Use this formula:

Square footage X depth (as a percentage of a foot... 6" = .5, 4" = .333, 3" = .25). Divide that by 27 and you have your cubic yardage.

I know they like it hot. Down here south of I-10, we will be in the 90* range soon enough. I did soak them overnight prior to potting them. I'm just impatient and want to have okra as early as possible.


You can try using a knife or nail file to make a small nick in the shell but you're still gonna need to keep the sprouts warm way past Easter .

Planted yellow and red onions today as well as Chinese cabbage .

I'm kinda limited now as my garden is confined to the fenced in yard (dang hogs) so I grow everything in large pots or water troughs until I decide where to put the raised beds.

Starting Early Girls and peppers this weekend . Magged's got me beat but I'll catch up . My indoor Habs and Reapers are starting to bloom . cheers

ok Derek, i'm sorta trying this...substituted cottonseed meal for whole ground cornmeal...hope that works...puttin' it on one row of onions every 10 days...water/meal/everything...i stir it everytime i walk by the buckit and yep, it duz stink

Let it sit about 7-10 days. Careful when you open the lid. The smell is powerful. I then get a real fine paint strainer and pour the tea through it into another bucket. I then use it as a ground drench to water and/or as spray.

Spread out the strained alfafa bits in the garden, flower beds etc.. It's basically alfalfa meal at that point.

I'm not a rose plant guy. But when I was reading up on Alfalfa teas in the past it seems lots of people use it on their roses with really good results.

The cornmeal is optional. I just like using it because it has antifungal properties.

The cottonseed meal is a great source of nitrogen. It's a slow release nitrogen that will be available to the plants over a few months. Alfalfa is lower in nitrogen, but has trace minerals plus triaconatol a natural growth hormone.

Hey guys,

I'm building some raised beds this year, out of used pallets (box style).
I plan on using pallet wood for the bottoms also, with holes drilled for drainage.
Should I treat the wood with a preservative like Thompson's, to help prevent from rotting?
The boards are thicker than most pallets I see and appear to be oak.

What type of liner should I include if any?

Any pointers appreciated, 1st year going with raised beds due to limited growing/garden area.


Some folks mouths, flat out run their minds.

I'm thinking 4 boards up, about 16" high.

I need to add a bottom to them. The area is sloped and a lot of rain water runoff goes through there.
Will use bricks on the corners to keep them off the ground. So each bed will be totally enclosed, bottoms and sides.

I had 187 yards delivered the other day. Paid $4,510.

But that was for Work, not for my garden. Well, a couple yards made it home to my garden. Most of it stayed on the jobsite.

The cheaper landscape fabric will work to keep the soil in the bed .
