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


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?
just registered with KGI; I would like to know what I need as products to start growing as survival foods that can be preserved for survival food? Basically what seeds do I buy to begin growing?

The leaves on my tomatillo plants have been turning yellow and dropping off. They're both still setting fruit and the fruit seems to be growing, but I'm worried the plants have some sort of virus. I thought at first they were just reacting to all the rain we've had recently, but fertilizing is not helping. Anyone know what this could be?
What is this fruit?
