    I have a vegetable garden next to the property fence. The rain water from slightly higher neighbor’s property?

    I have a vegetable garden next to the property fence. The rain water from slightly higher neighbor’s property comes to my vegetable garden. This water is contaminated with stools and urine of cat and dog. What is the potential risk of any disease transmission from a disease carrying/infected cat/dog’ fecal matter or urine entering the soil and the roots of vegetable grown in such environment?

      There is dog feces in my vegetable garden, can I still use the dirt to grow vegetables?

      Friday, March 18th, 2011

      I want to plant a garden in my backyard and I have recently found out that my neighbor has a routine of taking his dog into my backyard to do his duty and not cleaning it up! I know dog manure can carry parasites that can effect humans and I need to know if I can still use the dirt to grow vegetables. There isn’t much noticeable dog manure but I have seen some.

          Do you have some pointers on how to easily start an indoor "garden" for someone in a nursing home?

          Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

          My neighbor, who always worked outside in his yard, is now confined to a dementia ward in the local nursing home. He still responds to plants, trees, leaves etc. I did take him some bare branches in water off my corkscrew willow tree which have now leafed out and he likes that. What else can I do? I’m thinking of taking small pots full of potting soil and helping him start seeds, (coleus comes to mind as they could be transplanted and used as houseplants.) Do you have any other ideas? Obviously we are limited on space (there is a large windowsill in his room). Could we grow any vegetables? Thank you for any suggestions.

          Virgin vegetable gardening: First plant(s) to try: when and how?

          Friday, June 25th, 2010

          Last two times I tried gardening: 1st time my neighbor (at my previous home) laughed (kindly) and told me the tall pepper plants I was so proud of were weeds (and there were no pepper plants to be found. 2nd time: I bought the container of minature boxes with the plastic cover of plants to soon and by the time it was planting season they were useless.
          What should I try, how and when? Keep in mind every plant that has entered my house has left in a "coffin" within a year. Unfortunately I’m not big on details; if it doesn’t "speak" (like a cat) it doesn’t get what it needs. Know of any plants that can tell me what they need, how much and when?
