It really is amazing how many answers are in the book!

Post  elliephant on 4/7/2011, 7:43 pm

Middlemama mentioned something about the charts that show germination times at various temperatures. Suddenly a :idea: went on and I thought I might know why my beans are coming up at miserable rates. So I picked up my warped (left outside one of those rare times it rained) copy of All New Square Foot Gardening. The next chart after the one she mentioned is Percentage of Germination. Taking a look at Beans I see 97 percent germination at 77 degrees. That drops off a cliff to 47 percent at 86 degrees and 39 percent at 95 degrees.

LOL Yup that would be what I'm seeing in my garden. Going to try pre-sprouting them on paper towels and see if that helps.

I've read the book cover to cover multiple times and am still finding "new" stuff to look up when problems hit. It may seem like an easy read at first glance, but there's really a lot in there!

I was going to write the same thing about the book... I've read it cover to cover 3 or 4 times and yet when I have a question about something, if I take a look... the answer is right there! It really is a very well done book.

I had some questions about growing potatoes, and sure enough when I looked the answers were right there!
