    The World History of Climate Change

    Very good information, I think we are in a changing weather pattern that may be effected by our industrial society. I don't think we are willing to shut our industries down, soo I guess we live with the changes. I think the earth is good at adapting to us.

    What to plant at first of July?

    Carrots can be planted, you just need to keep them moist to germinate. Green beans would be good. I am harvesting my garlic as well and I was really pleased with them. It was my first year planting them.

    harvest tracking

    That's great. You will find each year the cost goes down. We bought fencing and tomato cages last year and they will last for years. So the cost of supplies can be spread over the life time of your gardening. I save some of my seeds and plant the next year. A great way to save some money.

    cross pollination

    I have planted my pepper and tomatoes and cucumbers in row next to each other without any problems. I don't save seed and it has been working for me for years. I just try to rotate so I am not planting the same vegetable in the same location. From year to year.

    Grass in Raised Beds

    Once you get the grass under control mulching works. Newspaper and shaving. Keep the mulch deep. 5-6 inches and keep putting mulch as the old decomposes. Keep the strawberries thinned each year. Cut off some of the runners to keep your patch under control. good Luck, Strawberries are works... is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
