Re: Kathy's garden 2020

I snuck out into the garden at lunch today to get away from work for a minute and was so tickled to see my Taiga fruit growing like a weed. It’s so adorable. Also, Malinovaya Zebra has also finally put out buds. It and a volunteer have been my stragglers this year. MZ I’m growing for the Carolyn tr...

If he gets them, he'll send me a few seeds and - than I do make from the F1 one time seeds....this works, you cannot make from F2 seeds, that doesn't work.. 20200408_075258.jpg I have never ever seen a cucumber plant that produces so much as Taurus F1. So many more than Sweet Success. I planted 3 p...

Re: Stink Bug Information/ID

Last year was the first time I ever had leaf footed bugs in my garden. This year there were several. Ms.Cowpea posted thst she sprays the adults with cooking oil spray so they can't fly. It works!

Re: Building a Raised Bed

I do tomato yoga in mine. I like stretching. Likely there are places that will deliver soil in bulk if the beds are larger. Bagged soil gets expensive fast for larger beds and can easily cost more than the bed construction materials. I used my truck to get a cubic yard from the feed store. The feed...

I tried to buy the seeds from "Sweet Success F1" and Taurus F1, but I didn't get them.
Yes, this year it's been very hard. So many new gardeners because of Covid-19, and shipping expensive and very slow. I think Nico said he was going to buy some TaurusF1 for this year.

Re: asmx92 garden 2020

I thought, that you sent seeds to Nico and he sent half of them to me. This cucumber is the best I ate!!! and - very, very early. Ah yes! I did, but I didn't know Nico sent you half. Now I understand, lol! You should try TaurusF1 cucumbers, I like them even better than Sweet Success. They let so ma...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

A nice thing about the retaining stones is that instead of sitting on the ground and reaching in, you sit on top of the stone wall and it makes it much easier to reach. I put the cap stones they sell to match on top and it not only fishes the look, it is a nice place to sit. Great info! I didn't ev...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

I'm in the three foot wide club. I have 5 foot wide beds and they are a pain in the rear. Get ten foot lumber and trim the ends because I like things square. Two ten foot boards will get you ends for three raised beds with some scrap you can toss. Then you can get what ever length you want for the ...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

If you're building with lumber a 4 foot width is easy to do since standard length for construction is 8 ft. 4 ft is doable in terms of weeding and being able to reach the middle to weed, if you don't mind stretching. I have odd shapes and sizes because of using whatever scraps I had, and some beds ...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

@Ginger2778 As long as you can have access from both sides, I think that 4 x 10 foot would work. I have some that are 2 x 8 foot some that are 4 x 4 foot. The one that I made just this year is 42 inches x 90 inches, the reason for that size is the wood I had worked out that way. Most of mine are 12...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

First off my apologies for all the pictures... For wood your weakest point will be the corners where the screws are. that is why I use wood on the corners and screw them to each other. You can also use something like Karstopography used, I have used aluminum banding in the past with success. https:...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

I think I have them pretty well down pat for making them here in PA. Pull up the sod, fork it deep, add fertilizer, replace the sod upside down, build a wood box around it, fill it with compost/horse manure/perlite/fertilizer/some dirt. Expect to water a lot if it is dry, or add drip tape. Black mu...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

This is what I used, and it looks similar but is significantly less expensive. It doesn't look as high end, but has a lot of colors to choose from and I think still looks nice. Wish they had all those colors when I did mine. https://www.homedepot.com/p/4-in-x-11-75-in-x-6-75-in-Pewter-Concrete-Reta...

Re: Building a Raised Bed

This is pretty but expensive. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Mutual-Materials-RomanStack-83-in-x-39-in-x-12-in-Summit-Blend-Concrete-Raised-Garden-Bed-MS8339RRGSB1/313690937 You could do cheap concrete block and cap them off like they did in this very expensive kit. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Natural...
