How does that work when you’re top dressing with fertilizer throughout the growing season?
It may not be the best arraignment for gardening, but low maintenance is a requirement for us.
If that was ginseng you’d get major bucks for it in Asia for the treatment of male, uh ... issues, no kidding.
Did I say Carrot??? I ment ginseng... Really
They have all sorts of attributes for different appearance, different color, different continent of origin. If that was wild native Appalachian ginseng, looking like a substantial male, errr, “part” as it does, several hundred dollars a pound is not out of the question. It does have to grow that way naturally, though, no cute tricks to induce a certain growth pattern. They can tell.

No drought here, NC is on track for a record corn crop, and a lot of tobacco farmers planted corn this year. Tomatoes are still acting sort of strange, but not as bad as last year with the legginess.
Every time I see those grapes in your hand I am reminded of Captain Queeg...
Gorgeous. My mom dotes on her antique “pineys” (peonies), and they were showy this year, but nothing like that.
We need to try Peonies again as I like their foliage as much as their blossoms. My wife grows lots and lots of annuals from seed and transplants them into beds in the garden and 40 or 50 pots on the deck.
Yeah, put the muscadines taste better than steel ...
Depending on who's feet stomps on them in the tub?
My onions did piss poor this year. When I popped them up they weren’t much larger than they were as sets! Can I replant these small onions for a fall harvest? Thanks!
You have nothing to loose unless you were growing them for cocktail onions. They may not mature until next year but a lot of folks plant in the fall...
When life hands me cocktail onions I’ll just make cocktails lol! Thanks for the input!
We just purchased several fruit trees for a bargain. However, they seem rather leggy and misshapped. Can I prune them to get low branches on the trees? Call me an "urban gardener.
