    How do you compost your chicken poo?

    We have a large area and not a lot of shavings at once, so it really balances out in the long run. Our soil is very acidic, so every bit of nitrogen helps.

    Greenhouses and/or Indoor Growing Discussion

    We grew all sorts of stuff in it the first spring. We used it to start our veggies early, and I used it to store a bunch of my plants, mostly stuff that wouldn't survive the cold very well. I made the mistake of leaving the bottom vent open, so the cats would get inside and knock everything...

    How do you compost your chicken poo?

    I've seen zucchini do that...miss one day, and you could make a canoe out of one! :lau I used to just toss it out in the garden area to set for the winter, then till it all under in the spring. Nowadays, I have an old broken down wheelbarrow that I'm dumping it, but I have to lay some wire...

    Where do I start?

    You can take a square area, fence it in on three sides with chicken wire, and use that as a compost heap. You need to turn it with a shovel or pitchfork every day or two to keep the process going. My MIL used to get the city to dump mulched Christmas trees in a spot at the beginning of the...

    Saucer and Southern Magnolias

    I know some need a certain amount of cold stratification before they sprout, but not certain how much. I have a sweetbay magnolia that I have seeds for that I put in the freezer awhile back. They need at least 3 months of cold to sprout properly.

    Who has a family garden?

    We have a fenced in garden area, but we didn't do anything with it this year. Before, we had all sorts of veggies going, including watermelons, but when the hubby opened his business, we didn't have the time to do it. He's talking about trying again this spring, so maybe we'll get some fresh...

    Gonna start one here, so this forum don't look empty

    I love Mr. Lincoln and any purple ones. I have Paradise, Angel Face, and one other deep burgundy purple I can't remember the name to. Queen Elizabeth does well for me, too.

    Newbie Rose Garder

    Okay, so maybe I'm not new, but I sure can't seem to get the hang of growing a good bush. With the exception of one that I ignore, none of the ones I have are doing very well. What can I do for feeble established roses aside from yanking them up and torturing new ones?
