Here are my thoughts:In my last raised bed garden, the raised beds went right up to and along the fence. In so doing, I had a weed problem. I ended up taking all the fencing down (no small task, since I had put chicken wire on top of the ground and co…

At my old place, when I’d switched to raised beds, I’d used a spin on Mel’s mix (compost/vermiculite/peat) from the Square Foot Gardening book with decent results. I used mostly my own compost, existing soil, with less vermiculite and peat added than …

How to Transform Your Yard Into a Survival Garden

December 15, 2017 Adam Torkildson 0

There are two kinds of preppers: those who plan to run for the hills and those who hope to stay put for as long as possible. If you are the latter kind, you’ve undoubtedly outfitted your home with every conceivable advantage, from security windows and doors to months-worth of shelf-safe foods. However, if you haven’t […]

Not sure what area you live in, but I have heard of it around here before. I’d like to try some, if you have enough. If you get a bunch of request, feel free to move me down the list. Are you interested in trading something for them? I do seed swaps sometimes

I harvested one top from a rabbit tobacco plant , it is full of seeds so if anyone wants a few seeds let me know .
The plant will grow to around 6 feet or taller it will have long fuzzy leaves 10 to 14 inches and about four inches wide . There are several types so look them up for a better idea of what the plant looks like . The seeds are real small , a pinch of seeds would be 25 to 50 seeds hard to judge the amount . It grows here and there will be several more plants ready in a little while .
Will try and get some regular tobacco seeds also if I can find some tops too that did not get topped off the plants when the fields were topped .
The old seeds I spoke about last year did not sprout so the two quart jars I have are not good they were around 30 years old .

Hi there! Thanks for sharing the informative post on tree pruning along with the pictures. This will help a lot for doing the pruning. Tree pruning is necessary in order to have the proper form and shape of any tree. The proper tree pruning along with tree training extends the life of fruit for all fruit trees by allowing light penetration and air flow to the trees. Along with tree pruning, tree removal, tree trimming is also very necessary in order to maintain the tree.
