Re: “Props and Measures

Sorry: Initially spelled it Thaddeus. Computer let me correct that spelling, but won't let me delete the comment on it. Muphry's law again.

Re: “Props and Measures

And I bet I mean Thadeus. Muphry's law. I'm available on the cheap as a part-time proofreader.

Re: “Props and Measures

Thadeus Greenson: on p 13, column 4, I bet you mean provisions for appellation designations, not Appalachian designations.

Re: “Not Your Grandma's Marigolds

UC Davis IPM says this:

Nematode-suppressive Plants

Certain marigolds, Tagetes species, suppress root knot and lesion nematodes. French marigolds (varieties include Nemagold, Petite Blanc, Queen Sophia, and Tangerine) are most effective. Avoid signet marigolds, T. signata or tenuifolia, because nematodes will feed and reproduce on these. Marigolds don’t work well against the northern root knot nematode, Meloidogyne hapla, a species common in areas with cool winters. The effect of marigolds is greatest when you grow them as a solid planting for an entire season. When grown along with annual vegetables or beneath trees or vines (intercropping), nematode control usually isn’t very good. To prevent marigold seed from getting in the soil, cut or mow the plants before the flowers open. As with other cultural control methods, nematode populations rapidly will increase as soon as you grow susceptible crops again.

Re: “TL;DR: Five Things You Need to Know from This Week's Cover Story

Thing is, if you audited all the judges in the county - all the judges in the state, for that matter - probably half of them would be found to be in violation. A higher percentage in counties in which judges have heavier caseloads. My guess is that a couple of lawyers who had cases before these two judges that weren't decided within the 90-day period complained to the State Bar, causing these two to be checked.

Re: “Medicinal Flowers

This year I planted Anaphalis Margaritacea, a.k.a. Pearly Everlasting. Somebody gave me a little plant in the fall, and it's spreading underground. I sent for seeds online but will wait until it's a little warmer to plant them. Tea made from it significantly reduces the symptoms of colds - and if I drink it as soon as I can tell I'm getting a cold, the cold doesn't happen. I'm not an herbalist, either, nor even a health nut. In fact, Pearly Everlasting is the only wild herb I believe in...
