      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?

        indoor garden help!?

        Saturday, August 20th, 2011

        I am growing thyme, chives, parsley, cilantro and basil in my kitchen, all but two are sprouting. I am very excited, this is my first time doing anything like this. I have decided to expand my little garden and would like to know what other vegetables and herbs I can grow indoors. I live in Arizona, so it’s way too hot to do anything outside.
        Any help would be nice.

                  Kelly’s Vegetable Garden May 29, 2010 – Update 2

                  Thursday, August 4th, 2011

                  Hello everyone. This is a quick video update for my garden. Not much to talk about other than massive growth and lots of tomatoes popping out everywhere. I keep getting spinach, lettuce and broccoli because it has been so cool here. Today was our first day in the 80’s and it looks like it’s going to continue for a while which is good news for the garden. My next video should be a lot more interesting because I will have more to talk about. I couldn’t do any upside down garden this year because the fence belongs to my neighbor and he wasn’t too keen on me do it…. so I have decided to do something that I haven’t done before but I have always wanted to. In addition to planting a bunch more things in wine barrel containers, I’m putting together a hydroponic garden. I have been cloning plants for a long time but I thought it would be interesting to start growing them hydroponically and compare the growth using traditional methods. It should be interesting. I will try to do a video of the entire building process so stay tuned. In the meantime, happy gardening. Kelly
