How to Build a "Greener" Backyard Garden

15 July 2009 (scientificamerican.com)

Most commercial farms concentrate on growing a few select crops to supply a wide variety of customers, but


at home is a different story entirely. Most backyard food gardeners are looking to augment their family’s diet with a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs throughout the growing season. For those of us who face time and space constraints in our gardening endeavors, combining crops within the same planting areas makes a lot of sense. Such techniques are particularly well-suited to

organic gardens

where chemical fertilizers and pesticides aren’t used to artificially boost crop productivity.

'The most satisfying thing I have ever done'

28th April 2009 (guardian.co.uk)

Why do people become obsessed with growing vegetables? It's not exactly high-octane. It won't make you rich or boost your social status. But millions who can afford to buy their food devote every free moment to the kind of labour our ancestors were glad to abandon. I think it is because the results are tangible. In much of the rest of our lives, we work our butts off without discovering whether it makes any difference. But in this case you can see and taste what you've done. You can admire the work of your own hands, and this is the greatest satisfaction that any task can give you.

Threat over mental health garden

28th April 2009 (bbc.co.uk)

A gardening project on the outskirts of Aberdeen which employs people with mental health problems is facing the threat of closure, it has emerged. Solstice directors said Aberdeen City Council's refusal to formally agree to use the nurseries for work placements has jeopardised the project's future. Aberdeenshire Council has already agreed to subsidise placements. But the project has said it can no longer afford to take referrals from the city council free of charge.

Plan Bee: As Honeybees Die Out, Will Other Species Take Their Place?

1 April 2009 (sciam.com)

Honeybees have been dying in record numbers in the U.S. for at least the past two years. Experts attribute the mass deaths to a catchall condition known as colony collapse disorder (CCD), although both a cure and the culprit remain elusive. Despite as much as a 35 percent loss of bees per year, we remain almost entirely dependent on what until recently was a self-renewing annual population of billions of honeybees to pollinate over 130 kinds of fruit and nut crops.

Easy Organic Lawn Care

17 March 2009 (thegreenguide.com)

How to take care of your lawn which not only benefits you but also the environment around you. When my husband and I exchanged two decades of urban existence for suburban life, I didn't know a rhododendron from a Rototiller. We did know that we wanted to forgo the "weed 'n' feed" approach to lawn care. To our pleasant surprise, organic yard care is simple once you go through the steps of disconnecting your lawn from its chemical life-support system.

How to Protect Garden and Landscape When Texas Stays Cold

Winter means colder weather for all of Texas even including the Gulf Coast. However, except for the Panhandle and High Plains areas, the duration of below freezing temperatures is usually measured in hours rather than days. Occasionally though an arctic cold from grabs the State and hangs around for days.

When plants with high water content in their leaves are subjected to sustained temperatures below 32 degrees, water in and around the cells freezes and forms ice crystals. The sharp crystals cause ruptures in the cells' membranes leading to death. Initially after freeze damage, the leaves are soft and appear mushy. Later the leaves turn black and the affected area dies.
