Raised Bed Vegetable Garden

1 day ago by kindman | 1 comment »

Hi All: It has been 5 years since I built my raised bed vegetable garden. I used 2×12 rough cut pine and rolled on Boiled Linseed oil before construction. When I get approved for adding a “Project” I will post my construction method and will add some modifications I plan on doing in 2014 to keep the “cotton tail” varmints out. I can’t wait for WARMER and DRYER weather.

The Strawberry Massacre

6 days ago by Weedlover | 1 comment »

I wrote this last spring 2013.. Man, I love strawberries! I quickly found out … So do the chipmunks. I’ve always wanted a strawberry patch so Last year, I dug up the old flower beds and created this vegetable and strawberry garden in the back yard. We enjoy harvesting several types of lettuce, green beans and peas, carrots, peppers (given away – Agh!) and a variety of herbs all surrounded in marigolds. A neighbor friend gave me about 50 strawberry chutes a...

2014 project, flower beds #1: Starting with the bottom part

8 days ago by nate22 | 2 comments »

I am going to start making 2 flower beds in my yard. One will be 15’ x 20’ and the other one will be 10’ x 20’. One will have all mums in it of all different colors. The other one I’m not sure yet what I’m going to have in it. The flower beds are going to have 3 levels to them. I might only get to the first part this year. Two questions I do have is when I get ready to start them should I remove the grass from that spot or just leave it?...

Garden 2014 #1: Deciding where to plant everything in my garden.

8 days ago by nate22 | 2 comments »

It doesn’t seem like it is spring yet. It feels like I just put everything away in my shed from gardening from last year. But I’m glad winter is over specially after the one we just had here in northern Indiana. Now it’s time to start thinking of where to plant the things in my garden. I know what I want to plant at least. I have decided to plant green beans, watermelon, cherry and big tomatoes, more strawberry plants, zucchini, and maybe the small decorative pumpkins. ...

Project FIGS #1: April 6, 2014

11 days ago by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

the BackstoryIn 2011, I purchased a “Hardy Fig” at a local nursery, kept it on the deck for the summer and brought it inside for the winter. I kept it just in my hallway, treating it like any other house plant – not knowing that there were “fig strategies” that I should be following. Figs don’t mind some cold temperatures but not “Canada cold” so they need some special protection for winter months—- as well as the opportunity to go dorm...

In Memoriam

21 days ago by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

It is with great sadness (and shock) that I pass on the news of the passing of our dear friend daltxguy. I received the following message today, from his friend: I wanted to let you know that Steve Racz (aka daltxguy on this forum) has unfortunately passed away. I am a friend of his in Ottawa. I was unsure if anyone had contacted you yet. He was found dead in his bed by the Quebec provincial police, after his mother had been unable to contact him for some days. They suspect he died from...

Garden Journey 2014 #2: Time to relax?

38 days ago by justjoel | 5 comments »

So, spring is in the air! Actually, around here, in the high desert of Northern Nevada, it’s been blowing around for the past month – which isn’t necessarily a good thing, even if it extends our growing season this year. With our local change of climate these past years, and especially this year, it’s not only the possibility still of a killing spring freeze that worrys us, getting our fruit trees’ hopes & blooms up, then a major frost coming through and literally nipping the trees ...

Garden Journey 2014 #1: Farm Tours

38 days ago by justjoel | 6 comments »

In an effort to become more involved in the local farm-to-table ventures and adventures, I’ve toured a couple of local urban farms in the last month, something I should have done long before. Not that there’s any moss growing on my butt or anything, but these were obvious places for me to visit, so I’m glad I’ve finally stepped away from the weeds in my own garden to see how the pros grow it. Yesterday I visited Urban Roots, an urban farm which is largely dedicated to teaching kids whe...
