>>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?
