I'm trying to find out if there are laws against growing vegetables in one's front yard. I live in Indiana and no one I've talked to seems to know for sure.
To my knowledge, there are no legal restrictions on front yard gardens. Just make sure that you maintain it. To be certain, you could check with your local county extension office for help or other resources regarding this.
Several years now when I plant a veggie garden my vegetables don't seem to grow all the way. The plants get big flowers and the veggies start, but don't always ripen. I've planted in the ground and this year in pots, maybe early, but seem to be getting the same results. Any ideas?
Sounds like you have to much nitrogen, which will cause the plants to produce lots of leaves and little fruit. One way to combat this is plant heavy feeders as a winter crop, ie cabbage, broccoli, spinach. Mulch over the site in the winter and plant sweet corn in that area in the spring (another very heavy feeder). Also check with your local extension office (found under gov't in your phone book) get a soil test kit. Your state lab will do the test for a nominal fee and it will help you make adjustment to the amendments you need in your soil.
The is one last trick you can try that works with flower beds that have this problem. Take a clean, sterile shovel and and push is down in several areas around the plant, this usually shocks the plant into producing fruit.

How do you renew an almost dead vegetable plant?
depends on what vegetable.....if it is in the squash family, cucumber, etc., if your plant is dying it probably is due to a root eating insect....normally once this begins you need to just destroy that plant
I'm doing a veg plot. I've dug the patch over and noticed that there are no worms. Will that matter?
If you make sure that the soil has plenty of organic material (like compost), the worms will find their way there. However, you can speed things along by buying some worms at a bait shop and dropping them into your garden.
niki,want worms add maure, RABBIT MANUR AND A GOOD SOIL PH,should bring lots of worms,but compost with rabbit manure food scraps leaves grass clippings, does the job best of all,
