  • Hi!(:
    Im a new follower, and my name is lisa, I'm only sixteen, but about two weeks ago I became very interested in making my own garden!:D

    About five days ago my first red onion started to sprout so I was very happy!

    But I guess I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself(:

  • How exactly do you tie up your asparagus fronds? Can you bend them over? Mine are taking up a lot of space!

  • My tomato and squash seedlings haven't been selling at the farmer's market, so I will be giving most of them away to a local community garden. I'm glad somebody will use them (rather than just composting them)!

  • Hi! I am loving your writing. I'm in zone 6A and my spinach just bolted at about 4 inches tall, rats. I did plant about a month late, I think. I see you transplanted your spinach. I've always direct seeded. Please tell me the benefits of planting transplants of spinach. Lovely garden, congratulations!

  • Sounds like you got a lot done! How do you tie up your asparagus fronds? Ours are definitely need some sort of support.

    I'd also like to know how it is that you tie up your asparagus fronds. Could you give us a photo to clarify? It would be much appreciated by your loyal followers.

  • EWWW squishing bugs… We don't squish our potato bugs. My pap taught me this. Fill a small (or large coffee can up with oil or some type of fuel- we typically use diesel fuel because my dads tractor uses it. I worked a farm and taught that to them and they used veggie oil. Then just flick the potato bugs into the can. Then just put the lid on til next time. The potato bugs don't stand a chance.
