Kale and Lettuce like a pH around neutral or slightly acidic.  6-7.5

What pH do cruciferous veggies and lettuce need?
Comment by Randall Smith on December 28, 2014 at 7:36am

Amy, both kale and lettuce thrive in my garden. It's spinach I have trouble with. Your problems could be in the soil pH, although leafy veggies are pretty tolerant. Let's face it, some vegetables are just stubborn. I can't grow melons, either.

And in Canada, Spud.

Lots of things I don't know Diddly Squat about either.  I think that was a phrase used a lot in California when I lived there.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 27, 2014 at 10:04am

Not me Amy, but I'll put lettuce on the list to try next year.  My mouth is watering thinking of BLTs.

Comment by Amy on December 27, 2014 at 9:53am
Have any of yall successfully grown kale or lettuce? I can get then to sprout, but they never get very large. Do you guys have any advice on that?
Comment by Barbara Livingston on December 27, 2014 at 9:29am

Thanks Joan.  Inspiring film.  I will begin to my plant trees in a few more days.

I met a gentleman at one of my local meetings and we talked about gardening. Thursday he brought me a well worn baggie full of seeds with no label. He said they were from 'his country'. I think somewhere in Asia. He wouldn't tell me what they were just that it was edible, said it was a surprise. I guess I'll be introducing a "non-native" to my garden. Will be fun to see IF they grow and if they do, what they are.  

I believe most of the gardeners on this site know a tad more than "diddly" ... plant on!

Daniel speaks for me, too, when he says "I don't know diddly squat" (a midwestern phrase?). That's why I stay out of the permaculture, hugalkultur, Texas soil, etc., discussions. Is ignorance bliss?

1491 was a very good book, on par with A World Without Us (Weinstein).

I Googled Permaculture, Amazon Rain Forest, renewal. Here is one site, Permaculture: Pioneering Amazon Rainforest Regeneration. I found the video at
