So, the season is pretty much over. A few weeks and the veg. beds will be cleared of all but leaks and sprouts. The guy with the allotment plot next to mine dug in loads of seaweed last year and got amazing results. I have always just used manure and compost but will definitely get some seaweed this year. Anyone dig in or use anything different or weird? Also, general veg. growing thread. What went well this year? What didn't do so well? Grow anything unusual? Plans for next year?
>So, the season is pretty much over.

Where are you?

I'm in Toronto, Ontario, Canada - near the lake, so I'm probably around zone 7 while the rest of Toronto is around 6, and up in Markham, 5.

My English Lavender is still big and bushy, and even my Thai Lavender is so far fine, so long as I have it against the wall. There was an unusually cool period late August / early September where the nights dropped to almost 10C, and one of my tomatoes almost died, but then there was a heat wave where the day was approaching 40C and the nights was still 25C and it bounced back.

I put crushed egg shells in my garden, I really want to try blood meal or the shrimp thing but I'm worried it would attract (more) pests, I already have to deal with Crane Flies larval.

Next year I shall grow more Basil in the same pot as my tomatoes (cherry again (sweet millions) and maybe plum). I might try strawberries (but I'm worried about pests), maybe trail it from my pot of English Lavender.

I want to try either a pepper or cucumber, if I have the space. I know I want to grow Sunflowers. For my vegetable needs, I'll mostly be doing salad greens in pot. I'm growing more collard greens now, they can overwinter outside and they become kinda tree like, so more leaves in a more narrow space.

I'm in Ireland. I'm not a huge fan of sweet millions, very sweet but not much flavour other than the sweetness. I usually grow sungold and gardeners delight, both sweet cherry tomatoes but with better flavour.
I have found peppers to be disappointing to grow, hard to get them to ripen, but it might jut be down to Ireland's short summers. Cucumbers though are great, taste much better than shop bought varieties and produce more than you could eat. Be sure and get an all female f1 variety though. You could try cucamelon, they produce loads of bite size cucumber type fruits but need a trellis or netting to grow up, still needs less room than a cucumber.
Haven't heard of digging in shrimps, gonna google that.
I finally got an apartment with a balcony last year, and I brought Sweet Millions because it was the only Cherry Tomato at the local gardening centre, and I liked it because it gave me tomatoes late into NOVEMBER, whereas the other Maria something large tomato gave me a SINGLE tomato - that could be because I planted them in August, when I moved in.

Winter in Canada is so long, that Stars wrote a song called "The North" with the line, "So cold in this country, October to May", but it's more complicated then that, because of Indian Summer...and I think we get more Sunlight in North America - always hear people say that UK is always cloudy compared to NA. I mean, we do have deserts on our continent.

I like the taste of sweet bell peppers but they always seem so expensive, that's why I wanted to try growing them, I like cucumber OKAY as little bits in salad, but it's harder to cook with them. I guess I could trade them with my Aunt for more tomatoes! I don't think the bigger tomatoes can make it on my balcony because it's so windy.

What the heck, I want to eat sweet peppers, I get a lot of sunlight, wish me luck!

Or maybe I'll try both, I do have a 15L container, plus two big pots that are either 2 and a half gallon or 3 gallons (that I use for tomatoes right now), and another one in storage.

In the same way pit bulls are, yes.

Can I make my ball python cage bioactive with springtails and/or isopods or will they bother her?
Does anyone have any experience keeping crickets in the dark? I just bought a bigger cricket keeper and I can hear them jump in there very loudly. I was wondering if I could put them in a drawer and they would be fine?
Yes you can. The cleaning crew will not mess with your snake.


Yeah it doesn't seem to matter if crickets get natural light or not. Fair warning though, keeping crickets in an enclosed space with low airflow will cause it to smell like grim death every time you open it.

Both die and it would be very emparrasing for the whale.
Can a person stand in a blue whales mouth?
Depends, are we talking Danny DeVito or Andre the Giant? Either way, yes.
You could fit in their mouth but I imagine you'd end up choking the poor thing
>going scuba diving with whale sharks in Cancun this Christmas
Should I be terrified? I used to love whales when I was a kid, but consciously swimming with something much bigger than myself suddenly scares the shit out of me. Any little thing goes wrong and the fucker can swallow me or drown me with its body. But I really want to do it...

reform means that it has a combined belief system and specific theology.
Worshipping broad undefined gods like frei and tyr: tribal nordic paganism.
Writing a mythological lore and making a semi-rigid belief system, writing the edda, etc: reformed nordic religion
animism isn't a specific religion with a clear theology, so it isn't reformed, it's tribal and basic and you aren't a fucking animist fuck you, you just want to feel special.

I'm sorry op. He looks like a beautiful little guy. I just lost my golden of 12 years yesterday to hemangiosarcoma.

I'm praying for the best possible outcome for your dog. If he passes remember you gave him the best possible life and were a wonderful friend to them.
goodnight, sweet prince
>has pancreatitis and maybe pancreatic cancer

Euthanize if it comes up positive. Trust me, that shit is painful. First hand account of seeing people with that, generally too late for one to see it before it goes to hell and metastasizes.
wait wait
anon. im not trying to be all dudeweedlmao here, but there is a possibility that ingestible cannabis concoctions and/or concentrated cbd oil could help. if cannabis is still illegal where you live, cbd extracts can be obtained legally via the interweb in all 50 states. i think it is legal in most other parts of the world too, but dont quote me on that one. obviously cannabis consumables will have psychoactive effects, but cbd does not. i think cbd stuff would be the way to go, but if your dog likes to party, cannabis edibles couldl help too. its worth a shot, especially considering the complete lack of side effects
That's the plan, he's on IV rn under watch for 24 hours to see how it is.
