Garden Journey 2012 #7: Meet the Tomatoes

561 days ago by justjoel | 9 comments »

Way too many things getting in the way of quality time to post here this year, but thought I’d sneak in a tomato posting (pasting?). Went all organic this year, only used rich mulch and simple mulch tea to feed. Even used a banana/coffee/bonemeal tea to combat some end-rot that started early on just one variety – haven’t seen it on the later tomatoes. But I’ve heard there’s not much you can do, you have to start correctly to avoid the rot (which I though I had...

Garden Journey 2012 #6: June & July

630 days ago by justjoel | 9 comments »

And I thought I was busy last year… This year, I felt more prepared for the garden, made better plans, purchased and started seeds earlier and with more care and thought. I even prepared the ground sooner and with more forethought, or so I thought. But I’m still behind, to my thinking, and it’s not because I’m feeding my whimsy like I did last year. I’m just busier. End of story. Okay, not The End of the story. One thing I do know is I’m busier learning more this year than last – ma...

Garden Journey 2012 #5: May

692 days ago by justjoel | 3 comments »

The garden is in! Well, mostly. STRUCTUREBecause my space is far too limited for the amount of what I wish to plant, especially considering the variety of things I want, I have to plan carefully. And plan. And plan again. So, this means structure and structures – mostly trellises (for the cucs, beans, & tomatoes) and the vertical strawberry boxes. So the lowly ground-dwellers must fit in around these structures while taking into consideration the path, amount, and timing of the ...

Tomato Trellis Idea

702 days ago by Tom | 5 comments »

Like most people I have tried a number of things and been impressed with ideas from other gardeners. These were used last year and held up great. They are not too difficult or expensive to make. They also are easily moved and I think will last for years. Materials:1-Wire Concrete reinforcing panel2-u-channel green fence posts2- pre-cut balusters4- bolts/nuts/washers5-wire staples Step 1:Using two bolts for each post, drill holes in baluster to align with existing holes in gre...

Garden Journey 2012 #4: Late April

723 days ago by justjoel | 9 comments »

Doesn’t seem like I have much to report on since early April, yet my back is tired for a second Sunday in a row. Hmm…? Looks like the pear tree is having a good spring so far, better than last year’s. The starts are all doing well, though different varieties of some of the same species were slower germinators than others, and this caused me some minor worry until the past few days – namely with some tomatoes and peppers. But everyone is showing their tiny little faces now. Seems I h...

Garden Journey 2012 #3: Early April

744 days ago by justjoel | 8 comments »

So, yes, as I said, the seeds. I have starts going in several places now, and they’re starting to peak out. Have 4 kinds of tomatoes, 7 kinds of peppers, and the artichokes here. Here I have Shasta Daisies, Purple Echinacea, Chinese Lanterns, Lavender, Rosemary, and I added a shelf to finish drying the gourds (which I decidedly did not pay enough attention to over the winter, as evidenced by the moldy spots on the bottom of one of the big ones – but they’re salvag...
