Zephyranthes grandiflora, PINK RAIN LILY, 1825  With grass-like foliage and rosy pink flowers on 6-10 inch stems, mostly in early summer, it was brought to the US from Central America in 1825. If you’re north of zone 8, try some in a pot, once a common sight on porches. Simply set the pot in the basement and leave it dry all winter.

That black loam found in the bottom of our homemade silo's actually a stable, soil-like product called humus.  It formed as the result of the long term interreaction of bacteria, fungi, and organic matter (yard waste) producing carbon dioxide, heat, water and compost.

Microbiomes are ecosystems of one-celled organisms, such as bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa, algae, and plankton, as well as viruses. Over billions of years, they created our oxygen-rich atmosphere and fashioned the rich loam of our soils, and they continue to make life on Earth possible today. The 100 trillion microbes in the human gut - which vastly outnumber the "human" cells in our bodies - are critical to our health and development.
