Adding edging to garden beds
I finally got sick of the way the weeds are sending runners into my garden beds and I can't use the string trimmer around them for fear of hitting my plants. So I went to Home Depot to get some 4x4 to lay down the sides. And they told me they can't cut 4x4. I'm pretty sure this is wrong and that ...
multiple users on one account
My wife and I have the same plantings and harvests. Should we share one login on here? Is there a more appropriate way for our records to be co-owned?
Even though I planted tomatoes reasonably early and the weather has been quite warm, the tomatoes are just... *confused* by the weather. I have a few good sized Brandy Boy and Persimmon but they're still green. I had one really early San Marzano back in june, and another is starting to turn red. ...
cucumber.. no wait... muskmelon...
So I completely don't have the time/energy to keep my crop list up to date, but this year I planted cucumbers. Or I thought I planted cucumbers. It turns out they are armenian [cucumber](crop)s which are actually a particularly cucumbery variety of muskmelon. Many people like them but I am slight...
Tomato: Late blight?
I just pulled this from my "patio" [tomato](crop) plant (which is actually in-ground). I'm suspecting late blight. It poured rain all of last week. So, for those with more experience...is this late blight? [![Untitled](https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3918/14468052913_bf0299265e.jpg)](https:/...
I harvested two of my Cherokee Purple tomatoes today and turned one of them into a delectable tomato sandwich. It was divine. I've also harvested about forty of the Sweet 100 tomatoes and roasted them. I'm hoping to turn them into a small amount of tomato sauce. For two people, that should...
My dill plant died about a month ago. I tried to keep it going but the poor guy had just had enough. The sage, mint, thyme and chives are all fine. Sage and mint have gotten kinda down once or twice but perked up with a bit of care. The supermarket basil plant I've been trying to keep alive...
My garden survived the Hail Storm!
We had a wicked hail storm here this past Thursday. I've lived in this area for about 25 years and never saw anything like this. ![Hail in the herb garden](http://www.black-hound.net/weather/hail_01.jpg) ![Pouring hail](http://www.black-hound.net/weather/hail_02.jpg) I had recently pla...

Eep! Need advice - seeds got rained on
Hi there, I was forgetful and left a bunch of bulbs and a few seeds outside through a major rainstorm we just had. They are all soaked! They were not ready to be planted as the direct sow was in June for our hardiness area - is there anything that can be done? Thanks, ~Genevieve
I started a compost pile almost a year ago when I got the house. The county gives out these plastic rings to compost inside of (county green initiatives to save the bay include getting people to compost and use that instead of inorganic fertilizer). I got two because with the size of my yard, the...
Hi! I just put in my garden for this year and I'm ready to enter it in Growstuff, but I've realized that I'd like to link my Growstuff account to my worksafe ID rather than my, uh, non-worksafe internet handle. Is there a way to rename my account, or should I just get a new account and start clea...
