Hi everyone. New to the gardening group. Hope to find and share some cool gardening ideas. I live out in the country in NW Ohio just east of Toledo. DH and I have been gardening many years and always have a decent sized veggie and herb garden. We also can and freeze what we can as the season progresses. Glad to join the group!

I'm new here.  I love to garden and have grown up around gardens and the gardening business.  I'm by far NOT an expert. And I differ often from my dad's opinion of chemicals to treat everything lol!


I love cooking/baking especially from scratch.  I love to read, sew, upcycle things, crochet when I can figure things out (long story), and watch really old movies.

I feel the same way about chemicals and it's a fight with DH and Dad to keep them from using them on my garden.

I'm new here as well. I love to garden, and feel it is a great way to ensure freshness for family. I have black raspberries  growing, wild cucumbers, and then in my garden this year I have eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, beans, peas, sugar snap peas, corn, carrots, dill, chives, green onions, and pumpkins. Some in ground, some in boxes. I don't have a lot of land, but I am working on making it work. I don't use any chemicals on them, and looking for other natural ways to add nutrients to them. Like what I have seen around here so far.

I only do container gardening. I am growing a lot of everything.I use epsom salt and compost for nutrients as well as beer and fish oil.  Tums gives your tomatoes calcium, so do egg shells. interplanting or companion planting is a great way to give nutrients and control insects.  welcome to the group.

Thank you for the information! We just started looking at making a composter so that we could have that to use. But good news about the other things.
