    Home Gardens, Market Gardens, and Commercial Crops
    I am new to homesteading and I am making a new garden. I found a way to screen out the rocks and sod which a new garden seems to offer plenty off.
  3. Tiller modification

    Home Gardens, Market Gardens, and Commercial Crops
    I know that tillers are meant to break up clods of sane soil NOT dig in packed clay but, that is what i need to do. I have used the tiller in clay before and made a certain amount of progress. The big thing is that the flat blades can't bite. So, my idea is to weld teeth like nubs on the the...

  5. Cat/duck proof gardens

    Homesteading Questions
    Hello everyone! There are a few raised beds within my duck fencing that I stopped planting in a year ago because there is a cat that uses them as a litter box and my ducks can hop up and eat whatever is beginning to sprout. I was hoping some of you may have some suggestions as to what I could...

  9. It is August: how did your gardens do?

    My Hugelkulture bed was a bit of a disappointment as things looked like they were not getting enough water, even though the rest of the garden looked lush. On the GOOD side, the vegetables at the base of the hugelkulture bed looked unusually well. I think the vegetables at the base of the bed...
  10. DIY PVC Hoophouse

    Gardening & Plant Propagation
    I've been looking around for examples of what people have done to build hoop houses and it doesn't seem like there are many who document the entire process (not on forums anyways, I've found a few on youtube that are good examples) for people to find in the future who feel like embarking on the...
