Will a vegetable garden increase my homes value?

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

We’re replacing our decks railing, so I thought it would be nice to use it as a fence around some raised vegetable garden beds. We’re planning on selling the house in 5 years or so, would this be appealing to buyers? A nice vegetable garden? Thanks!

    How can I correct my over-fertilized vegetable garden?

    Saturday, March 24th, 2012

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my first question regarding putting too much organic fertilizer on my vegetable garden before the seeds germinated.
    Now what can I do? Are the seeds/soil beyond repair? Thanks.

      Why would tomatoes and lettuce do poorly in a vegetable garden in a city while peas and beans do well?

      Saturday, February 18th, 2012

      A vegetable garden is planted in a vacant lot in a city. Peas and beans do well, but tomatoes and lettuce do poorly. What is the likely problem? How could it be corrected?

        My mom planted a vegetable garden over our recently buried dead cat. Is it gross to eat the vegatables?

        Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

        Our cat of twenty years died 7 months ago. We buried her approx 2 feet under ground in a cardboard shoe box. My mother planted a vegetable garden (squash, eggplant etc.) 14" away from the grave site. My mom has been serving my brother and I the vegetables every night. Is it gross or wrong to eat them?

          Vegetable Garden?

          Saturday, January 28th, 2012

          So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.
          🙂
          I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

          My issue is this:
          If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

          Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli (could I?), but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

          I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.

                  What type of vegetable is growing in my garden?

                  Monday, November 21st, 2011

                  I have a small vegetable garden and planted several types of vegetables however there is a single plant growing (at this point about 14" high), that is unlike any other. I assume it was a random seed that snuck in with a batch of organic heirloom tomatoes since this is where it has sprouted however it is not the same leaf and it is producing beautiful, tiny white flowers with a center of deep purple and yellow anthers. Any ideas???
