  1. Homesteading and gardening
    Hello, I'm new to this forum and to gardening. I have worked the last 2 seasons on small vegetable farms in Idaho and Connecticut and am now trying to grow vegetables in my personal garden in Portland, OR. I wouldn't say I plan on homesteading it this year since I just moved into a new house and...
  2. Homesteading and gardening
    I am fairly new to gardening. I started my first garden 3 years ago. After researching I decided to try a square foot garden. The main reason was for simplicity. I didn't want a complicated garden or I might have given up. So here I am 3 years later and I have expanded my square foot garden...

    ~Just a pic for you to enjoy. :) I've only planted lettuce, peas and spinach so far. Everything else will be planted the first week of May(according to the almanac). I customized my grids since I learned that the Roma tomatoes I started were determinate(meaning big and bush like)and would need...

    ~SFG is something I've wanted to do for almost 10 years but the costs involved in the start-up scared me. This post will probably scare you all too. :crackup: This year I decided I was going to make the investment and not freak out about how much it cost. It's an investment. Compost: $35...

    Who's done it and what are your thoughts? I have some success with it but there are things that I personally did not like. Below are my results. Tomatoes - I HATED it. The plants grew in to one another and picking the tomatoes inside was a PITA! Beans - see tomatoes. I wound up breaking a lot...

    I've been having foot problems for a year and have stopped my daily walking because of it. Being stubborn and hoping that it would miraculously fix itself I've ignored the problem. Well I had my yearly check up at the docs and he sent me to a podiatrist who x rayed my foot so we could really see...

    Has anyone here ever had either of these conditions?? My story: I've always been one to fall and sprain my ankle. It would always happen when I would "roll" my foot. I even went so far as the tear ligaments in each ankle at one point or another. Left foot had to be surgically repair. Right foot...

    My DS and family are here for the week. As I was walking up to the beach house my foot went sideways and , yep, it broke. So, now I'm in a hard cast for 6 weeks. Bummer. Great way to start the summer, eh?
  12. Question and Answer
    Anyone know if I can use borax on an old claw foot tub? Baking soda isn't cutting it & I know I can't use bleach or comet on it.

    You remember the Dog with the foot fetish? I posted about her months ago here Well we have come to the realization that she has a BAD foot fetish and only with my feet!!! The other night I was sitting in the rocking...

    Has anyone tried sq ft gardening before? Did you like it? Did it help keep the weeds down? My husband and I are considering using this method this year, we have a 25x35 garden and we had trouble with weeds last year.

    Ok, so apparently my feet don't know that I am lazy and far from an athlete! I am an anti shoe and sock person. I'd wear sandles year round if the weather permitted. So every year in late fall, early winter, I tend to get athlete's foot (or something similair) when I start wearing shoes and...

    Some other poor soul in our little town of 5,000 folks wears a size 11W like me- and has good taste in shoes, and uses the 'swap shop' at the dump. Passed up some summer sandals my first trip there, but on my second trip found a pair of lightly used girly sketcher sneakers, size 11 (and wide...

    My mom has always favored my niece over my own kids. My kids have had hurt feelings so many times and last night was the last straw. My mom took my oldest out to buy a new outfit last weekend. She brought home a outfit she did not like and started telling me about this sweater she saw that she...

    Has anyone ever try the foot dextoxing? I heard that it works really good. I just don't understand on how the water would change throughout the process. I can get it done for 25.00 but I just think it would not work. SO that is why I am looking for more information on this process.Can anyone...

    The dogs and I were walking around the garden and they started going crazy ~ like pulling my arm out of it's socket crazy ~ trying to get in the garden. So I look around and am trying to figure out what the heck they are seeing that I'm not. There in my garden is a 3 FOOT LONG SNAKE SKIN...
