I want to start a vegetable garden at home but don't know how…?

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

I live in an urbanized area so I have a very limited space for backyard gardening. I want to have an access to vegetables that are safe and nutritious, meaning 100% free from chemicals.

What can I do? What vegetables can I start growing?

Useful links will be appreciated. Thanks! 🙂

    Bugs are eating my vegetable garden?

    Thursday, January 27th, 2011

    I am new at gardening, this is only my second year. Last year a flood destroyed the whole yard in mid july, in the begining of this season I was fighting with the groundhogs and bunnies and now the bugs! They are eating all of my chinese cabbage and lettuce. What can I do? I don’t want to use chemicals on my food but does anything else actually work? I have a good garden book that has some homemade recipes but these didn’t seem to have much effect. Any sugestions would be very appreciated! Thanks

      What are some natural ways to keep deer out of a vegetable garden?

      Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

      HELP! We have a bunch of deer that have been hanging around our yard this past winter and now that it is planting season, they need to be evicted! What are some "natural" ways to get rid of them so they don’t eat the garden? We won’t shoot them, so don’t throw that one at me! I also don’t want to spray chemicals on my vegetables. That is the biggest reason we are growing them ourselves. A fence is also not a practical solution. Thanks for your help!

        I have several small vegetable gardens around the yard. There are a number of cats in the neighborhood who dig holes and do their business. I am looking for an easy and cheap way to keep the cats out of the garden, without using chemicals or injuring the cats. What works for this?
