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?

    Irrigation sprinkler heads for a vegetable garden.?

    Monday, March 28th, 2011

    Does anyone know of a sprinkler head that I can purchase that has some hoses I can spread out in my vegetable garden. I want to make sure my vegetables get watered everyday and I sometimes can’t because of my little one. I know there are bubblers out there, but I would like something that has like little hoses or maybe just a few hoses I can spread out to make sure all the roots are getting enough water.

    Thanks for letting me know!

      Help! The fungus gnats are killing my indoor vegetable garden….?

      Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

      I planted an indoor garden and my plants were growing really nice. I know have an extreme infestation of what I think are fungus gnats…they really like the soil. So I went today and got the fly sticky paper and it worked really well. I also wanted to kill the eggs and the ones in the soil so I got neem oil, it said it was for organic gardening. It did not have an effect on the bugs, just me and the plants. I feel sick to my stomach and have a headache since messing with it and four of my tomato plants died. They were close to dieing from the gnats eating their roots but the neem killed them off.

      I heard that if you mix dish soap with water and then put it on the plants it kills the bugs and their eggs without harming the plants….Is this true? If so, how much dish soap to water do I use.
