I’ve been gardening a long time.
I’ve tried so many methods and have had a lot of failures but a lot of successes too.

I see a lot of people doing things the hard way. What do you want to know? If I don’t know the answer
Maybe someone here does.

We might all need to survive off our gardens the way prices are going, and if we don’t want to be poisoned.

So ask away! 🪴

Spring, and I do have a green bean secret.
Alway grown them on something slanting. I like to do mine on pyramid obelisks.
The green beans will hang inside the structure in shade, while the leaves will all be outside and the beans will be prolific.
It’s also very nice looking.

You can make a tipi with poles kids love to play under the beans, just make them understand they're poisonous when uncooked...

Any herbs will work, but for a best friend I suggest heirloom marigolds. It has to be the kind that stinks.

I did but just chose to ignore it and focus on actual gardening questions.
There is very little I’ve forgotten about gardening since it is my year round hobby/obsession.

I had to look up it, and it says he died from spraying and inhaling pesticides.
I think that’s incorrect, he died from not reading and following the instructions on it!

Quite common, I see people spraying it without gloves, wearing shorts on windy days all the time.

Here’s another tidbit about pesticides, in some states homeowners can do whatever whenever with pesticides but if ANYONE
Other than the homeowner does it they need to have training and a license.
That’s right, you can spray roundup all over your yard, but if you take that same bottle and ask a college kid doing yard work to spray it you both could be breaking the law.

Do you add compost to your garden ?

Yes, and I make my own two ways.
I have a tumbler, and I have a sunken area I just layer things.

In my tumbler I’m very selective about what I put in there.
I try to be as organic as possible.

I think if you are using garden for food an appropriate question is what plants stop cats from using the freshly dug ground as a toilet?

The only part of my garden I don’t use compost is on some of my herbs, they like poor soil.

No, that was Jeff Pocaro, who died that way.

John "Stumpy" Pepys, a drummer for Spinal Tap, according to authorities at the time (1966), died in "a bizarre gardening accident" that was "better left unsolved".

Pesticide poisoning would not be something better left unsolved, but would rather serve as a warning to take care with chemicals while gardening.

So, the mystery remains!

I'm only allowed to grow 8 cannabis plants. What strain is the best for a large harvest to maximize my efforts?
And is Foxfarm all it's cracked up to be? And is worm castings, molasses and fish emulsion a good tea recipe as opposed to a compost tea?

S&F for a subject near and dear to my heart. My GF only grows asparagus for sale at the local farmers market on her 1/2 acre she only allows me a very limited space.

Lantana, jasmine, petunias. Just about every tropical colorful flower!

Thanks...I knew about lantana for butterflies, but not Jasmine.
Never liked petunias...but if the Hummers like 'em I'll put up with them.

I have a prickly pear cactus sharing a 1.2 ft planter with hens and chicks (succulents)

My cactus turned purplish on some of its arms, but my succulents look phenomenal.
What is the best watering schedule for them? Can they all be watered at the same time?

I’m currently watering them about once every week to week and a half.
Do I need to water more often?
Or even less in the winter?
