Change of plans..
Hi there, so like many gardeners in the northern half of France, I've been falling from grace these past few weeks due to the slug epidemic. I kid you not. There is not enough ferramol, beer traps, sawdust filled trenches or mulch sheeting to keep them off of my crops. Since the end of the mo...
Sunflowers & Lavendar together?
Hello, I am new here so haven't seen many posts yet. I want to plant Sunflowers in large pots along with my Lavender plants. Has anyone done this successfully? Vj
Getting ready to plant some starts in a spot. Want to get a patch going as a medicine.Also, has anyone ever eaten horseradish leaf?
Arugula or Rocket
I only just realised that Rocket is probably not on the list because someone has posted Arugula, (I recently posted a request for Rocket to be added to the list). Having both Rocket and Arugula on the list even though they are the same vegetable could possibly be confusing, however I think...
new vegetable - broad bean
Request for broad bean to be put on the list of vegetables
Can you add Rocket to the list please, surprised it's not there already, very common greens crop.

Some of these (cauliflower, beets, mesclun)...

Do the best with what you have..
It is only the beginning of my gardening adventure, and there are ups and downs but overall, I'm already finding it fulfilling. The honeyberries (ordered from a farm, about 25cm in height) are already flowering and greatly enjoing the transition. From that farm I had also ordered goji, amelanch...
Seedlings, bed prep, pink blueberries
Most of the seeds I started a couple weeks ago have sprouted and gotten going. It looks like I will need to pick up one [black beauty eggplant](crop), one [butternut squash](crop), and one [basil](crop) plant. And maybe [oregano](crop) if I still don't get around to starting those (I didn't have ...

Starting my peppers from seed.
I just started some Cayenne (one labeled 'cayenne blend' and the other 'long thin'), White Habanero, Jimmy Nardello, Sweet Cubanelle, Sweet Banana, Big Thai Hybrid, and Spicy Fiesta Hybrid. I might start my tomatoes later this week or wait for the weekend. Kinda wish there was a way to keep tra...
This weekend I had two full days to really focus on the yard, and I made the most of it. With the intermittent help of several others over the course of the weekend, I got both easement planter boxes filled with compost and soil, cleaned up and weeded the alley, got the stump pulled from the coni...
