Like a Farmer on a Budget: Multiplying Grape, Figs and Blackberries from Cuttings

This spring we are expanding into the “back 40” as my dad used to call the back pasture on the farm. This is an area we recently had to fence because we joined the lot behind us with our main house lot. In doing that we had to clear out the branches and brambles and big stumps that were in the way. And so we were left with a field. A new planting opportunity. This post looks at edible shrubs and will be of special interest to green-thumb gardeners or farmers on a budget.

Brides on a Budget: Multiplying Echeveria

I am starting Harry Lauder Walking sticks, curly willow, thornless blackberries, grapes, echeveria and potatoes from pieces of plants. This means I can make more of the things I love and want to share from things I find or split apart after growing. This post looks at Echeveria and will be of special interest to green-thumb brides on a budget.

Follow my blogs and videos, and just get growing.
