Gardening Q&A: Try the trek less traveled to take in the agriculture – Virginian-Pilot

Posted: Saturday, October 07, 2017

When traveling, I generally shy away from our great interstate highway system . I don’t like the traffic, and I find the scenery and possibility for discovery much better on the back roads. It may take longer, but that’s no problem for me. For that reason, my six to seven fall weekend football treks to Chapel Hill, N.C., most often involve a route that minimizes my…

Gardening is an act of defiance for Ron Finley, the “gangsta gardener” – The Denver Post

Posted: Friday, October 06, 2017

After scraping away the scrubby grass along the 10-foot-wide, 150-foot-long strip, he planted everything from strawberries and kale to fig and banana…

Ageing with attitude: Gardening is good for the body and the mind – Irish Examiner

Posted: Friday, October 06, 2017

WHEN Cork-based Alison Flack was a child she had a patch in her father’s garden where she grew seeds. Although now in her late 60s the experience of watching those seedlings sprout in her unheated glasshouse still holds the original magic. “There’s something terribly satisfying in the depths of winter putting a packet of seeds into soil and watching things coming up; you’d wonder sometimes what is going to appear….

The Grow connected planter is the ultimate no-fuss gardening kit – Engadget

Posted: Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Grow wouldn’t be the first connected gardening product that claims to sell you everything you need; last year the SproutsIO microgarden promised to sell you seeds and a pot that would let you grow your own herbs and vegetables hydroponically. But that’s an indoor system, and it’s also a lot more expensive. Grow is for people who have access to some kind of outdoor space like a roof, deck or…

Fall may be here, but the gardening season hasn’t ended – Press Herald

Posted: Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Fall is my favorite season. Temperatures are cool enough to make working outdoors comfortable (OK, maybe not this past week), the foliage is lovely and our state is a lot less crowded than it is in summer. While there are chores to be completed, the only deadline is the first snowfall that doesn’t melt away. With global warming (yes, I believe it exists) that is usually mid- to late December…
