I have a small garden so I use my grass clippings for the deep mulch method. For the first time since moving to Idaho (southwestern corner) I have a garden that has been producing in all the heat we get each summer. Unfortunately weeds started taking over my grass and I had to apply broad-leaf herbicide. Lucky for me I read some where that it kills tomato plants before I applied those grass cuttings to my garden. 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 deep mulch, but I use my own herbicide free grass. I let the yard get embarrassingly long, then mow it. I let it dry, rake it, and deep mulch the garden. You can buy or make compost, but if you buy, it must be certified compost. If you use manure, use something like chicken manure because they don’t eat hay. The Grazon can persist through digestion unfortunately. Where: Indoor and outdoor gardens and can be very destructive in greenhouses. This was an interesting possibility that came up when I started talking with my local gardening neighbor. Animal manures can be high in salts, which can cause issues when compost with high-levels of salt is added to a vegetable garden. However, I ruled out salt in my compost for these reasons: Have you added a commercial potting mix or soil to your window boxes or planting beds that contains a moisture-retentive polymer? These ploymers soak up water and then slowing release back into the soil; they have a clear jelly like appearance when hydrated. Another possibility is slime molds, a single-celled organism, that lives on dead plant material, often in lawns or garden beds. If you suspect slime mold, take a sample to a nearby office of the state agriculture office for identification. You can dig around slime mold organisms and remove them from the garden and dispose of them, but the spores that begin their growth may remain in the garden and form new organisms. Those are your only options. If you love your yard/garden, suck it up and exterminate them yourself. If you can’t bear the thought of killing a mole, then you’d better get used to having your yard tilled up at random by blind, subterranean rodents. Hi Jill, If you’re going to do raised beds, look into square foot gardening if you haven’t already. The author Mel Bartholomew has a blend that he uses for soil that drains well, but still retains moisture. It’s what I want to do next year. We had this exact same thing happen in our garden here in Prince George, BC and after talking to a local soil expert, doing some research as well as an experiment, came to the same conclusion. It is aminopyralid poisoning. Our potatoes and tomatoes are the most seriously affected with the mutant leaves that look like fiddleheads. Any legumes just did not grow at all and neither did the cucumbers or melons. It has been very disheartening as this was the first year I had started all my own seedlings as well. We have begun turning our small city lot into a permaculture garden to tea people what you can do in a small space. You can check out our Facebook page at Because our yard is small we cannot produce enough organic matter ourselves so were excited to find a source of manure from a friend who has horses. He buys hay locally but we have since found out that almost all of the people who sell hay in the area spray their crops with herbicide for thistles, clover, etc. Here we thought we were doing such a good thing for our soil and it turns out we poisoned it instead! We shared what we experienced with local growers at our local farmers’ market. Some were aware of the problem but others were not and this could impact their livelihood in a huge way. Suddenly, things that have been safe to use on your garden can no longer be considered to be safe. It is not just the hay and the straw but the manure as well. I drew a picture of a garden and a sidewalk being built around the outside. The height of the inside (garden) was 17 ft and the width was 20 feet. Then, I made a 3-foot corner around all four corners of the garden. So, the height of the exterior was 17 + 3 + 3 = 23 feet, while the width was 3 + 3 + 20 = 26 feet. So, the perimeter of the inside is 74 feet and the perimeter of the outside is 98 feet. I added these two to get 172 feet as the total perimeter. Inexorably, I deemed that 172 feet of lumber was needed for the perimeter of the walk. Is that safe to assume or am I misinterpreting the question/what it is asking for? I am getting a bit « tripped up » of the fact that the problem gave me that, « to make the forms for the cement, we will need to buy some 2-by-4-inch lumber. » We luckily have a source that swears they assay each load of compost before they use in the 3- and 4-way garden soil mixes. We used them again this year when we remade the front yards raised beds. Everything we planted flourished. All Gardenista stories—from garden tours and expert advice to hand tools and furniture roundups. My garden is too small Having a variety of herbs growing in the garden means you can easily pick and add them straight into food that is being prepared. 1. Draw a picture of the physical situation. See the figure. We’ve called the width of the garden x (the top and bottom portions of the fence), and the length of the garden y (the left and right sides). Note also that the total area of Sam’s garden must be $A = 400 \text{ ft}^2$. There will, however, be others that do not share the same enthusiasm when it comes to gardening, and will simply give their gardens a ‘once over’ with the lawn mower every few weeks. Then there will be the Problem Neighbours who see their gardens as an excuse to use it as a makeshift area in which to store excess rubbish. So we have a shill from the biotech industry “Michelle Jones”?? The whole point to growing your own garden is to have CLEAN healthy food. This blog pointed out that chemicals persist through compost and manure. The whole point of GMO Roundup Ready hay is to be able to spray it with Roundup(glyphosate) and/or not have newly seeded alfalfa die from previous applications of Roundup. The science you reference studies glyphosate alone. It does not include the inert ingredients in Roundup or the surfactants that are normally mixed in and sprayed with Roundup (glyphosate). This makes make it impossible to know what the hazards really are: The truth about Roundup half life and Roundup persisting in the soil for years: Let’s not forget the lettuce that had glyphosate in it a year after it was applied Tonus Fortis Celuraid Muscle VigRX Plus Atlant Gel erogan Eron Plus power up premium power up premium power up premium power up premium
