Michael Adler Tim McCarthy is a local artist. EPP hired him to design and print T-shirts for us. Unfortunately, his wife experienced a medical catastrophe that isSee More still ongoing, they lost their house, and the printing machine is in storage. Tim is selling his original art works to raise money. He can often be found at the Downtown farmer's market. If anyone is interested or wants to help, I thought I'd post this. Here are some websites wit his work. http://www.natureart.biz/index.htmlSee Less24.07.2014 at 04:02 am

I still wear (constantly) the many shirts I purchased from him well over 10 years ago. Someone was visiting my son the other day. When I got out of my car, the first thing she said was "Oh, that's one of Tim's shirts!" I have 3 of his prints on my walls, as well. He does a beautiful job and everyone should own some Tim McCarthy originals!!!!24.07.2014 at 07:22 am
Michael Adler I might get a load of pine bark Tuesday afternoon, and maybe some coffee grounds too. We're out of both and need them to mix soil. Anyone want to help?22.07.2014 at 01:08 am
Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Joni Ellis could use some volunteers this Saturday 830 - 1130 am, to help me manage the volunteers from UF. Could you explain more on what and why weSee More will be moving garden beds to the school and working on the loquats at the front road? It would be nice to have a couple people help me give guidance as to what needs to be done. I thought that was going to be you until you decided to go to the mushroom workshop. I have 14 volunteers from UF, I could use some help.See Less16.07.2014 at 10:34 pm
Michael Adler what time?16.07.2014 at 11:44 pmJoni Ellis Oh yeah, 8:30 am to 11:30 am17.07.2014 at 07:35 amview 6 more commentsBrian MonkeySoul Stanton Maybe make an event?17.07.2014 at 10:02 amMichael Adler Do you have enough tools for everyone?17.07.2014 at 11:14 amMichael Adler How did it go?20.07.2014 at 03:27 amJoni Ellis It went well, we got lots pulled out of there and I paid John Colburn to spray garlon on the stumps. There is more to do, but we have a great start on this. We need to keep up the work out there and get it ready to plant in October.20.07.2014 at 08:06 amBrian MonkeySoul Stanton Any other volunteers show and how many students? Good job20.07.2014 at 11:02 amJoni Ellis We had 10 students and a woman named Lisa Mac from EPP. Will and my neighbor Paul manned the chainsaws and the students put it on the trailer and we dumped it down the road where they are taking trees out anyway.

We got a lot done. There is more to be done to finish up and get new trees in. But this made a great start, now we can actually get into the area.

John Colburn came and sprayed herbicide on the stumps and sprouting vegetation like cherry laurel and paper mulberry. So let's get some EPP volunteers down there soon to finish this up. We can put some trees in before the end of august. Give them a head start on growing before they go dormant for the winter.

Michael Adler No Volunteer Day Sunday

Hi everyone.

We have lots to do, but we will probably not be doing any of it this Sunday, unless someone else wants to head
See More things up. I'm going to be at the mushroom workshop. I can show someone how to prepare air layers. We need to do that to the grapes and the Chickasaw plum. It's pretty easy, but time consuming.

Michael


P.S. Here is a report from last week:

Last Wednesday was our monthly plant sale. Chris Neilubowicz helped load the trailer. I managed to recruit a volunteer at the market to help pull the trailer in. I set up the booth. Aunt Maggie came and I could finally go move my car. Brian and Gabriela came toward the end and helped. They helped pack up and Gabriela helped me put the unsold plants back.

On Sunday, I was joined today by Zot and new volunteer Paul. We worked in the Siembra garden. I sprayed the callaloo while Zot pulled crabgrass. When paul arrived, he also worked on pulling crabgrass while I hauled loads of mulch, and he also spread mulch. Eventually I decided I'd hauled all the mulch I could that day, and Paul had pulled all the weeds he could, so we switched. Eventually everyone had done everything. Paul had to go and Zot helped me finish up putting things away and applying some fertilizer to some plants. Zot also brought figs to share, and we all took home lamb's quarters.See Less

Pindo Palm, Wine Palm, Jelly Palm (Butia capitata)


The Pindo Palm (Butia capitata a.k.a. Wine or Jelly Palm) is propagated from seed and generally reaches 12-15 feet in height.

Grown in full sun to partial shade, this perennial produces bright magenta flowers in the late spring and early summer.
It is quite cold-hardy and can handle temperatures in the teens with no sign of damage. It is also drought-resistant and resilient if relocated. Pindo palms thrive in a variety of soils, including alkaline, and is moderately salt-tolerant, though its roots and lower trunk can rot in soil which is kept too moist. Growth of this palm is slow; it may take many months to germinate. Though palm leaf skeletonizer, scale, and micronutrient deficiencies (appearing in soil with a high pH) present occasional challenges to the Pindo palm, these are not typically serious.

The plant’s date-sized fruit has a citrus-mango-coconut flavor, and makes great jams and jellies. The juice of the fruit can also be added to smoothies and tropical wines and liqueurs. Seeds can be roasted to make a coffee-flavored beverage.
