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?
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.
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 …

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

Snow peas coming out fat
6/28/2021, 8:32 pm by karynne
My snow pea plants (started in april zone 6) produced some nice peas (maybe a handful) but now are coming out with the pods already plump. It's kind of a bummer.
Is it too hot or too little water or something else?
Would appreciate any advice, thanks!

Here's an interesting article from the Ft. Worth Star Telegram:
"Monarch butterflies, hit hard by strong storms at their winter home in Mexico, have dwindled to their lowest population levels in decades as they begin to return to Texas on their springtime flight back to the United States and Canada. .... …

Does anyone here use soil amendments?
6/6/2021, 6:04 pm by John5678
I'm mixing soil for my raised bed vegetable garden. I'm using 1/3 compost, 1/3 vermiculite, and 1/3 peat moss. Many vegetable gardeners recommend many soil amendments such as:rock dust, biochar, mychorrizae, vermicompost, kelp meal, bone meal, etc. Does anyone here include any soil amendment in their vegetable garden soil, or do they just stick with the Mel's Mix? Thanks for any replies.
