I live in the city but have a raised bed that abuts the south side of my house. I've been growing tomatoes, onions, spaghetti squash and peas all summer, and am planning on creating a temporary greenhouse over the space to grow herbs, lettuce, etc. Any suggestions on materials/where to get them/what to grow? My living room window right above the bed, and my hope is that in the winter I can open the window and get some warm fresh air in from the greenhouse... But, it can't be a permanent structure because I'm renting... haha

Given we will have our first frost in about 6 weeks (maybe 8 if we are lucky but it will be cold) should I start picking the blossoms off my squash plants?

My backyard is mostly in a downslope and the soil is black clay and lime. I have been gardening for the last 5 yrs. but I noticed fruit trees do not do well. Anybody here who gardens in a downslope and the water does not drain down to the root of my plants. HELP!! any suggestions?

I was gifted 12 asparagus crowns this week, and would love to store them until fall when it's cooler (plus I can clear some room in my garden for them)... Is there a technique that might work for 2 more months?
