    A Question For The Greenthumbs

    Would bamboo and strawberry plants grow well together in a planter?  In the spring I want to plant some bamboo on my small balcony and I love the idea of having strawberries as well, which I think would grow well there based on the climate here and some past experience. ...

    My Garden

    Even as a very young child I loved gardening.  Over the last few years I have gardened for several elderly people - as well as looking after my own garden.  I do have 2 hens and 2 ducks that are free range - poultry and gardening do not mix very - so last year I built 2 raised...

    Food From The Yard!

    I like to grow food!  That having been said, I'm busy, lazy, and not the most organized person...so for me the key to success seems to be selecting tough plants that need more whacking-back than nursemaiding. Tomatoes? bah.  I may try them as a spring crop, but once it gets...

    Garden In A Pinch

    Well, it seems I will be moving this July so I can't have my regular garden. My BF is in another state, hopefully getting a job. I am out in the boonies. I can't drive and have no way to get anywhere for fresh produce. They just cut me off SSI, the 600 a month being my only...

    Since I was a very small child and our rentor/handyman moved in with us, my family has always kept a garden. Our vegetable/fruit garden was our pride and joy (and money-saver). We were never without cucumbers, yellow squash, peppers (mostly sweet bell, but always with jalapenos...

    DAMMABLE Bugs.

    I had a little sprig of rosemary growing on my kitchen window sill, for about a month. I also had some Sage, for cooking purposes, you know. But then, these white things started growing on my rosemary and soon they developped into a potatoe bug- like creature. I became disguested...

    Developing A Green Thumb...

    As a kid, I hated gardening. I hated helping my mom planting flours, or helping grandma attending to the vegetable patch. I repeatedly killed all the flowers in my room because I simply wasn't interested in them. Well, I guess I grew out of that. Last year, my wife and myself...

    Slash And Burn

    Although I like to be out in my garden in reality all I seem to end up doing is trying to keep it under control.  Shrubs, conifers, ivy and trees need constant hacking or there will be no garden.  The patch of lawn dies off if it doesn't get light and air, moss takes over the...

    I have worked in a garden since I was 8 years old. My folks had a big back yard in the country, we would plant a variety of vegetables and berries every year. The best was picking buckets of raspberries, and eating them by the handful. Same for eating peas right out of the pod...
