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.

    My mom planted a vegetable garden over our recently buried dead cat. Is it gross to eat the vegatables?

    Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

    Our cat of twenty years died 7 months ago. We buried her approx 2 feet under ground in a cardboard shoe box. My mother planted a vegetable garden (squash, eggplant etc.) 14" away from the grave site. My mom has been serving my brother and I the vegetables every night. Is it gross or wrong to eat them?

      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?

          Indoor tomatoe garden.?

          Monday, August 22nd, 2011

          I planted my seeds in a soiless mixture under an HID and am curious to know the proper temperature to maintain if sprouting the seeds indoors. I may or may not go Hydroponic after the sprouts grow a few inches taller.

          Does anyone know of a good website that will cover the basics of starting an indoor vegetable garden. Thanks!

                    Online garden planning tools?

                    Monday, July 18th, 2011

                    This is probably just wishful thinking but does anyone know if there is an online application that will allow me to type in some information: Such as family size and types of vegetables I’d like to grow and that program will show me how much of what to plant for my family size?

                    I’d really like to start a vegetable garden but A: have no clue how much of each to plant.

                    It would be so convenient to have some ‘map’ drawn up of how much of each thing to plant, and perhaps where to plant it!
