try dusting the dirt with red chili powder. It keeps the bunnies away without having to use chemicals.



Yes! I will try this! Hope it works on squirrels, too.



it does. rats, squirrels and rabbits, since the do a lot of foraging based on smell and sniffing, hate the red pepper (finely ground, not crushed).

remember to repepper after a rain.

"Lasagna Gardening for Small Spaces" by Patricia Lanza was the book we used. It's great for city plots.

When is the best time to plant pumpkins?

I think we need to put up a cage to protect the garden from deer. There aren't deer now, but there weren't people flying planes into the World Trade Center on September 10 2001 and look how that turned out.

I would also like to partition off a quarter of the garden for raising chickens (for their eggs, not to eat). Is that too small an area to grow chickens (seriously)? And where can you buy live chickens and do you need a permit or anything?


It looks as though the end of May will be a good time to plant pumpkins, Andrew. Shall we go for the one of the smaller, less viney varieties such as "Spookie", "Baby Boo" or "Jack-B-Little"?

I just got off the phone with the City Clerk's office. The lady I spoke with is going to look up the legality of raising a chicken in the city of Chicago and mail us the results of her research. Nobody I spoke with seemed to recall any city ordinance against the raising of poultry on private property.

Chad, this is a terrible idea. You have been misled by the small surface area of our garden. What you forget, my friend, is that the pumpkin grows underground, and there is dirt under the concrete as well. Just as long as the pumpkin's stalk is smaller than the width of the garden, we will be fine.

Pigs grow underground, too. Raise pigs instead of
chickens; to save space.

Whenever Andrew starts drinking this early in the day, I close my eyes and go to a happy place.

what matters 's not the thickness of the stalk, but the motion in the ocean.

i don't know about coyotes, but on my way back to the studio from a milk run to jewel around 1030pm last week i saw a fox running down the middle of belmont. he was headed straight for me but he took a right on rockwell. he was really skinny and looked hungry. i hope he doesn't eat our vegetables.

moving forward; underground pumkins.

Carrots...or Hemp?!

Who knew?

You'll need to thin out the carrots soon. You need at least
four inches between individual plants.
