I have a great growth of grapes in my garden(first time) but I do not know when to cut them for use at home and as gifts.Should they be cut raw or allowed to ripen on the plant?
Starting up my first kitchen garden, does anyone have any good tips?
Are there any uses for old corn meal - a little rancid smelling - hate to throw it out if it has any garden use. Veggies or lawn? TX
Any ideas for inexpensive supports for tomato plants?
Any tips on getting garlic to grow to maturity? Last year mine did not turn into anything...really wanna make it work this year!
What are the best/easiest ways to control weeds?

What tips do you have for frugal gardening?
ladybug eating aphids
What do you do when organic methods fail to correct a problem?
What natural methods can I use to control caterpillars?
What tasks should I be doing now?
We are going to install a greenhouse this year. We have a small piece of property, so can't use anything bigger than 6 X 8. Can anyone recommend good resources or companies? Any opinions on polycarbonate vs glass? Wood vs aluminum frame? I live in the Pacific Northwest (U.S.), so it rarely gets below 20 degrees in winter.
I have a 5X10 spot in our community garden, so far I have planned it out using the Kitchen Garden Planner and the Square Foot method, I was just wondering if this will be the most efficient way to grow and utilize most of the space that I have??
