How can I overcome my fear of gardening?

Friday, August 26th, 2011

I tried to get into the hobby of gardening recently. I loved it until one day in my garden after removing weeds I saw the soil move by itself! I’m very superstitious and I fear that my house has being built on an ancient burial ground. I’m very scarred to go out into the garden now and I’m afraid something terrible will happen such as zombies. It makes it hard to sleep at night. I’m being very serious, how can I overcome this?

    I like him but his girlfriend Naomi is a little possessive, she wont let him sleep with anyone but her.

      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.

        My dog is pissing me off. Help!!!?

        Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

        I have a year old lab/greyhound mix that has an enormously large backyard, lots of soft and hard chew toys and 3 friends to play with (one dog, two cats). He won’t stop chewing my blankets, garden decor and other things. He also won’t stop digging. And it’s not that it’s hot or that there are animals we need to worry about. It is totally pissing me off and I have no idea how to stop it. I have tried putting him on a lead and he just digs holes around him bc he’s pissed off. We have tried giving him the run of the backyard with a warm place to go to sleep in. We have tried many things. HELP!!!
        I have tried keeping him in the house but then he chews on blankets, gets in the trash.

        I would love to take him to obedience training except that he know how to sit, walk on a leash, and all the fun tricks they learn at training.

        What kind of punishment is acceptable?
        I appreciate the feedback. To those whom think I shouldn’t own dogs…. I absolutely love my dogs however I feel a little overwhelmed and that is why I have asked for suggestions. Nicole I don’t appreciate your comments as I love my dog and I spend as much time with him as I do my toddler. He is very well taken care of it is just when I am at work that these things happen. Then I come home having to clean up after his mess or repair blankets because he got bored during the day.

        Kitten urinating in indoor garden, ideas to stop this?

        Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

        I am asking this question for my mother. Our family cat of 16 years had to be put to sleep a few months ago and in her old age she started not wanting to brave the cold outside to toilet and instead was using the indoor garden. Now 3 or 4 months later mum has got a new kitten for the family but she is trying to use the same spot inside as our old cat. I read that cats do this because the smell of previous animals is really strong to them even though it has been cleaned. So Mum wants to stop this behavior ASAP. The kitten is really good and goes outside, she has a cat door and is really good about using it and gets lots and lots of praise when she goes outside, but she still tries to use the indoor garden as well. It is full of alive plants and is a big stone planter box so it can’t be removed. Any ideas on how to stop this or anything we can spray around live plants that will deter kitty? Oh one more thing, mum has tried one thing that you sprinkle around, not sure of the name of it I think its some sort of orange crystals but its not helping, and she has tried putting pebbles on top of the dirt but kitty still just tries to dig the pebbles out of the way to get to the dirt.
