You can grow your own food. And we can help!


Hi Folks, I have a question about appropriate ground cover around some raised beds.
I live near the cost in Southern California (Long Beach) and had these beautiful berries crop up near my black raspberries. It looks like the black currants that my grandmother used to pick. Not sure. Help!?!?
Can we archive back dated e-magazine of KGI in this new site!!

How to leverage gardeners to support local food pantries?
Hi, I've started to grow my own salad veggies a month ago, so I'm a beginner. One of the herbs I planted was salad rocket. I have struggled to find information about what time of the year you should plant it so I planted it a month ago, in October (spring in South Africa - lots of rain). I read that once it flowers, that's it, the plant will start tasting bitter and you'll need to buy more seedlings. My one month old rocket (one of 5) is already about 30cm tall and it's flowering! I would like to know if anyone has tips for growing rocket and to growing more seedlings yourself instead of having to buy it every time. Many thanks, Luiza

I have a small backyard garden and love to plant tomatoes. I had a problem with my plants this year, I think blight. Since I don't have a lot of room to rotate where I plant, is there something I can do to prepare the soil for next spring's planting?
