What we’re planting in April

Here’s our list of April plantings April Bean, bush Bean, lima Bean, edible soy beet Cantaloupe Chard Corn, sweet Cucumber Eggplant leaf lettuce Muskmelon Pepper plants Potato, Irish Pumpkin Radish Summer squash Tomato plant Watermelon There is of course always a risk of frost until the last frost date of April 15 in this area.  There is always a risk after that too, but it decreases significantly.  By mid may there’s almost no chance of frost.  So if you plant warm weather plants be ready to protect them on a cold night.  This year I’m betting on no more frosts,…

Ancient Teeth

I read an interesting article this evening about archaeologists studying ancient teeth and comparing them to modern teeth.  This is of extra interest to me because I’ve always had problems with my teeth.  I had cavities galore as a kid and still get cavities as an adult.. According to this study, ancient teeth used to have significantly more bacteria growing on them.  Not all bacteria causes cavities, only a few of the strains that grow in our mouth.  Our mouth is like a giant battlefield where bacteria fight it out to the death.  They compete with each other and this…
