    Weeping Willow needs some oomph

    I would hit it hard with some fertilizer and see what happens. Don’t be afraid to give the trunk some extra support I have seen where a young fruit tree takes off for the first strong season it will bear more than it can support. You either have to remove fruit or support the tree.

    US state Vermont bans veg seed this true???

    That is country wide but only at Walmart all other stores that are open and normally sell seeds are selling them. I will not get in to my opinion on Walmart other than the fact that I deeply dislike them.

    What has changed in your life in the last few weeks?

    Other than being laid off temporarily life has not changed for me all that much. To be honest I am enjoying the extra time around the house to get things done. Unfortunately the last couple days the weather has been terrible and really killing my progress.

    A lot of questions about mulch

    I would be careful with the bamboo because it is so invasive. It would be terrible to see you use it as mulch and end up with it growing in the garden.

But the truth of the matter is that re used lids should only be used for immediate consumption items as you don’t want to have a re used lid fail on you 11 months aft you put...

We in recent years have gotten so spoiled with the just in time delivery system that we have gotten dependent upon it. Unfortunately it is too easy to...

    New here from Pennsylvania

    Here is the current status of the beds there will be one 2x4 added to the top to cover the plastic once the beds are filled. I honestly thought that these would have been done by now but everything is taking longer than expected. The beds are 3 feet wide by 6 feet long by 3 feet deep. I chose...
