Brussels sprouts 13 Jun, Kathy (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Hi! When it says "S" it means start seeds inside, when it says "T" it means to transplant those seedlings outside in the garden. When it says "P" for plant outside does that mean you plant the seeds outside? I'm unsure because, take Brussels Sprouts for example - It says "S" in March and "P" in May and June; what is the "P" referring to? I'm just confused because some vegetables have an "S" and a "T". Thanks for any help you can give me!!! "Plant in garden" means to sow seed directly into the garden where you want the plant to grow.
Rockmelon (also Canteloupe) 29 May, Garvin Johny (USA - Zone 13b climate)
My Rock melon leaves are turning yellow near the edges and the buds at the end of the tendrils are also the same. Some of the young leaves I suspect are being eaten by something. I would love a solution.
Rockmelon (also Canteloupe) 01 Jun, elaine (USA - Zone 10a climate)
not sure what is causing the yellowing - could be a number of things - too much water, or not enough nitrogen in the soil. You could try side dressing with composted manure. To stop the bugs spray with neem. 1 teaspoon neem oil in 1 quart of water with a dash of soap (washing up liquid works fine) and spray early evening. Also sprinkle diatomaceous earth over and around the plants. use the neem and DE on alternate days till you notice the leaves are not being eaten. happy harvesting!

Beans - dwarf (also French beans, Bush beans) 13 Apr, George Turner (USA - Zone 5a climate)
I am interested in planting dwarf bush beans in aquaponic beds in a green house. They need to be self pollinating and prunable to maximize production in as small an area as possible.

Asparagus 23 Feb, dave gasche (USA - Zone 5b climate)
betty, I THINK THIS IS A COMMON VARIETY. IT IS COMMONLY SOLD IN WICHITA KS AT WAL-MART,K MART HOME DEPOT LOWES. THEY HAVE BOTH SEED AND CROWNS--I THINK THE CROWNS COST ABOUT $4 FOR A BAG OF 8. SEEDS ARE MUCH CHEAPER BUT WILL REQUIRE AN EXTRA YEAR.

You can just buy organic potatoes at the grocery store. I've done that many times with good results.
Garlic 17 Jan, Becky (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I live in Ponte Vedra (about 15 miles south of Jacksonville Beach). I grew a little bit of garlic last year in our raised garden bed. It didn't seem to have a lot of flavor. I see that you don't recommend garlic for zone 9B. Why is that?

Tomatillo 11 Jan, Rory Derrick (USA - Zone 10b climate)
Hi there, from what you are explaining there it sounds like the fruit that they called tomatillo, it is a relative to the tomatoes, they are used in the making of the green Mexican style salsa type of topping sauce.
