In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardeners questions
1.I have a parsnip plant I didn't harvest last year, and it is now going to seed. I'm considering letting it go to seed, and leaving that area of garden for parsnips. Should I do that or can they become a problem plant taking over?
A:You can let them grow and they will put seeds on. We did that.
2. How do you get the whole root without digging up your whole garden?
Q: We have found that we dig out as much as possible and keep removing that weed. By doing this it will over the course of a season or to stress the plant out to the point it will not come back.
3. Can you please explain to me what is black soil?
A: black-colored soil containing a high percentage of humus and high percentages of phosphoric acids, phosphorus, and ammonia. Chernozem is very fertile and can produce high agricultural yields
4. I've tried growing in compost only but it seems that the water doesn't flow through it very well. The compost got hard and nothing really grew well in it. Maybe it's the type of compost I used. It's the compost from the nursery that comes in a bag. Thanks!
A: what may help is mixing some potting soil in with the compost and then using a mulch to keep it from drying out as fast this can be leaves, straw, shredded paper, pin needles sand to name a few.
5. I need help coming to terms with soil testing. I have 7 raised beds and a few fruit trees. Our local extension office (Madison, WI) charges $15 for the basic tests for each sample. It's a good price but if I were to test all of my spaces, it would get expensive quickly. Are there any good bulk or DIY options that you recommend? Most of the beds were created and filled as we were able to so the soil in each of them is pretty different.
A: As far as soil testing, that is going to be your best bet. There are kit options online, but a soil lab like at local university is going to be best. You should test your soil every 3-5 years. Its well worth the cost, especially if it can help your vegetable production.
6. I see picture of can jar turned upside down why is this done and is it necessary?
