    Hello from TX, USA

    Perhaps the wrinkled leaves are leftover signs of previous distress then. I hope so!! I’ll keep a close eye on the new one forming and see how it looks. Thanks for your help once again!!

    Hello from TX, USA

    I just wanted to pop back on here and thank you all again for the help. My orchid is still alive, and it’s working on making a new flower!! It also has a new leaf coming in, although one of the old leaves seems to be dying. Here is what it looks like now! Should I be concerned about the old...

    Hello from TX, USA

    Thank you both!! I’m so glad I came here to ask. I thought about just doing a web search, but there’s SO much info to wade through online, and it can be really difficult to separate the good advice from the bad, especially when you don’t have any firsthand experience and might not recognize...

    Hello from TX, USA

    Hi there! I’m Stephanie. I actually joined the forum quite a while back, but my life is chaos and I haven’t been on in a very long time. 😅 So I thought maybe I ought to re-introduce myself. I’m actually taking a bit of a break from gardening right now, for the most part, as we are hoping to buy...

    How to Use Shade Cloth Successfully?

I'm in north Texas, so according to the map I'm looking at, I'm in the northern bit of the subtropic zone, almost where it meets the very south edge of the temperate zone. Blackberries grow wild here and garden blackberries thrive with little to no...

    How to Use Shade Cloth Successfully?

    I was thinking of putting a shade cloth over my vegetable garden, as it’s been SO hot and sunny here (Texas), and my plants aren’t doing too well. I have a whole bed of raspberries that are trying to fruit, but the berries that develop are few and small and sad-looking. The plants look hot and...

    Problem Lemons

    Hello! I’m new here and just browsing around, but thought I’d reply here as I’m pretty sure I just read the article you’re talking about earlier today! I’m too new to put a link in, but it’s on the Self Sufficient Me website, and the article is called “Citrus Care Luvathon Time during Autumn.”...

    Hello from San Antonio, Texas

    Hello! I’m in Texas too - around Fort Worth. I think I gravitated to Mark’s channel for the same reason you did. A lot of the info I was finding was really geared for gardeners in cooler climates. Anyway, glad I found this forum, and glad I ran into another Texas gardener here already! This is...

    Greetings from Texas, USA!

    Hello! I’m Stephanie and I live in Texas. I’m an amateur gardener looking to learn as much as possible. I love trying to become more self-sufficient and have been enjoying Mark’s YouTube channel for some time. I have a few homemade raised beds and some fruit trees I’m trying not to kill, lol...

    Question Goat manure mistake?

    Did you have any trouble with weed seeds from the goat manure? My horse manure definitely carries some weed seeds. I have a few dairy goats - maybe I should use their poo instead?
