This is the coolest gardening site EVER! On the Gardener's Supply Company website you can design your own garden beds by clicking and dragging the plants you want, where you want them. Then you can print your planting map WITH very detailed planting directions. This is just what I have been looking for! Hurray!!!:)
Pinner: soapy water can help eliminate pests. A comment: When the going gets tough I add some listerine type mouth wash and a bit of water that I soaked chewing tobacco in. With this mix I can defeat 90% - 95% of the pests I encounter, slugs, snails and rabbits hate the taste of it. It is an ingredient it the worlds greatest composting mix too.
