    How did all the farmers and gardeners here do? locally, middling year for corn farming; too much rain. picking soybeans in a few weeks. gardeners did poorly with corn and tomatoes, not too bad with melons and squash. How are things in your garden/farm/area?

    Where I am (eastern Midwest), the weather is schizophrenic, I think. 3 days ago, it was 70+ degrees, and it's snowing right now. I'm planning on starting my own garden plot this year. When should I start preparing the plants and the area, since the weather is being so unpredictable?

    I have the chance to swap out my 27 hp cub cadet 7245 4wd with front end loader for a Hinomoto 40 hp 4wd with front end loader. Both are 90s model tractors with under 1000 hrs. The Cub has been a pretty good tractor, but I have not been using it intensively. Does anyone have experience with...

    So it's getting to be that time again. We moved into our new house last June and dragged along our whole garden in plastic pots with reasonable success given the late start. Unfortunately the tomatoes and peppers were a disaster because we hit frost before we had many change to red. This year...

    I gardened this field a couple years ago, but over the last two years I let grass grow back in and mowed it every week. The last couple winters I planted both red clover and rye grass in the field as a potential amendment for tilling in at spring. However the last two years I was too busy...

    My wife and I are starting our garden at the house (zucchini, tomatoes, rhubarb, squashes, and berries for now) but the ants are killing some of the hardier, annual plants. Does anyone have any experience with using plants to deter insects? I have heard marigolds do, but am looking for...

    If you could make this, imagine how extremely useful it could be. Do you think it can be done? If so, how? Any thoughts on this are mightily appreciated
  13. Ladies Section
    Hi Ladies. I was wondering if any of you know much about these beasts. We bought a house with a huge clump of Sago in a very inconvenient area of the landscape. This weekend, I chopped the whole thing to the ground. I know that they are highly sought after for Southern landscapes-- so I was...

    Looking at companion planting for a healthier, less pest-prone garden (actually a bunch of Earth Boxes and other containers). However, this means I would grow things I am allergic to and/or detest. Is it worth my energy and time to use this as a strategy for a healthier and less pest-prone...
  15. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    This is only my second attempt at gardening anything so I am still really new to all of this. I saw a picture of one of these and wanted to try it. It was hard to find any instructions on how to build it online so I just went with the picture I saw and figured it out as I went. The one I built...

    I'm not "rich", but I am blessed to be in a position that I am preparing to buy some property, design and build my own "dream home". This will be the house I plan to remain in for the rest of my life (Now in my 30's). So, as work on the house design, I want to incorporate themes and features...

    Well here it goes ....lol the garden was neglected a bit this year did not spend as much time as I shouldve. I did not feed my plants food. The weeds took over and caused it to look crazy. My cabbage broccoli and brussel sprouts and spinach got chewed up by bugs. My beans had those beetles on...

    A few years ago I planted various berry bushes. Three Nanking bush cherries went in an out-of-the-way location. Two died, one is thriving but only produced 3 cherries so far. We have one old gooseberry bush and a young struggling one. Another additions was a beautiful red currant in a shady...
  20. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Im curious as to what others have to add and help me with, im by no means a farmer, far from it. But I was curious as to what things I could plant, obviously in decent soil, and have them grow with little to no help. I figure if weeds, flowers and other plants can grow on their own and rely on...
