Gard-nin' Mk17Country code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42081423[Last 50 Posts]

So its the end of February, which means, if you grow your garden from seeds, its about that time to start germinating.

I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing it as like, a group thing.

Growing vegetable plants is really inexpensive. You can get seeds at the dollar store, normally 4 packs for a buck, and then if you can get your hands on a few paper cups, a sunny south facing window and some dirt, you're all set!

The risk and costs are low, (if you fk up, the market still exists) the payoff is high, (eating something you grew yourself is a great feeling of accomplishment) and growing your own food is a really good skill to have!
Its a no-brainier for the person looking for a hobby with a payoff that has limited funds/time!

If you ever wanted to try, I thought this would be a cool way to get into it, keep each other interested, and combine our knowledge.

Im no expert, but i do have the basics down, so i can help get people started.

I'm starting soon, so if there is interest let me know, and I can start taking pics and stuff of what im doing to get going!

I can't do much more than herbs in my apartment, but I built some raised beds and indoor incubators for seedlings so dad can still do some gardening without having to move around too much. He can only transplant a few plants a day but he's making really good progress.

Oh awesome, herbs are great indoors, they dont need as many grow lights as vegetables.

Indoor gardening is my next winter project. What kind of herbs are you growing? Do you have a sunny window? Even if its no south facing you can get some beans or peas going with limited sunlight.

Watermellons can be hard, they need a lot of space and energy.

If you do like a tomato plan, green beans or carrots, you would get better results if you dont have a place to grow outside.

This might be a good hobby to get into to put your mind on something.

If I try, I'm worried those damn deer prions will turn up in whatever soil I use and bind to the produce since I'm in a tainted state.

Buy soil at a garden center.

Make sure the back says "Now! 100% Prion free!"

That way you know its good.

Or, you know, dont get dirt from underneath a dead rotting deer corpse.

Looks like if no one caught it from eating the meat directly. I would venture that the odds of your soil containing LIVE misfolded proteins is probably near if not at zero, unless there's deer brain on it when you find it.

It's the shit I'm more worried about.

>>42081453
Uhhh...what is meant by "live" versus "non-live?" The prion's shape is what makes it a prion. I heard that trying to burn the particle can fossilize its shape into other ashes and effectively create a non-protein particle that has the same infectious properties.

>>42081459
No, being a misfolded protein makes it a prion and they tend to breakdown when it decays. Unless you have the worst luck ever and are planning on being the first human ever to get CWD while simultaneously not actually even consuming deer meat, the dirt is fine. If you're that concerned, put the dirt in a cupcake pan or brownie pan or something and literally bake it.

Honestly, >>42081474 is right, there is almost 0 chance of you getting it, esp from the soil.

There is a lot of media hype about it, esp recently, because it gets people to click and share, but there is really no cause for alarm, esp on the level that you wouldn't even go outside because of it.

I have a small patio, but proper crops have a habit of leaking on my downstairs neighbor. I'll improvise something soon so I can have some fresh lettuce.

Maybe a collection pan underneath the bed? is it raised to like, table height?

Depending on the dimentions you could use long large storage containers, thats what i use.

they are about 3' long by 1.5' wide and about 8" deep. They have little wheels on them so i can pull them out. Thats what i use for a starter, one on top with holes drilled, and one on the bottom to collect any leakage.

Its just a bigger version of putting a dish under a cup or flower pot.

You might even be able to frame up a a small tarp, like those cheap blue ones they sell.

I still have some rosemary, green onions and one radish I had grown last summer that I brought indoors. Sadly I had to kill off the parsley because it got covered in aphids, and it was growing too much anyway.

This year I think I'll try carrots, and some lavender to keep bugs away. Maybe some lettuce and beans. I'll need to get my hands on another planter though, I won't have enough room for all these seeds!

Looks like the property the gf is buying in the Central Valley might actually come together.

It's got a flat roof with no plenum which is part of why its cheap. We're gonna build a rooftop garden up there, and do fruit trees in the back.

Gonna add a layer or two of foam insulation board, sheath that with some OSB then do the TPO welded-rubber roofing material then add some topsoil on top of that, maybe add some garden boxes and maybe a quanset style sunroom area.

Glad to hear things are going positively with that.

Look into straw bail gardening for a roof top, saves a lot of weight with more density over soil.

Sounds like a great tip, thanks! Its super important to reduce weight cuz i don't wanna hafta retrofit the whole house to do this.

At a glance it looks like a good solution for the larger-root-volume stuff for sure.

I've got an Aerogarden that doubles as a nightlight.

It's not in use at the moment, but I usually do Holy Basil, Garlic Chives, Wasabi Arugula Lettuce and Oregano.

There's quite a bit of debate whether those things are any good for growing personal marijuana plants. I never tried, but I understand you'd have to disassemble and jerryrig most models to accommodate those huge plants.

My house plants (coleuses and a castor tree) are surviving the winter okay, but short daylight hours and dry air are taking their toll and the leaves are wilting and falling.

So it turns out that it's considered a weed by the gubmint, and it looks like selling/importing the seeds is regulated/illegal. I guess that explains why it's impossible to buy here.

Idk about the MJ haha.

I can never seem to keep a houseplant that isnt edible alive... so you are impressing me that you even can.
Though, i have a bunch of hooks for hanging plants that were left in one of the big windows from a previous owner, i keep meaning to try again because i think that would be cooler than blinds in that window.

I normally do plumb, cherry, heirloom, and beefsteak.

Which i guess is all of them, but they all have different uses, and they ripen at different times so you almost always have a harvest once they get going. There are different specific breeds to each of those too, but im not very picky and i buy whats on sale.

There are no best or worst tomatoes, all tomatoes are the best tomatoes.

I hope you have better weather than we do.

It's been so hot again and there was so little rain that they are already expecting huge losses in crops, similar to last year.

I hope so. We had an apple blight 2 years ago, along with a HUGE haching of gypsy moth caterpillars that wiped out a lot.
We are just getting back to normal.
So far its been cool and rainy, so good start. My Raspberry bushes are already rocking.
I hope your weather improves,

Still getting down to the 30s at night, so I'm a bit worried about leaving my plants outside. Also, as always, got a bunch of bald patches from where the goddamn moles tore holes in past years and I haven't been able to get grass established well enough to survive the winter. This spring, instead of just spreading plain grass seed over the patches, I'm paying more for the full patching blend with water-retaining mulch and see if that works better.

If its still below, or even near freezing, you shouldnt leave them out over night. But during the day might be okay.
Im getting a little walk in greenhouse i think this year. They have them on sale for 50 bucks at a local discount store.
Have you thought about doing sod? Its expensive, but worth it once its all done.

Eight out of nine lettuce seeds sprouted, and I think I see one of the peas this morning too. This is working!

I got worried for a bit because I watered the soil too much early on and there was fungus growing. Also the weather's been just terrible, barely any sunlight at all.

Not yet, unterground water is still on an average level and we generally have a lot of water... still, it continues the trend of last year. We are about 4.5 °C above annual average in temperatures with way too little rain.

Same here weather wise. April Showers in full force.
I germinate my seeds in paper towels. Basically i moisten the paper towels and fold the seeds up in them, put them back in the package to protect them from light (and so i dont forget which is which) and stick them in the kitchen drawer.
I did that last Monday, so i will be checking for germination on tues or wed probably.
I do it this way so i dont waste starter pots and i can kinda widdle down the least robust of them.
I think i did 32 varieties, so ill prob end up with about 60 plants, if all goes well.
>>42087770
Well, its good to know the water tables havent been effected. It might just be a natural drought. It happened here for about 3 years in the 90s i remember as a kid. We were rationed on water, so like, you could only water your garden on certain days depending on where you lived... they mailed out a chart.
Now we are way above average on rainfall, so hopefully its just a passing thing for you.

I bought grow lights today, because its been a little over a week since i put my seeds out to germinate and i havent seen the sun in a long time, and its been colder than average here. Figure that will give a boost.
I meant to set them up tonight, but i didnt haha.
Hopefully tomorrow.

At least there has been no shortage of rain, wish i had barrels out.

Grass seed is doing well too, lots of baby grass, filing in well.

It would probably be simpler if I got some grow lights too, but all the ones I saw seemed too expensive for what they are. For now I just have the handful of seedlings by the window, in the choicest spot to get maximum sunlight.

It's still a bit cold at night. Once it's warm enough outside, I'll move the potted plants and have some more room for seedlings by the window.

Speaking of, I should probably maybe start the next batch. It's been two weeks.

They are expensive for what they are. I paid about 80 bucks for 2, but that was with the ballists and wiring included (and a little stand i doubt ill use).
While i was at the store i also got an LED one that goes in a normal lightbulb socket which might be good for some indoor stuff, and i like the light it gives off, honesty wouldn't mind them in all my lights haha.

I really want to try growing through the winter this year, so its an investment.

>Speaking of, I should probably maybe start the next batch. It's been two weeks.

I wish i had done it this way, rather than one big batch.

>I really want to try growing through the winter this year, so its an investment.
The potted green onions and rosemary managed to survive the winter just fine by sitting by that one window that gets all the sunlight. I was really surprised how well that worked; I always thought there was not enough sunlight for plants to survive. The green onions even flowered and dropped seeds before the winter was even over, crazy plants.

>80 bucks for 2

Yeah, that's about the price range I saw... why is it so expensive.

>I wish i had done it this way, rather than one big batch.

This is my first time doing it this way, last year I just planted them in the soil directly. I had that issue with the radishes where I had so much of them all at once, and they all grew huge, that there was just too much radish for me to eat. So this year I figure I would try to stagger the plants a few at a time.

I planted the pea seedlings in a planter, but I think I waited a bit too long... I heard roots breaking as I lifted the cups, even though I tried to be gentle. Lots of broken root bits stayed behind. I hope the plants don't die!

I started another batch of 3, hopefully they can take over if anything happens. I'll be sure to plant that batch much sooner so the roots don't grow out of the cup so much. I'm also going to try to set up a mirror to reflect more sunlight onto the plants, I happened to have a big one lying around.

The idea is to over plant each container and prune the plants that are doing the worst, leaving behind the healthiest and strongest.

I think that my rosemary might actually be dying, or at least starting to. I noticed a while back that some of the tips of the leaves were starting to go brown. Maybe the soil doesn't have enough nutrients anymore, since it's been almost a whole year it's been in that planter. If not, maybe it's just from being kept indoors over the winter. Last possibility is maybe root rot.
I hope they'll get better once I can bring them outside and give them some fertilizer or compost.

My Linaria didn't take. I think I'll get some more and some better soil, and cut out the fancy stuff.

Beans are doing amazingly though, and my carrots and radishes are taking. Pepper looks good too, but I worry it won't get fertilized in here.

Just replanted the new batch of peas with the others, they had already outgrown the cups. This time the roots didn't break when I pulled them out and replanted them, since the soil was more dry. The previous batch seem to be doing well too, they keep growing and taking a nice green color.

Looking forward to next week, I think it'll soon be time that I can put some of the plants outside.

This is why I'm bad at this. Hopefully it's savable.

Though I just cleaned out the ceramic container I had the dying succulents in. Exchanged the cactus soil for potting soil, planted a few more radishes.

I moved the mature plants outside this morning! They seem to be doing well, they got a bit of rainfall too just now. I also cleaned out some of the dead rosemary leaves that had fallen to the bottom of the planter.

Now that I have so much more room, I rearranged my seedlings and peas and added more lavender seeds to the batch that hadn't sprouted... I don't think that batch was ever going to sprout.

While I was moving things around, I accidentally bent/broke one of the big leaves on my lettuce plants ;.; I hope it'll be ok... I moved them all much closer to the window, and placed the mirror to have better coverage. They're so big now, I'm going to need to replant them very soon, most of them have huge leaves. I think they're going to outpace the peas in growth spurt.

This weekend I can probably start thinking of setting up my modular planters, filling them up, and maybe planting carrots! My one goal this year is to get a nice batch of carrots or five.

Spring is pretty. I don't do anything with the crab apples though. They're reall small, almost like berries. I could try one but I've heard they're really sour...

As for the new radishes, theyalready started sprouting! I wonder how much longer I should let the other ones go for?

I put the peas out and set up some mesh around the planter. I hope this works out and they start climbing it on their own. I had to tie them a bit with twine because it was windy and some kept falling over.
One of them has some sickly looking leaves near the bottom. I don't know if I should be worried about that, or if it was just lack of sunlight...

Also added some compost to the green onions and rosemary. I'm sure they'll appreciate that.

I think the new lavender seeds sprouted! Lots of little shoots just poking out. They may have been encouraged by the older lavender seedlings I bought at the gardening fair and placed next to them. Hopefully they'll grow faster than the previous batch.

The lettuce is getting restless. I put all the pots together by the window and they're all crawling all over each other trying to compete for the sunlight. I definitely need to plant them this week or on the weekend. I hope they'll have enough room with all eight in the same planter. I'll try to put them as near to the edges as possible so they can spill out.

Looks pretty good to me. You could always try one of the smaller ones and see how it looks/tastes. They don't look like they grew too much.

Today is the coldest June in recorded history, so I put all my plants inside. I think some of my lettuce might be dead...

You're definitely right, they coulda gone a bit more. Especially that skinny boi don't know what his deal was lol. Well we did get rain it felt like pretty much every day. That might have cause them to get more leafy instead of grow the roots out. Oh well, I wanted to get the lettuce planted sooner. And I was getting antsy to try these guys out! Still got the other radishes going too, so I'll let those go a bit more.

Gonna make a salad out of em tomorrow, just need to grab some carrot and cucumber or something.

About time to start harvesting some lettuce (and maybe replacing the dead/stunted ones), and the pea pods are growing nicely. Looks like it'll be a good harvest this year.

So much lettuce! It doesn't even fit in my spinner basket, and there's lots left on the plants. Going to turn this into a breakfast somehow. Not bad for first time growing lettuce.

Yes to starting earlier. I hesitated a bit because it was my first time ever doing it. Plus we had kinda a late winter. I would have loved to try some kind of pepper but for this climate apparently you gotta start em indoors in spring before putting them outside.

What went wrong? Kinda hard to do in batches unless you have the room to do it. You looked to have a nice indoor grow light setup though.

How much green stuff? Mine have a little bit too but not too bad. I think it's probably algae, a little won't do too much harm, but a lot might. Supposedly a sign of overwatering. Algae thrives on moist soil, so if the soil doesn't dry out much you get algae.

Also, mix some hydrogen peroxide in your water. Otherwise, you'll be plagued by bugs and root fungus.

https://dengarden.com/gardening/Hydrogen-Peroxide-for-Plants

This article says 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. I was taught to use 1/4th cup of h202 for every 2-cups of water. I guess using much less would be cheaper, since I go though a Costco 2-pack of h202 to kill off the gnats when I bring the potted plants inside for the winter.

Bok choy gettin leafy

Dang really? I thought peas love the sun/summer. I guess depends on where you live, figure they would be thrivin. Been mid 80's here for past few weeks.

I don't know what else it could be. I've been watering them as much as all the other plants. Maybe root rot? But I figured that would have killed them much sooner than now.
Looks like the other surviving plants are also starting to dry up... I guess they'll be dying soon too.

Hmm. I'm not sure I can only guess. Depends on where you live, but it seems like peas are a spring/fall crop for most places. I'd think green beans would be the summer ones you'd want.

Been fertilizing? Or maybe even fertilizing too much?

Hah. Get on my level. My *entire* garden is dead.

I haven't been fertilizing at all, I used a potting mix.
I thought about maybe they just give the one harvest and then die, but it seems a bit fast.

Depends on what potting mix you used. But I wouldn't think they would have that much fertilizer in em. Some but I'd think enough to get plants started but not long term.

I bought one of these it was really cheap and I've barely made a dent into it so it'll probably last my small amount of plants years lol. Toss a little bit in the watering can every little bit.

Potting mix?

I just use community compost with some perlite mixed in for drainage and occasionally water with diluted hydrogen peroxide to keep the fungus and odor down.

I don't have a picture on hand, but all my plants are looking spectacular. Even the castor tree, after I accidentally snapped the top off trying to break off a dead piece instead of properly pruning it. The broken top part seems to have survived and established itself as a cutting.

Wood glue to seal a broken stem is a lifesaver.

Check and see if your city or county operates yard waste collection sites that provide free compost.

It's probably a lot cheaper to make your own yeah. Especially with compost. This was my first year ever planting anything, I really just wanted to do something easy and not get way over my head. Wanted to just know I could actually grow somethin to begin with, without worrying if I was mixing stuff properly lol

Nice trees

Lookin not too bad. I was wondering if I might have killed the bok choy when I transplanted em but they're not wilting which is good.

Some bugs eatin some holes in a couple leaves but I guess that's to be expected. Hopefully they leave some for me!

Thanks!

The table is still just a piece of plywood... which since it's left outside is actually starting to peel. Probably not gonna last forever.

Should really think about building that actual table pretty soon and treating it.

It's the classic college dorm table, and there is nothing wrong with the classics haha.

What's a table anyway? It's just a flat piece of something, with some other something's to hold it up to a desired hight.

I just don't think class ic college dorm tables were meant to be out in the rain for very long lol

I wonder if you can even properly apply sealant to plywood?

Haha true.
I have sealed plywood, it depends on the quality of the board and how pourus it is though.
Honestly, it would probably be better and cheaper to use fiberglass, even just the resin.

I think you can get pressure treated plywood, but I don't like to use PT stuff around plants.

Hope its not too late to get started.

This patch was the previous tenant's chicken yard for years until this March. Its suuuuper rich and perfectly mellowed for 3 months and this hose up has some areas i went to my knee and its the same rich chicken compost all the way down.

Gonna plant a buncha stuff n see if anything grows, doing a second possibly bigger patch for corn n whatnot maybe tons more snow peas.

That's perfect if it was chicken area and they were left to scat.

You should be able to grow well there.
Are you starting from seed or buying already established plants?

Better check the PH content, chicken poo is generally quite acidic.
