Grow Light Progression #3: Repoted and Harden Off

06-11-2017 03:11 PM by jwarner | 0 comments »

I’m a day late. I forgot what day it was, and finding out it was Sunday. So forgive the 1-day late post lol I repotted my Tomato plants into 4” Pots to give the roots more growing room. You can see the photo below of the repotted plants, I was kind of concerned when repotting that I didn’t damage the root system or even breaking the stems, but they appear to be strong enough to handle the transfer from the cells to the pots. They are doing better it appears, I buried t...

Grow Light Progression #2: 1 Week (More like 3 Weeks)

06-03-2017 01:34 PM by jwarner | 0 comments »

The photos provided below are photos of last weeks Seedlings under the Grow light. Unfortunately I forgot to turn off the lights so you could see what they looked like beforehand. Now before I start, I’ve had these seedlings started from seed for probably 3 weeks to 4 weeks. They were sitting in a chair close to the window, which didn’t receive much sunlight on the west window of my house. So once I received my Grow lights, they went under the lights, most of the seedlings d...

Grow Light Progression #1: Grow Light's

05-27-2017 07:01 PM by jwarner | 0 comments »

Due to not enough lighting in my house with No east window and the west window now getting enough sun to keep my plants alive when started from seed. I had to go another route. some 35w LED Grow Lights. Going to see how this goes, see if it will perk up what remaining plants I started. I got Carolina Reaper, Habanero and 1 Cayenne Pepper and a Few Beef Steak Tomatoes in my Flat. This will be a Blog Series of how well these LED 35w Grow Lights will work. This is a Photo with the La...

Well, This Blog post will be kind of short. I was having issues with the City and my other property. Getting on me bout the wood and things in the yard from the Previous house I demolished, took me a few years to get the help needed to get things cleaned up. Now that everything is cleaned up, All I got to worry about is getting 2 mounds of dirt leveled out and rolled out before next years growing season. So on a good note, Everything is coming together nicely, Yard is cleaned up, Woo...

Allotment Progress Updates #3: Summer 2016

07-23-2016 07:22 PM by Desktopgem | 0 comments »

I haven’t been here for 3 years!! Wow. Not even a blog from me. Anyway, I see we can’t upload photos directly from our computers any more. Where did MsDebbieP go? I am still here and still have my allotment. It is doing well this year and I was about to upload photos but can’t. I’m not sure about using photobucket either. How is everybody doing? I will try again to upload some photos. It says the picture is not in a supported format but it is a jpeg.

Compact Gardening: Fruit Trees

06-11-2016 03:43 PM by MsDebbieP | 2 comments »

A few years ago, I interviewed a gentleman from Dave Wilson nurseries and was fascinated with the “compact gardening” practice with fruit trees—keep them small so they fit in a smaller yard and so you can reach all the fruit without using a ladder. Well, this year (2016), I found another benefit! We have an infestation of Japanese beetles. Now, we get these every year but for the past couple of years, our neighbour put out a Japanese beetle trap and that solved our proble...

2016 #1: Spring Update

05-21-2016 05:19 PM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

It’s the long weekend in May and I’m busy puttering around in the yard. It has been a slow spring, garden-wise, for me, as I’m babysitting my granddaughter (toddler) and I’d rather focus on her than try and watch her while gardening. First off, I have to say that my fruit trees have all avoided the frost!!! I might actually have some fruit this year (if I beat the squirrels and birds to them.) Having planted a number of nut trees over the years, the squirrels and ch...
