    Hi, for some reason I’m no longer receiving emails. Did you unfriend me? :)

    • No Betty – we would never do that…Do you get our posts via Facebook posts or email? Unfortunately Facebook does not always send everyone that “liked” us all of our posts – but you should get our emails if you signed up via the website. To be sure – you can sign up on the front page of our site where it says “follow us” via email. Just put in your email and you should receive a confirmation.

      Thanks so much – Jim and Mary

    Ah yes… I hear that recommendation of tilling it! :) I’ll be doing some of that today! If you are going to be on TV today…what channel and what time??

    • lol…nothing wrong with that :) The TV appearance will not be until May 19th on ABC – which is good bc we still have plenty of time to get things in shape from this awful winter! :)

    I planted winter rye in my garden and now I am trying to turn it into my soil; however, it does not turn into the soil very easy. It’s roots are tough and do not cut into the soil very well. What did I do wrong. Also, is this grass going to start growing again and fill up my garden. If I cannot get a good answer I don’t think I will be doing this again. Please respond so I will know what I did wrong. I read your articles all the time. Shirley Hall

    • Shirley – You will not have to worry about it coming back at all – once it is turned it will die off and add all of those nutrients to the soil. The roots are actually what will really help your garden – giving it structure and helping to really improve the overall tilth of the garden. One thing that can help to turn it easier is to first mow it down – keeping the clippings in the garden to add nitrogen. Did you sow just your rows or the whole garden? Turning rows are a lot easier than the whole garden area – and sometimes those that do a whole garden will use a tiller one time to incorporate it – although if you just have 18″ rows – its not too bad. It sounds like you really have a great cover crop – and the roots and growth are exactly what you want.

    I believe i was talking to some one at your business that gave me a phone number of possibly Amish farm(s) that we could purchase seeds or starter tomato plants specifically Ox heart ad Sam marzano romas I’d like to get in touch with them to see if that is still possible Thank you for reading and the info

    Thanks Don

  5. Stumbled upon your site and was excited to find fellow Buckeyes! Not sure what part of OH you live in, our family is in SW. Anyway, in our part of the state it was lovely today – 70 degrees lovely!! However, my youngest and I are sick. Since I couldn’t be out enjoying the sunshine, thought I’d search the internet to figure out how to garden this year. We finally bought a 12.5 acre farm and are looking forward to growing our own food too! I have no idea what I’m doing, but am looking forward to figuring it out! Enjoyed your article on planting potatoes, especially what to plant them with. This info will come in handy as I recently bought seed potatoes to try. I’m glad I found your site, will bookmark it, and sign up for your newsletters. I pray you have a wonderful growing season and harvest this year!
