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 …

Self Watering containers?

9/25/2020, 12:14 pm by OldCrow

Hello Everyone, 
My wife and I will be out of town for a couple weeks late Oct. And I have two pepper plants and 3 tomato plants in 2gal HomeDepot buckets with MM. They are very productive and I'd love to keep them going all winter!
In Maine they are indoor plants and I've been looking at self watering as a solution to keep them through 2 weeks. 

The issue is that I've just been growing them …

beneficial nematodes

5/31/2013, 10:13 am by jewlz2121

Beneficial nematodes...Who all uses them? What do you use them for? How do you use it? Do you use them as a preventative or use after you see pests? I'm trying to decide if my various bugs would benefit from adding this to the garden. I know there are bad nematodes as well...any chance that adding the good ones brings the bad ones?

How much compost do I need?

6/11/2020, 4:01 pm by Eddie Willers

So after an extensive search I don't quite see anyone having discussed this before.

Relatively new to SFG, just got my beds set up, and have done the math on how much compost I need to get my MM set up to start. I am going with slightly less than 1/3 Peat Moss to account for the moss content in my store bought compost, but thats a separate issue, and easily calculated.

At the same time I am …

Ground Cherries

6/9/2020, 6:24 pm by Emily49

I started reading more about ground cherries and the Tomatilla plant I bought.  (Thank you for the citizen scientist project website) I read that some varieties do not produce fruit on their own, so I called my nursery because there wasn't any information on the tag.  My plant ID app said it was a Large Leaf Tomatilla, but I don't totally trust that AI yet.  The nursery is still waiting for …

Zone 5a gurus

8/21/2020, 6:43 pm by p14shooter

Soooo. After a couple years of doing the same old I made this year a learning year. Planting earlier, planting later, growing up instead of out. Planting for seeds for next year and doing more reading.

I knew of this but did not really give it much thought until I read a couple interesting articles on companion planting. My question to you 5a gurus is do you  plant garlic in specific square in …

Pull Bean Plants to Pick Beans?

7/24/2020, 5:45 pm by OhioGardener

I have never heard of picking green beans this way, and wondering if anyone else does it. From the True Leaf Market page for on-line ordering of Blue Lake Bush Beans:

"Because green beans are annual, you can simply pull the root from the ground when it’s time to pick them."   (https://www.trueleafmarket.com/products/bean-bush-blue-lake-bush-274?variant=38922254792)

I have never heard …
