I wanted a raised garden bed in the backyard but wasn’t looking to spend a lot of money to build one. The lumber to build deep garden beds can cost quite a bit to build from scratch, but a friend had some old pallets that she was getting rid of and I knew I could upcycle them into a garden bed.
I read online that it is, as long as it IS onion growing and not garlic. The article said they'll smell like onions if that's what they are. It didn't mention any difference in appearance, however. I just pulled these from my yard and they do smell like onions. But I don't want to eat them if they'll harm me, so I thought I'd ask to be sure. When I first brought them inside, two of my cats went nuts over them since I didn't know how the plant would affect them, I put them on the deck for now. Then I read online that they're VERY toxic to cats -- any part of the plant is. It said most cats don't want to eat them but these two did. But good mom wouldn't let them have any. :-)
I have never grown this squash. I am not sure when to pick it. From what I have gleaned on the internet this may be right. It said the curly tentacle would have withered and the stem would be turning hard. Also the skin would be too tough to stick your nail through it. I did not want to try that one. What do you think yes or a bit longer? I have a lot out there but a few more I could pick.
plants have some sun during the day-- if I plant more should they be in a sunny location ? Love strawberry rhubarb pie but I don't get a heavy harvest.
I know that when placing sweet potatoes in water for growing vines, one end of the potato should be placed in water. Is it possible to cut the potato in half to make two ends to place in water as per directions? It would help save as the plant vines at the garden center are $3.33 each-rather costly when one needs a large quantity for a spot. Thanks.
