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...

Inside Garden #4: Christmas 2013

12-22-2013 09:57 AM by nitepagan | 2 comments »

I got some pictures to show. I have 5 peppers growing on my 2 New Ace (F1) Pepper plants, with a possible 6th pepper starting. Pepper plants are self pollinating, but require cool nighttime temperatures. I have reduced the heat in the grow room and added a room size humidifier, this has been enough to get some peppers growing. Until I got the new light fixture there was a bit of over crowding, so some stuff has become more leggy than should have happened. The lights are enough to k...

In this series of blog entires I attempt to share a bit of the fun of cooking with y’all. Let me start with a Texan barbecue.Granted, what we are doing might is quite different from the typical Texan BBQ (as described here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbecue_in_Texas), but I must admit it tastes at least as good. And as y’all mig...

Even though it is September, our garden is still generously providing tomatoes, peppers and onions, so I decided to try to make salsa using the lacto-fermentation method recipe described by Sally Fallon in her book Nourishing Traditions. I had enough produce, so I doubled the recipe. Salsa (makes one quart jar):4 medium tomatoes, peeled and diced 2 small onions, finely choppedĀ¾ cup chopped hot peppers6-8 cloves of minced garlic Bunch of chopped cilantro 1 teaspoons dried oregano3 to 4 tab...

Garden Experiments #1: Experiment In No Dig Gardening

03-18-2009 07:56 PM by BadBob | 6 comments »

I formed a square with landscape timbers I had on hand. Mulched right over the grass and set the plants. They have had little care except to water them and feed with fish emulsion fertilizer a few times. More mulch was added where grass started to come through. The mulch is what ever I had on hand. Mostly this is tree waste and grass clippings. The soil is hard packed sand. The date on the photos is wrong. The correct date is 20070811
