full of contaminates too?  its everywhere you turn! in the food in the water in the air. then we have companies like J&J and monsantos that knowingly poison millions of people for decades!  those people should be tied in the town square and stoned. imo  maybe next guy would think twice.

Actually it’s Lyme disease. It manifests with a circular rash at the infection site. It’s very treatable but persistent.

Nothing like what I had. Or what was described.

Who are the people that make that possible? Politiicans of course that take lobby money.

Fish food here is NOT contaminated no matter what you read or hear. It's very tightly controlled and inspected.

Personally think the whole glyposates controversy is overblown. It breaks down rapidly in the soil and people that allegedly got sick from it weren't following proper precautions. When spraying any herbicide keep it off your skin and out of your lungs! Common sense! It sure is a gravy train for law firms though.

Every year Donna and I plant what are "supposed to be" hardy mums out front of the porch.
And they never come back up the following year.
Not this year.
My son Jeff is buyin the house by year's end.
So he can play those games here on out.

This one sat on the picnic table in a pot outside all winter. It decided to come back this year.



So I stuck it in the ground and it’s pretty happy.

Same here Mac. I don’t know what they mean by “hardy”
 But my mom always has some come back.  But there under one metal roof that piles a lot of snow on them..

Same - ours were in a garden below the porch awning.
An awning that dumps a TON of snow down on top of the garden.
Still.................

We have been told that "hardy" mums will come up every year.
But we have not been succesful.

There’s supposedly a variety called Igloo Garden Mums that are purported to be hardy to -30f. I can’t find any info on where to get them. I’d love to have some for my gardens. I’m gonna mulch the heck out of mine in hopes that it comes back next year. That pot had purple and white. Looks like the white survived.
