Beautiful Food #4: Peak of summer

02-12-2011 04:51 AM by daltxguy | 19 comments »

The gopher didn’t see its shadow so it’s only 6 more weeks of summer( I think…lol). Things are beginning to ripen up. Sunflowers Sorghum is mile high and the ‘broom’ is blooming after 90 days of growth Corn husks are forming: Giant cauliflower – fed me for 4 days and the grapes beginning to show some color is bittersweet – beautiful but a reminder that the seasons are changing

Around the Yard #25: The Show Overview

06-12-2009 08:12 AM by Scott Hildenbrand | 14 comments »

And here’s the rest in a much wider view. The garden along the walk is popping left and right. In a few days I figure there will be color the whole way down. So going to love breaking up this sidewalk and putting in something more flowing down through here. It’s almost like we were meant to be here.. This is what is across the road in the ditch.. Runs for a good way either direction and almost in conjunction with our property line. The dog run is still looking jam p...

Growing My Way to Freedom #44: Hopi Blue Dent Corn

01-29-2014 05:15 PM by Radicalfarmergal | 9 comments »

In 2013, I grew Hopi Blue Dent corn. I ordered one package from a small company in Maine, Pinetree Seeds. I planted the corn in the garden area at the top of sunny southern slope, in the piece of land where my sons had grown potatoes last year. At the end of the season, we had covered the ground in cardboard and a thick layer of goat hay bedding mulch. Given the thick covering we had created, I thought that starting them indoors and transplanting them outside would be a good idea. The on...

Well this will be my First Blog entry here at GardenTenders. As you all know I am a bit new to this community, I do have a Lumberjocks page I guess would be associated with the same area. I am a Scrollsawer, I cut many things out of thin wood and I do some woodworking as well. But also I’m Kinda a gardner as well. I’m not a 100% Avid Gardner, I’m borrowing a Piece of Land from a Friend that that has a garden. He’s letting me use a 15’x30’ Section...

Beautiful Food #2: Knee high by 4th of Jan

01-07-2011 05:42 AM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

2 feet of rain in September, followed by 8 weeks drought in spring with 30C+ temps ( 90F+) followed by too much rain and a flood from the same storm which is (still) dumping on the Aussies got things off to a strange start but the combination of the moisture and heat and long days has brought things right in a hurry. The corn is knee high by 4th of Jan so we must be on schedule! and there is a veritable food forest thing happening. Here you can see the corn in the forefront, the sorghu...

Preserving Foods #29: Pressure Canner - Sweet Corn

08-09-2013 12:35 PM by MsDebbieP | 3 comments »

Aug. 9/13 Yesterday, we stopped at a farmer’s market that sells “locally” grown fruits/veggies. (as local as she can find it, anyway). I picked up 4 quarts of green beans and canned them up (so much easier to buy in bulk so I can fill the pressure canner… I don’t get enough in my garden being ready at the same time) and I got 4 dozen sweet corn. We are eating 1 dozen and I canned the rest of the corn today. I husked them and Rick took the corn off the co...

Garden Thoughts of the Week

09-12-2008 01:37 PM by gardenmentor | 3 comments »

Fall is so busy, it can be hard to keep up with everything. So, it goes, right? And, heck, it really isn’t even fall yet…even if the sun is getting lower and lower on the horizon by the minute and setting earlier and earlier each evening. Still, the days are shorter and getting everything done seems harder. Following are a few things you might enjoy:- Tomato and sandwich recipes, plus thoughts on throwing out food- Controlling Leaf Miners—those suckers love to hit our fal...

Garden

04-26-2013 11:29 AM by jwarner | 2 comments »

Does anyone or has anyone already got some Land Tilled up for a Garden this year? I’m on the Look out for some helping hands to help me till up a section in the yard for a Garden. I’m in a Chair and can’t handle a Tiller to do it myself, It really Sucks cause it limits my ability to do some things like this when I need it most for the outside time. Oh well, I can still do the Planting on my own lol. Looking to get some Beans, Tomatos, maybe Corn and some peppers th...

Vegetables Update

03-18-2008 02:53 PM by Mike Smith | 2 comments »

The vegetables that we are growing in containers are doing extremely well (and growing incredibly fast—we planted them just a week ago). As we are both new to vegetables, we are continually amazed. Like I said, they are growing in peat pods in window sills, but they are quickly outgrowing these. It is still fairly cool outdoors (although warming up each day), so should I take the domes off and sit them out in the sun? Go ahead and plant them in the ground? Here is the progress of eac...
