Some gardeners grow a fall garden outdoors, some plant an eclectic group of flowers and veggies in a heated greenhouse, and others plant an herb garden indoors. Then there are those of us die-hards that practice all of the above in determined to feed the plant addiction year-round.
When starting out with seeds good soil then place the seed then cover loosely with more soil then water is this correct? then I want to be sure that the seeds are in the sun light and lightly watered...
Utilizing the method of Integrated Pest Management how I garden - period. I'm probably going to get strung up by the organic gardening police for that admission; but before you set the torch afire let me say this.
Throughout the cities and suburbs, grass clippings, leaves, other general yard waste, household waste and kitchen waste are put out on the sidewalk to be collected by the trash man. This is just energy misplaced.

It's no secret that suburbia is known for it's cookie-cutter foundation plantings and grand expansions of perfectly coiffed grass. Although, I have seen some fabulous yard make-overs where they've used plants that have made me almost slam into the car in front of me. But, I digress.

Fall is the time of year that I start getting concerned for my basil. I'm pretty lousy at calculating how much longer I'll be able to harvest before the frost nails it. Mother Nature has her own calendar no matter where we mark our frost dates.
