Weekly Garden Tip

If it’s your first time soil blocking, leave a few extra weeks for experimentation. Soil blocking can be a bit tricky to get just right when you’re first starting out. Leaving yourself extra time will help you avoid falling behind your planting schedule.

Dear Arti:

Question: I’m dealing with neighbors using poisons near my edible garden. – K.P.

Answer: Hi, K.P.,

This can be one of the most challenging obstacles in gardening. If your neighbors are spraying, the first thing you want to do is reach out to your neighbors.

You want to know what exact chemicals they are spraying and what their schedule is like. Let them know your goals of organic clean gardening and why it’s important to you.
Be sure to approach the situation in a manner that isn’t trying to control your neighbors choices. Your goal is to find out information here.

Equally important is to find out why they’re spraying. What are their goals, and why is it important to them? Once you have more information, you can explore what might be the best way to proceed.

Maybe they just can’t stand the look of dandelions in their yard. If you offered to pull them for your neighbor on a schedule, they might agree to stop spraying. Or maybe they’re spraying a microorganism biocide that’s actually safe. Or maybe it is a chemical, but you research an alternative for them to try and offer to pay for the first round.

It’s not always easy, but the most important thing here is to build good relationships with your neighbors. If you don’t, you’ll never know if you could have had a relationship in the future that helped your neighbor understand the dangers that could help protect you AND them!
