>>2587039WHAT PLANT IS THISREEEEEE
My main veg patch is in a field so I don't really have any issues with weeds. But I dug this patch next to the house last year to use for herbs and stuff and its proximity to flowering trees and bushes is making weeding a massive ball ache. This is 3 weeks after completely weeding the plot, it's fully covered again.I really don't want to cut back/down any of the other plants here, is there anything else I can do to suppress this growth long enough for my seedlings to survive?
>>2586700update: literally woke up to the fat bastard munching on my blueberries right under my windowcurrently wondering if I'm gonna get an air gun (already have a bunch of real ones but neighbors are kinda close) or make a noose
>got a multiple graft plum tree>most are full of leaves and have a few flowers>one doesn't even have budsoh no
my potatoes are kind of fucked i think.>ordered some pontiac red seed potatoes>diced them up (ensuring at least 1 or 2 eyes were on each chunk)>planted them in fresh garden soil back in march>covered with bark mulchhere it is almost june, and NOT A SINGLE FUCKING ONE has sprouted or shown any signs of growth.is it time to repurpose that section of the garden? is it too late to try planting them again?(SW Oregon, 7b i do believe)
Capsicum rhomboideum clone has leavesthis is a distant cousin to the everyday pepperit has 26 chromosomes instead of regular peppers 24peppers have no heatTastes like fucking malt of all thingspeople dry them and use them for bakingit can get 8 feet tall and 8 feet wideit tolerates cold to 32 FIt is now my desk plant
>>2587182It's a wild pepper from Brazil
Am I crazy or are those strawberries growing on my terrible "lawn"
>>2587222They look like them. Probably the wild ones that are tiny as heck but also tasty to the point you don't care for domestic any more.
Anyone tried growing vast amounts of catnip? I want to do it but I'm concerned about having a bunch of feral cats fucking in my backyard.
>>2587254>has the chance to open cat orgy brothel in his backyardWhy would you be against getting some "pussy"
>>2587247Hell yeahIktf, my grandpa had those all over the place and they're leagues above pretty much all other strawberries I've tried
>>2586449The decomposing pots are complete scam so corpos can sell you old paper and, in my experience, they don’t even decompose in one season. If you must have decomposing pots just make your own with newspaper.But honestly just by plastic pots that you can use over and over again. I’ve never had problems removing plants from them.
Does anyone have any experience with urban growing? I recently got an allotment and tested the soil, came back as having 250 ppm of lead, not ideal. From what I've read though at those concentrations I can wash and peel thoroughly and the veg will be ok to eat. Anyone got any experience with lead in the soil? I was also planning on having chickens but heard they will take in the lead and it will end up in the eggs.
>>2587481Research and grow lead hyperaccumulators for a couple of seasons, dispose of the foliage, and retest the soil to see if the lead dropsOr just grow things that are not edible like flowersA google search suggests Agrostis
>>2587131Dig a few up and see if any roots formed or they just rotted, you could probably get away with replanting if you do it asap.
>>2587039this joke isn't funny anymore!
>>2587131>>diced them up (ensuring at least 1 or 2 eyes were on each chunk)Did you let the skins heal for a couple of days?How big were the chunks?>is it time to repurpose that section of the garden?Dig up a section carefully and see what the potatoes are doing, is there root development, is it just dead whats going on, take pics.also how deep are they, how much mulch did you use, what were the temps during the time they were in?>>2587222looks like strawberries>>2587471I avoided some dates to ploont some more. When people asked me why I told em it's a fruitless endeavor, while plooting some more always yields results.
It's come to my attention that it is possible to graft a peach scion to a plum rootstock, maybe.I'd like to learn grafting anyway, and I have basically a plum grove in the back of my yard, just basic American native plum I think (except for a Chickasaw plum I planted back there for cross pollination). Also got a Florida developed 'Tropic Prince' peach. Should I go for it? Is it likely to succeed? My main worry is the plums are largely in some bright morning sun but now it's mostly dappled shade since the bigger trees leafed out. Plums of course do fine in this, but the peach loves full blast bright all day sun. Should I try to dig some of the plum runners up and keep them in pots in a sunnier area for this?Also once I've got some practice and more confidence in grafting I want to get some other plum varieties to add to the biggest plum tree. Also got some figs I'd like to try grafting other fig varieties on.So any tips tips or general guidance for grafting and such arboricultural fuckery?
>>2587546its 52F right now in Maine. Total winter death
Anyone know about prickly pears? I've been wanting to get one, and they grow wild where I am, despite the humidity. But I only just found out there are tons of varieties and figure buying a high quality named cutting would be better than a random wildling, but they're all from California or more arid parts of Mexico, whereas I'm on the Gulf Coast. What are the odds they'd do okay here? None mention being good for wetter climates, only cold hardiness.
>>2587595last average frost date was 2 weeks ago, might have to plant warm plants 1 month after average frost date if I hope for them to not die during the night
>>2587550regarding potatoes:>How big were the chunks?roughly 1"x2" wedges>Did you let the skins heal for a couple of days?I did, after cutting them i put them in a paper bag (indoors, ~70F for 2 days)>also how deep are they, how much mulch did you use, what were the temps during the time they were in?4-5" deep, fresh bark chip mulch, and this might be the issue: I planted in early april and we got a few days of freakish snow in the mornings, with a low of like 35f)i dug up a few of them and most were completely devoid of new growth; but a few had these tiny little purple nodules coming out of the eyes, so maybe they'll be okay. (I didin't have my phone with me, so no pictures -- and they've already been replanted)
Don't grow thorned plants. This blackberry bush keeps beating me up
>>2587676>roughly 1"x2" wedgesone inch? thats quite small. Well if they aren't growing it could be that its too cold for them?If the soil is cool, I imagine they are less likely to sprout.And if you mulch, it will keep the soil from warming up faster (though it does retain moisture, and also keep up extreme cold out)My potatoes that I planted 2 weeks before last frost came up in 3 weeks total.though supposedly there will be another frost in 2 weeks so maybe that is their and my mistake.>>2587694how are thorns real lmao just pick the fruit without touching them
>>2587598They should be fine just place them in a good sunny place with well draining soilSitting in standing water will make them rot
>>2587704thanks anon, i'll keep that in mind for next season; last few seasons i've just planted the entire seed potato, this was the first year i tried dicing them.it's in the 70's now, so hopefully they survived the early spring cold snap and will start sprouting.cheers!
>>2587708if they are in the dirt and covered by umlch all of the buffers outside temps and they shouldn't freeze and die below.
>>2587694>thorned plants>blackberryTry harder.
>>2587718there appear to be sea urchins growing on that tree.what happened?
>>2587706That's what I figure, going to put them in a large container of some sort with sandy well draining soil, since my yard is a bit too rich probably. Half of my front yard gets full sun all day and isn't being used for much right now, might as well make it productive with some fruiting plants.
>>2587585>it is possible to graft a peach scion to a plum rootstockYes, you can graft most species of the prunus genus on each other.Some combinations are known to work better than others, in EU the cherry plum is commonly used general-purpose rootstock.Peaches are also commonly grafted on peach seedlings.>grafting ... Should I go for itDefinitely yes.>Is it likely to succeed?It's slowly getting the right time for budding. Peaches are usually grafted by budding. >Should I try to dig some of the plum runners up and keep them in pots in a sunnier area for this?I'd recommend to graft first, then move if the graft succeeds and heals well (so at least in three months).Grafting on weakened plant is less likely to succeed. A year in shade won't matter for the peach.Also, in summer it's better to graft when the rootstock is actively growing (and is not water/weather/… stressed)>tips or general guidance for grafting1) check which type of graft yields best chance to succeed in your case2) watch a few youtube videos3) use razor-sharp knife4) get straight, clean cuts5) cambium of the rootstock must touch cambium of the scion6) you don't need super-graft-tape, even cling film is fine for wrapping grafts7) success depends on a chance, but using right tools, right graft type, right time, high precision etc. boosts your chance to succeed
>>2587719>sea urchinsUrchins don't have thorns on their thorns...Look at these stock photos of the glorious plant:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Gleditsia_caspica#/media/File:Fabaceae_Gleditsia_caspica_3.jpghttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Gleditsia_caspica#/media/File:Gleditsia_caspica_002_Tehran_Botanical_garden_2016.jpg

Do non-binary mulberries really self-pollinate and bear fruit?I know that nurseries tell you that they do, but I learned the hard way that most nurseries know shit about mulberries.And I know that mulberry pollen can travel really far, thus the question: does anyone know if a non-binary white mulberry out of wind range from other mulberries will self-pollinate?
>>2587471I'm turning into this guy.
>>2587481You can grow potatoes and some other plants there for a few years to clean up the lead. Don't eat them, just throw them out.

Good home defense plants? My backyard backs up to a wide maintenance/access road. I'm going to have a fence in the back but want something to plant on either side that will stab and block anyone who tries to get passed it. I live in Florida.

Anything wrong with putting cum tissues in the compost? Already put toenail clippings in. I want my seed to nourish my seeds.
>no rain for two weeks>no rain on the forecastany tips that dont involve me pumping my well dry again?
>>2587943The only problem with that is what could be in the tissue. Cum is all organic so perfect for compost, same as shit and piss.
>>2587924Thanks anon. Have a snek that was in my garden
What is some common gardening wisdom that you ignore and why?I never break up root balls when I’m transplanting starts into the ground. I’ve never observed it to be helpful to break up a root ball, in fact I think I’ve observed the opposite. I almost never have transplant shock anymore or lose a plant to it. But that may be due to my skills as a gardener increasing with time
>>2588022I don't let my seedlings get used to the outside. I plant them right off the bat at the end of the day so the sun don't go too harsh on them but the next day and after they better suck it up
>>2588030Same. I generally lose a few leaves to sun scalding, but rarely a whole plant, and it saves me tons of labor from hardening off
>asparagus beetle crawling in my raised bed>Is surrounded by the decapitated corpses of his speciesFuck these bugs.
These peppers have been afk for like a month now.I've transplanted them from their starting trays about a week or so ago, and was disappointed by their root growth (compared to lettuce, onion, and even basil).Mix in this pot is tomato compost and some small gravel.I water once every other day, currently getting temps of 9°C at night to 26°C in day.I've tried adding seaweed fertiliser 3 weeks ago but didn't notice much improvement.They get most of the sun all day, but were previously on sunny windowsill.
>>2588052For reference, these are them over 5 weeks ago under a grow lamp

What's wrong with my potatoes
Would you guys have any generalized recs for woodland garden-ish bushes in zone 4b? I'd like to spice up a bit the grassy areas between my trees and I don't know ornamental plants and flowers very much>inb4 pussy jokes
>>2588217Bats I think. Other insects like dragonflies and damselflies. Toads and frogs.
>>2588288Looks rotten bro. Probably disease.
>>2588375What happened to my potatoes?
sun burn would be my guess
>>2588374How do I dragonflymaxx? I want total mosquito death, roundhouse kick a mosquito into a damselfly pit. If you know what I mean.
>>2588484that would be the logical answer given the small timeframe. Heres the real question, why?These potatoes emerged themselves gradually, it's not like it was babied at first.The sun intensity was on the milder side, it wasnt as hot or as sunny as it could be. Even I didn't get sunburned.So why did this potato self emerge and lmao get burned by the very thing it seeks.Potato is like uuhhhh this sun is too spicey.Not enough root development to pump enough water to the tops to keep them safe?
>>2588499Is that chives?
>>2588506Mine came in nicely. Going to harvest the seeds and do an entire bed of them.
>>2588506>>2588512I have no idea what they are, I just noticed something was growing that looked like onions and they went into bloom, but the color of them is different from typical onions.Based on these images which look extremely similar to what I have, I guess it's "chives" then.
>>2588042mind you I disregard shit like this yet I try to follow the lunar calendar as best I can. Go figure
>>2587039Hey boys! Got my hops rhizomes growing, and a small 4x10 barley patch (testing 4 types of barley). So far, so good. Whatever barley goes best, will get a much larger plot next year. Hoping to make beer "the hard way", and getting away from soulless BIG beer
>>2588258>>2588259Nice! I have 4 malt barley cultivars growing (sprouting) now. I may try a rye next year. Mainly trying to produce small batches of beer that I grew myself. Hobbies colliding... also to get away from soulless overpriced beer.
>>2588609I'm mainly doing rye because of winter hardiness, soil improvement, cover crop, and lastly sour dough bread that is home made. But for that I need far more than these test plots, I'm merely seeing what conditions it needs to germinate, sprout, grow, which conditions produce what kind of yield and so on.I avoid all alcohol.
>>2588610That's awesome, anon! I'm basically doing that with my malt barleys; just a small plot to see what will do best in Newfoundland. I have two "2-row" varieties, and two "6-row". I want to see what yields I can get (if any), and try threshing and seed saving. Being a Newfoundlander and all, we have a large drinking culture, doomed since birth. I've cut back drinking ten fold, to the point where I do not want to give my money to BIG BEER and government. I feel if I can pull this off, my ancestors will be looking down on me smiling, saying "good on ye, my sweet b'y!"
>>2588619I imagine without distilling, old beers were like 3% alcohol or something, the stuff people regularly consumed instead of water.In my case hopefully homemade bread will be healthier than the stuff at the store, mainly due to the grains beings grown without fertilizer or any kind of biocides.
>>2588622Yeah, I've watched some interesting YouTube videos of people recreating old "gruit" and "braggot" and "mead" recipes. Early ales too! Interesting.Yes, I'd imagine when you pull off your experiment, you'll have a very healthy and nutritious product. Even avoiding the roundup of chemicals sprayed will be so beneficial. I will see how my grain goes; maybe I will attempt that next year. Have you thought about trying other grains for your project, like buckwheat, wheat, spelt, emmer/einkorn, etc?
Leaf curling usually indicates overwatering, but could also be low nutrients isn't that right? I did a (potting) soil test and my EC was somewhere around 1,2.
>>2588624>Have you thought about trying other grains for your project, like buckwheat, wheat, spelt, emmer/einkorn, etc?I'v tried buckwheat, but it's miles different than rye.Buckwheat cannot tolerate frost at all, instantly dies to it.Harvesting buckwheat is also more troublesome than rye.Great for polinators and all, but in my climate, rye fills the niche much better.Quick to germinate and grow though.Wheat is eh... I mean why use it over rye?>spelt emmer/einkorn, etc?I'm not sure where I'd get those unless I order online, whats the benefits other than being ancient variety?
>>2588052>>2588053Your soil is anuspeppers grow in the fucking desert m8they need well draining soil with small particulate matterthat mix is good for a tree or a mater but dog shit for peppersThey are waterlogged to hell and backyank one out and you'll find these hard little root systems that didn't expand You basically gave your pepper waterboarding torture for a monthalso a week of transplant shock is normal but transplant shock can be avoided when you use kelpGet those niggers out of that dog shit soil and give them some well draining shutor add pull out your peppers add playsand and perlite mix it up and then put em back and watch em explode>old pic they are now double this
Just finished burning all of the fucking vibes and excess tree trimmings from the backyard. Now I've got a fire pit filled to the brim with ash and charcoal. Anything I can do with this or do I just toss it?Also fuck rats. Leave the trimmings out for a few days and start finding rat droppings all over the place. I hope the little niggers get eaten by a falcon now that their cover is gone.
>>2588674You've got some garden gold on your hands anon.Short answer: Piss on itLong answer: Diluted urine mixed with wood ash forms a fertilizer that's been tested to be about as good as chemical fertilizers. Charcoal is a fantastic soil amendment that makes dirt hold water and nutrients better and lasts for centuries without degrading much; for best results it's recommended to soak it in some sort of diluted fertilizer before using it, so once again diluted piss comes in. Recommended dilution ratio for both is 1 part piss to 20 parts water.
>>2588674If it’s just wood / brush ash (vs charcoal briquettes) you can use it to lower acidity in soil. If we weren’t already in tinderbox conditions I’d have a burn pile going myself :/ (it’s not even June, wtf)
I don't really know who to ask, but since i used to post here i know most are kind maybe i'll get some feedbackSo, told this girl i'm seeing i'm into homegrowing stuff, tomatoes, salad, herbs, melons and so on, she told me she gets very turned on by the idea of me working in the garden, lawnmowing, pulling weeds and so onI'm perplexed, i usually tell girls about this hobby because it hints a lot into what kind of person i am but i didn't expect this replyIs it a red flag? A green flag? Do i deserve this?
>>2588698Women don't care about hobbies. But if she tells you she gets turned on, she want wood.
>>2588698You’re over thinking this. She’s just flirting with you dumdum
>>2588698I haven't had any kind of substantial interaction with a woman since 2012
>>2588698Plant your tuber and sow your seed into that fertile.. soil

>>2588701>>2588702>>2588704>>2588713>>2588714>>2588716Now i do truly see, thanks for your help hgmJust to contribute a bit, this year i tried hay mulch because i was tired of the plastic sheet destroying and finding pieces into the soil, currently seems to work very well, is there anything i should be aware of? My main concern is that it keeps raining and i wouldn't want the rotting to produce some annoying germ
>>2588698Fuck your girl out in the dirt in the garden, all sweaty and messy... Pretty hot ngl.Also, on topic... I've got a banana plant in a container it's got a bunch of pups and shit. Should I separate them when I put it in ground, or just leave it in a clump?
>>2588719>Just to contribute a bit, this year i tried hay mulchI do like it when there is a bush of hay covering the important bits. You know, to keep the moisture in. Makes it easier to stick tubers into the soil.>currently seems to work very well, is there anything i should be aware of? serious reply: Avoid buying or getting any kind of mulch from others that may be sprayed with herbicides or other chemicals. It's not FREE mullch all of the time, some of the times it comes with forver chemicals that can stay in the soil for years, decades. So be very careful about that.Oh and on a minor note, weed seeds can be imported through hay. So not as devastating but still something to consider.>>2588723>Fuck your girl out in the dirt in the garden, all sweaty and messy... Pretty hot ngl.This, I want to have my female walk up to me in a summery light dress and bare feet feeling the soil. Then me notice she isn't wearing panties and push her down on the ground right then and there>ahhh but honey the turnips...>I want them to watchand have absolutely messy, dirty plowing. Later on take my time washing her clean slowly and careful, taking my time.Naturally none of this will happen because women like that don't exist.
>>2588728Thanks for hint, i bought hay from some grandpa that specified it to be weed free and without any sort of chemicals, obviously i didn't have the means to check if true but that's thatI'm kinda weary about that since a friend got some free manure from local cow farm only to later know that they've been fed grass with chemicals that passed into their poop and killed all of his veggies and made the ground unusable for 3 years>>ahhh but honey the turnips...>>I want them to watchUnironically laughed out loudly
>>2588734>I'm kinda weary about that since a friend got some free manure from local cow farm only to later know that they've been fed grass with chemicals that passed into their poop and killed all of his veggies and made the ground unusable for 3 yearsthat as well. In general any input you add to your garden needs to be "safe". This is the reason I am not that keen on composting all the food we get from the store, or if I had a chance to get free waste food form a restaurant to compost for instance.I have no idea what the vegetables and fruit and what not was sprayed with before it was served, eaten, thrown away or whatever.It's also the reason I don't peemaxx by getting outside pee for fertilizer.Cause people eat all kind of garbage, consume mad amount of meds and pills that who knows break down into what.I know what I eat, I eat as clean as possible and my pee is safe to use, so as limited as it is, at least I can rest easy I'm pumping some hormones into the ground for me to later consume from my well water.Anyway I'm growing for my own consumption and the entire point is to have clean food for once.Since I'm not trying to maximize profit I can avoid doing things like pumping chemically laced waste food into my compost, or sewer fat as my cooking oil.Oh an on that note, FUCK store apples. The lot of them taste like shit. Are waxy as shit. Probably have that chemical in them that prevents their breakdown(they can keep apples looking new for up to a year).Apples fresh from the tree and store bought don't even compare.
>>2588626Ah I see. I just mentioned those grains because I was curious if you were growing or tried growing anything besides the rye. I think I will have to try rye myself next year. I would say it would do well in Newfoundland. I've seen vendors selling it online in Canada for planting... but usually it is un-named or a special (?) variety by Sepp Holzer (Sepp's Rye). I also found one being sold as perennial rye, but they also mention it usually grows ergot or some sort fungus.
>>2588741>I just mentioned those grains because I was curious if you were growing or tried growing anything besides the rye.I wanted something growing over winter that wont die to frost. Rye seems to be best for that.>ergothttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ergotread the intro

>>2587770how to receive this blessing? can i plant them or induce growing in some way or look in specific placest. sad fool who never had a wild strawberry
>>2588485You'll need some wetlands nearby. Here in PA there's a law mandating wetlands and retention ponds everywhere.
>>2588744Nice. I'll read up more on growing rye in my area. Could be a fun project. As for ergot, I know it can grow on these grains, I'm just saying this website in Canada that sells a "perennial rye" mentions their rye is highly susceptible to ergot.
>>2588747I made the post about them being a scam. Don’t let it worry you too much, gardening is about experimenting and finding out what works for you. Maybe the pots will work for you. If not, you know my recommendation.
>>2588746That’s definitely a sunflower lol. Their cotyledons are sort of like cucurbits, but other than that I don’t know how they could have made that mistake.
>>2588778I would assume the same water spaces that let mosquitoes breed, would let dragonflies breed?>>2588779>I'm just saying this website in Canada that sells a "perennial rye" mentions their rye is highly susceptible to ergot.Look on the bright side, you could get your delirious hallucinations and call it a religious experience like the peasants in the old times did.
>>2588782guy who gave em to me is an old man and well renowned fool
>>2588263>bagmight have been dog shit picked up from the yard hence the mixed in clovers that broke down and composted over time
would grass clippings used as mulch work as the suffocator in place of something like cardboard for a no dig bed? I have a huge inflow of grass clippings but no cardboard and I dont see why i couldnt just mat it down thick over a section of yard then put my compost and soil on top of that. anyone tried this or have any thoughts?
>>2588790Grass clippings are great. Maybe not as effective as cardboard for blocking weeds , but they are also a source nutrients. I always mulch my garden with grass clippings
>>2588784>Look on the bright side, you could get your delirious hallucinations and call it a religious experience like the peasants in the old times did.Hahaha, good point, anon. I will keep you updated!
>>2588790Grass clippings that are fresh, if piled on in a big enough pile will compost, hot compost on the spot to the point of burning stuff.If the layer is thin, it wont do that, but then it wont blockout things well enough as cardboard.
I'm doing it boys. GOATS.
>>2588801is there really any alternative to the cardboard for no dig suffocation layering then? I dont really have any way of getting cardboard in amounts that I need without doing a dumpster dive
>>2588803Let the grass clippings dry while in a thin layer. Once dry and as straw/hay you can pile it up safely.If you bunch fresh grass high then it will hot compost on the spot.Capiche?
>>2588802keep us updated
I started habaneros and roma tomatoes in trays a few days ago and I'm afraid I started them too late to plant them outdoors (Cfa). Also how much water is too much for the habaneros? I saw the post where anon said the one guy was waterboarding his peppers kek. Its one of those tray containers with a catcher that holds water and a lid for humidity. I have kept about a half inch of water in the tray since planting and I got it sitting on top of my dryer for heat and a few windows for light. I have heard habaneros are easy to grow but as a noob gardener you guys make peppers seem scary
My carrots will trigger my OCD for the next few weeks. They are starting to get weeds, but are too small to weed so I have to just leave them alone.I'm happy to see all my first planting of beans came up. I didn't even notice any of the weird beans that sprout without leaves. Sometimes I get a lot of those.
>>2588808good idea anon maybe I can also mix it with some of the leftover straw I have from mulching my lawn last year
>>2588811I planted carrots but I don't think any of them took. Are you going to trellis the beans?
>>2588810you can soak it just let it dry out before watering againIf the top soil is dry poke down with your finger and see if it's moistif it's moist leave it alone but judge by how moistThe plant doesn't need to be drenched daily unless your in the fucking deserts of the southwest.just judge the soil and poke it if unsureit's okay to let the soil get dry with peppers just waterlet drywaterlet drypeppers that get watered like this make hotter peppers
>>2588811Generally, the bigger the "seed" the easier time humans have getting it off the ground.Beans are almost retard proof. Speaking of which. Daily reminder.
>>2588809They all died
>try to get a proper woodland garden started>roots everywhereThis is as expected as it's annoying
>>2588826>trying to garden when natures already got it handled
>>2588827I don't want just shitty ugly grass between my trees I want bushes and flowers too :(
>>2588826Say no more! Try my retard pending design!
>>2588810I'm told with peppers you want to wait for them to get droopy from drought, leaves all hanging. Water them, and remember the time it took for them to get droopy and try to beat that by just a bit, water them just before they get droopy leaves again.
lads what happens if my compost pile gets too wet? I've build a pretty sizable pile but I don't have any way of covering it and its pouring rain right now. intuitively I imagine this cant really be a problem but I've heard people talking about moisture levels being important to maintain
>>2588850It’ll still break down, maybe even faster this way. Rain happens in nature and shot decomposed. I wouldn’t worry about problems you can’t address.
Brehs. I made a garden buddy and we’ve been swapping plants. she’s like 10 years my junior, so around 25, but I can’t stop thinking about her. I get good vibes from her but I just can’t bring myself to ask her out because I love our friendship and don’t want to scare her off.
>>2588859plant your seed in her garden
>>2588698Stop over thinking things retard. Fuck her hard and then feed her a home grown meal. Simple as.
>>2588859Be happy for the friendship and don't try to bang everything that moves?
>>2588872How do you find a wife and start a family if you never ask anyone out? I’m not just trying to get pussy here.
>>2588813>I planted carrots but I don't think any of them took. Are you going to trellis the beans?Bush beans so no need for trellis. My carrots took about 3 weeks to come up. I find it's best to cover carrot rows for at least 10 days after planting to give them time to germinate without drying out since the sowing depth is only 1/4". I use a canvas painting cloth, some people use plywood. Once I started covering after planting I'd get near 100% germination.
>>2588886>>2588813going to jump into this conversation and post my carrots. Sown half an inch to an inch deep and the only cover was the straw mulch you see in the pic that hasn't been tampered with.Pic is 1 month and 2 days after sowing.
>>2588895Here are my 5 rows of carrots after 25 days. The mulch makes them a little harder to see. I double checked what I logged for when they first came up and it was 17 days, so more like 2.5 weeks instead of 3.
>>2588900I aimed to plant them thinner this year using a dial seed sower, but they are still pretty tightly spaced in spots.
>>2588900oh yeah, well here is my radish sow on the same day as carrots
>>2588903Onions bulbs in my image were also planted same day as the carrots and are taller than you insect riddled radishes :P I've given up trying to grow radishes, flea beetles destroy my early crops every year (radishes, chard, lettuce, peas). Maybe I'll make a mesh row cover to keep them at bay.
>>2588907peas are fine
>>2588886I covered the carrots with a board but I think I left it on too long. Upon further inspection I think I may have some carrots but I'm unsure. First time having a garden and this was the only thing I think I really fugged up.
>>2588886also planted a row of beans but something is fugging them up (this is the worst one so not too bad) but I'm not even sure what kind of bean they are. got them from the same guy who told me sunflowers were cucumbers
crows in the duck house. i bullied two crows and a jackdaw and they havent come back. do i have to fight each bird that gets in?whats a good solution?
>>2588922Owl statues? Magical wards?
>>2588913Too early to tell if it’s bush or pole. Just let it grow and if it gets real long and flops over trellis it up.
>>2588912Looks like carrots. Carrots start off looking like tiny grass, then they develop a segmented pattern. Looks like yours are fairly far along and should take off soon.
Has anyone tried Mel's mix? Is it worth it?
>>2588981Haven’t tried it. I’m sure it works, but I doubt it’s much better than soil you can buy at the store. Square foot gardening was how I started, but I never bothered mixing my own soil and I have great gardens.
>already had two watering cans to go water the plants out of reach of the hose >had to buy another, bigger one because I was starting to have too many plants and had to go back and forth all the timewhen does it stop
Anyone tried making a pond? I want a little space for animal bros to drink.
>>2589006yes, you can do this. dig a hole, put a plastic sheet. have a nearby roof to empty rain into the pond. grow duckweed or algae and mosquitos. make it as big and deep as possible. bigger, deeper, you will have a ton of extra dirt you can make a hill or something or use it to raise the edges of the pond
wtf is making these little holes in my arugula?
1st time planting stuff, most is growing well, i just bought a box with 80 types of edible plant seeds in it and planted most of them in this little garden that was just grass, a dead tree stump and some bushes. The 3rd row is still empty, but i got more stuff to put in there.
Need insecticide help…. The neem oil doesn’t work. I’m growing okra and bell pepper. Im being raped
>>2588874Ask her out, as far as I can tell the only way to date these days is to just keep doing things together until she depends on you
>>2589183And by ask her out make it not like a date like invite her to the gym or on a hike
>>2589183Thanks. Interesting idea.
>>2587965Have you been mulching? ABM = ALWAYS BE MULCHING >gay nord language your climate is mild enough that a 20cm layer of mulch will keep the soil moist for weeks on end
>>2589181What pests? Very important question
>>2589121Niggers.That looks like weevil or beetle damage desu
>>2589206Well I found something growing in one of my okra buds. I cut it off and cut it in half to find something stinky and bleeding. I find a bunch of holes in my leaves on my bell pepper and okra sprouts. I put some fertilizer down a while back that seemed to attract flies but I put more soil down and they aren’t around anymore
>>2588967I already got the trellis set up so hopefully they aren't bush types I have them planted fairly close together maybe about 8 or so inches apart
>>2589209You are describing three different pests. The first one sounds like a beetle grub, they sting fruit and flowers and eat them from the inside. Only way to control without spraying mass pesticide every day is check the fruits and remove any with sting marks/holes in them. Eventually they stop breeding so much. Unironically put a birdbath in your garden to attract insect eaters, very underrated. Holes in leaves on sprouts can be like 5 different pests. Probably slugs or snails. Look up Beer Trap for snails and do that, could be caterpillars too, so horticultural/neem oil spray will work. Last one doesnt need pesticide obviously, if you keep your ground mulched flies will be less of an issue
>>2589004>when does it stopwhen you buy a longer hose
My black currant is loaded
>>2589238>hauling around a 1/2 acre hose on a tree-laden plot of landI'd rather not, thanks

>>2589249>>2589250>100' hoseDrag that hose, fatty!
>>2587738>Peaches are also commonly grafted on peach seedlings.Yeah I thought about growing some seedlings out, and also heard they grow pretty close to type. Haven't yet though due to the cold requirements.Anyway, thanks for the advice, I'm going to have a go with the peach first then for practice since I've got plenty of it, then order some different plum varieties to graft and improve my grove. It will be a while of course, but I'll report back to this thread with my progress.
>>2589252Lose some weight anon. It's good for you.
>>2589261I still have 10-20 or so to lose but I did go from 245lbs to about 200 in the past few years
>>2589004When you install a drip irrigation system with a sprinkler timer (OpenSprinkler is amazing btw)
>>2589267My "garden" is a bunch of fruit trees and shrubs that are all over the place in the woods I don't think that would be worth itAnyway I was mostly just being rhetorical about buying more and more plants than anything else desu
>>2589237My grandma is saying sevin dust. It’s a balcony garden no room for bird bath but I have some suet cakes out
>>2589269Ah well, think of it like this; some poly tubing and a few hours of trenching is about all you’d need - then it’s either just turning on a hose bib or setting a schedule once and it’s automatic— versus perpetually hand watering every day forever.My garden’s ~100’ from the house up a hill; trenching the water lines SUCKED; but now watering all of my raised beds is completely automated- and it uses way less water as an added benefit.

>>2589347Ribes can get a disease that wreck the shit out of pine trees so many jurisdictions gave it the b&hammer especially around new england
>>2589347>>2589349can confirm sometimes you gotta save the forests and suck it up
>>2589377If I lived in a place where ribes were banned I wouldn't hesitate to grow them anyway, white pine farms are ecological deserts and I'd love to see them decimated
>>2589349>>2589377Wait, don't you have any wild ribes plants in your woods?Wikipedia says that now the currents belong to wild flora of the USA.So what's the point of the ban if you have ribes in forests anyway?It just makes no sense to me.
>>2589395White pine are a plague. They drop needles by the foot and piss sap and resin all over

Can scallions turn into chives?There were a few bulbs I forgot about planting last year, they came back this year with tinier shoots and let them be.Now they’ve bloomed distinct purple chive flowers. Not complaining, can never have too many chives, just odd.
>>2589398Haven't seen any in the woods.
I have this massive yard with super fertile soilI've been thinking about gardening. I have a rosebush that was planted by the last owner and they just GROW
I have access to hundreds of pounds of fresh used coffee grounds for free. what is the best ways to utilize this in a garden/soil?
>>2589349And what's better? Plant scientists developed cultivars that supposed had immunity to White Pine Rust, and recently, after massive planting of said varieties had already taken place, the supposed immunity has proved to be false and now you have massive fields of Ribes spreading out spores next door to states heavily wooded with Eastern White Pine.
>>2589456B-but cnn said scientists can't ever be wrong
>>2589457Really, White Pine Rust is a true example of a fungus being an utter and absolute bastard. It evolved to pingpong between Ribes and pine trees. It causes the Ribes to die back and suffer for the season, and causes the pine's bark to melt off. A true asshole of a pathogen.
>>2589132that looks great
What are the best plants to start off with if I absolutely suck ass at growing plants? I've ended up killing some cilantro plants this spring and failed to germinate some beans too. Also is it better to become at least somewhat proficient in growing plants before delving into chicken keeping?
>>2588784>the same water spaces that let mosquitoes breed, would let dragonflies breed?No. Dragonflies are much larger and need constant food. Mosquitos will lay eggs in basically any standing water. Dragonflies like ponds at the smallest, and need reeds or long grass to hunt and mate. For some reason they tend to avoid man made stuff.

Anyone here grows Jerusalem artichokes?I want to plant them but I have been told they are impossible to get rid of once they are established, is it true?
>>2589669I had most of my first year crop wiped out by voles and am basically starting from zero again. They spread via the tubers that are the vegetables you're growing them for. The tubers are relatively small, but can be numerous. If you're lazy in attempting to remove them if you wanted to remove them, I could see a few slipping by. But to have them be invasive or aggressive as a weed seems like it would require you actively neglecting them in a situation absent any pests that would bank on their presence or half-assing the job of removal.
>>2589674The plants themselves are fairly frail and are very susceptible to powdery mildew. So it's not like they're some superweed that's going to sweep through and take over. They're just a crop that people grow in a corner. So if you let them grow in a corner for years and don't harvest or rein them in, I could see that being where the reputation comes from.
>>2589674>>2589676I see, I'll plant it then, thanks.
>>2589677One thing to know is that a common caveat is that they contain a chemical that makes humans flatulent unless you process them to diminish or remove it.
>>2589665Naruhodo. Still I have no idea about the taste differences.
>>2589669Yup me, I grow them.>I want to plant them but I have been told they are impossible to get rid of once they are established, is it true?Ehhh to me it's "no effort needed in reseeding" Just come, harvest, leave some for next year and get some more.Really think about it. If you had any other edible plant spread itself with minimal effort would this be a problem?>oh no not the potatoes they self seed and come up next year>oh nooo not strawberries they will grow and take over everything and provide you with many strawberries, the horror?get what I'm saying?
>>2589718I might want to use that space for something else later on if I discover that they aren't really worth growing for example.How well do they tolerate shading btw?I do have one spot where I wouldn't really care if they took over but it only gets some sun in evening.
>>2589727>I might want to use that space for something else later onYeah, just get them all when removing then :^)> if I discover that they aren't really worth growing for example.What are the conditions to that?>How well do they tolerate shading btw?Dunno I keep them in a sunny spot, as far as I know they do need the sun and mine grow quite tall.> The competitiveness against weeds is high, making weed control easier but also making it harder to grow a different culture afterward, since usually small pieces of tubers remain in the ground after harvest. The plant's high competitiveness may be due to allelopathic effects, high plant size, and rapid growth rate.sounds like a winner dont it?
>>2589718>strawberriesPhytophthora kept genociding mine, now i use here and there fosetil, but i need to find a new way to fight these diseases
>>2589727>How well do they tolerate shading btw?Jerusalem artichokes can be grown in full sun or partial shade. If they get at least six hours of sun a day, this will help ensure the best yield.
>>2589729>What are the conditions to that?If they attract pests like voles for example then I'll want to remove them. >>2589732>at least six hours of sun a day.I'll need to find something else for that corner then, it's hard to find something for a spot with 2~3 hours of sunlight a day.
Brehs is 3 haskap shrubs enough for one person?I bought a pot of haskap jam from a local company just for a sneak peek and it's literally one of the best things I've tasted in recent memory so I want moar
>>2589744i have a couple varieties, they tasted most of the time bad like blackcurrant, but once tasted like pineapple and another times different but good, for strawberries and raspberries i just pull gently and if it comes out easily, its good but with haskaps they are always very easy to detach so maybe i should pick them when they seem to start to get wrinkly or sumthing
>>2589669>Anyone here grows Jerusalem artichokes?Well, my parents are one of the people who would like to stop growing them.After years of battling the Jerusalem artichokes, now they grow "only" under a redcurrant.That is, some of the sunchoke's rhizomes are literally under the currant shrub, and every year they grow through the shrub and start new canes all around it.Concentrated glyphosate three times in a row failed to kill them. I mean, the canes withered, but then regrown, the new leaves were put in a plastic bag with roundup again, withered again and so on...My parents keep weeding them out, but the Jerusalem artichokes persist regrow. It's been like this for six years I believe.So... unless you are able to sieve through your soil to remove all the rhizomes, you're likely to end up growing those forever.Maybe it's easier to get rid of them if they don't like your soil or climate, but there were I live it's not that easy.
>>2589778>Concentrated glyphosate>roundup>in your gardenthey deserve everything thats coming to them
>>2589757That wasn't my question
In a hypothetical societal breakdown survival situation what are the best plants to grow for essential nutrients? Specifically iodine, I live in the great lakes region and I don't think the fish in the lakes have iodine.
>>2589669In my experience, nah, not impossible to get rid of. They spread a bit more each year, but I've had them in two separate 2x2 meter areas for years now, without much spread.They're delicious when frying them up, either on their own or together with some potatoes. Can't say I ever really experienced the flatulence they're said to cause.
I'm cleaning out a backyard that's been lying unattended for a few years. There's some unusual plants growing there that I don't recognize, I'm hoping folks here can help.This plant seem to look like a vine, except that it doesn't actually vine around anything; it just spreads across the ground and doesn't climb up other plants or any of the poles like other weeds in this yard do.
>>2589890Another notable/weird thing is that the leaves close to the roots look different than the leaves on the rest of the plant.
My new northblue blueberry hardly has any leaves yet seems to be almost falling over with flowers and buds. Is this normal? Looks kinda weird tbqh

>>2590062Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium, the Dalmatian chrysanthemum. Trying to find a seller brings you to an out-of-stock organic sales website and tries to get you to buy a bunch of pure ornamentals that are named where they might trick you into thinking they're the same plant.
Help, /HGM/. About a month ago I transplanted a wineberry bramble (grows wild in my area (East TN)) from a pond near my home into a shady part of my yard. It seems to be surviving just fine, but it doesn’t appear to have grown at all. Is this normal? Is it a bad sign? For reference, the plant is supposed to be very shade tolerant, and I’ve only ever seen it growing in mostly shaded areas.
Should I remove the flowers from my potatoes?
>>2589778when you applied the glysophate, how did you do it?when i have some awful shit like knotweed or bamboo, i cut the top and immediately paint on the concentrate to the stumpiirc glysophate works like a poison pumping through a plants veins as it photosynthesizes, so cutting and immediately injecting glysophate sends it into its system more effectively than spraying on the top
>>2590190also wondering thisthey have like 60 days left but are already flowering- they’re tiny flowers so idk if they’re actually detrimental to the tubers or not
>>2590180Wow anon I was planning on transplanting this shit I found from across my creek because I thought it was raspberries but from examining your image it looks more like wineberry I guess? What is the difference the berries look very similar to ones I used to pick at my grandmas house and made jam with and we just called em raspberries. Is it too late in the season to try and transplant these things closer to my house?
>>2590180>>2590179also any tips on transplanting? guy on youtube just said you can cut pieces off and they will grow roots or do I need to dig up the roots and replant them that way
>June>43 degrees at night still>hasn't rained in a monthMy tomatoes and peppers are toast.
>>2590230Unless, they're different from other Rubus, you're going to want to bury leads and let them root as runners or engage in air-layering. I've never had Rubus freely root when detached from the parent plant.
>>2590235I'm getting 35F for the next 2 days at night.I wonder how my corn is doing. Completely dead or hanging in there by a sliver.Haven't planted out my peppers or tomatoes yet for that reason as well.Also cucumbers.After the 2 days I'm going to plant all the warm loving plants out and its up to god from there. Because I can't delay it further endlessly and run out of growing season. Because I got freezing at the start of august last year and so I expect freezing possibility in this august as well.Really I'm fucking pushed from one freezing to the other end with the time between them getting shorter and shorter. 2 months of frost free is about as good as it gets right now for me. Its like, is there even any point in planting things that can't tolerate a frost or dont grow in 60 days? lol.Going to need to build a greenhouse for some tomatoes, no other way to make this shit work. Otherwise its either dead tomatoes, or green tomatoes.
>>2590239Granted, I could just be shit at rooting Rubus. Currently trying to root a bunch of other stuff, so I'm practicing. But I'd imagine that you'd need sterile conditions to get it to take off properly. Because it will take months.
Beans doing great right now. Tomatoes doing pretty good, they were getting baked so I had to remove the plastic around the cages. I transplanted my pickling cucumbers a few days ago. The drip irrigation will have to get installed soon, 30C all next week. Just 2 rows of beans to plant and 2 fabric pots to put chard and lettuce in.
I found a squash of some sort growing out of my compost, I think its a pumpkin. I'm gonna leave it and see how well it goes
What did I do wrong? I already transplanted the other half of the plants and they're basically dead. Did I not get them used to direct sunlight enough? Trying to save these so I don't have to buy plants for a lot of money..
I'll get a yield if this is where my tomatoes are right now... Right? Please tell me it'll be okay
>>2588777In warm seasons when they seem to be growing, just dig up a whole plant from whereever you find it. They enjoy some shade so I find them on roadsides and under trees. Put that plant where you want it, like in the flower bed and give it some water.In cold seasons just leave them be or they'll fucking die on you.If you find the berries, just stick them in the soil. You can cut them up to maximize your chances as the seeds are the small spots on the surface. After a month you might meet something like pic related.They are pretty winter hardy but don't like being deep frozen. If you grow them in pots then a winter cover can be a good idea.
>>2590191>when you applied the glysophate, how did you do it?I put roundup in a syringe, then I placed a small ziplock bag so that any stray drops end up in it, and I smeared roundup all over the leaf. Finally I wrapped the leaf in the said bag. I repeated this for a dozen of leaves.>when i have some awful shit like knotweed or bamboo, i cut the top and immediately paint on the concentrate to the stumpI've heard of this method as one of the working ways of getting rid of trees that tend to shoot all around new trees from roots when you cut them main stem (e.g., black locust tends to do that). I never tried this on perennials.
4 of my mango seeds I planted have sprouted. :D One of them even has multiple sprouts coming up already (Ataulfo seeds, so polyembryonic). Have a bunch more seeds that are getting ready to be planted, a mixture of Tommy Atkins and more Ataulfo. Then I've got several Haden mangos ripening, and when I eat them I'll plant their seeds. I know none of these are exciting varieties, but it's what I can find in the store lol.Also have two "large green skin" avocado seedlings, one of which is like 16" tall at this point. And a Haas I think seed that split and has green and tiny roots but has done nothing for the past month. Got one more green skin avocado seed and several Haas (one of which is a tiny seed) sitting in water waiting for them to do something. Crazy how some will sprout seeds immediately, like inside a week, other will sit for months doing nothing then suddenly boom they get started lol.Oh and I cut up a pineapple yesterday, and found 4 seeds so having a go at starting those. I've done it before and got minuscule little pineapple plants but I wasn't able to transition them from a damp paper towel to soil. And I've got some guavas, maybe I'll try to do something with those seeds, why not? I love the smell of them, haven't had them in a few years so it reminds me of good times I was having in the past. :DAnyway that's it for my blog, maybe I'll get some pics of this shit later.
>>2590240Tomatoes/peppers went in 2 weeks ago and it's suppoed to be over 55 at night this time of year.
>>2589890>>2589892My guess is that it's some kind of honeysuckle, at least it's similar in look and growing habits to some honeysuckle species that are native in the EU.Notice the opposite leaf arrangement, surprisingly few shrub/tree genus have them.
my seedlings are getting all leggy because I don't get enough sun indoorshow soon could I put them outside without risking losing them to pests? Last time I transplanted some outside it took less than an hour for aphids to lay down eggs on some
>>2590218To me, they have a more tart taste, and the leaves/flowers look different. My wife hates raspberries and blackberries but loves wineberries, so I guess they’re pretty different in flavor profile. They’re also a lot juicier than raspberries in my experience.
>>2590239>you're going to want to bury leads>never had Rubus freely root when detachedso you mean take the tip of the plant furthest from the roots and bury it that side down? when you say never had rubus root when detached do you just mean like a cut section from a branch? I wonder how difficult it would be to dig it up from its roots and replant it that way>>2590327I've been picking and eating them my whole life calling them raspberries until now, love the fuckin things makes the best jelly too
>>2589466Thanks, i just gotta wait now. I do have some weird beans though, when they grew they didnt have the 1st 2 leaves but they grew very flowery with almost no leaves and it looks like it has a tiny bean pod on it>>2587748ooh i got these round back growing between the stones and grass and in a part of my bushy area
>>2590328I mean you can take a cane, give it contact with the ground, and it'll start rooting in. Rubus generally like to creep, so you can game that and take a cane that would otherwise need a while to reach the ground and set it in a pot.When I say I've never had it root while detached, I mean I've tried to root cut off canes in several different ways. Vertically, laid under soil, etc. They've never taken when removed from the mother plant. But that could be my cursed luck.
My cherry is finally getting fruit.
>>2590342Neat, how long did it take it?I planted a montmorency about an inch across and 7ish feet tall last fall and it just got some flowers this week
>>2590347It's on the second year and only has about 5 fruits, so next year on the second year wood it will surely have a lot. It's a Stella Cherry, as I only have room for 1. It's growing about 6 feet per year. here it is in spring of 2022 after it first woke up after transplant.
>>2590326Just use a bright LED instead, I have 4000 lumen bulb I hang right above my indoor seedlings and they never get leggy.It's pretty cheap and only consumes 40 watts.You could buy a dedicated grow light instead but those are pricey while only being slightly more efficient and with slightly better spectrum.Also never buy those purple abominations, you'll regret it even if you are saving a lot of money. Oh and make sure it shines downwards only, you want 180 deg or less angle of illumination.
Just planted 6 american hazelnut bushes lads, maybe I'll be able to get a nut or two before the squirrels find them
>>2590338have you ever tried just digging up the entire thing? I think I'm gonna try and tip a few into pots then dig up an entire smaller one
>>2587046Put cardboard and free tree mulch down on the whole area, start things you want in there in pots and plant into it
>>2587471Pic related is a Venturi valve i set up on my irrigation mainline to suck liquids into the system. Namely, my piss
Question. If I'm propagating a plant from cuttings via broken segments and it has an already callused cut from the break, should I give it a fresh cut or just apply rooting hormone and plop it in the mix? Commonly the advice is to make a clean, even cut, but what if the cut is basically healed over by the plant itself and the only damage you need to actually do amounts to a slice along the sole edge holding it?
This is what my mulberry catkins look like – the lower left part is female and upper right part is male.By the book male catkins fall off, and female turn into flowers.TFW you try to search the internet for an answer to the question "will a half stamen covered and half pistil covered mulberry catkin turn into a fruit, half-fruit or fall off" and all you can find is an article by some Indian guys who try to change sex of their mulberries (https://www.journalofscience.net/doi/ODhrYWxhaTE0Nzg1MjM2OQ==)...Why do I end up in all this lgbtq+ hassle when I just want to know whether my plant will bear fruits or else it's not worth keeping in my garden? Do they just want to start selling a mulberry sex conversion spray or what?

>leaves on my cayenne starting to fold up most likely as a result of too much heat and/or lightWhat's the deal I thought peppers loved hot sunny weather? Anyway to fix this, they're already sitting in the bed so removing them is out of the question?
>>2590485It's fine and it has to do with watering and stuff. The leaves lower their surface area so they get less energy because they dont have the water to use it. It's the plant saving itself from problems, it doesn't really mean much of anything bad. My tomatoes do that some years and nothing changes with them.

A lot of times when I’m gardening I turn on Charles dowding and listen to the audio. I usually don’t retain much information, but it’s like having a wizened old gardening pal chatting with you.
>>2590706ah yes, the parasocial relationships that the kids are into these days
>tfw your seedlings can handle heat stress better than youHow do you protect against heat exhaustion while outside?
>>2590717That's what happens when friendship is a vanishing concept
>>2590737Dunno anon, I'm 100% friendless, no relationship or a woman in my life. Yet even I don't turn to parasocial relationships to cope.
>>2590737I wish I could find friends to garden with me. But who is there? I’ve gone to my local gardening club and met a bunch of dumbass boomers with bad advice. The only millenials I know who garden are tards who mainly try to grow weed. It’s not that friendship is a vanishing concept. It’s that our society is breaking down. That’s why I post here and listen to Charles dowding just to simulate conversation.
>>2590756good for you I guess
>>2590779>I guessthat about sums it up>>2590778In my case I just get joy from growing things and enjoying the fruits of my labor. I put stuff in, I get stuff out. Completely unlike with humans where it feels like you are trying to fill a bucket with holes in it, it never fills up, and there is no fruits of labor to be enjoyed at the end of it all.Ironic that the path of the hermit yields more joy even though intuitively one would not think so.
>>2590787>the path of the hermit yields more joy even though intuitively one would not think soIt's just normos projecting their inability to engage with their own mind onto everyone else. Sad really
Just before memorial weekend, I noticed some green worms eating some of our vegetables. I mixed up this stuff I was told kills insects - 1 cup Dawn, 1 cup Iso Alcohol and 1 gallon water. Put into a pressure sprayer and lightly sprayed everything in our two 4x8 raised beds, some grow bags and pots. My young boy saw me doing it. My girl and I went out of town leaving her mom to watch the kids at our house. There was over 3/4 of that mixture remaining when we left Friday. Monday evening I go to look at the garden, and almost everything looks dead as shit. The boy had sprayed the entire thing jug on the garden.I don't really care about the kale and broccoli, but I had some tomato and peppers that aren't easy to come by, and I think its too late to find started plants and definitely to plant seeds. I've read everything I could find online, but nothing about this situation.Is it possible for these to come back?
>>2590792they are dead. go buy new plants.
>>2590792Here are some tomato plants. They don't look near as bad as the pepper plants. I have hope for these
>>2590791I dunno for me, human relationships are like gambling. Plants and animals feels stable and very predictable.If you get joy from building a house brick by brick, then nautrally you'll like stability of plants as well.But humans? Its all over the place, high highs, low lows, inpredictable input to output. I know some people enjoy gambling but I can't get any joy out of it, I feel nothing from it. And on top if it I detest it's nature and exploitativeness. Human relationsships while enjoyable, they posses the same volatility that gambling does.Thus with age, it becomes hard to make a rational argument for putting my energies into that field. Rather than planting another tree for example.
>>2590792Grab up the entire soil ball containing the roots, plop them in pots, and then wash them out and put them in dappled shade so they can recover.Don't disturb the roots if you do this.
>>2590813Annnd I just noticed you had more plants with this. Alternate strategy. Soak the bed. Dilute anything in there until it's no longer an issue.
>new dwarf cherry tree has some yellow leaves with spotsOh fug
Orion here. I hope Ire, aconstu, and that one Jewish kid with the waffles dog are doing well.Ive been battling the ground elder and I am planning on what to replace them with, probably lingon or elderberry. Also I will plant corn in my front yard and there's nothing the neighbors can do to stop me.
>>2590816had something similar. spots showed, leaves yellowed, then dropped prematurely. i hit it with cooper fungicide a couple years ago and the spots/leaf drop hasn't returned

>>2590848>he didnt invest into frost tolerant plantsLMAO! FAVA CHAD RISE UP!
>>2590848>>2590867should add that fava bean amino acid profile is pretty poor among beans.and lets not forget that lovely chemical that ACKs people with favism and even healthy people get a good dose of oxidation.But hey, it's frost hardy so not only do you get to plant it early it survive dumb cold weather.Also soibeans have way too much shit as well.
>>2590837Horseradish and Chives are the wingmen of any fruit tree as they provide natural fungicides.
>>2590879so one should just plant a bunch of chives and horse radish under their fruit trees?
>>2590879>>2590882oof I have chives growing like weeds in my backyard, I never knew they useful like that
>>2590883Isn't that garlic chives tho?It's a bit different from 'normal' chives with single per stem pink to purple flowers.
Fuark bros my soil has a tendency to look dry so I might have overcompensated by watering moderately every day this spring but I just saw a bunch of guidelines saying that it's better to water about an inch or two just a couple times a week at most in conditions and plants similar to mine to stimulate better/deeper roots.Did I ruin my plants? They're looking good from the surface at least.On a related note my lilac and one of my blueberries get pretty droopy pretty much every day until I water them, should I make an exception for them?Thanks
Picked up a bag of seed potatoes at Tractor Supply cause they were 50% off, how do I turn them into food?Or in other words, what kind of spacing and such would y'all suggest? I've got the sunniest spot in my yard temporarily free cause all my citrus trees died. ):Also how long does it take for them to grow, if I plant now when is harvest?
I fertilized some figs in cnotainers and now they have wilty yellow leaves on the lower parts of the tree and look sad. Wtf? Why do figs hate fertilizer? Now that I think about it I fertilized my in ground one before and it also hated it.Stupid bastards they just grow in shit soil and if I try to do anything they don't like it but if I ignore them they grow like weeds.
Would it be okay to have raspberry plants of different colors and varieties on the same trellis?
>>2590832>Also I will plant corn in my front yard and there's nothing the neighbors can do to stop me.All they have to do is walk on them as they're growing, this asshole maintenance guy did it when I planted some with permission in my neighbor's little backyard.

Line of thunderstorms. Disappears just before the city, and reforms on the other side of the city continuing its path. Happens all the time. But the line is long enough it should overcome the heat island and we might get some rain out of it.
>>2590961that was me until this afternoon when it dumped a nice half inch after i watered this morning.
>>2590894For spacing, I personally go by the RHS guide at https://www.rhs.org.uk/vegetables/potatoes/grow-your-own (it's got more info on how to grow them besides that, but note that its stated months etc are set for the British climate and won't necessarily be accurate to where you live)>dig 15cm/6" trenches and place potatoes with eyes/sprouts facing upwards>early varieties should be about 30cm/12" apart in rows 60cm/24" apart>maincrop varieties should be about 37cm/15" apart in rows 75cm/30" apartthough you don't need to treat these measurements as gospel or anything more than guidelines (other figures from other sources should probably be equally valid too)As for how long they take to grow, it'll depend on where in the world you are, what kind of cultivar you've got, and what the weather will be like this summer. Looking it up myself, I got these figures, but again, your mileage may vary:>first early: 10-12 weeks>second early: 14-16 weeks>maincrop: 15-22 weeksIt's starting to get a bit late in the year for planting potatoes (your area is probably no exception if they're being sold at 50% off) but you'll still get potatoes out of them even with a month or so less time to grow.
>>2590975Thanks. I hope it's not too late, they said something about being able to get a second crop if planted by June 15 so I figured I'd be good. Doesn't really get cold here until like December or January so hopefully it all works out. I really want these to work too, they're purple potatoes and no one sells those here except the little tiny ones, I miss full size purple potatoes.And red bananas too but that's another matter lol.Also the 50% off I guess some was because of the late season, but also a lot of the plants weren't looking so hot. Had lots of various stuff I would have bought if I thought they had any chance to come back. Might still go back and grab some asparagus crowns though, those are probably fine. But their grapes and berries? All withered brown leaves on dried out stems lol. Might as well be free.One last thought, it's usually wet here, both humidity wise and constant rains, despite being hot and sunny.... I hope that doesn't fuck my potatoes.
Why has my basil turned to wood? It's from last year and I kept it inside all winter.
>>2590961Big storm ended up coming through during the night dropping an 1.5 inches. Nice to have some bigger rains after the past few dry years of infrequent light rain that doesn't soak in very deep.

14 days for first batch of beans to start coming up. 9 days for the second planting. First planting is looking good with the second set of leaves about to open. One of my pepper plants has a flower starting, but the plant is quite small. With our short growing season I should probably forego pepper topping and just let the plant grow normally.

2" of rain since yesterday evening, so my potted tomatoes along the drainage grade are getting a deep watering. My potted potatoes are big enough I should be able to stuff them with straw and forget about them until the tops die off.
>kudzu is becoming more and more cold hardyPeas win, I guess.
Carrots, peppers, beans, cucumbers and the other potatoes. So many weeds in the carrots now.
anyone else have serious squirrel problems? I fenced my garden off and they still get in. I just ordered an electric fence, which feels like overkill but im out of options

All the rain we got today makes me wish I had a rain barrel. If I get one I'm thinking I'd go with a used 275 gallon food grade intermediate bulk container cube on a raised platform with a cover.
>>2591508I have one of those, used it for ice baths after cutting off plastic top for 2 years before I got folding water tank.They are quite durable if something is going to fail it'll be the valve.Sometimes you can get them real cheap used too.
>>2591492Very neat and tidy anon, quite the opposite of everything I do but aesthetically pleasing
>>2591504>out of optionsSo I guess you aren’t aware of high powered pellet guns
>>2591504Squirrels are inevitable. There is a prod out called repel all from Bonide. You sprinkle it on places you don’t want squirrels. I recommend it. It is pretty effective for me
>>2591524>products from bonideI dislike purchasing anything of the sort. I have to do copper spray on my peach trees next year because apparently they just can’t cut it on their own against leaf curl fungus, but meh, pest detergent from the supermarket, f that. Live trap them and eat them I say
>>2591530It’s not detergent it’s a pepper based powder, completely organic. Basically you sprinkle it on the ground where you don’t want squirrels, when they come around they huff the powder and it irritates their nostrils so they run off. It degrades verybquickly

Should I keep adding spent grain from beer batches to my worm farm?
Why do we have to wait for it to reach page 10
>>2591641I think alternating it with other stuff and making sure it’s entirely decomposed before adding more is okay.>t two worm “bins” for 5+ years in my basement dont do much for them but add shredded newspaper and all the things
>>2591508> 275 gallonDo they really not call that 1 cubic metre or 1000 litre container in 'Murica? That uneven number of looks freaky.Nevertheless, I recommend the rain collection setup. The best part is that you stop considering the price of water, for it's "free", and you just water when you feel it would be nice to.The setup itself is not that cheap, especially if you want it to look nice, but my local government made a program popularising rain collecting and subsidized them, so it was definitely worth it for me.From my experience: if you put the container high enough, you can even go with gravitational watering.And if you want to use the water "normally", I recommend installing a pump, preferably a regenerative (peripheral) one due to their high efficiency and low cost is such setups. The cost of electricity to pump the water is much much lower than the price for the water.
Are microgreens a meme? They seem so easy to plant. I put them on everything, might as well grow my own.
>>2588680Romans would harvest piss and shit for fertilizer.
>>2591699The romans also didn't have to deal with a bunch of artificial chemicals, hormones, and other "crap".The most they had to worry about was worms and diseases. But at least they could harvest the urine safely knowing it wont make the freaking frogs gay.
>>2591670Slow board means the thread can exist past the bump limit for days if not weeks. So it's wasteful and pointless to fill the catalogue with multiple threads of the same nature.We can, pretty much wait until page 10 before "needing" to make a new thread. Thus the polite thing to do is to wait.
>>2591706Yes it’s important to note that according to many resources on using piss as fertilizer, such as https://www.epicgardening.com/urine-as-fertilizer/, it’s important to note that tranny pee is basically pollution and should not be put on plants
>>2591698Any leafy greens are easy to grow. Arugula, spinach, kale, microgreens etc.. Just get some decent soil and plenty of sun and water. I've grown microgreens indoors next to a nice sunny window without even opening it.Microgreens are great if you're a beginner because you learn some basic gardening skills, they grow fast, and harvest effortlessly.
Anyone here have any experience rooting cut roses? Have had a snip in an enclosure for about a month and I just noticed it seems to have a white protrusion at the bottom that sort of looks like the epiphysis of a bone and that it's putting out new growth. Am I winning?
I'm this guy >>2590326I said fuck it and went ahead, the sun is JUSTing them. I'll keep you posted
>>2591774remember to take pics.
>>2591769I did some rose cuttings, they all took quite well. I took the cuttings late summer & early autumn. They were some common half-rewilded floribunda roses.I just tipped them in rooting hormone, stuck in soil, and covered with a severed bottle as a humidity dome, so I can't tell how do the forming roots look like.Just make sure that your roses are fine with their own roots, some roses are grafted for they do much better with good rootstock in terms of disease, cold resistance and acceptance of inferior soil.

Turk's Cap just grows right over it, same with elderberry and the mulberries obviously don't give a shit.I'm in the South though and shit grows so well here the "worrying about invasives" ship already sailed like 200 years ago lmao.
>>2591340NTA, but does that mean if I lived in an area that never went below freezing, I could grow basil trees?
think i'll just stuff my flower beds with corn next year
>>2591706While that is true, it is now a known and nearly inescapable factor of life.
>>2591904Pretty much. If it doesn't die from freezing it'll just keep growing. I get freezes but have a long growing season and have had basil get absolutely massive lol.
>>2591504shoot them with bb, you gave them their chance
>>2591962That's pretty cool, no way I can have it survive in soil temperature as temperature can go below -20 Celsius in winter here so I wonder if I could overwinter mine indoors so it can grow big.
>got some runner beans>says 120 days to harvest>have only 60days of guaranteed frost free days>variety grows up to 4m longI....I think I bit off more than I can chewFrost free days means it will likely get killed off before the seeds are ready.The size excludes it from using it in the tiny greenhouse I have.It's beans so even with deep pots, I could have extended the time by a couple of weeks, but we are past that point.And even then, I just had a frost day recently thats past the average frost day.
>>2591973>>have only 60days of guaranteed frost free daysGood lord, do you live in nothern Manitoba or something?
Just realized I mixed up my seeds and dumped all the long period germination seeds thinking they were the short period germination seeds that had gone bad.
>>2591977Well heres how it goes.I though I had 4-5 months of frost free days.Then last year we got out first frost in august.So, I think to myself okay we got 3months of frost free.Then this year, past the average frost day, we still get frosts. Had one couple of days ago. Which means the guarateed frost free day window has moved to like 60 days now.It's not like frost is in the day time, it's night time. But it's enough to kill off a lot of frost sensitive plants.So even though day time temps are fine, even though 6/7 days are warm enough. One frosty night time comes in ever so often to kill off a lot of stuff I want to grow.
>>2591983Still, where do you live that you get first frost in August? Lake Placid or something?
>>2591983>It's not like frost is in the day time, it's night time. But it's enough to kill off a lot of frost sensitive plants.I feel your pain. I just had frost yesterday and my peppers look pretty bad despite being covered so looks like this year won't be any different.This usually happens when I try to grow something that needs long summer or is intolerant of frost, I don't know why I even bother but I keep doing this.
>>2592007I rather not say>>2592031Greenhouse meme is the only answer it seems to have some kind of stability against night frosts.The other answer is to only plant things that can survive night time freezing for at least a night.
>>2587039worth buying a strawberry plant now and planting it for autumn harvest? Live in Germany missed the season for planting stuff not even my Okra seeds bloomed this year....
Greetings.Can you plant plants like mint and stinging nettle, which spread underground, without a root barrier, if they are on patches surrounded by frequently mowed grass? Or is this a terrible idea?
>>2592206howing grass will not do anything to prevent underground movement.In fact moving frequently biases plants that grow quickly and spread underground as you are raping the top layers.Short answer: It shouldn't work.

I'd never seen onions flower like this what's going on?
>>2592176Ive tried out a "growbar" i received at christmas for strawberries which ive used before except for tomatoes but the seedlings have been so slow.I get increasingly demotivated every year to grow shit from seeds when i have alot less success on the 2nd or 3rd year of using seeds from a packet too>>2592229Bolting because of heat i believe?
>>2592231I've seen the normal flowers but these look weird almost like miniature onions
>>2592229Is this your first year with walking onions?
hey /hgm/, i sowed multiple corn seeds per hole and now i have two corn seedlings growing in the same spot in some places. do i leave the extra one? do i remove it? do i try transplanting it (i have some spots where no corn has grown yet)?
>>2592308weaker ones get carefully removed and transplanted to some other spot, or fill in spots where it failed to germinate. or if you are lazy you throw it away.the earlier you do this, the less root mass it has, the easier it is to both seperate the plants and carefully move them.
>>2592206I plant a lot of mints and herbs along the foundation of my house so they are trapped between it and the grass. Seems to do fine to contain them, 6 years later you can see some mint trying to grow into the grass but not too much, and the pollinators absolutely love the mints when they are in flower later this summer.
Had a relapse on the old porn habit and coomed in some paper towels, now in the compost heap. You’re welcome, plants
>>2592322any tips on how to remove/separate them and transplant them?
>>2592291They are supposed to be grean onions not walking onions and all of the other onions are flowing normal
>>2592374Huh. Yeah, they do look different. Didn't realize other onions did that.
>>2592371Main thing is to go slow, don't let your hands outpace your brain and eyes.Thats the most important and general one.How close to each other are they?If there is some space and its early you can just separate them and move the soil clump.If they are literally right next to each other with roots intertwining with each other, you will have to pick up the soil ball with the roots for both and carefully loosen the soil with either fingers or water to get two separate plants that you wil replant.
>>2592374Chop it off and plant it, see what happens
I planted a plum tree well before the leaves of all the surrounding trees were deployed, turns out its spot has way less sun exposure than I thought it would (maybe about 3-4 hours) and I don't really have another place for it. Do you think it has the slightest hope?
>>2592406>>2592383I'll give it a couple days. Then I'll chop it off and try and rebury it.
>>2592348All crops and fruits this year will now FAILt. Godps. i know what you have done

I have a bunch of chicken bones I'm going to turn into bonemeal. Should I just add the bonemeal to my compost, or use it as a specific additive?
happy with the way its looking so far this year, had some serious nitrogen issues last year that left me with basically zilch
Made new thread >>2592597>>2592513Looks good>>2592512Maybe keep it just to add with new plantings of bulbs and stuff, unless it’s a ton>>2592413Looks like they could all grow new plants, onions are cool I keep trying to collect more kinds.
Hey i want it to get to 500
