  3. 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...
  4. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I am building a small green house. I thought I would just share my progress as I get it together and useable. I had hoped this vinyl I found at Wal-Mart would work for the covering, but decided against it. I now plan to use a heavy grade construction grade plastic for now. We will see how it...
  5. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I see a lot of discussion on the forum about how to start a garden. Do I double dig the soil with a spade, maybe a fork, purchase a tiller, have the neighbor plow the plot? What do I add for amendments? Where do I start? So many questions? If you don't have a plot to start a garden, then...

I picked up a Burpee Self Watering...

  12. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I thought that I'd start a new thread about gardening in the news. It seems lately I am seeing more articles about food gardening than ever before, obviously due to the renewed interest in food gardening due to the economic troubles. Here's a first post...
