I'm trying to do a better job with my garden...though last year was my best by far, it's still laughable compared to what most of you are doing!
I've been reading the recent and older posts and have a few questions:
- The square foot garden book seems highly recommended. I have a ton of space... but will still be checking the library for it. What others are recommended? I like to read...but have limited time.
- Potato resources? I've read a few online pages about how to grow and care for them, as well as tips on here...
-Buying plants/seeds: What is the best/cheapest/quality option here? For beans/corn/etc seeds, should I pick those up at a grocery store? at a garden store? Order online? And what about live plants? In my other "hobby" (dogs!), pet supply stores are known to be very overpriced...
-From seeds: It sounds like it's way too late for a lot of that this year... my things growing from seed are doing okay but not all that well.... what type of soil should I have used for this? Is there an easy way to do the heat lamps? Is that something I should buy "at the end of the season"?
-I've seen several references on here to peas being a "cold weather" plant but "southern peas" being warm weather. What are "sugar snap peas"? regular? southern?
