  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I've been reading about seeding straight to the garden and am ready to put my seeds down tonight. I've been wanting to get out there a few weeks ago but haven't been able to find the time between rain showers to avoid the mud. I've already ordered my potato sets but they haven't arrived yet...
  2. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I tried several new types of greens from Baker Creek and one that I personally would NOT recommend wasting your money & time on is Borage. I was intrigued because the leaves were supposed to taste like cucumbers and I like cucumbers. First off the outside of the leaves have a very annoying...

    Spring is here! Happy, happy! So, what are you harvesting now and how are you storing it? Love to hear what everyone's busy with. :) Here on the Gulf Coast, I've dug my Louisiana multiplier onions (walking onions aren't ready yet). Hung some in an old peanut net bag and froze the rest...
  4. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    This is my second year of growing and using Purple Tree Collards cultivated from cuttings. Are there any other people out there growing Purple or Green Tree Collards as a part of their SHTF prep or garden? I have been juicing and cooking the leaves just like I do regular greens and collards. I...

  6. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I know it's silly but I'm so excited to be started on the garden. I started my early greens and potatoes indoors and our last frost isn't until the end of March. I had to work around my kale bed because even through 2 weeks of over a foot of snow and a week of teens at night and low 30's day...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The one best animal thread got me thinking.... What would be the ONE best crop to grow. ( Easiest to grow, disease/pest resistant, most calories, most uses, best storage, easy to harvest/process.) So far I would have to go with corn. I have grown it in my backyard in Phoenix and it did quite...
  8. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I have been very busy lately. Between prepping hunting areas(bushhogging overgrowth from the very wet year), and fishing, I've just now found some time to take down the Spring garden and start the Fall one. I remove all the old plants, except the 4 eggplants that are still producing. I then...
  9. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Some people like them, and some people loathe them. Me I love them!:D I plant them every fall. These plants get very big and the spaceing should eventually be about 18" after thinning. To harvest, no need to take the whole plant, just take the outer leaves which are the largest. They are very...
