Have you ever tried going the organic route? I'm pretty pest-free and the only chemicals I use are Japanese beetle traps.

My dad isn't very gungho as far as organic and such... he uses a lot of chemicals on the crops for the farm, and using them with gardening is just natural. Plus beyond selling, growing organic doesn't help just for the small amount of food plants we grow.

I think I'm gonna have to break down and get some heavy duty fertilizer next year, though. There were showcase flower gardens here about 10 years ago and that's probably the last time someone fed the ground. All I did this year was buy a bunch of nightcrawlers and set them free!

Gardening is time consuming but it helps when your stocked up for the winter in canned foods ect.

You think your hands burn when you peel tomatoes?! You should try peeling New Mexico Chile!

I grew up with a garden. Corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, pees, jalapenos, squash, and many other veggies. I hated it. I was always irrigating, hoeing, picking, or selling the veggies. I liked school better because it was "less" work. Now that I am older I am thinking of planting my own small veggie garden. I might even build a small greenhouse. Funny how things change.
