    I Like To Do Evil Hybriding Experiments

    I have a bit of evil scientist in me. I love to cross various types of pumpkins and corn and other things just to see what I will come up with. This year, I came up with a new variety of Indian corn. I'll have to plant it next year to be sure the kernals grow the same corn but I...

    Green Thumb

    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...

    Would Enjoy Flower Seeds, Thank You For Those Who Sell By The Road

    I love inside plants and gardening. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so I can't keep up with it as I'd like to. I'd love to go out there and dig and plant and weed...and even when the drive in me is high to get out there and do it, I just can't.  I have good days, or better...

    Im really no green thumb

    and my garden is a complete hodge-podge but I do love digging in the dirt, planting things, and seeing what they'll do. It's sort of therapeutic and meditative. :)

    Indoor Water Garden

    I'm trying to start an indoor water garden by using an old feed container. There's a pond nearby where I can collect a few minnows and wild aquatic flora. I also need some sort of pump/water filter so I won't have to keep scrubbing this thing clean every week or so. I guess we...

    Do You Talk to Your Plants?

    C'mon, it's confession time here in the garden....do you ever talk to your plants?  If so, do you just tell them how your day went? (I tried that....even the plastic ones died) Or do you encourage  them by reading brilliant gardening self-help manuals on how to...

    Still Cleaning Up The Yard

    My yard is a mess from years of neglect.  I just cleaned out a corner today, and found a lot of empty pots. I usually have a lot of plants die because I just can't take care of them all, but I soon replace them.  I think I'm addicted to propagation.  I'm not...

    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...

    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...

    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...
