How do I prepare land for a vegetable garden?

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

There is a 12 by 6 lot on the side of my house that I want to turn into a vegetable garden. My parents have agreed to let me do it, but in the past, they’ve used tons of weed killers and its covered by rocks. I’ve read a tons of different stuff online, and I’m not sure which to believe. Any advice is appreciated.

    I think introducing kids to vegetable gardening at the Boys and Girls clubs might be interesting, don't you?

    Where else are some of these kids going to learn how to sustain themselves later on.Bet most of these kids parents don’t garden. I wish I had learned when I was young, but I’m learning now!

      Parents are selling their house but refuse to make it look attractive?

      Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

      My parents have just put the house on the market. I’ve been spending at least 5 hours a day slaving in the garden de-weeding, cutting back the forest of trees and foliage and cleaning and de-cluttering the house.

      Now, they are really angry at me because I mentioned that the paint on the windows outside is terrible and the wallpaper inside is falling down in some places. I don’t know whether I’m just being paranoid, but I think especcially in the hallway where people first enter it is really important that the decor is good. It wouldnt be that expensive to strip and paint the hall and paint the windows frames outside but my parents get really angry at me even suggesting it. My mum also refuses to move any furniture round to make the rooms look spacious because she doesn’t want to be uncomfortable.

      It’s really annoying me, because I know with only a tiny bit of effort the house could look great and fresh. But my parents just can’t seem to be bothered. My mum sees it as some huge stressful mission, when to me it’s not. I am perfectly happy to do all of it myself.

      Maybe if it doesn’t sell quickly they will think about it. I hope it does!!! Do you think it matters if the house looks a bit shabby? The house is generally tidy and clutter free but looking really tired.
      The problem is they do REALLY want to sell quickly…man I wish they could go away and I secretly do it. It’s not possible though lol

        Need help planning my Las Vegas wedding/Super Mario Reception?

        Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

        My wedding colors are ivory and navy blue.
        My fiance and I are going (May 1st 2011) to Las Vegas to get married at the Lakeside Garden. We’re having our ceremony there and going to dinner at Harrah’s afterwards with family.
        We’re going to come back home and have a filipino (I am filipino) lunch reception at my parents house, their backyard (they have a pool, nice tiki decorated deck and it’s fenced) with a SuperMario wedding cake.

        I was thinking of giving magnets as our favors, maybe scratch off lottery tickets and Vegas lollipops as our favors. I want to make my own menu but I’m not making a seating chart. I am going to have blue heart shaped balloons as decor and bubbles for the guest… is there anything else I can do to make it more of a themed kind of wedding? Just any advice to help me with ideas is appreciated!

        Thank you

          Can't live with parents anymore but there are more important matters at hand?

          Monday, January 24th, 2011

          So ever since I can remember I’ve wanted to move out. I currently have a full scholarship at a top 50 university and I am trying to get into med school (biochem major). I work 20 hours a week in a pharmacy and average 0 a month. I am saving up for a summer class worth 00. I commute using my fathers car. With my left over scholarship money I pay my insurance (00) and break even. My mom doesn’t clean the house. I’ve never seen her with a broom in her hand let alone a vacume cleaner. My father retired and all he does is garden. It seems we have more decor than stuff getting done around here. I do it ALL including pipes, drains, laundry, dishes. My mom is a realtor and she never works, she always drops her clients. They are under-appreciative of me and when I get angry she wants to send me to a psychiatrist. My dad won’t let me take a year off between college and medschool. I think this is my best chance of getting in because the GPA goes up senior year. My boyfriend is on my side about everything (duh). My parents are really in my way. They always need me to do more and more and more but my plate is full. Plus my mom is very needy emotionally. She always wants to talk to me but I can’t I have HW or I just want to sleep and she spends money like crazy. It is like the roles of mother and daughter are switched. I am too young to be doing this. I really need an out. What I am asking from the readers is what order to do everything in and HOW.

            Please tell me he's not gay?

            Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

            Long time friend of mine. Long ago we told eachother we were attracted to eachother. Never connected physically. Drifted apart. Maintained email for years. To my knowledge and from what he has told me he’s never had a girlfriend. He’s 36. This is what I know about him:
            Construction worker
            Work aholic
            Youngest male in family
            Loves his parents, eats with them once a week.
            Owns home, both home and garden are meticulous
            Home decor is leather sofas, glass tables, METICULOUS
            I’ve been alone with him twice in the last two months and he hasnt
            made a move. My body isn’t supermodel but I’m not ugly and consider myself attractive. Not one move, nothing……
            any indications here?
