experiences eh?? October 19, 2005 6:40 AM

..In 1999 I moved into this house. The yard is ringed with rosebushes and other plants/bushes. before moving here theonly gardening I knew was how to start a mower. I don't concern myself with trying to "manicure" anything, just keeping all those plants/bushes clear of weeds and watered is plenty of work-......on ocassion I find it nessesary to move a plant....so far they all survived  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Do you enjoy all the hard work? I do as long as I have some time to enjoy the results.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
hard work November 11, 2005 3:15 PM

I have to get out there and get the garden cleared for winter. The ponds will have to have the fountains shut down. We have had a very warm fall so far, but I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak. It's gonna get cold one of these days!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
EXPERIENCE EH! December 08, 2005 1:31 PM

even if you don't have experience you can grow a garden. I have started several for friends over the years that claim they have no experience. all you need are a few bags of good soil and some seed. you can put several holes on the tops of the bags or cut a line across the top drop in your seeds, water and watch them grow. i find tomatoes, cucumbere, herbs, and all sorts of flowers do great in this way.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Thank you Rhonda December 13, 2005 9:12 PM

I'm new to gardening. This past growing season, I actually grew 3 tomatoes, 1 very thin zuchinni, a very small pumpkin that never turned, all in ice cream buckets in the shady side of the house. I was desperate to get to grow something. I still have chives and a few small onions growing. In my frig, I have healthy head of garlic all sprouted up about 2 inches. Can I plant those outside now? If they can grow in the frig, they might like it outside too. Next year, I aim to have a sunnier location. I like growing in containers, I might even try the bag idea too. Weed controll and all. Easy to water. Less hard digging. I'm an old starter. I don't expect to actually eat much of what grows. Maybe one of these years. Thanks for your comments.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
garlic December 18, 2005 1:46 PM

Cool idea about the bags Rhonda. Marcel, your Garlic would probably grow just find outdoors, but I don't think you can plant it now unless you live in a warm climate. Be careful, it could spread quickly! Every spring we can always tell when someone has mowed the garlic! Smells all over the neighborhood!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I made a green house once March 05, 2006 3:40 PM

Out of cheap metal shelving I bought at zellers for for 11 buck a piece...I rearranged it into a square shape put some grommets into plastic screwed it on and even added a door..I made it hydroponic and put it on my balcony it had fans and extra light and only cost me 300 buck including the drip system.I did it because I was living in an apartment at the time...it was a penthouse and I had the roof to play with too...so i had troughs for my carrotts and stuff and pots for everything else...I learned how to grow cukes on a teepee frame so they took up less space.It was actually one of the best gardens I ever had...the peppers I grew in the green house were huge five feet tall and perfect...  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
