Master Gardeners

Peas are my favourite winter crop. Partly because I have children and I loved showing them that peas actually come from pods. I just wanted to share this because I just hardvested some this morning and it made smile thinking back. Now another kind of story.

Ancient Egyptians used gardens for the shade they provide. Egyptians associated bushes and gardens with gods as they believed that their deities were happiest in a garden (probably because that’s where they themselves where most happy). Gardens in ancient Egypt were typically surrounded by walls with trees planted in rows. Among the most popular species planted, were date palms, sycamores, nut trees and willows. These gardens were an important status symbol. Egyptians also competed to grow the best vineyards to show they could afford it. All kinds of flowers were also popular in ancient Egypt. This also had pests in their garden, just like us. And one of those pests was the Asian beetle, that has now, 2000 years later, turned up in the Midwest, costing millions of dollars to farmers and gardeners. Early detection is vital in combatting the Asian beetle. You should look for indicators of infestation and report them to your county.

If you’re really serious about gardening you should examine your garden soil every now and then. You can get home testing equipment, or better, ship a sample to an expert. For a reasonable price you get a complete breakdown of pH and nutrient levels, as well as suggestions on how to improve (be sure to tell them if you are going all natural). That way you can tailor your gardening program to the needs of your plants and get the best results. Typically, it’s best to check during fall, and so you can apply any fertilizers and the likes right before winter.growing gardens indoors
