    More cow manure questions

    I am a little worried about this. I took a hoe out there and it is pretty wet, maybe from weather and not fresh fresh, but lots of straw. I have got truckloads of horse or cow manure before and used in compost bins and let break down a long time. If I side dress kale, it will be a long time...

    I have usually just put seeds in the ground and I put cucumbers off usually until last so I can get plants in the ground. I almost planted cucumber seeds today but I think it is too cold. I am thinking about starting them in cups. I would like to get cucumbers before the summer is half over...

    I noticed a lot of seeds already out of stock at Baker Creek, especially lettuce and summer squash. I remember last year and how seeds were being bought up and it might be happening again.

    I copied this picture today and I was going to do this to keep cabbage worms and aphids down, but if you start your own Marigolds you have to trim them. The ones in the store are trimmed. Mine got tall and kind of fell over. I have not started Marigolds for the last 3 years or so, but I am...

    Pressed logs

    My brother said he wants to buy us an early Christmas present, a pallet of pressed logs. They are 8 pound logs, supposed to burn long and hot, and clean. Anybody have any experience with this? I do not want to upset him and say why not just buy a cord of wood instead. It seems expensive, but...

    When I started with the rabbits there were 5 dumped and one of them was pregnant and had 5 babies. Then, another neighbor dumped their pet rabbit named Snickers.

    What do you think

    I went out to work in the garden today and my neighbor I have not seen all summer comes out. He looks good and seems to feel good, smoking a cigarette, and smoke coming towards me and I smell it when he says to me he is doing better since having COVID in June. His son got it and tested positive...

    King David Phlox

    I have a couple of these phlox, several years old. I thought they would spread, but reading today about them, I have to dig and divide them. Does anybody know? If I do divide them when is the best time? I would like to use them as a border on the garden, which they are now, but too many...

    I have decided to use cardboard to cover the garden. I am going to put plastic around all four sides of the garden to kill weeds, and bury it I think and just keep around the edge. I went and looked at different areas around my yard where I have started compost bins or where I dumped piles of...
