Boc Choi question

6/9/2016, 8:43 am by johnp

I optimistically grow Boc Choi every year and every year it is consumed by bugs before I get to it. This year however I won and was able to get three uses. The plants have now bolted and flowered but are the leaves still good for stir frying? I pulled all the plants up and saved most of the leaves but do not know if they are still good.

Solution for a non-existent problem?

12/18/2018, 5:20 pm by OhioGardener

I wonder if some times there are solutions invented for which there was no problem to solve? For the average gardener, there probably is no need to have drill-powered hold digger....but, what do you think? Would you find this tool useful?

SFG Journey: Beneficial nematodes experiment

12/14/2018, 8:38 pm by has55

I’m going to try an experiment with my 14 vermicomposting buckets this winter. It may be the wrong time to do it, so if it fails, I will retry in the spring, but I should have some success with my 4 vermicompost buckets in the greenhouse. I have been studying how to grow my own beneficial nematodes to compost the enemies in the soil. I found these websites to be helpful though I have not tried …

How to lay out 44"x44" boxes

5/11/2018, 8:33 pm by jsblock11

Hello, just joined so looking forward to learning more about SFG!  I just purchased vinyl raised beds from Costco that have interior box measurements of 44"x44" and 11 inches deep.  Doing the math, I would be using 11"x11" squares, about a 16% reduction in size from Mel's recommended 12x12 inch squares.  Should I go down to 12 squares of 11x15, or 9 squares of ~15x15 or am I being too …

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

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 …
