AVN Too much... just find something you like but can't find and I'll sniff it out.

I grow these little red/black chili peppers that are burning hot, native to Vietnam or whatever, I LOVE them. You can only find them dried in supermarkets, never fresh.

Asian coriander is another favorite herb of mine, but is very common.

KING JAMES Started out by double digging (with a little green compost mixed into the bottom layer) and followed that up with companion planting and had the best harvest I have ever had this year.

That would be awesome. But right now I have no idea about asian herbs. I'm terrible with asian cuisine.

But I will look into it. I have a lot of asian supermarkets here in NYC so it might not be necessary but thanks for the offer. BTW what would you recommend?

AVN HAHAHA!! Dude that totally made my day, thanks for that.

I'm trying to be less open about it, Mods already warned me about inappropriate content so many times, I don't want to get another warning. I guess I'm just too inappropriate for the more conservative types. But who is to judge what is inappropriate? Here, it's normal.

If it's green it counts.

AVN I have a garden, but disclosing such information might get the DEA on my rear end. I try to avoid composting, it's great but I've never been able to stomach the smell. Coffee grinds and banana peels help, but not much.

snuffy317 + 1 on J. BAKERS square foot gardening. Walking planks across the center and conduit trellis' on 2 sides for climbing vines. An amazing amount of produce from such a compact area, unlimited options. Snuffy317

dr.tran Oh thanks but its okay. I have been collecting my hamsters bedding and planed on composting that. Just been busy and haven't gotten the chance to touch the garden yet.

I'm going to get some of the plants for you and grow it indoors for now. Who knows? Maybe mines is more hardy and might work better. Or at the very least, some insurance just in case.

That's okay, I still have a couple sprigs in the pot that are still kicking. I'm getting planters and a new light soon, so I'll give that a go.

Do you want any rabbit manure for the garden still? I'll start collecting so you'll have a nice clean pile by next week. Oh, and by the way, I'd like to biy a moina starter culture from you.

You're a little late for warm crops like tomatoes though. I put mine down second week of September. You are a little warmer than my area though

mistergreen I dug into the bottom of my compost the other day. I have black gold. The stuff looks amazing. The egg shells are still in tact.. It's best to pulverize the darn thing.

I wish I knew more people who garden. I could probably supply like five different compost heaps year round and my parents don't want even one in the yard.
Awesome thanks! But I'll give it to you for free. I have just been lazy trying to find them in stores. So i put this off for more than a year. lol

GraphicGr8s Mach six, try using the wire for concrete reinforcing. I've built so many from one roll. Openings are about 4x4 or 6x6. easy to get your hand in to grab the harvest.
