    Hello everyone, It's that time of year, and I've been busy in my garden. I don't have pics just yet, largely because I don't want to bore you by showing you stuff that you've already seen. I will begin with a summary of what's going on however. My first seedlings went into the ground this...
  2. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hello again, It's still 'way too early to do anything outdoors. My garden is under three feet of snow and the temperatures are still sub-zero. Sorry but even the cold-tolerant stuff won't like that! What I can do however, is get the seedling table ready. It'll be March 1 in a few short weeks...

    Hey everyone! I got my wife a few books on container gardening for Christmas last year. We're in an apartment so we thought it would be a good idea to give this a shot. We pre-mixed our own dirt with a recipe we found in one of the books and our mutant vegtables are growing! We used little...

  15. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hello all, I grew up around my grandparents who gardened every year until their passing a few years ago but never took an interest until recently. While at Sams club I found a 3'x7' raised bed garden kit and decided to give it a try. I have always been interested in preserving the past by...

    We live in a suburban area on a very small piece of land - 40' x 100' and that includes the house, double garage and driveway. Suffice it to say, there is not a lot of room to garden.
