It would be soo neat to grow all that. We USED to grow some veggies (tomatoes, pepper, cucumbers, and the like), but after we moved - we not only have a much smaller yard, but it doesn't seem to want to grow anything. I've thought about having the soil sent in and tested, but not really sure how to go about it.

Hi
I plant my own veggies & herbs. The planting days days in the almanac give you a guideline for planting. Different plants require different amounts of time from the date they are planted to maturity. depending on the area you live in and what you are trying to grow. I live in Canada & the growing season here can be short I normally get a jump on the season by starting plants inside and trance planting them outside by mid April (about a month before the almanac recommends) this means that you have to keep a eye on the plants and cover them over night if there is frost in the area but it gives you extra growing time and the plant yields more vegetables during the season.

No, I dont' work with herbs. I wish I did. I'm just really terrible about knowing how to season things and with what -- so I'm always looking for new information where ever I can get it.

BTW, got a Q? Any1 who plants, do you go by the 'planting days' like in the almanac, or do you just plant on any days?

Hi, yes, I'm doing some for teas, & of course some will be used for spices, but the main goal is for herbal medicine.

I'm finally following a deep desire. .. to grow, gather, harvest, work up the herbs, to make concoction, creams, poultrices,etc..... I could go on & on...LOL!!!

It's in my blood, I've just kept it supressed all these years! My late uncle was a 6th generation herb doctor! Not that I'm planning on being the 7th, but then again.... you never know!!!!

Do you work with herbs?

Hi Froggz, welcome aboard.

I'd love to hear more about the herbs. Are you talking about using them mostly for supplements/medicine or for seasonings, etc?
