    Training zucchini to climb

    I have a raised bed and a trellis (using the square foot gardener's directions) and I am wondering how to train my zucchini and pumpkins to climb it. Do I need to use twine to hold up the leaves (which are huge right now and shading out my garlic, onions, okra, and shallots)? My pumpkin plants do...

    Asparagus: No visible sprouting

    This is the 3rd week after planting, and with only 2-3" on soil over top, there has been no evidence of any sprouting. The first 2 weeks were very chilly, with frost on May 9. This week the weather has started warming, with the last few days in the 70's. Shouldn't I see some signs of life by now?

    Cucumbers having fungus issues

    I am about to completely give up on growing cucumbers upside down. It seemed like a good idea for saving space but it's just not worth it to have to deal with these fungus issues. Any organic solutions to fungus?

    Mesculin Mix Transplanted

    When I planted the seeds I just sprinkled them on a flat part of the soil in my raised bed. I also did a few rows to see which method I liked better. They both seem to work pretty well. I probably should have transplanted these last week but I kind of went into a coma after the dog went missin...

    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.
