In segment four Joey and Holly answer garden questions
1. If I put down weed cloth on one side of my patch, do you think it would keep them from spreading THAT way? I don't mind if they spread in the other direction
A: Some weeds will die off when covered like grasses. Other weeds like theses that have runners and creeping Charlie are likely to just grow under the grow cloth until they find light to pop up. do Yes and no.
2. Q: I have been thinking about expanding my small gardening at home to bigger gardening. I'm not sure if I should stay with fabric or invest into some of the birdie steel containers I've started to see on youtube. I also have to look into fencing for deer rabbits and all. Any thoughts or ideas? I lived in Superior WI and have moved to Duluth, MN which is just a stone throw away but cold and snowy winters I don't want to be replacing boards on a raised bed all the time.
A:The birdie steel containers look nice and most are high-sided. They can be an investment to buy and fill. We have not used them but have heard good things about them. We have created raised beds out of 2x10 treated lumber and we use many grow bags from they offer a 15% discount with code Radio21 till the end of the year. We have been using and leaving the grow bags outside for over 7 years now with little to no wear on them.
For Deer and rabbits I would look into Deer and Rabbit that Deer Defeat works well. Radio save 10%
3. Q Do you continue to hill your potatoes beyond initial planting? If so, how much? If not, how high should the hill be?
A:The reason for hilling potatoes is to prevent developing tubers from being exposed to sun changing them to green and making them toxic.
How much: enough to make sure you do not see potatoes showing through the soil how high? depending on how deep the potatoes are you have hilled them a lot then you will not have to do it any more or very little.
The key to keep them covered by a few inches.
4. Q:Do you have to wait until the scapes curl right around before picking them? What is the best way to cook them?"
A: You don't have to wait for them to cure you can cut them at anytime. We take and cut them add them to a salad. Or take the whole scape and pan fry it with butter till tinder
