Critters that dine on our gardens can be so frustrating! Deer and Rabbits are some common issues, these articles have some tips to help you. I have been doing deep mulch since reading your glowing experiences. I was also worried about herbicide issues when my cucumbers failed to thrive. But I replanted a little later in the season and they eventually took off. I have had great luck so far, only one year in. However, I have used old hay that had been sitting outside composting in the elements for over a year. Maybe you can buy big round bales and let them sit somewhere outside for a year or two until any possible herbicides have had a chance to decompose. It’s usually cheap or even free to get from people who can’t feed their spoiled hay to their livestock. So sorry for your bad luck. It’s so disappointing to lose a garden or even just a crop after all the optimism and effort that was put into it. Stewart brought her gardening talents to the concrete jungle back in 2008. That’s when she made an agreement with management at the Westport post office to plan a community garden in front of the facility. Sometimes there will be problems in the vegetable garden. There is always a cause and there is often a cure or control. You’re welcome am66,  I hope you continue to enjoy your bird friendly garden and see lots of nice visitors, especially during the spring season.  If you have a nesting box you may find a Blue Tit will find your garden and maybe raise a brood.  There is lots of information on this website for nesting boxes and attracting more birds into the garden.  If you do want to add a nesting box, for better success try facing it between North and East direction and about 10ft off the ground.  For sparrows you could put a box under the eaves of the house.      Good luck, sounds like you have a lovely garden with shrubs to attract the birds 🙂 I am turning 70 in a few months and Hubs is 74. So it may be that we are more susceptible than you younger gardeners. But it turns out oak leaves harbor mites, and we have been bitten by them. I had a terrible time with what I thought was chiggers in the garden, worse than I could remember since we started gardening here in 2011. And now I have a rash on my leg I cannot get to go away. I’ve been researching and I think that one of two things have happened: 1) I am being bitten by oak mites and not chiggers, and they are triggering an allergy of some kind; and/or 2) I have gotten fungus on my hands from the wood chip pile, and then scratched my chigger (or mite, whichever) bites, thus allowing the fungus to get into my skin. Hubs has had a rash on one of his legs for about six months. We’ve shown our rashes to doctors and they say, “contact dermatitis”. Though the ointments they prescribe do not help. Hubs had an additional problem in that he was shoveling wood chips from the pile and got in a cloud of “dust” which must’ve been fungal in nature. All night that night, he hacked and coughed. Fortunately, those symptoms were gone by morning, and he has since had a chest xray as the normal part of a checkup and everything was ok. But it was kind of scary. We’ll be going back to the doctor and telling them what we think might be causing our rashes now, since doctors these days won’t waste their time doing any detective work and it’s just all too easy to lump every skin problem into “contact dermatitis” and send the patient away. The only problem is, we have to wait almost a month to get in to see the doctor. Sheesh. So much can happen in a month. So I’m trying to think about what I might try in the meantime. Maybe tea tree oil, neat? Just had similar experience this year. Moved far, far away, bought a farm in a climate where people actually grow crops…not just grass hay. Inquired about the “free” compost pile at landfill then got schooled by local gardeners that some farmers spray “Grazon” (had NEVER heard of it!) and the likes and to be very wary about buying topsoil/compost from local sources. Was so excited to find big round bales of straw on my place left from past owner. Built amazing lasagne style gardens with this straw and also mulched top of most beds with it. Found out it was sprayed and did my best to get the mulch off but the lasagne beds were hopeless. Wow. I lost almost everything that had been planted in those beds and that was the only variable that was different. I’m daunted by the garden I’ve inherited Sorry to hear about your garden! Such a bummer. 🙁 I guess we were lucky and were only out about $800 in death dirt and dead plants. Local organic gardens lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thanks Dow. Thanks Monsanto. I had an experience this year with my mulch garden. I used a sprinkler with our well water (artesian water with high pH) and watered during a hot day (95+) temps. We usually use a soaker hose or rainwater, but tried the sprinkler this year. It totally burned the tomato, potato, and melon leaves. The rest of the garden didn’t look that great either. Another lesson learned after over 30 years of gardening. To be honest, this whole issue bothers me very, very deeply. Composted manure is cheap, it’s natural (most of the time), and is readily available. If we can no longer use it on our gardens, what then? The same goes for hay mulch… I can hardly stand the thought of being stripped of these options due to herbicides. I’m still ruminating on these thoughts… I’ll share more in an upcoming post. Mulch is one of the unsung heroes of landscape design. It’s highly portable, malleable and, for certain types of mulch, you can even make your own! Areas shaded by large trees can be transformed overnight from eyesores to eye-openers by applying an attractive mulch. For all its value, there is much misunderstanding about the use of this landscaping solution, and I receive numerous questions about garden mulch from readers. There are as many types of landscaping mulch as there are landscape challenges. Mulch is sometimes used in conjunction with landscape fabrics. Pests and problems come up in any garden setting. To have the best garden you can have you must go on the offensive to treat garden pest problems in your landscape. Find tips to peacefully coexist with dogs, pests, and prevent any of your garden problems! How do cutting gardens work? Most are problems gardeners experience almost anywhere, but some problems are more specific to our area. In our resource guide, we have followed an integrated pest management approach where simple, safe, and less invasive strategies are listed first. This is the same approach we use with visitors to our walk-in Plant Doctor service located in the Kemper Center for Home Gardening as well as with callers to our phone-in Horticultural Answer Service. Recommendations using chemical pesticides, though not excluded in an integrated pest management approach, generally appear lower down in the list of recommended strategies. Strictly organic strategies are pointed out. You can look up pest and problems by plant or pest category. I read this post with great interest, as I garden on limestone and so I have brought in many things to try to improve my soil. My most recent efforts have been with wood chips due to becoming acquainted with a man who has a tree-trimming business, and leaves, which we have picked up curbside from people who have our phone number to call when they have them bagged and ready to take away. I hate to tell you that we will no longer be doing either of these things. eracto VigRX Plus TestX Core BioBelt Eron Plus Zevs Maca du Pérou erogan deseo sterydy
