Great Gardening Tips


Salad
Posted on 06.01.12 by thegardengossip @

I love a good salad…I like the cucumbers, tomatos and different kinds of lettuce but to make it really good…put some craisons and candied walnuts with some croutons…oh it is so good. And it is best when it is slightly chilled which is why I can not bring it to work because there is no fridge here!

Gardens!
Posted on 03.29.11 by thegardengossip @

Finally it is starting to get a little warmer out there. I have been prepping the garden and laying out the compost to make sure that it is going to be all set for that warm week in May after the frosts are all done so that I can finally plant those vegetables that I am going to try my luck at!

Water Retention and Celery
Posted on 02.25.11 by thegardengossip @

If you have water retention problems then you watn to have more celery, cucumber and parsley to your diet. And they are so easy to grow organically too. And you want to be sure that you drink a lot of water as well. This is a problem that can be controlled naturally with healthy foods.

The Weather
Posted on 07.17.09 by thegardengossip @

Well, the weather has really taken a toll on my tomato plants. I am just so upset about this. We have had just so much rain and no sun that everything is really green but there are not flowers and there are no produce. I have no tomatos or the flowers but the plants are beautiful looking and smell great…but you can’t eat the plant..at least I don’t want to!

Crops
Posted on 07.16.09 by thegardengossip @

The weather men are saying that this year the crops will not be as well as they have been in the past because of the unusually high water count and the lack of sun we have been having. Even on days when it is not raining it is still very overcast and the sun is just not out there. Why can’t it be nice and sunny during the day and rain at night ?

My Topsy Turvy
Posted on 06.30.09 by thegardengossip @

With all the lack of sun we have been having … my topsy turvy plants are just not doing very good at all. I am just so disappointed with this because I had such high hopes for it. Especially since I can not plant anything in my yard. I used to have a beautiful vegetable garden at my parents house but for the past few years I have been really struggling to have a nijce garden!

Berries
Posted on 01.20.09 by thegardengossip @

I love seeing the red berries on bushes after it has just snowed. I think it is just so pretty and I am actually surprised that the berries are still there. They must not be edible because the birds usually take every last berry anywhere! I used to have a blueberry bush that was wild and I could never beat the birds – because the second that those berries were ripe they would take them. I should have moved it and put something around it so that they wouldn’t get it but I didn’t. I figured that it is there so they can have them 🙂

Healing Herbs
Posted on 01.16.09 by thegardengossip @

I personally love to grow my own herbs and I think that many of them have great healing properties such as Echinacea. Many doctors frown upon herbs and herbal remedies but I have to wonder if it is because of selfish and money motivated reasons. I think that herbs are amazing if they are used properly and that they have properties modern man-made medicines may not have. Not to mention that many medicines have these herbs in them. They are now saying that this herb may not help your colds but I disagree. I think that this herb could help a cold but many herbs are best at preventing things. I think that herbs and herbal teas and tinctures are best for those preventative methods.

Peppermint
Posted on 05.15.08 by thegardengossip @

There are somethings that you want to make sure that you know what you are doing when you plant them because they can be quite invasive. And I know this from terrible experiences!! Peppermint and Catnip are just very invasive plants so make sure you plant them in places that you really would like them to spread but after a few years they really will spread like wildfire!!!

Keep Veggies Fresh In The Fridge
Posted on 05.06.08 by thegardengossip @

So you just picked or got all of your fresh vegetables and you are putting them away in the fridge. Well, if you would like them to last longer without going moldy or mildewy within the first 2 or 3 days then you wan to line your veggie draws with sponges and put the vegetables on the sponges. It will collect the water and eliminate the mold.

Your Hard Fruit
Posted on 10.16.07 by thegardengossip @

Do you ever get hard ripe fruit like peaches that you would really like to each but you just can not because they are just so hard . Just put the fruit with a ripe fruit or a ripe banana in a plastic bag for a few hours. The ripe fruit will soften the others because it releases their natural gas…pretty interesting actually. Just don’t leave them together for more than a day because you will have moldy squishy fruit!

Great Pumpkin!
Posted on 09.26.07 by thegardengossip @

Growing a pumpkin is just so easy to do! You just have to start very early. Right now it is too late to start growing them but you can enjoy them and go pumpkin picking! Pumpkins just need a lot of water. But anyone can grow that really big pumpkin and can have their own mini pumpkin patch if they wish too. You just have to start way back in July!!!
