I'm a longtime gardener and suggest growing garlic. It's one of the easiest things for me to grow. I'm not sure of the timing for planting anywhere else, but here in So. New England we plant ~Columbus Day and harvest ~end of July.

It's been a "set it and forget" crop for me. Basically, you remove the individual cloves from the bulb and plant them root side down (pointy side up) about 2" deep, 6" apart, in rows ~12" apart, mulch w/ straw ~6" deep, water, and wait.

In the spring I spray it w/ some liquid nitrogen when the foliage is ~8" high. That's it, other than watering if nature doesn't provide.

Like anything else, homegrown garlic tastes 50x better than store-bought!

I've never had success with herbs grown indoors, but my outdoor herb gardens do great. My thyme, oregano and rosemary survive all year long. I have to replant the basil every spring.

Any ideas appreciated.


I only grow what I can grill. sounds like you got the basics, but add some squash and zucchini. easy to grow, slice long ways and sprinkle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar (I love to sprinkle cavendars on top of that), Great veggies for the grill

Gardening? I don't know much about it except what I learned from my farmer relatives and The University of Tennessee Department of Agriculture and Plant Sciences. I currently farm 2.5 acres of vegetables but have to cut back this next year because of some physical problems. Might have to sell a tractor or two also. My best advise to anyone interested in gardening is forget the magazines and such and go talk to your County Extension Agent. Tell he or she exactly what you want to due. Next would be a soil sample evaluation with recommendations. These folks know what they're talking about and it's their job to teach you. If that does not give excellent results I'll give you all the free information you want because it's my job too.

So far, I have the pellet gun set to stun but I am starting to feel a little like Bill Murray in Caddy Shack and might just start light'n-em-up with a full pump.

Peeing in the backyard is a Mans' God Given Right. In fact I see it as Being One With My Environment. I do try to limit it to the compost bin but it still makes me feel as though I am giving something back.

Moved 50 cement pavers in to position for the walls of the raised bed. Next step tear out what is there now.

I don't know how big you are going. But I have always wanted to get some of these and plant peppers in them.

This past year, we had quite a bit of success with potatoes, kale, cabbage, and garlic. We did get some tomatoes, but they weren't terribly big. Garlic was already planted for this spring (in late October)... looking forward to growing even more potatoes!
