    White sage seeds germination problem *grumbles*

    I don't get it. Sources online say that white sage seeds are easy to germinate, (especially?) if heat-treated. Tried that. Sowed in all sorts of conditions. They ALWAYS grow fuzzy white fungus on them. Got the seeds from ebay, and the seller feedback was good. Have sprayed diluted baking soda ...

    RIP Sugar Snap Peas

    They've fallen victim to powdery mildew, and I've finally accepted their fate. At least I know how to prevent it next year. Question: I cut them off at ground level (I read that you want to keep the roots for the nitrogen), but because of the powdery mildew, should I pull those out as well? ...

    Oh deer!

    Photo-upload-128282?1333903351 As I was prepping some seeds to mail out, I heard my cat crying in the front room, which faces my front yard. Expecting one of our neighbors cats (which is what he's usually crying about), I went out and to my surprise it was not a cat but a large deer. Nibbling on one of my rose bushes. I too...

    Uh-oh! What not to do with bees lesson #2

    Photo-upload-128245?1333903349 Tonight we did our first visit to the new beehive around 7 p.m., mainly to check to make sure the queen had been released from her cage and that she was laying eggs. This time the smoke worked like a charm and the bees were cooperative. I was able to see the tiny eggs with the help of a flash...

    Transplanting cukes question

    Photo-upload-127823?1333903273 My not-so-little cucumbers need to be potted up, and I finally got some 6" pots to move them to. However! As you can see in the picture they're ranging from 2.5"-3.5" tall, and I was wondering if I should be covering some of the stalk when I transplant them? I'm hoping to do this tomorrow, so any...

    Scared for my plants-Roof on House being redone this upcoming weekend.

    Wish I could build cages around them. Perhaps some inverted boxes may help? Just know from past experience that roofers are notorious for the disregard of the area surrounding the house when they throw things off the roof. Any ideas?

What's my plant?
