De Jours 18 Radish

12/7/2019, 3:06 pm by markqz

I got the 18 day radish from Baker Creek. It's been 20 days since transplant (I don't count from planting -- too many variables). I think I could harvest one of the ten I planted:

What do you think about this Planting Template for SFG?

2/20/2012, 4:48 pm by EatYourVeggies

I'm a Life Member of National Home Gardening and receive a few e-mails each week in general, but also announcing new products. Today's product consisted of the item below, used for spacing your seeds in a straight line, presumably in a row garden. Shocked  

Just as I was about to dismiss it, I paged down a bit to read that they claim their product is perfect for SFG. Well, that got my …

Cleaning and whitewashing of fruit tree trunks

3/26/2020, 9:19 am by Kay Burton

I clean bark in September only on old trees. Young fruit ones do not need this procedure. I want to note that the bark peels off more easily after a long rain - it swells and becomes malleable.
I spread a dense sheet of tarpaulin under the tree. You can use other materials - wrap, roofing, burlap. It is necessary to ensure a good fit of the panel to the trunk without gaps. Moreover, the radius of …

7/19/2011, 3:49 am by middlemamma

Sorry Y’all, this was supposed to be LAST Friday’s (July 14th) Rookie Topic and I dropped the ball.


I had never heard of a Potato Onion before I joined this forum. Ander217 (she doesn’t post here anymore, and I miss her very much) introduced me and the rest of the forum to them. They are a type of multiplier onion that is planted in the fall and overwintered, in even the …
