Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Sam, im feeling great, was not sore at all. i was surprised.... i still wonder how much those 3.5' stones weighed. a lady with her husband at the stone yard just stopped and watched me for like a min, then came over and was like i can't believe your lifting that, don't they have help to do that. i was like they do but then i would not be getting my work out in Wink

i don't think i would ever have a month and a half open to do this work, maybe thats why it took 4yrs!!!

Well Kim went and raided my garden but did not get much Sad for some reason my Zucs are going bad/turning yellow and mushy... and my green peppers and sweet peppers are going brown and mushy on the ends, not getting larger then a golf ball before i just take them off. any one know what i might be doing wrong? i have been using fertilizer and watering every other day or when the leaves start drooping. my pumpkin is doing great as are my cucumbers and sherry tomatoes and roma tomatoes. eggplant is to small to know if they will be good or not. i think next yr im just going to buy the plants and not start from seed.... so much work with little reward this season, but my husband did not kill them while i was gone Smile

I'd have to say gourds as butternuts would be that lite tan color from start to picking. Love how plentiful that Roma tomatoes are.

Do not know if you are still reading this or if you are going to put in another garden. But you can use cleaned eggshells crushed under the rootball of your peppers and tomatoes and this will stop the ends from rotting. And peppers only like to be fertilized when they are planted and then again when they are harvested. You also want to take the flowers off them when they are immature so that the harvest later will have larger size. FYI. Hope this helps with 2013. Also, peppers are finicky about two much water.

Look forward to seeing the garden. Every year I try to learn a little more. Gardening is my relaxation if it grows great if not try, try and try again.
