  • Do you ever use a snow blower on your lawn? Where do you blow the snow?

    Best answer: actually yes, my husband does to make a "race track" around the yard for our small dog, so he has a place to relieve himself, and who then runs through the snow and becomes a snowball anyway - we just move the snow to the center of the yard

  • Do you grow potatoes in your garden?

    Best answer: I have the room to plant a large patch and keep changing the area every year so we don't reuse a patch again for potatoes for at least 5 years (10 would be even better). We have clay soil, not the best, but we do OK if we don't add lime or ashes to the soil and shake each potato to be planted in sulfur. I... show more
    Best answer: I have the room to plant a large patch and keep changing the area every year so we don't reuse a patch again for potatoes for at least 5 years (10 would be even better). We have clay soil, not the best, but we do OK if we don't add lime or ashes to the soil and shake each potato to be planted in sulfur. I put 10-10-10 in a trench, cover it, and add a dollop of triple phosphate every 16", lay a potato on the top of that and cover them.. The rows are about 20" apart so I can run the roto tiller between them for weeding and loosening the dirt for hilling. When the plants start to flower, side dress them and cover the fertilizer as you hill the dirt around each plant. Cover any potatoes that poke their heads above the dirt. Every morning, before it gets hot, I walk along the rows and knock Japanese beetles, cucumber beetles and occasional Colorado potato beetles off the plants and into a jar with a bit of alcohol. Yes, potatoes are cheap, but ours do taste better. This year we grew Yukon golds, russets, superiors, and Adirondack reds instead of the usual red Pontiacs or red Norlands.

  • How to keep beavers from killing my trees?

    I live ear a wetland and beavers go onto my property and routinely gnaw at my trees. Is there any deterrent I can use to keep them away? I suppose I could build a metal fence around each tree or put sharp metal nails into the bark, but I'd prefer to keep things natural.

  • Will Roundup kill my hostas around my vegetable garden?

    Best answer: There are different flavors of roundup. The total vegetation flavor will kill everything including hosts if you get it down to the roots. It will also leave your ground incapable of growing grass for quite a while. It's really.not that difficult to dig up vistas. I'd dig them up.
