Open Garden Saturday, April 17 from 1-4

Hi fellow gardeners!I'm hosting an open garden at my place this Saturday. The location is 5710 NE 56th St, 98105 and I'm trying to raise proceeds for www.springintobed.org which is bringing organic gardens to low income people next month.I feel like my garden might be of interest to those of you who want to grow more of your food year round since that is exactly what I do - I grow all or our veggies and once the 22 fruits I have planted mature they…See More

"Thanks! My plan is to let the side do it's own thing so self-sowing is fine by me. And the chickens will help keep things mowed too. :) I'm hoping to get some things from that side for us but by and large it will be chicken forage."

Hi Annette,
John here... I wanted to say I really appreciated your talk last nite at the gen meeting.
Amazing what you're doing. Did you say you're growing black pepper? I thought it is a tropical vine - are you growing it outdoors or indoors?
Cheers!

HI Annette....I am answering for John because he is so overloaded......we grow sweet potatoes in boxes....the soil is warmer in the box....I grew a few in the soil last year also, raised bed, and I also got a good crop....this year we are growing our own slips that we started from some of our sweet potatoes last year....we have grown Georgia Jets and Carolina Rubys...the Carolina Rubies are a shorter season by 5-20 days...Sue

Hi Annette- Thanks again for organizing the roots and tubers buy- and for your excellent post on bone broths! I wish I had ordered soup bones when we ordered our 1/4 beef! I'll know for next time! Susan
