We are vegetarian, so we eat a lot of vegetables - the rest I give away to family, friends and the food pantry.

For pests and weeds: I use hay for weed control, buckwheat as cover crop, and marigolds planted in between plants.
I also try and rotate crops to minimize issues.

I follow a very heavy plant-based diet personally. I would love to swap recipes. Smile

I haven't had luck relocating moss either. I ended up buying some at the local nursery. I water it often and hope it takes. I know the moss I planted under a bench totally died, but the rest seemed to take.

It'll take me a bit to dig up the pics. A day or two...

I had some very nasty damage this winter - trees here are not used to heavy snow. My redbud lost almost half the bark on the trunk as it split almost all the way down - not sure if it will recover. And my purple Locust is even worse - half the trunk is missing. I only left it standing like this because Locusts often have limbs broken off by the wind and heal super fast. This may be too much for it to take though, not sure it's able to pass the liquids up to the top. It was so freaking gorgeous though that I am clinging to straws. I lost a huge ancient oak out in the pasture and several other trees out there.

Damage to the shrubs is not out yet - we had unusual frost too. Not a fun winter for me, and spring may yet bring some major disappointments.

Your yard is lovely...as are you!

I am jealous...on both counts.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I hope your trees make it, Dom. The extremes in weather aren't good Sad
