  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...

    Last year someone from FV posted a link to view the Rockefeller Christmas tree LIVE 24/7 . It was a great view and you could see all the people walking the streets at all hours of the night. I have been trying to find it this year but NO luck. I have found a few but they are not like the one I...

    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.

  12. Homesteading and gardening
    I bought the Mel Bartholmew book some years ago and finally decided to give it a go this year in my new raised beds. I have always been the traditional "row" gardener and the practice of sq ft gardening seemed like a pretty good idea. Well, I'm not "thrilled" with the outcome of some of it...

    I have an old kitchen island from that really light wood with a butcher block top. Tried to sell it at a garage sale for 20 but nobody bought it. Thinking that top alone would be worth 20... so what I'm gonna do is use my jigsaw and cut the whole thing up. Use the top as a heavy duty cutting...

    I need help figuring out an easy way to calculate measurements. I'm trying to to calculate the square footage of the front of my house. But the front of my house is not a rectangle or square. It goes to a peak. I can't remember ever learning how to do this in school. The house is 24'8" wide...

    So, when you're making things whatever it may be, how do you keep things square? I'm a beginner, and I can't seem to make things square. I want to make my DB a blanket, and one for a friend as a thank you, and I want them to look great, so they kinda need to be square (or rectangular) any...

    Between reading the book "Maxed Out" (and how overextended we are as a country and as individuals); looking at the houses that people live in now (square footage compared to just 50 years ago, 100 years ago, etc.); and noting the cost of living now to times gone by...I got to thinking... Many...

    Thanks to itsahumanzoo and MarshHen we went to Mallory Square and had a blast. We walked down Duvall Street, ate at Red Fish Blue Fish with chickens running around (LOL) and then went to Mallory Square and watched the sunset. You guys were right, it did take my breath away. I took several...
