Learned of your website today at our local gardening club meeting, it is wonderful! I made little greenhouses out of plastic containers that greens come in, kale, spinach, etc. Are those too thin to put outside now,? The seeds have not sprouted yet. I also started some seeds inside and they have already sprouted can those go in my little outdoor greenhouse (it has heat). In fact it is 665 degrees in there right now and very humid. I opened it for some venting before dusk. Thanks a million!
Thanks for your blog. It 8767 s so informative and helpful. The idea of planting in the dark winter months lifts my spirits and gets me excited for spring.
Weeding is easiest when the soil is moist. Tools like the dandelion digger help get at the root by probing deep into the soil. Once the weed is out, promptly reseed the bare spot otherwise, new weeds will fill it in.
All of my little greenhouses have sprung their little plants. I am so excited about it. Here is what I planted: Swiss Chard, Cumin, Cauliflower, Spinach, Broccoli, Lettuce, Cabbage, Basil and Kale. Such a great idea. Can 8767 t wait to put them in the ground.
This weed is difficult to control, and does best in thin turf watered frequently and lightly. Water thoroughly and fertilize properly. Dig out small plants or spot-treat isolated ones with a postemergence weed killer. Prevent new weeds with a preemergence herbicide with oxalis on the label.
Use herbicides as a last resort—when nothing else works on a particular weed or when your lawn is completely overrun. And follow directions carefully. Used incorrectly, herbicides can injure or kill turf and other desirable plants.
WHEN is a water jug not a water jug? When it 8767 s a miniature greenhouse! Yes, the very greenhouse you need for seed-sowing in winter. Although I described this Cinderella-act in an earlier post, you might find it helpful to see the procedure in pictures:
I like this idea. I am goint to try it but I am going to line the inside bottom of the container with a few sheets of newspaper so I can lift the whole thing out at once and transplant it in tact.
I have been winter sowing for several years and have been very successful. Its so easy and much fun. I have found working with the sticky duct tape to be unnecessary. I punch three holes sort of evenly spaced with a paper punch, above and below the cut and secure the two edges with the wire twists like those used on bread. Its much less fuss to open and close the jugs in spring when the weather warms. I set the jugs on wooden pallets so that they drain freely. I really enjoy your blog.
It's not just birds which need your help but other wildlife too, and at Vine house Farm we have a great range of wildlife food and wildlife homes for gardens. A hedgehog house and hedgehog food make great additions to a true wildlife garden. Try a Bug Hotel, a Bat Box or a Butterfly Feeder to make more of a wildlife garden.
