I am totally aware that this post has nothing to do with Home Decor. But SERIOUSLY you guys are better than Google. So todays post is going to be a Q&A sesh about gardens. With me asking the questions.
This is part of our backyard:
Its not huge.
WHen you round the corner you see the garden area…
Which is huge, like 12x20.
I planted a garden 2 years ago and it was great, some things did not do so good and some were out of control (nothing like leaving on vacay for a few days and coming back to zucchini the size of logs…)
The first question that I have relates to watering. There are sprinklers that cover this entire area (because when we put them down we werent sure where the garden was going to be) Can I use those to water it? Or does it have to be a drip system or hand watering?
Question 2. When we had the garden 2 years ago I planted corn. It seemed like it was growing really really well and then when it came time to harvest all the ears were pretty much empty. Should I plant again and to see if they grow better this year?
Are the pants that you buy at a nursery better than ones that you would buy at like Home Depot or Lowes?
And last but not least, tell me all of your secrets. (of the garden variety thankyousomuch.)
I found this super great website this weekend that I spent HOURS on called Smart Gardener. It helps you plot out your garden and tells you lots of great info about growing stuff in your area. Do you guys have a site or book or info (other than the guys at Home Depot that you look to for info?)
Love Your Gardening Guts, Mandi
