I can save you a LOT of time and effort!
A lot of what people have been told is based on older models of gardens. 400 square foot in ground gardens using existing soil. I advocate raised beds using new soil and organic fertilizers. I can…"
I grew up in a home where my Dad grew many fruits and vegetables almost every year. Now that I am married and in our own home, I want to start my own garden. I have ordered non-gmo, organic seeds. I also bought a starter kit to start by…"
Plants don't grow in 100% compost. It doesn't have the proper structure - it isn't a soil. I use a blend of 75% compost and 25% river sand. I suggest you add some sand and see what happens. You could add some organic…"
I have been growing organic vegetables in my back yard for over twenty years and I've started a business that installs raised bed gardens and coaches others to be successful gardeners. I recently finished Master Gardener training and I had a lot of fun. I look forward to meeting others interested in Veggies!
home grown veggies, especially salads. Yellow sweet potatoes. Fresh peas! Yum!
Dear Don,...Remember me...I used to work with you on your insurance at The Record Exchange. I know you are the expert now at organic gardening. Someday I hope to have some of your vegetable beds in my yard.
I am trying to solicit some donations for the Slow Food USA national online auction, and thought you might be interested in donating something. Our convivia would receive 80% of proceeds of items donated to benefit us. Email me or leave me a comment if you are interested or would like to find out more!
Don----you sounded fine! And the Inconvenient Truth vs Inconvenient Book discussion was no big deal. I bet it seemed longer to you than it did to anyone listening. We first tuned in when you were giving the list of recommended books, and my husband said, "is that guy reading off the names of books on your shelf, Amy?"
I would like to talk shop about raised beds and materials. I've always used permanent beds, but for various reasons, decided NOT to raise them. I'm on the Garden committee for the edible schoolyard dealie we've got going here. All of my garden experience is tailored for conditions in West Texas, and I'm wondering what kind of surprises the Carolinas will spring on me.
I'll be out West until sometime in early January. (Actually we left soon after I posted last, or I would have replied sooner). Maybe we can talk then?
Hi Don! Welcome. I picked up one of your "Free Vegetables for Life" advertisement cards outside a store the day I moved to the area from Texas (that was in September). It caught my attention because my husband and I have discussed what a good idea for a small business that would be-----installing permanant bed organic gardens for folks. How's it going?
