The biggest marker comes the next year when you grow from seed and they don't flower, or flower very little.

with a dog you will not loose anything in your garden to varments or deer or at least it seems that way out my way, the only downside is that you won't see as much wild life around your property, which is the only reason i can think of that those without dogs out here dont have them.
I want to know more about doing my own compost; how long do seeds last; and how to make my soil fertile - despite those darn rocks!

I let the rain wet it over the winter months, and in the summer months, I wet it, completely cover it with a tarp (so that it will get hotter, killing all bacteria and causing the composting materials to break down faster). Since it's covered, you will get some greenhouse effect (your water will stay), but you will need to wet it every few weeks while it's covered.
Take a look at the press release and Executive Summary on global cooling.
We need to find ways of growing food in new climatic conditions!
What's a root cellar?

Yes, bamboo is terribly invasive, but if you grow it in huge pots in your yard (and are very careful to keep the cuttings off it in a plastic box or something until they fully die...do this before putting the clippings in your mulch bin)....then you can grow your own bamboo in no time and replace a myriad of things you are spending money for at the hardware store....plus, did you see the teepee in the article I linked above????? It's awesome! Grow grapes, provide a canopy for your beans that you can pick as you walk under it, or entertain your kids....
My point is.....give bamboo some real consideration. It dies back in winter here in SC...and the poles turn brown (tho some of us are in shock that it hasn't died back in certain places and is still green and lush here). If you live up north, just bring the pot into your garage and give it minimal water every so often....
I am on a bamboo kick right now and wanting to get the word out about it...its free, its useful and.....it can be contained successfully.

But it made great bean poles and fishing poles. I'd love to have some now, to use as a superstructure for a Quonset hut style green house.
Excellent information for feeding your garden almost for free.
