Excellent Organic Gardening Site W/Links

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

This site has great information on gardening without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides, both of which might be unavailable post-Y2K. Check out the section on urban dwellers feeding themselves from their small plots, and especially check out the picture of the proverbial 'Average American Family of Four' and what they eat in a years time - thought-provoking, to say the least.

Organic Gardening - Frugal Sustainability

P.S. Get your seeds now. If you can't get the non-hybrid, at least get some of the Burpee-type packets that are out now at all the stores. Next year at this time, you might not be able to get them for love or money...

Remember to pull weeds when they are little and fragile. The longer you delay, the more difficult their extraction will be. Some weeds have more rapid growth cycles than your plants and can easily reseed your garden plot before you harvest the main crops. Compost between plants to prevent new weed seeds from sprouting.

Thanks Why2k, but I knew that. (I didn't mean that to sound snotty) By a web address to the site, I meant an http:www. hot link. When I bookmark the hot line above it just shows the cool pages address. Oh well, no problem, I'll just rename it in my favorites. Thanks for replying to me anyway Why.

Lowe's has a variety of vegetable seed packets for 10 cents each. Our local store still had plenty last weekend.
