Martha recently received two interesting questions about gardening from viewers, and she answered them on "The Martha Stewart Show."

Garden Fertilizer

Q: I've heard you're supposed to fertilize your vegetable garden. Do you fertilize yours? If so, can you tell me what you use and how often?

A: Martha's vegetables are heavy feeders, so she gives them additional nutrients in several ways. Throughout the growing season, she adds compost and mulch to her soil.

For fertilizer, she uses Miracle-Gro Organic Choice plant food. She recommends sprinkling it on every one to two months.

Another handy tool is the Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed feeding system, which attaches right to your hose. The system makes it simple to feed and water your garden simultaneously.

Raised Garden

Q: I've had a vegetable garden for many years, but as I get older, I'm finding it more difficult to bend over to plant, weed, and pick. My sons want to build a raised garden for me. Do you have any suggestions for how to make one?

A: Martha has the perfect solution: a salad table. It's tall, so you can grow salad greens without bending over, and it features a mesh bottom that's perfect for soil. Gardening expert Jon Traunfeld shared easy salad table instructions with Martha last year. Get the How-To

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
