MS: Growing Fruit Trees from Seeds

Since I frequently complain about having no garden, I suppose my posting this requires a bit of backstory. It should be known that I am sentimental about the strangest things, in this case, NSR going and buying me pears when I was feeling really ill. I felt a strange urge to remember this gesture, so I looked up how to take the seeds and grow them into trees. Since I know there are people who read my blog who have an interest in self sufficiency, I decided I would pass it on.

It’s a bit more complicated than you might expect, but not too difficult. Personally I’m planning to gather seeds throughout the year and plant them in planters in the fall. I’m curious to know what hybrids I’ll end up with.



WH: For the Love of Blueberries

I have so little impulse control when it comes to fresh berries. I could never do one of the U-pick places, unless they charge me for at least an extra pound to account for all the ones I ate while picking.

Maybe I need one of these classes.

Edit: Oh, and don’t think I’m just posting this for laughs either. Having a working knowledge of Monty Python and a box of Pocky on me at all times got me more attention from guys than anything else I ever did.
