I love hearing from you and one of my favorite things about this blog is all the comments people leave and the sense of community we have.
I spotted a few comments on Facebook recently that I just don’t have the answers for and I was hoping you could help out. After all I am just a backyard gardener and it still amazes me on a daily basis that so much food can come from such a tiny seed. How it all transpires is really a miracle if you ask me.
If you know the answer or have a suggestion to the questions below, please leave a comment so we can all help each other have a rock star garden.
Quick question. Do I need To Be Concerned About The Salt Content Of Peanut Shells Boiled In Brine? Should I Put Them In My Compost Pile Or Not? Thanks!
I live in northern MI and have lots of space for a garden, but my soil is mostly sand and our season is very short. How can I create a great space to grow for very little money? And what kind of edibles can survive our cold nights?
Any idea of how to rid the pesky little black and yellow inch worms. I hand clear my tomatoes plants daily but have been given charge of my neighbors while they’re out of town. I went over to water and found the plants loaded with their eggs and a few adults happily munching on the fruit. I want to do it naturally and for low cost. Please help if you can.
How do you deal with burrowing/digging critters?
I am having issues with beetles on my cucumbers. The marigold extract and orange oil is not working. Do you know of another organic I can use to get rid of them? I’ve been killing as many as I can find each day by just squishing them but every day there are more! I’m ready to use the pesticide powder if I can’t find something quick because they have already killed half of the blooms.
Serious question… I have moved, and now instead of giant spiders, I have these wee ones knitting leaves of plants together.. I want to stay organic, but some killing, shoo-ing, de-spidering has to be done. They’ve hit gulmohar, pomegranate, but especially love the basil. They haven’t hit the tomatoes or anything else so far. Ain’t nobody got time for spiders in they Sunday gravy! Help!
Thanks for your help everyone, I appreciate it!
