Starbucks for coffee grounds!

5/20/2013, 12:35 am by sanderson

The Starbucks manager not only gave me a heavy bag of used coffee grounds, he double bagged it and carried it out to my car, all with a smile! The grounds are super fine compared to drip ground Folgers that I used to use, so I bet it will blend nicely.

I tried a waffle house for egg shells but they didn't want the liability of giving me their "garbage." Any suggestions on obtaining egg

Pros and Cons of Weed Barrier

7/19/2019, 6:42 pm by MarkBroomfield

Please excuse me if there is a posting or series of posting on this topic.  

I have put together 3 each, 4 ft X 6 ft raised boxes comprised of 7.25" cedar that I have treated with cedar oil.  They are spaced out on my former corn plot.  I put them there after 3 years of battling weeds and, this year, not getting enough corn seeds to germinate.  Normally the corn would sprout just fine but …

Corn Growing

4/22/2015, 9:00 am by johnp

I will be planting a 4x4 box with corn for the first time. The book shows 4 per square with additional plantings every two weeks. Four per square seems a lot. What have you other corn growers done ?

Tomato Tuesday - 2018 & 2019

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 …

To keep animals out of the garden

Has anyone tried the Orbit Yard Enforcer?
It's a motion activated sprinkler that is expandable to utilize more than one sprinkler.

The Critter came back

4/14/2016, 11:28 am by MrBooker

Critters have been digging in my garden again. I wasn't sure if it was cats or not so I set up my trail cam. . Last month, I poured Pine sol around my garden and the digging stopped. I guess it wore off.  Last night I poured Pine sol around the garden again and set up my trail cam. The cat came back but didnt do any digging
    I guess the Pine sol discouraged him.

Community Garden - Azure Standard in Dufur, Oregon

7/6/2019, 9:39 am by OhioGardener

While looking up some information on remineralizing the soil, I came across a blog on the Azure Standard site about a community garden they maintain at their offices in Dufur, Oregon.  Included in the article is this quote:

The community garden is in it’s fourth season this spring. The original inspiration for the raised bed garden was from the book [url=https://www.azurestandard.com/shop/product/household-family/books/outdoor-garden/gardening/square-foot-gardening/10924]“Square Foot Gardening” by Mel …
