Suggestions from meetings
At our meetings we sometimes collect suggestions from participants about what they do in their gardens. Some of those suggestions are collected here.
As this website develops there will be information here about growing vegetables. Some will be quite basic such as which vegetables are sown directly into the soil (by seed) and which should be started from seedlings. Some will be about different practices.
For example, in this picture the tomatoes are planted close together, tied to stakes, and the suckers removed as the plant grows. Is that necessary? Are there other ways to grow tomatoes?
Our information on fruits and vegetables
As a group, we've compiled some information that may help you, too.
- Planning your garden
- What are the easiest vegetables to grow?
- Organic fertilizers
- Summary of Nov. 2011 meeting: Pests and planning
It was the consensus of opinion at the November 2009 meeting that raspberries are so easy to grow that everyone ought to be growing them.
Why you might want to grow your own vegetables and how to go about it are the subjects of our monthly meetings. The meetings are also a great place to get new ideas and ask questions.
John's Blog has information on when to plant different vegetables and also about cover crops and companion planting. There is now a whole season's worth of comments about various things that have happened in this suburban garden and new ideas he has come across during the year.
