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...

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...

Garden Journey 2013 #4: The Tomatoes

07-09-2013 09:58 PM by justjoel | 9 comments »

Before I get to the gardens themselves, I’m going start with a few items that I consider to be some of my main “crops,” mainly the beans & tomatoes, as they are planted all over the place, and thusly have a bit more of a story than, say, the onions (though I could talk for at least 20 minutes about my onions this year). As for the tomatoes, I know I have 14 plants, with six varieties planted, but there might be more. Each year, at the end of the season, I dig a compost pit for the win...

Tuberose, Dahlia and more.

12-21-2012 09:27 AM by sharad | 9 comments »

This was the first time I planted Tuberose on my terrace garden. The plant grows to about 3 feet tall. The name has nothing to do with the Rose. The tuberose is named for the shape of its rootstock which is tubular. The bulb produces tall flower spikes with numerous tubular, funnel shaped white blooms and are known for their very sweet intoxicating and seductive perfume. They are used extensively in flowerpots. The two local popular names for this flower are Nishigandh and Rajanigandha. Nis...

This Year's Harvest #7: We've got tomatos

07-19-2012 09:31 PM by chscholz | 4 comments »

After three years of trying we finally managed to grow a few tomatoes! The first year we started too late, to got too warm before the tomatoes set flowerThe second year, last year, well, let’s not talk about that. It’s been bone dry here and nothing really grew well.This year was good. There is nothing that beats the taste of fresh tomatoes right from the wine.

My Organic Garden Oasis #8: Chapter Eight - May 2, 2012

05-09-2012 01:07 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

Hi fellow GardenTenders, This video is from May 2, 2012 with some still photos taken on May 2, 3, & 4, 2012. With this update, I’m finally all caught up editing the footage that I shot before I found GardenTenters.com (via Lumberjocks) and started this blog. From here on out, I’ll try to keep the updates shorter and get them posted closer to the date they were filmed. I’m surprised at how much footage I have collected already. Lately, it has felt like it took...
