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...
I can’t wait for late Spring to get here or even early Spring to get some of my Plants started for Summer Planting. I rescently tore down the house next to me that I bought. Now I have a BIGGER yard for myself and my Dogs to Roam around Plus a Garden Plot I can get going. I’m thnking of building 4 to 6 Beds 4×4 with Cinderblocks 2 High. This will also give me the ability to Plant some border Plants in the holes of the Blocks to prevent Pest from getting to my Plants. ...
I had been chugging along through the winter, not much was happening with the Inside Garden. The pepper plants were pale and leggy, not doing much for bearing fruit. I thought I was doing everything right or was I? Then one day I saw two of the T5 HO Fluorescent bulbs were burned out, so they needed replacing. So in my search to find some new bulbs, I came across this urban grow shop, that sold everything for growing marijuana and then some. I ask for some new bulbs and the guy says...
Sept 15/13 After making my pickled peppers and coleslaw I still had some peppers left. So I got to do some pepper jelly. Last spring I attended a house party and got to taste test some hot pepper jelly that was delicious—not too hot and plenty of yummy. I couldn’t wait to see if I could make something similar. So … the recipeCombine 4 large peppers chopped (I should have chopped them finer) 1/2 c jalapeno peppers (or, I used 3 of my “little blue” pep...
Sept 14/13 ”Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers” and MsDebbieP canned them .. all 7 quarts of them. I’ve never canned up peppers before; I’ve always put them in the freezer (which is so easy).I have also never really eaten pickled peppers before other than whatever they got tossed into. This spring, however, one of the farmers gave Rick a jar of his pickled peppers and I gave them a try. They were nice, not hot and not too pickle-y. And I used them i...
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...
This year is so much better then last year! Yes, cats eat vegetables, he just loves to chew on amaranth leaves that make a very tasty dish with a little bit of garlic.
Here is a short video update nine days after planing my organic container garden. Lots of growth already. Enjoy. http://youtu.be/0FeD7FYiguU Please comment with any advice. I’m new at this, so I’m sure there are things I could improve. My next update will have a couple of my failures. Regards, Jeff
9/29/11 Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers….MsDebbieP picked a bushel of yellow, red, and green peppers… There is supposed to be freezing temperatures on Saturday morning so while the rain was taking a pause today I took the opportunity to pick my peppers – and there were lots of them. I first planted peppers in this location three years ago (I think it was three years). It was triple-mix soil spread on top of newspaper spread over over a patch of lawn to ...
I’ve been told that hot days and cold nights makes for good peppers. Well, we’ve been having a bit of this lately and the peppers love it. You also see a few beans and the last leaves of kong xin cai.
