This season: what worked? what didn't?

8/22/2015, 11:03 pm by dk54321

Due to various distractions, my garden did not get the attention it needed this year. 

Garlic seems to thrive no matter what. Once I had a flower bed where nothing would grow. I planted garlic in the fall. When it came up, my son thought it was a weed, and mowed it all down with the lawn mower. It came back in the spring. My idiot landlord thought it was a weed, tore out the flower bed, and …

Free Mulch & Compost

11/4/2018, 3:08 pm by OhioGardener

Went out for my afternoon walk today, and passed a house where the owner was taking down a Halloween display they had set up on their porch. Among the things he had sitting there were 2 bales of straw, and 3 pumpkins. I greeted him, and asked what he was going to do with them - he said he was going to set them out for the trash. I told him I would love to have the straw for garden mulch, and I …

Tomato Tuesday 2018

4/21/2018, 1:05 pm by Turan

I just noticed we have not started this years thread.  I have been sitting in Yolo's garden dreaming of tomatoes and I did start some seeds on 4/13.  Today I noticed they have true leaves and roots poking out of the soil blocks so I up potted.  They could wait, but this coming week is busy and I would rather err on the side of lots of room to grow.  And today being Tuesday....  or not, but …

Sanderson's Table Top Beds

7/18/2018, 4:01 am by sanderson

There are several ways to make a SFG table top bed.  This is just the way I chose after viewing other folks' designs.  A little of this one, a little of that one.

I can't find where I previously posted photos of the making of one of my table tops beds, so I decided to make a new thread so I won't have to reinvent the wheel. thinking  Some of my beds (those that are only 2' wide have 1/2 or …

Today's Harvest

6/24/2017, 3:36 pm by sanderson

I know some of you have great harvests so I thought I would start this thread.  Here's my little harvest today, the 6th day of over 100*F.  I never would have thought I could get overwhelmed with Muncher cucumbers!  There are still 6 in the refrig.  The 2 at the top of the photo have deformatives.

In this heat, these could have been …

SFG Journey:Eggplant and heat

10/2/2018, 11:45 am by has55

This is the first year I planted Listada De Gandia Eggplant in the garden. I observed the fruit turned white or yellow when the temps reach exceeded 90's degrees with the heat index in High 90's or over 100's degrees. We started hitting 90's the first week in June. I didn't know if I could eat them at this stage. I had lost the ID tag and …

Malabar Spinach Deficiency

10/1/2018, 11:04 am by dstack

Any idea what nutrient deficiency causes Malabar Spinach to fade and turn reddish? It's on the older leaves that are in full sun. Part of the vine is in full shade and remains green. I've been spraying Epsom salts water on it thinking it might be magnesium, but don't know for sure if that is
