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 ?

OVER Fertilizing

7/1/2018, 5:02 am by sfg4uKim

Here's a gentle reminder . . . STOP OVER FERTILIZING YOUR VEGETABLES! I've seen too many posts in other places about people getting great green growth and no tomatoes.

For the love of all that is holy, STOP adding fertilizer until you know that you have a deficiency in something. Then, choose the RIGHT fertilizer. If you're soil is good in nitrogen, adding a fertilizer with too much nitrogen …

What would you do if you were starting over SFG today?

I know a lot of folk here use various things in their gardens like milk jugs, soda bottles, netting, etc.

Friday Rookie Topic XII: Cucumbers

7/1/2011, 10:53 pm by BackyardBirdGardner

This one isn't so uncommon in the garden. But, it took me years to get up the courage to try it out. I just didn't have the space to let things sprawl.

Heat wave and shade screen

6/16/2016, 4:07 pm by terryNeb

We are in the middle of our 8th straight day in the mid to upper 90's and are expecting at least 7 more days. Does anyone use sun shades over their garden to filter the sun? if so, to what degree sun/shade, 60/40, 50/50, or other. I have already set up screens on my peppers, tomates, and herbs at 60/40. just wondering what others do or don't do. also watering, in a heat wave, once a day, twice? …
