and other stuff
I saw this discussion on another blog recently, and was amazed that apparently, some diggers have indeed been able to grow veggies, and fruit using seeds from an outhouse layer. I have never tried it, and the seed layers in my area consist almost entirely of blackberry seeds, and not tomato, or others. I have of course dug tons of peach pits, but never thought of them as being viable. This is kind of like Jurassic Park, where DNA from pre historic mosquitos was used to create dinosaurs. I think it would be super cool to have a tomato slice on my burger from one of my digs! Andrew, are those 'maters on the table from a layer? Dale M.
Nope, not my tomatoes ! I have some seeds in my garage that I'm going to try germinating next week, I'll keep you posted.
dumped some soil out of a bucket that was full of dirt and a few old pieces of glass from an outhouse hole into my backyard a few years ago and later up come a couple a cucumber plants, watered em, and the cukes were ok.....Andy
That is Interesting, Right Out of an Outhouse Pit. Soooooo would one say the Farmer has a Green or a Brown Thumb?
Green or brown thumb?Your killin' me Dr. BarnesA day later I'm still laughingrs
I am more concerned about the original post, and the "wet hole" vs. "dry hole" debate. I ASSume he refers to outhouse holes? Dale M.
Last year I thru a hole bunch of privy dirt with seeds into one part of my garden and hundreds of 100+ year old tomato plants grew from them, I then devided them and spaced them out and had many wonderful large privy tomatoes. The dirt must be from a dry privy, the seeds that get wet then dry will rot over time.Tom S.
if the outhouse hole is wet, better stop, it is to new, unless ya has a brown thumb..Har.....Andy
