Rhubarb 14 May, Ruth (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Can I buy a totally red fleshed variety of rhubarb in Australia, if so what is the name please! Thank you for a informative website!
Carrot 13 May, Celeste Archer (Canada - Zone 8a Mild Temperate climate)
AS an FYI : in addition to rock free loose sandy soil (and a balance of nutrition) Carrots require, in order of importance: copper (pennies work - just toss some good old copper pennies around the carrots - Canadian and American pennies have copper... I'm not sure about other countries), boron (borax like given to sunflowers - borax boost ==> early-morning watering of 4 litres (1 gal.) of water mixed with 2.5 mL (1⁄2 tsp.) of borax.), magnesium, calcium (eggs shells) and manganese. I find that I generally get enough Magnesium and manganese from my general compost. Careful not to overdue the coffee grinds, in excess they can be toxic.
Collards (also Collard greens, Borekale) 13 May, John (USA - Zone 9a climate)
Can I plant collard greens all year long
Yacon (also Sunroot) 13 May, Stephen (Australia - temperate climate)
Would the region around Bingara NSW be suitable for Yacon production. It is a little dry, cool climate unimproved soils.

Chives (also Garden chives) 11 May, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Do you live in the tropics or the mountains. Is it summer or winter. Do you know the difference between dry and over watered. Why not just give it a go and work it out.
Tomato 08 May, Carla Stacy (USA - Zone 7b climate)
I’m growing tomatoes in a 5 gallon bucket. I have flowers but no fruit. Planted April 19th. Last year same thing lots of flowers but no fruit. What am I doing wrong?
Tomato 12 May, Texas Grown (USA - Zone 10a climate)
Maybe you don't have enough pollenators. Have flowers around. Make sure you're not spraying something that kills or repels pollinators.
Tomato 11 May, (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Try a bit of pot ash or potassium.

Ginger 29 Apr, Lungile Sibiya (South Africa - Humid sub-tropical climate)
I started trying to plant a few ginger rhizomes during COVID 19 total lockdown in my backyard garden and they proved to be a good crop although I didn't add any fertilizer. A farmer saw it and is interested in growing it for commercial purposes since the market is increasing especially during and after COVID 19. Unfortunately, I don't have the actual costing for at least 1 hectare ginger crop. Kindly assist me with the Enterprise Budgets for 1 hectare Ginger crop if you have. Your assistance will be highly appreciated. Kindest Regards, Lungile Sibiya Production Scientist Department of Agriculture and Rural Development KwaZulu-Natal Province

Sweet corn (also corn,maize) 26 Apr, Natalia (USA - Zone 5b climate)
I don't have much space... has anyone had success with growing corn in a large raised bed? Thanks!
Sweet corn (also corn,maize) 02 May, Brett (Australia - arid climate)
Corn takes a fair bit of water so keep the drink up to them. They do have a pretty good sized root system so it would depend on the depth of the raised bed. I've grown them OK in 600mm deep beds.
Collards (also Collard greens, Borekale) 24 Apr, Bukkoe (USA - Zone 7a climate)

Collards (also Collard greens, Borekale) 24 Apr, (USA - Zone 7a climate)

Cardoon 18 Apr, Kim (Canada - Zone 7a Mild Temperate climate)
