Been doing research on black flea beetles; which are making my greens like like some one peppered them with buckshot. Through the course of my current research I have realized that last year's popular saying from one of our community members does indeed apply:
"It's the soil stupid. "☺
My soil needs nematodes.

A fun chat with a bumblebee and watching my garden go from cool weather to warm weather stages.
This post includes many ridiculously awesome photos.  Prepare yourself for beautiful flowers, closeups of leaf venation, beanstalks twisting skyward in hopes of grasping something other than air,...

Our broom corn is is just about knee-high. In addition to red, this year we also planted a black variety. Looking forward to Halloween decorations! 
Hello everyone, John here with some garden updates. Things are wrapping up for the season and it's been an interesting year. Last winter's polar vortex damaged or eliminated most of our tree fruit production - no peaches or p...

Just add organic matter along with fungi and you get humic and fulvic acid.

Knowing when to harvest your vegetables at the perfect time can be a challenge. Too soon and you won't get the abundance your looking for, too late and you might not get the best taste. So how do you know?

 I am visiting our weekend getaway and decided to harvest a few veggies for some curry I plan to make when I return home. This small Square Foot Garden produces wonderfully, especially since it is rarely tended. I visit once a month in the spring, summer, and fall, so those are the only times it is watered & fed.

I picked enough cucumbers to make 2 pints of baby dills today. Yep, it's time to make pickles again so I thought I'd reshare my dill pickle recipe. Enjoy!
My brood goes through pickles like they are going out of style. They are also picky and only like two kinds, Clausen and homemade. Since the Clausen pickles can cost as much as $4 for a quart jar, I grow my own cucumbers and ...
