Not at all. Here's a pic of a pallet being used as a mini garden. Since pallets are free and everywhere it's a cheap easy way to do these gardens:

2017-10-03 16:50:36 UTC  

I really dig that! Awesome job!

2017-10-03 16:51:19 UTC  

That's not mine but I plan to do these mixed in with my garden to save space.

2017-10-03 17:11:39 UTC  

Very pretty

2017-10-03 17:14:58 UTC  

We love the pallet planters at my house. Be sure to use pallets that are not chemically treated. They have stamps on them with different designations.

2017-10-03 17:30:04 UTC  

^^^Yes. Whenever using wood to make a garden container make sure it's not chemically treated.

2017-10-03 19:54:18 UTC  

@Deleted User O wouldn't use pallets for gardening, fam. It's usually made from pressure treated lumber

2017-10-03 19:54:47 UTC  

Oops, didn't read all the way down

My bounty, from a 4x4 plot of soil

2017-10-08 22:31:06 UTC  

Does anyone have any suggestions for what to plant in a fall garden? I’m limited to an area that has practically full shade, so I’m restricted in what could successfully grow there.

2017-10-08 22:32:13 UTC  

If nothing is suitable for that spot, I could always purchase pots for my porch.

2017-10-09 01:01:26 UTC  

You could try some root vegetables like beets, carrots, or potatoes or some leafy greens. I know they don’t really need full sun but I’m sure they’d want at least a little bit still can’t hurt to try

2017-10-09 03:43:00 UTC  

Ok, I’ll see what I can do. 👍🏻 Thanks

My Japanese eggplants still going strong

2017-10-22 01:15:08 UTC  

Nice. Now bread it and fry to make is sufficiently not healthy 😃

2017-10-22 01:58:08 UTC  


2017-10-23 02:19:15 UTC  

Great eggplant!

So this seems like the best place to ask but does anyone have tips for treating pink eye in cows?

2017-12-18 11:40:21 UTC  

antibiotics and eye patches, keep as much sun off of them as possible. That's what the eye patches are for. Back on the farm we'd have some cows get it so bad the vet would stitch the eye shut until it cleared up. But it's been about 10 years since I've messed with cattle so there could be some updated way to treat pinkeye. @varjack WA

You probably need to get the vet out there to check out the situation. They can also give you tips on how to control it, flies help spread it. But that's probably not a problem this time of year.

For some reason whenever we try to grow strawberries they don't do to well here

2018-01-30 23:23:57 UTC  

Is it because of our climate/environment

2018-01-30 23:24:09 UTC  

Can I improve it somehow

2018-01-31 20:04:26 UTC  

Strawberries are usually like weeds. What state are you in?

2018-02-17 00:17:37 UTC  

Anyone have any experience with edible/medicinal mushroom cultivation?

2018-02-17 00:35:51 UTC  

I've helped my mom grow some in logs before. I think they where morales?

2018-02-24 05:14:08 UTC  

Not sure if anyone has posted this guy's videos before, even as an urban farmer in Canada he does quite well and has some great tips. My husband and I have been enjoying them....

2018-02-25 19:14:09 UTC  

First lil red potato of this crop!! It’s so cute I had to share!

2018-02-25 19:14:10 UTC

2018-02-25 20:15:38 UTC  

Spuds! 😃

2018-02-25 22:46:55 UTC  

Spuds! 😀

2018-02-25 23:43:16 UTC  

Spuds! 😀

2018-02-27 20:54:53 UTC  

@Olivia M Looks fantastic!

2018-03-01 15:01:48 UTC  

Ok. Really excited about this. Not gardening related per say, but anyone use one? Our yard only ironically for Florida needs mowing 5 times a month. Bought some corn seeds while there. Have had some decent success with that.

2018-03-01 15:10:16 UTC  

@Olivia M and I will soon be pulling Winter crops. Back before citrus became king, Central FL did grow cotton, corn, tobacco even etc. Tried cotton, seeds came from Oregon and think were duds. I like to keep garden natural and how it would have been for a settler minus watering. Just no farmland around here anymore and enjoy growing crops you see further North of here.

2018-03-01 15:11:19 UTC  

Corn is hit or miss.
