Re: Got an antique cookbook?

I have my Great Grandma's Boston Cooking School cookbook. It doesn't have any copyright info in it. I love the ads in the back! There is one for King Arthur Flour. I copied it and sent it to them,...

Re: stunted cucumber vines

They have a trellis, but they're not really putting out tendrils like they're supposed to, for climbing.
Not using any commercial fertilizer. Used a little bit of epsom salt, and some blood meal,...

Re: Memorial Day: 1 guy told me..if you didn't see fighting, you really didn't serve.

A friend of ours did 3 tours in Viet Nam, in the artillery, and he has that same attitude. I'm sure it's not from being in 'Nam. It's probably just his own personality disorder. To him, unless...

stunted cucumber vines

Hi All!

Haven't posted much in a while. Been working and gardening! :)

Here's my problem: Cucumbers were started from seed back in Jan. Germination was great, little guys grew just fine and...

Re: Litchi Tomatoes

Thanks for that bit of wisdom about liming the blackberries. Wild blackberries would take over our yard if we let them! They are such a pain to keep cut back, though. Literally!

Re: What are you all doing for your gardens right now???

Praying for all that water to dry up before my plants succumb and the seeds rot! We got 8 inches in one night this past week. And that was after it had already rained a day and a half!

Re: Don't give Google free word-of-mouth advertising

OMG, I forgot about Frostie root beer! I used to love that stuff! Around here, if somebody said I want a coke, the next question is what kind?

I heard they were actually adding Google to the...

Re: Litchi Tomato Germination

I planted the first six in January. I had them under flourescent light and on a heating pad along with my tomatoes and peppers. After four weeks, no sprouting. So I planted 6 more. Of that...

Re: Do you care if GM and/or Chrysler fails?

The 4 choices given in your poll aren't really all inclusive. Ford etc. doesn't do my family a bit of good -- we own Dodges. No, I don't think we MUST have GM/Chrysler to survive, but if/when they...

Re: Loyd's Square-Foot Garden Photo Blog (Image Heavy!)

Lloyd, is that first ladybug on thyme or rosemary? I'm wondering why my thyme doesn't look like that. Love your blog. I'm dong a slightly modified SFG this year for the first time. Breaking it...

Re: For anyone who has had these: Who has the best fast food chicken sandwich?

Down here we have Zaxby's and they have the BEST chicken sandwich. (Even better than Chick-Fil-A) But since your poll said the best dollar value chicken sandwich I thought you meant the value menu...

Re: Hot zone gardening (8/9/10)

I don't really know what they were. They were just called hardneck and softneck. The first year I planted in November and they never made it through the winter. Last year I planted the previous...

Re: Beekeeping

I'd say go for it, too. Especially if you have a beekeeper friend to mentor you and give you hands-on training, and take them off your hands if you change your mind. It's a rewarding experience,...

Re: Chickens good for garden pests?

Yeah, when they have liberty to roam they don't stay in one place for very long. The damage is much more concentrated in a tractor.

Re: Ants in my kitchen!

For ants in the house, I use the little traps with the bait inside. I tried other stuff for them to carry back to the nest, but they just walked around in it and didn't die.

Re: Hot zone gardening (8/9/10)

I've tried garlic twice & both times failed. A friend told me that she heard garlic doesn't do well in hot humid areas. So, I stopped wasting money on it. What I grew last year had lots of leaves,...

Re: Chickens good for garden pests?

Mine love to dig in dirt, and when I've just put seeds in, I get aggravated with them. I've found that if I put something even as short as 2x4s around a bed they'll stay out of it though. They love...

Re: Why Are Melons so complicated?

Every year I try to grow cantaloupe, and every year I fail. I found a variety at BC recommended for the south, this year. (Modesta 242 - I think that's the right number). Apparently they don't...

Re: What do you like/not like, so far(that Obama has done)?

That reminds me of a joke, which is not really funny: What does Pres. Obama have in common with Pres. Lincoln & Pres. Kennedy? A. Nothing, yet.

Next time, throw out Millard Fillmore. Nobody...

Today is the day to stand an egg on it's head! I wonder if it's too late to do it now.

Re: FLEAS UGHHHH!

We used to give our dogs and cat brewer's yeast to keep fleas and mosquitos from biting them. The cat loved them. Daddy would tip the bottle and he would reach in and get himself one. :D

Re: Hot zone gardening (8/9/10)

Re: Test Your Gardening Knowledge

My own personal definition: if you would eat it as a side dish with supper, it's a vegetable. If you would eat it over ice cream for dessert, it's fruit. Very scientific, I know! :D
