raised bed quanders

3/1/2024, 7:24 pm by dtilt1

I put leaves onto the top of the raised bed last year. 

Now this year I am wondering if I need to try and incorporate them into the soil or dig them back out and then add any dirt or ammendments I may need.

I am getting my bed soil tested right now so I know what to add Square Foot Gardening - portal1 1f600 .

my compost bin which is mostly an open bin did nothing for me.  I am …

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

Bokashi

3/13/2013, 4:01 pm by jazzycat

I've been wanting to compost for a long time, but it seems so complicated and confusing, and I'm a procrastinator, so I've never done it. I recently learned about a system called Bokashi, and you ferment the food in buckets, and then add it to the compost pile, or dig a hole where you want to plant and cover it, and after a few weeks you have compost. It seems easy enough. You just toss in …

Best rain barrel instructions

6/7/2012, 12:35 pm by claudiamedic

I've seen a gazillion What a Face plans for rain barrel systems on the web. They all seem to have different pros and cons. Here's what I need: a relatively simple plan for 2 rain barrels. These will be fashioned by a novice with a minimum of power tools. The barrels are closed (two bung holes on the top). I've read about the plastic "self-threading" if you use a metal spigot....sounds like a big …

Season extension questions!

10/10/2023, 7:01 am by jemm

Hi, I have some questions about season extension techniques and when to use them. I am in Zone 6a, western Pennsylvania. I made 2 hoop house frames for 2 of my beds and they currently still have insect netting on them. Can anyone provide guidance about when to put on row covers and when to take row covers off and put on plastic? Do I go by specific temperatures or types of frost warnings? Help, …
