Besides insect repellent lotions or sprays. Is there anything further I should use to minimize insect bites? Mosquitoes are ramped in my area. And now that the weather is getting warmer, I’d like to some pruning and gardening. Is there anything additional I should do to protect myself and dear daughter?

    I don’t know much about gardening. I’ve lived in apartments all my life, and I still do… but my landlord is letting me play with a patch of land outside my kitchen window. I live near Salt Lake City, UT. The weather looks like it might be spring.

    so… what is the URL of a gardening site that has helped you? Any sites good for beginners?

          Once it leaves the farm, seller will not be held responsible or liable for anything. Buyer takes full responsibility and agrees to clean up any and all messes and be held accountable and liable for any and all damages that may occur.

          Owner is responsible for all repairs, damages and losses after leaving the seller’s possession since seller can not guarantee the upkeep and care of such a valuable item.

          Seller is not responsible for any typos or errors in adding totals, it is the responsibility of the educated car salesman, who does these things on his job daily, to make sure the contract and all figures are accurate. Remember the seller is just an uneducated farmer.

          If the owner decides to put such a prized possession on his table, ownership will revert back to the original owner after all processing, packaging have been completed and all fee’s has been paid for by the purchaser.

          I planted my vegetable garden 2 days ago and now there's a frost warning for tonight! What should I do?

          Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

          The weather was fine all last week, you could wear shorts during the day, and all of a sudden there’s a frost warning for tonight. After that it should be back to normal. Since I only planted my seeds on Saturday, I figure it’s too early for germination to have started… should I worry? What precautions should I take? This is my first vegetable garden and I would really like to get something out of it.

          What kind of lighting do I need for an indoor garden?

          Sunday, August 1st, 2010

          I live in an apartment and I want to start an indoor vegetable garden but I don’t know very much about gardening. I can kill just about anything. I think I need some type of UV lighting for the plants to grow. And is there any particular time of the year I should plant? Since I am trying to do it indoors I don’t think the weather should be much of an issue.
