View Full Version : Outdoors questions...

09-13-08, 05:12 pm
I have a garden bed in front of my window. And I have some questions about it.
I know it looks like a mess, but I was just cleaning it up (it was full of rubber mulch and weeds!). Under my window, I am going to put a little grass area for when I get my piggies. With the rest I was going to grow some veggies. My questions are:
Is gardening soil or composted manure ok for gps?
What veggies would be best to grow for piggies? I was thinking bell peppers and lettuce. What do you guys think? I live in Florida and can grow most veggies.
Thats all the questions I can think of right now.
Thanks in advance for any help anybody can give me!

Oh I just thought of another question. The picture I put above isn't big enough to see what I want to show you. http://s59.photobucket.com/albums/g295/tazbabie4/?action=edit&current=102_314301.jpg&startOption=3&special_track=fullview_edit_resize
The yellow circled things are termite bate/traps. I don't know much about them. I was wondering if they are ok.

The soil would be fine to use. Lettuce and bell peppers would be good choices. I'd also plant some carrots as they're quite easy, and maybe a couple of tomato plants. I guess it depends on your piggies favourite veggies!

Not sure what you mean exactly by the termite things? I don't really know what they are. Do the bugs fall into them? I'd think they'd be OK so as long as they don't touch the veggies.

Your veg bed looks like a good area. I'm sure your pigs will love it =)

thanks! I found out from my mom that it is a termite bait box. She said as long as the piggies don't get into it, they should be fine. I was thinking about carrots. My mom has tomatoe plants, so those are already taken care of. Thanks again for your help!
