Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I have finally figured out some of the things I want to grow in my garden. It took forever to decide but I have created a short list.

-a mixture of herbs good for cooking stuff like mint etc.
-maybe some sort of bean.
-roses are already planted in my yard

I'm not sure what else to grow if you have any suggestions please let me know :D

Hannah, what are you basing this list on? Have you been asking people? My Academy is starting to ask these questions. Take a look at our Academy questions: http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/were-looking-to-learn-about

Hannah, careful to pay attention to water/shade/sun requirements. Basil often thrives in sun, as can thyme and rosemary (these last two are perennials--plant them in borders or near roses, perhaps?) ... Mint might like shade of Sunflowers since it doesn't like to burn...Beans might like to climb sunflowers, so if you get really tall sunflowers you can double efficiency. Birds like sunflower seeds, though, so if you want to harvest, maybe get couple of extra and cover "yours" with cheesecloth or something as seeds ripen, and leave one for the birds? Peppers are good plants; cuc**bers might be easy to grow if you already have trellis for roses and extra space. Pansies might not be summer season flowers, depending on your climate. Nasturtiums are beautiful climbing, hanging, or ground-trailing flowers (you train the stems) which are colorful, edible, attractive to butterflies, and easy to get seeds for succession planting or for next year. Snapdragons are fun; you might like zinnias as well. Chrysanthemums are good for fall, and perennials, as well. Marigolds have very long season and repel lots of pest-insects; tomatoes can be bush or hung upside down, but if you get large plants you should have a cage or support to protect in winds and all. Are you planting in-ground, or in containers, or?? Have fun with the garden.

Tomatoes are very hard to plant, and grow but it is a good investment to put into your garden. I prefer roses, and strawberries for my garden though those are also difficult to manage. Good luck!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
