Emphasizes aspects of soils, growth, role of the sun, insect pests and the various parts of plants used for food–leaves, stems, buds and roots.” NEW VERSION with improved video & sound: Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). Gardening is the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture. In gardens, ornamental plants are often grown for their flowers, foliage, or overall appearance; useful plants, such as root vegetables, leaf vegetables, fruits, and herbs, are grown for consumption, for use as dyes, or for medicinal or cosmetic use. A gardener is someone who practices gardening, either professionally or as a hobby. Gardening ranges in scale from fruit orchards, to long boulevard plantings with one or more different types of shrubs, trees and herbaceous plants, to residential yards including lawns and foundation plantings, to plants in large or small containers grown inside or outside. Gardening may be very specialized, with only one type of plant grown, or involve a large number of different plants in mixed plantings.

    ja da, I am having trouble this week answering comments, which makes me sad. I enjoyed talking to you. You asked how I would plant potatoes. I may try the traditional way of creating the trench, and loosen the soil between rows, to facilitate the hilling up of soil over the season. I may not have the strength to do this, but I have the will to push myself till I "hit the wall." I should get some good seed potatoes and let them sit out in the light in flats to grow green shoots a short while before planting. Good luck with your garden. If you have ideas, let me know.
