Answers to Gardening Questions at Your Fingertips

Postby Bill Hudson » Tue Apr 02, 2013 9:06 pm

I often answer gardening questions by referring to online publications from various Land Grant Universities. There is no reason that I should keep this very valuable resource to myself. :oops: Therefore, bookmark this puppy http://www.searchedu.com/ In the 'search for' bar, type in what you are researching - for example (as I did for another post) "growing popcorn." In the 'using' bar, I used "education sites." This simple search resulted in 10 pages of ~10 references each.

Why use this site as opposed to Google of Bing? Simple, as long as you use "education sites," you are getting the results of impartial research, based upon the scientific method. You will not be seeing the grandiose claims for Grannie's Miracle Foo Foo Dust, you will be getting facts. Often you can get articles for your state about your particular question. If not, a state with similar conditions may have done the research to answer your question.

Go ahead kick the tires and see what you can find there.

Great info Bill, Thanks! This also reminds me to call my broker in the morning to sell all the stock I have in Grannie's Miracle Foo Foo Dust,Inc.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Thanks for the lead Bill. I have Penn States Commercial Vegetable Guide in my favorites. I have more faith in the Extension sites than the plethora of "I'm an Expert" links that come up on a search. Some are good, but theres a lot of chaff in the wheat. (Ragweed. too). John
