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 #1: Grow Light's

05-27-2017 07:01 PM by jwarner | 0 comments »

Due to not enough lighting in my house with No east window and the west window now getting enough sun to keep my plants alive when started from seed. I had to go another route. some 35w LED Grow Lights. Going to see how this goes, see if it will perk up what remaining plants I started. I got Carolina Reaper, Habanero and 1 Cayenne Pepper and a Few Beef Steak Tomatoes in my Flat. This will be a Blog Series of how well these LED 35w Grow Lights will work. This is a Photo with the La...

Finally

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...

Can't Wait for Summer!

01-12-2015 11:30 AM by jwarner | 1 comment »

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. ...

Sunshine Grows More than Tomatoes in My Garden

08-12-2014 12:40 AM by ReubenD | 1 comment »

A few weeks ago I finally managed to get the long awaited garden shed built. Getting the agreement to build the shed had been a more difficult process than actually building it, if you recall an earlier post I did here about the Garden Shed Controversy. Once it was settled to build the shed, my wife pitched in and we had it built in the course of a weekend and few evenings and fresh coat of paint and roof shingles added the following Saturday. After spending the late afternoon and early eveni...

Garden Journey 2013 #8: Tomato Harvest

10-03-2013 10:57 AM by justjoel | 6 comments »

My tomatoes are finally coming in fairly steadily, but then again the cold weather is starting in on us a little early too. I’ve been covering them here and there, watching the forecasts and checking the actual temperature each night. I’ve re-used plastic table cloths from a work event to cover them, coupled with some utility lights underneath to provide a little extra heat. The cold has all but killed some of the more delicate flowers and my cucumbers, squash & melons, bu...

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...

Garden Journey 2012 #7: Meet the Tomatoes

10-10-2012 12:05 AM 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...

2012 Edibles #30: Saving Seeds -- Tomatoes (Question)

09-27-2012 08:58 AM by MsDebbieP | 9 comments »

Sept. 27/12 This year my main goal (other than the big get-together) was to start saving seeds. This year hardly any of my crops produced anything, other than the tomatoes and peppers. Fortunately these are key elements in my garden as I preserve a lot of salsa. As for the goal of seed-saving, however, I basically gave up on that this year because of the lack of good crops. I will buy some (hopefully) good seed next year and work from it. Having said all that, as I was picking som...
