Where do you buy fertilizer locally? We have several acres that we are planting in oats this weekend and our soil needs a bit of Nitrogen added.  This would be a bulk buy.  Also open to other suggestions.

Chase Hardware had the canner, jars, lifters- everything I needed. Thank you so much- I had no idea they were even there, as N 4th is out of my "zone."  It is a wonderful old fashined hardware store &  I will go back again.

Now to get all the beans picked...!

Chase Hardware on 4th St. just north of Osuna is where mine came from.  Happy canning!

I'd like to buy a pressure canner locally. Soon. Like tomorrow. The beans and cucumbers exploded this year & I am without equipment. Anyone seen the 16 or 23 quart Presto models or equivalent in stock at a local store? I have been striking out looking for one.

Every morning I go out and look for the eggs and remove at least 5 almost every day. They usually are on the undersides of young tender leaves, but I have seen them on the stems. They are bright neon green, pinhead size. The nighthawk moth lays egg at night. The egg hatches very quickly and the worm gets large very quickly, within days. They love the nightshade family, and eggplants are in that family too. Also look at your leaves for little black specks (their feces) Tiny specs, small baby worm, large specs, big worm. Dust off the poop so you can keep your eye out on new worms that may have hatched that you didn't catch at the egg stage. This is easy pest management for a couple of plants, but more than that, it gets to be high maintenance.

I went out this morning to my small garden in my back yard that is basically enclosed and if I was still in Virginia I would say that a deer had stripped the top leaves off of my tomato vines leaving spiky stalks.  This happened overnight.  What is there in Nob Hill that would/could do such a thing?  The only animal life I've seen are three neighborly cats, some finches and an occasional roadrunner.

Has anyone tried growing wheat here in Albuquerque?  I'd like to give it a go but would like any input before I get started.  thanks!
