I think Simone meant to send this to the entire team. "I just purchased a worm farm ( house) how do I know if I should order 500 or 1000 worms?"
speaking of flowers, do you have any suggestions for Petunias? Mine seem to die by the end of July...

Some cosmos have foliage that is feathery (like dill, say) and other cosmos has foliage that looks for all the world like ragweed. You might have to fend off allergic neighbors!
wilting away...drying up
I tricked my picky eater to eat kale. The kale salad you can get at Sam's Club, said it was coleslaw he ate it.
twice a week watering....apparently that's not enough...
*thank you (whoops)
I shredded beets with carrots and made muffins, kids and adults eat them, no questions asked.
after picking kale try massaging it with a little olive oil and this will make it easier to chew.Kids may like this better and especially if you add some sweet dried cranberries.
Hi Lisa, where do I get a recipe for muffins with beets and carrots? If I give yo my email, can you send it to me?
Drammatic at Hahn Nursery and Chapon’s Greenhouse
how do you feel about lanscape fabric as a weed barrier?
Is it mulch or compost on Cemetary Rd?
How much Drammatic would need to be put in Earth Box ?
Hi Doug- you talk most weeks about mulching, do you mean actually mulching as you would in flower beds?
landscape fabric is EVIL
do you try to pick up the numerous layers of newspapers at seasons end or leave it there and hope it dissolves by Spring?
It's Dinelle like Dinner bell. haha!When I called Ross township she didn't say you needed to be a resident. She also said to go after 3:30 after the workers go home.
she said you DIDN'T need to be a resident
I have some landsape that is not plastic, I'm going to give it a try, I'll let you know at the end of the season
What do you use for drainage in Grow Bags ?
where can I buy Earth Friendly Fertilizer? Thanks
Joanne, I've used the back fabric landscape weedstop. Worked one or two years, but really heated soil in the sun, baked some plants. I might try the straw as mulch this year. Good luck
JP - thanks!
