Mulching question?

9/24/2021, 9:41 pm by rdhwyalane

This may be a dumb question, but I'll ask anyway... Do you mulch when you plant seeds, or after your plants begin to grow?

I used wheat straw to mulch the area where i planted my seeds.  We've had quite a bit of rain here lately so the mulch is wet, and I'm wondering if it will "smother" them.  I pushed aside the mulch and see that some of the seeds are starting to grow, I just wonder if they …

what to do with cherry tomatoes that fell off vine

9/28/2021, 10:05 am by stevenfstein

Season is about over and lots of cherry tomatoes have fallen off the vine and are lying on the ground, largely split open or disintegrating. Do I just leave them there, mix them into the soil or should I  remove them?

Much appreciated... Steve

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

Mulch question

9/9/2021, 2:41 pm by rdhwyalane

Hello, newbie here.  I made the mistake of mulching with wheat straw, and have now managed to successfully grow grass. 😐 I’ve been trying to pull up the grass, but new grass pops up so quick. 😩 Any suggestions what I should do?  Should I remove all the wheat straw?

Thank you for any input.

Mind games with long beans

8/23/2021, 11:35 am by markqz

Long beans want to grow tall. But I don't want to make a 20 ft trellis! This year I played a trick on the beans. I trained them to go around the rings of wire tomato cages before growing up a central pole. Those cages were never much use with tomatoes, so why not?

what did I do wrong and when to correct?

8/7/2021, 10:55 am by stevenfstein

My first year with SFG and all new (mostly) Mel's mix. Also tried the string method for tomatoes and cut off as many suckers as I could. Here are my observations. All plants from nursery containers, not from seed. Bush beans wildly successful and still producing. 2 Zucchini plants were huge with tons of flowers but hardly any vegetables between them. Kale and Basil did great. Tomatoes big …

New SGFer with nutrient deficient soil

7/18/2021, 3:38 pm by Hmgentry

I read the book and found someone on FB marketplace to make 10 8x2 ft raised cedar garden beds for me. She also sourced the compost, vermiculite, and peat moss. I put everything together and planted all my vegetables from seed (direct sow) in June. I was late starting but wanted to go ahead and plant everything and see what grew my first year of gardening. Most of the seeds sprouted quickly, but …

Anyone grow okra?

5/1/2010, 11:14 pm by argardener

I have never grown okra, but it is a very popular veggie in the south. No results found for okra in the SFG search. I haven't checked the book yet, but wanted to know what experience anyone may have had.

TIA

Name that plant - the game

7/14/2021, 1:41 pm by markqz

I'm curious how many people recognize this plant? I don't think it's commonly grown ... but maybe not? And no, I don't mean the strawberry or the volunteer marigold ;-)
