Maybe it's just me, but it seems that our seasons have rotated forward about a month over the last couple of decades. Years back, English peas were always planted the first week of February, but I doubt you could get a spade in the ground that early now. I started planting in mid-April, but except...
Everything you need to know about the importance of rotation in the garden.
Yeah, I know it's early, but if you want any scarce seeds you'd best be thinking about it.
I'm putting the lasagna garden back. Now that Mom's not here I'm going to grow things that Sharon and I like. I've devoted 3/4's of the garden to things Mom said she like but would not eat, but that's...

I have three itty bitty baby cantaloupes in the garden. They were started from seeds from a store bought cantaloupe last year. Did this once before, years ago, accidently, and grew a little, wonderfully delicious cantaloupe.
Hope the rabbits don't get them.
I just discovered this magazine and I am in love!!! Its just great!! So femine yet hard working. I just love it!
I have a line of canteloupes in tubs, against a fence. One was a volunteer that popped up in a container before I planted the others. I figured the raccoons that get in the compost scattered some seeds around and I got lucky. So I took it to the garden and it's been growing well, way ahead of the...
I just built a compost bin about a month ago and its been working out great. I was just wondering how often you should turn the compost over in its bin. I hope that makes sense.
Here's a page Thor made for our tobacco seedlings. Only the little ones, he didn't put in pics of the BIG ones. If I can drag him outside in the heat, I can get some pics of them. They look kinda like those pods from the old Invasion of the Body...
From another website:
Wait... back up.
Dryer Lint. Really?
That's a new one on me. Wouldn't it have soap in it? I mean that's why I don't use the run-off from the washing machine to water my fruit baring or edible plants.
Does anyone garden this way? Sounds really interesting. Im gonna try it this year. I havent planted any seeds yet, but the next full moon is May 9th so Im going to plant then, I never have luck with seeds so we'll see!! I do have seeds going inside, in a lil greenhouse and some spinach outside, but...
Getting the gardens ready for next spring. Anyone ever hear of Ruth Stout, the mulch garden guru? I'm developing my own style. Combined with "Gaias Garden" an influencing book about perma-culture.
That and crap.:) Also Buffulo Bird Woman. It's starting to come together after three years.
Grow your greens. Cool-weather veggies vary in hardiness. Among the most tender of the lot, lettuce grows best at 50 to 60 degrees F; growth slows as temperatures drop. Keep it in a cold frame; when the temperature falls below 30 degrees, lettuce is in trouble. The ideal time to plant fall crops is...
This is the place to show off the Harvest. Somebody else start. Ready-Set-Go...:D
One of the main reasons I garden is to grow things that I can't get otherwise - the bitter melons I've mentioned here, Moon & Stars watermelons, yardlong beans, etc. The previous two seasons I've also grown local favorites - half-runner beans, yellow crookneck squash, zucchini and the like. And,...
