    Glass gem corn harvest

    Thought id post of my glass gem corn harvest! I wanted to plant corn in my garden for about 7 years and FINALLY got around to it this year. Some of them ended up as sweet corn hybrids so instead of saving those I just cooked and ate them after harvest, pretty good meal I'd say! I harvested...

    Question about adding used coop bedding to garden

    Hi guys. I’m 3 months into having chickens & I was wondering how to use their dirty poo bedding. Does anybody add the used bedding to their garden in the fall and then till it in when spring arrives? I use pine shavings. How long should it compost before adding to the garden? Thanks in advance!

    We have a garden that had produced very well this year. In fact, it's our best garden in 6 years and two homes. I have a real passion for growing food we can eat. It's always great to have a salad fresh picked form the garden or cook a meal with fruit and vegetables, and even meat, harvested...

    Mealworm Frass as Fertilizer

    I raise mealworms, and I was wondering if I could use their frass (or poop) as plant fertilizer. If so, how much, and how often to apply it? Thank you.
