    I messed up – do I need to move my vegetable garden?

    Friday, April 29th, 2011

    I am in Memphis, Zone 7. I planted a "Square Foot Garden" (raised bed garden) full of vegetables at my new home. Bell peppers, peas, beans, tomatoes, watermelon, squash, herbs, etc. I thought the spot I chose was full sun. Not sure how I messed this up… It appears my beds are getting only about 3 hours of sun a day, from noon to 3:00. Do I need to move the beds? It won’t be easy, but it is possible before the plants get too big. To think I dug up all that grass underneath them. Sigh. Thank you!

      Indoor vegetable garden?

      Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

      Thanks to anyone willing to take the time to answer. I do not have a lot of gardening experience, so please be kind.

      I am starting my 2nd attempt at an outdoor garden, but thought it would be nice to have some veggies grow in my house… perhaps even after the outdoor season ends.

      1.) What kind of vegetables can be grown indoors?

      2.) How deep of soil should I have to grow veggies?

      3.) Do I need fancy gardening lights, or is sunlight through the window enough?

      4.) If I do need fancy lights, would the cost of the lights and the electricity come out to a lot more than buying veggies from the store?

      5.) How much light do plants need in a day.

      6.) If I keep them in my porch instead of in a heated room, could they die when it is cold?
      Seeds I have so far: bell peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, onions, scallions, broccoli, spinach, yellow squash, carrots, cucumber, brussels sprouts, banana peppers…

      Thanks for answering any of these you may know.

      Can anyone give me a web site that offers complete tips on vegetable gardening?

      Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

      I’m in Texas close to Dallas and am starting a garden this year. I’m planting tomatoes , squash , bell peppers , cucumbers ,okra , and herbs.. The past few years I have had no luck with tomatoes at all and I’ve tried everything. I did the topsy turvy thing last year and my plants got water loged and died. Any tips for me would be great, And also does anyone know anything about having a raised garden?
