  1. Homesteading and gardening
    DH planted a vegetable garden last year, but with the exception of grape tomatoes, the groundhog that lives under the shed reaped all of the benefits of our garden. I wasn't too into a garden last year, but I really want to save money and eat healthier, so this seems logical. Looking for tips...
  2. Homesteading and gardening
    Ok. I have a HUGE backyard. But to think of it in terms of a HUGE garden is too much for me at the moment. So I'd like to start small. I have a smaller (already raised bed) about 6 feet wide and 4 feet across. Full summer sun! I live in Colorado Springs, CO. As a first timer what should I...

  4. Homesteading and gardening
    We tried a garden last year (maybe two years ago) to make less grass to mow. We didn't know what to do with all the vegetables. :P We've since learned some more vegetable cooking, but we also still don't have much time to tend to the garden. What are some good things to plant that we can kind...
  5. Homesteading and gardening
    Later today I will be planting a small container garden. My first one, and I'm really nervous about doing it well. My husband does a big garden, but I don't want to ask his advice or very quickly my garden will become his garden :( What I've done/know so far; *I asked at Lowes and was told I...
  6. Homesteading and gardening
    I have planted a few tomatoes from plants at the nursery, but I don't like them. I come from CA so I am used to more variety then they give in the East Coast nurseries. I have ordered different seeds that are ok for my zone. My last frost date is 4/23 so I want to plant outside on May1...

    Vegetable Storage for the Urban Gardener http://www.durgan.org/URL/?IKYQV 25 August 2009 Vegetable Storage for the Urban Gardener Urban gardeners usually don't have a suitable place to store extra produce from the garden. Modern houses seldom have a suitable cold room, and the quantity stored is...
  9. Supplemental Income, Small Business
    Apparently it's a Direct Sales company (like Tupperware or Avon), only it caters to gardeners in specific. Organic stuff from what their website says. I ask because I saw it featured on The View briefly in a segment about Stay at Home Moms working from home. Does anyone here do it? I would love...
  10. Question and Answer
    I would love to have a vegetable and herb garden next year. Are their sites/information for beginners? (or better yet, a thread here at FV?) Thanks!:hug2:
  11. Homesteading and gardening
    I remember seeing this on QVC a few years ago for a lot more. Now it's still a lot more expensive than a couple of packs of seed but if you're nervous about trying your hand at growing flowers it might be a good place to start (for a price ;) ). It's on the Amazon Friday Sale;

    There's a great free Gardener's Kit at TheGardenScoop.com and it gives you a print and cut out chart for what to plant where. I've read some about companion gardening, but planting my veggies the "right way" has just never clicked. Really cool and helpful.

    I talked to Margery tonight and told her she was being missed here at the village. She asked me to let you know she is doing well and has just been busy. Her bil had a heart attack and there's been other family issues as well. She's trying to get some home repairs done before winter too. She...
