Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

My Winter Garden - Part Eight - New Broads in Town


Heads up! There's some new, beautiful young broads in town. I purchased organic broadbeans from Eden Seeds, my favourite supplier.

New Broads on the Block 1:

They took ages to poke their heads up. Two weeks in fact, but that is quite normal. There's 90 - 120 days between sowing and picking.

New Broads on the Block 2:

One secret of broadbeans is to not water them at all from the day of planting until two distinct leaves are visible above the ground, else there is a chance of rotting.

New Broads on the Block 3:

I planted 70 beans in various places in the garden. Some were devoured by slugs, some are being eaten as of today, some seem fine. I just read that sprinkling eggshells or cinnamon around the plants sends slugs running. Or sliding.
