    Favorite Deer Snack

    My "pet" deer love hostas, particulary when the spring shoots are just about four or five inches tall.  I've had good luck with Milorganite® as a deterent along with a common minty/herby/stinky rotten egg deer spray for when plants get taller.

    Edible Pantries

    For my seasonal pantry, I like experimenting with different edible flowers, particularly for use in salads or as a main course garnish.  This year I'm adding fiddleneck flowers  (phacelia tanacetifolia).  It's noted to be a good pollinator-friendly plant and the (very attractive, IMO) flowers are supposedly edible (and deer resistant, but we'll see).

    Are hostas edible?

    I read somewhere a couple years ago that Hostas are edible. I have many - grow like weeds on the west coast... Does anyone have any knowledge or reference material to share? Thanks!

    Les Phelps...

    Money spent on developing vital skills is never money wasted! I, too, grow vegetables in a manner that is way more expensive than buying them in the store, but the knowledge I gain - mostly by screwing up constantly - is a very worthy investment.

    THE PUSHBACK | Oracle Films | The Day the World Stood Together

    THE PUSHBACK

    On March 20th 2021, people in over 40 countries across the world gathered in peaceful unison for a worldwide demonstration - to oppose disproportionate government measures threatening the very foundation of their rights and freedoms. This huge international effort was appallingly misrepresented and downright ignored by the mainstream media.

    Produced by Oracle Films, in collaboration with CoviLeaks and independent journalists in over 40 nations – this documentary is an authentic account of what really happened on March 20th, what protestors worldwide were standing against, and why the media went to such lengths to conceal the truth.

    ⁣We received no funding for this project. Since our PayPal was shut down at the behest of the BBC, we have been asked where people can donate to us. We are a self-funded collective of professional filmmakers with our own equipment, software and resources. We feel it's important to emphasize that we are not producing content like this for financial gain, but simply to inform.

    Putting in a plug

    Buss Ferver of perfect circle Farms is a very accomplished arborist especially where edible landscaping is concerned.

    bluestemfarms doesn’t have a bug problem. If you have enough fertility your plants will out grow the bugs?  the squash vine borer, which seasonal planting’s will partly out wit, along with a mix of squash and melons, is the greatest nuisance.

    have any tried spinosad for Colorado potato beetles?

    too busy to type, robie

    Ten years ago, Damon Vrabel called monetary reform the “civil rights issue of the 21st century”.

    Lost bitcoins

    My understanding is that approximately 3,000 to 5,000 mined bitcoins have been lost due to people forgetting, losing their keys, and or dying.  Will the system protect folks from losing their bitcoin?  Should miners replace lost bitcoins?

    Privacy Cryptos in a Time of Over - Surveillance

    Tom Luongo, a clear supporter of gold and cryptos, writes a piece focusing on the CB monopoly destroying effect of Bitcoin.

    It may be time to light three lanterns in the window because the central banks are coming both by land and by sea but nothing worth having was ever gained by not fighting for it.

    The issue that caught my eye most was discussion near the bottom of the page of the value of privacy in a world of over-surveillance.  He cites Pirate Chain (symbol ARRR)  [<--love it] and Monero (XMR), two crypto-coins whose blockchain hides the users identity.

    This is a political and ethical movement, not a "trade" aimed at making money.  It is an effort to build the world that we would like our children to inherit.

    But once Turkey made its announcement and the SEC rumor hit the markets what really saw a move was the ultimate privacy coin, Pirate Chain (ARRR). It doesn’t take a 200+ IQ to figure that one out. Pirate Chain has been quietly building momentum all year and exploded in a 10x move that made even Dogecoin (DOGE) look tame. Moreover, there seems to be no slowing it down, because this isn’t a trade, it’s a defensive move.

    Since ARRR doesn’t really trade on any major exchanges liquidity is non-existent and holders of it have no intention of letting go just because the central banks are coming. If the SEC is worried about money laundering with a fully transparent blockchain like bitcoin or ethereum, what will they do when the world wakes up to the complete anonymization of capital coins like ARRR and XMR are capable of delivering?

    Price of Pirate Chain pops IN THE LAST 3 WEEKS.  (see here for bigger pic) 

    With the central banks and The Davos Crowd making their moves on the entire crypto-space it validates what I’ve been saying about the futility of their actions trying to maintain their power and control. They are putting a premium on anonymity and privacy in a world increasingly under surveillance.

    I would love to know the secondary and tertiary layer developments in the BTC world (cue VTGothic) towards privacy on the Bitcoin network.
