    Random Plant.

    Photo-upload-125863?1333902923 We found this growing in one of our pots in the back garden. I'm not sure what was in the pot last year (if anything, it will have been a brassica of some sort), but we never emptied out the soil after. I have no idea what this is and was hoping someone would have an idea. :-)

    Can veggies be planted at the cottage?

    We have a weekend home and I would like to plant some tomatos. I wonder if anyone had experience with animals etc. Watering is not a problem - we have a sprinkler system.

They're all looking pretty good, but I feel like the stalks are awfully weak.

    still hanging in there...

    Photo-upload-126535?1333774811 well these two clary sage plants survived the ant/aphid attack and what seemed to be slugs attacking them. now there are little black bugs attacking them at night that move WAY faster than slugs. I haven't really been able to get a good look at them, but they're eating little holes in the leaves....

    Growing Cayenne Peppers in New England

    Has anyone grown cayenne peppers in the New England area (or specifically the Boston suburbs)? I have been reading about them and it seems like they need hot weather. I'm wondering if our weather is hot enough. Let me know. Thanks Kevin

    A question about carrots

    I won't officially label this as 'harvesting', we just picked a couple of babies because the kids (and I) were just too keen. But, like every attempt I've made before, these carrots are quite bitter. Better peeled, but still far from sweet like the ones in the shops. So of course my question i...
