Question: I have a person who contacted me about putting in a garden. She wants to rent a spot maybe 40' x 100' or less. I would provide water and the dirt. They would handle prep, planting, weeding & harvest.

Any idea of a fair price for the ground & water for a season. Any downside?

Thanks.

Don't know. That would add a whole different scenario.

:rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: not sure what it be worth............. 50-100 bucks......sharing some of the produce??????? it depends on if you have a well or city water????

i dont see a downside.........less to mow????? especially if you got the space.

just put in my last seed order today from Twilley Seeds. They have smaller seed packets for good prices. Would rather order new seeds every year if possible. I don't want a bulging packet where they don't get planted for 3-4 years. Also the same from Pinetree seeds.

Well I should rephrase. I still will be getting some trial seed from NDSU's extension service.

If anyone is interested, They are always looking for more testers. Most are from ND. But there are 29 testers from MInn. Also from Pennsylvania, Colorado, Sask. and Manitoba.

My brother starts his tomatoes from seed. I just don't have the space to do it. :confused: and he gets a certain type of seeds of course through Amazon. :pouty:

so, those that garden, what do you guys do in the form of fertilizer??? back in the day i'd get either cow manure or turkey manure. the cow manure had wayyyy to many weeds and the turkey manure was to the point it was a whole lot of other things then manure. so i quit using that.

so lately i've been alternating 10-10-10 or this Milorganite. i also throw all my potato peelings, banana peelings coffee grounds.....about anything biodegradable  in there also. i also every fall throw a good amount of maple leaves and mulch them up.

i feel the need to do something different..........so i never ever thought i'd actually go buy like composted manure, but thinking i'm going that route this year............any suggestions?? i want to try something different.

sure DOTCH, you can mail me some!!! :pouty: :doofus: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: but i do have a pretty good sized garden!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

I use bags of Composted Manure all the time. But not in my big garden. Cost to much. I use it in flower beds, fruit beds and my elevated garden in my yard. Other wise I use 10/10/10 or 12/12/12. spread over the garden and then again to side dress corn, tomatoes, onions peppers at the right time.

I also till in 4-6 inches of leaves every fall. Plus all my grass clippings from the summer and used for mulch.

The only thing different from above are my Blueberry plants. They get Miracle Grow for acid loving plants.

Sorry glenn, mikey told me to post that!  :rotflmao:

Seriously, I do load up numerous pails, bags, boxes, trailers and pickups full of sheep poo over the course of a year. I'll even bring a spreader full if it isn't too far away especially if the lady is hot!  :hubba: I've got everything from aged and/or composted pack to the non-composted fresh pack that's pretty lively. I won't sell or give that to people for the present year's garden however. Chances of exposure to listeria are increased, one of the reasons they frown on it if growing canning crops like peas or string beans.  Might be OK if you're establishing a garden area one year, working it in and gardening it the next. Otherwise the fresh pack belongs on ground to be planted into corn and soybeans.

Seems to be all about the same.....I buy it at Menards, Home Depot, or Lowes. Whichever is cheaper.

the other day i wandered threw the garden center at menards, i did see some composted manure....figured it was to early to pick it up.  and i really didnt pay much attention to what back end it came out of! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: that area wasnt stocked all that well yet either.

they seem to be doing the continiuous 11% off thing again, i'll wait till i got a longer menards list to pick up 2-3 bags!!!!!! :happy1:

Planted a couple 10'+ rows of radishes tonite before we did chores. The small garden has some of the most bizarre soil I deal with. It's a combo of some black dirt the contractor used when installing the septic system (garden is over the top & around the tank), numerous skidsteer bucket loads of sheep chit, ashes, and the annual dumping of Mrs. Cheviot's planters and pots, containing leftover Osmocote fertilizer, perlite, peat moss and lord knows what else. It dries off fast on top but retains the moisture well throughout the growing season. I was shocked when I got the soil test back last fall. Likely due to the ashes, that pH at 7.6 is in Ken W's territory!  :scratch: Plenty of soil fertility otherwise and the pH being a little on the higher side doesn't seem to matter regardless of what we plant. Everything does fairly well.

Let it rain!  :happy1:
