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

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.
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 ;-)
Anyone else have plants they'd like to stump everyone with?
