Will you be planting a home garden in your yard this year?
Because of the concern over food GMOs and food additives, are you planning a truck garden for your home? Will the work involved in raising your own food be worth it?
I plan to plant a garden that has everything for a salad. I'm going to use garlic plants, radish plants, and marigolds to stave off the little woodchucks that live way in the back of our yard. I also think I need some sort of fence too, because we do have deer that hang around back there. When I put up a short little chicken wire fence it wasn't tall enough, so I'm going taller on the fence this time.
An herb garden, yes. A vegetable garden, no. Hopefully, next year though. My husband has the green thumb and loves gardening. But I wanted to make sure I could handle it in case he went out of town, so this is my learning year.
I have flower gardens in my yard, as well as a lettuce garden and last year I grew tomatoes and red chili peppers in containers, this year doing both and trying cucumbers in a container. I have some artichoke seeds and asparagus seeds I am going to plant too. I have a small yard, so I have a budding interest in learning more about container gardening for my vegetables. I also have a rabbit, and this will save some for me in the process too.
I grow a small vegetable and herb garden every year (more because of the flavor of home grown over store bought then any GMO or other food worries) I have a grape, a raspberry, lemon tree and orange tree as well. I can grow enough produce through the year to make it to where I rarely have to buy the types of produce I grow so I think its worth it. I usually end up pickling, canning or preserving some of it and give a lot of them away.

GARDENERS! What do I do about a flooded garden?I moved into this cute little farm house a few months ago, and held off planting any bulbs for the spring to see how badly it flooded during the winter. It's it bad so far, but it's flooded. Any recommendations?
