Crowdsourcing: Ideas Edition

So for the past few months I’ve been writing up zany and wacky ways to feed yourself. I’ve been writing about the benefits of different plants. I’ve been basically free-form plant blogging.

Thinking about it this week, though, I’ve been wondering what you guys want to hear about.

What plant/gardening/herb related questions do you have?

Is there a specific plant or gardening technique you want to get a little insight on?

The best way to grow potatoes above ground perhaps? How to overwinter root veggies with nothing but garbage cans and sand?

I want to hear from YOU GUYS this week. My noble readers, patient and kind enough to slog through how-tos on how to make bread from cattails and pancakes fromĀ acorns. This week I’m turning the tables.

I don’t know if this is too pedestrian, but I would love some basic landscaping advice. I moved into my current home a few years ago, and this is the first home for which I have cared about “curb appeal”. But I have killed more plant than I have kept alive in my meager flower beds, my lawn is rampant with weeds, and I continually feel like I’m engaged in WWIII with all the pests, diseases, fungi that invade everything. I really have no idea what I’m doing right or wrong. I live in Coastal Georgia, and much of the advice and articles I read online seem targeted more for regions that actually experience winter. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated!!

yes- I definitely want some pseudo-root cellaring knowledge.

Also, what to do about aphids inside (at least that’s what I think they are). I lost a whole indoor windowbox of herbs to tiny white-ish bugs killing my tasty plants! Where do they come from in the middle of winter? How can I stop them? I’m afraid they will go after my non-edible (to me) plants next.
