Great Video thanks for sharing! However, can't we just get some Illegal Aliens to do this for us and we can just supervise them?:D

Honestly, I find the question about illegal aliens so offensive. Your user name is RevWC. Do you really call yourself a man of the cloth? Is this a carry over from the racism that ran the south for more than a century?

Anyone else find this offensive or is it just me? If it is, I will delete myself as a member here.

No but I find using the worn out race card and protecting criminals very offensive.Also defending invaders of your nation is seditious at the least.

You brought it up and its not my 'opinion' it's the Politicle incorrect facts.

If you have sandy soil you can condition it with compost,peat moss and other soil conditioners.

Sort of funny when a person ask if another person is racist and at the same time posting a racist view.

I dont find it offensive -- I thought it was sarcasm. Why pay illegals to do something you can do yourself for cheaper? :dunno:

Back on topic: I love my victory garden. Being self-sufficient is the American way! I hope more and more folks start growing gardens -- they will certainly respect the folks who grow it for a living much much more.

I seem to remember many things preceded by the word 'victory' being discussed on the History channel. Kinda like we started calling French fries, freedom fries. I believe it was a catchy way to get people to garden so that food was not so expensive and hard to come by during the war(s).

I love the part where the narrator says "follow these tips, choose your company, and youll find that digging can be good fun"... reminds me of being a kid and digging post holes to fence the pasture... for fun. :2thumb:

Some don't have such good memories of gardens.Hubby said he could'nt see the ends of the rows of beans and okra they had to pick.

His daddy would push plow behind mule and if the rows were'nt perfectly straight he'd get beat with cane poles byhis daddy.

Thank goodness times are'nt that hard anymore and we can learn from them.

learned from experience that something that was "fun" because it was something I wanted to do to "help out" ceased to be so once I got paid for it... then it became a "job", and something that HAD to be done :lolsmash:

Our ground is sand.....so much so that I'm teased about where I'm hiding the lake. We grow awesome gardens here, I think cuz the sand holds the heat....my plants usually come up first and produce heavy. Doesn't hurt a bit that we also say a prayer over the garden!! Sand is great garden soil.:congrat:
