• What plant is this growing in my yard?
  • Are cages interchangeable?

    Long story short, Lowe's has an end of the season sale of sorts for plant cages, specifically tomato cages. Nothing special at all, just 33 inch circular galvanized steel cages for $1.98 a piece.

I'm looking to get like 20-25 of them but my question is, do you think these will work just with tomatoes or can I use them for say, eggplants and peppers and possibly tomatillo's too? I'm not looking for anything that's gonna give me 10 pound yields, just something that keeps them off the ground and gets the job done.

  • Are Heirloom vegetables good for beginning gardner's?

    I started a garden and composter for the first time this year and it has been absolutely rewarding, even with some setbacks. I really want to grow Heirloom vegetables because I could easily obtain GMOs from my groccery store. Are Heirloom vegetables harder to grow for beginning gardner's?

  • Images for building a wood privacy fence around a tree.?

    Best answer: If a fence encroaches a property line, in that the owner put it on the property line, it becomes the property of BOTH property owners. You cannot reasonably tear up a fence, but that is what title insurance is for, to make sure their are no encumberances on the property. Also that any fence has the proper permits.... show more
    Best answer: If a fence encroaches a property line, in that the owner put it on the property line, it becomes the property of BOTH property owners. You cannot reasonably tear up a fence, but that is what title insurance is for, to make sure their are no encumberances on the property. Also that any fence has the proper permits.

    As a first step I would talk to homeowner insurance, then the realty before talking to the title company. Three feet is a LOT of land to have a fence on the wrong side. Now that you know, you need to act in a reasonable time period to correct the problem, or the argument can be successfully made that allowing it to stay is giving permission.

    I would also call the county and have them come out and inspect teh fence for code complaince. Once its rebuilt, if whomever is paying for it wants to maintain exclusive control needs to have it set back at least a foot into their own property.

    The tree is the least of the problems. But I wouldn't put a fence right up next to a tree, but simply build an indentation to accomomdate the tree and its root ball at least five feet back for every 1 foot of trunk.

    Hi! So I've literally never grown anything in my life, ever. But I want to start a healthier lifestyle and I feel that would help. I have a little area I could gate off. What supplies would I need? The ground is pretty hard. Would I have to till up the whole thing? Add more soil? What could I plant? Can you only do it certain times a year? Could I use chickens to eat the bugs instead of pesticides? I live in Texas, where it's very hot and rarely rains, if that matters. Thank you!

  • Basil leaf question?

    Does anyone know how to store fresh basil leaves? I started a herb garden outside and I have two sizable basil plants, however due to a number of circumstances I barely used any of the leaves. Can I dry them in a dehydrator? Can I freeze them? What can I do with them?

  • What to do about a neighbor who put up a double fence?

    So a new neighbor in the house behind mine put a new fence up with my fence already there to begin with. Both are chain link fences. The grass that is getting in between it is getting out of hand. Not sure how to handle the situation. I have never even met the neighbors behind me.

  • Should I add worms to my garden?

    Best answer: If you use compost in your raised bed and provide organic amendments, once per month, during the winter, the worms will come (assuming the bottom of your bed is open soil). Don't use chemical amendments if you want to attract worms and other beneficial living things to your garden beds.

  • Why are leaves and full branches of healthy leaves falling off my lemon trees?

    Best answer: If stressed they will drop leaves, fruit and in extremis branches. It's the tree trying to survive. Lemon trees are more sensitive to the cold than other citrus, and need protecting from frosts. That might be what has happened.
