      Your wisdom is evident, but hope you consider wild gourd tea, as it does not kill bugs but rather stop them from eating your crops. always test on one type of plant to make sure of no problems. but I have in my years found nothing better as a bug repellent for plants

      Does anyone use Growbags (Combination of coco peat and/or husk chips) to grow Tomato’s? Growbags are 100% natural and environmentally sustainable, used widely in the industry due to the benefits of the product for Tomato growing…

      Help protect our environment, use environmentally friendly products.

      Those pumpkins look large enough for my needs. I don’t need a pumpkin bigger than a volkswagon. 🙂

      I believe she is wrong about the number of pumpkin plants in that bed resulting in smaller pumpkins. If you are going to plant that amount of pumpkins then what should be done is making sure the required nutrients are there now for that number of plants. Adding more compost, regular applications of compost tea, etc. I recommend people to always learn from various schools of thought and experiment for themselves.

      Another common mistake is pouring gasoline on the whole thing and lighting it on fire. I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me.

      garden area is also a great place to hide cash,
      wife and I grow massive garden, funny how locals beg for help, and I offer them food in my garden and they respond with can you bring it over. sad world we live in,
      every kid can play on the computer by the hour, but never ever grew a plant that produces food, nothing can go wrong with this world.

      This is a good video, helpful to me. I am just starting my own garden, mainly herbs and vegetables, and got some good advice from this video. I found this very useful tool online for my garden, called Weed Killer Cane, very practical and useful. Just thought I’d pass it on – weedcaneDOTcom
