    Fruit trees near Leach fields?

    I planted them already in a different spot, just seemed to be a better option to have them on the west side of the house in an open area, protected by some other tree's. So far so good, all have shot out leaves and look really happy - cept the dead stick Almond! I have sent the company their...

    New at this and late in the season, but thinking about...

    My season is even shorter than yours and I'm still planting stuff, I am planting a little every week so I will have stuff to harvest every week - things like carrots, broccoli and cauliflower... You might be able to buy plants already started!

    Oooooo I would love to, but they take years and years to get really nice looking, I was thinking about it a couple of years ago - using Boxwood, but its just too much work right now.

    Is it a skunk digging up my tree's?

    I do indeed have free range chickens, and guineas - I'm keeping an eye open today... Something dug up two of my new Burning bushes as well... I think that was rabbits by the look of it. I'm getting REALLY angry about all this digging up right behind me. :he

    Is it a skunk digging up my tree's?

    We just planted some little fruit tree's. Peach, pear, apricot.... For the past couple of days, something is digging down to the root area and really getting on my nerves, I don't know how much damage has been done, I keep having to cover up the roots again. I've put branches and logs etc...

    Anyone do hydroponics?

    :gig See my hubby isn't much of a salad eater, and the kids will eat tiny little pieces of lettuce with very long teeth! Mostly I'm going to try broccoli and cauliflower - those everyone will eat! I'm not sure how long they'll take, but we could go through a few of them easily. I might try...

    Anyone do hydroponics?

    I might try cucumbers, I bought seeds for a "container" cucumber, I'm not sure how big it will get. I've gotten so confused with all my plants, don't remember which is which on some of them. Most I do remember, but those dern Cauliflower and Broccoli seedlings look exactly the same! :D I...

    Anyone do hydroponics?

    :gig Thats true! I might worry about it getting a little chilly - we don't keep the house at 71 in winter, more like in the 60's...
