what to do in the garden for december, c2bs2(colonoscopy)

in this area can plant asparagus
planted bed 3 years ago and had first crop of asparagus
sure was good

feed any cool season vegetables regularly so they will
grow well     they  need that extra boost of energy

keep bare ground in beds well mulched to keep weed growth

it is a good time to prepare new beds
do raised beds here    get good garden soil from a
local nursery that has organic compost fertilizer etc
already added then cover with a layer of mulch for the
winter or overgrow it with a green cover crop such as
winter rye or vetch,

leaves-dont let them leave your property
use them as mulch around plants, mow them and leave
them in the grass as long as the leaves arent too thick,
or put them in the compost pile or give them to me

if you have fruit trees mulch with compost around the base
of the tree      dont leave the mulch or compost up
against the tree trunk

mulch around trees and shrubs especially newly planted ones
this protects the roots from the cold and helps keep moisture
in the soil        it also will break down into the soil eventually

c2bs2 stands for chair to black snake #2 ie a colonoscopy

this will be my second one
met with the doctor yesterday to discuss having this done
he  did my last one so there was nothing new to discuss
its been ten years since my last one so it is time for my 2nd one

the day before you get on a liquid diet all day
then in the evening you take the bad stuff-the dynamite
stuff that cleans you out good
guess if colon cleansing works to get rid of toxins ill find out
after this
this time opted not to take the bad castor oil tasting gallon
of stuff that you have to drink
instead will be taking some pills then drinking a bottle
of a green explosive liquid that finishes me off for the night

was told to stay within eyesight of a bathroom or outhouse for
the rest of the evening

will blog more about this experience later but wont go into details

if everyone followed the american cancer guidelines for
screening for colon cancer at age 50 the number of deaths from
colon cancer would be cut in half

go to the american cancer website  www.cancer.org and
type in 'colon cancer screenings' to read about their

they will vary according to your history or family history but
every one needs a colon exam at 50 no matter what the history
 is is
