Staggering rows allows me to maximize the limited space I have. If that's not an issue than do it how you want. 8:1 should be more than enough. You can always get additives to put in the soil to rejuvenate it. The mycorrhizae I mentioned is really good at that. Maybe some sulfer and bone meal with some kind of kelp and fish fertilizer, that will essentially give you what bagged soil has in it. As far as soil go I would recommend foxfarms happy frog, it's always worked wonders for anything I plant in it.

Well, we have been getting a pretty good amount of rain lately. For plants anyways, the creeks are allstill dry and the rivers are pretty fucking low getting lots of growth and flowers, not a lot of fruit. Haven't got a single pepper yet. I'm going to get the winter garden seeds planted this, or the next weekend.


winter… garden?

The last three photos show beds I shook seeds out of my hand into. After that, I covered them with a small layer of dirt then watered them. I find what works for me with root veggies, is it's better to just kind of throw them around. They will figure the rest out once they start sprouting. If you were to mass produce, for lets say a market, or store, you would want to take more care to stagger, or plant them in rows. Considering my neighbors, friends, and I are all I grow anything for, I'm more careless with planting root veggies.

Everything else we planted:
Red cabbage
Red kale
Red chard
Red salad lettuce
Red salad lettuce gen I
Cucumber gen I
Cow black eyed peas
Snow peas
Brussels sprouts
Mixed lettuce greens
Anything that is gen I is first generation seeds from a plant grown from last year. The radishes I grew are the only thing I've tested for germination, which was about 80%. Hopefully everything else be the same.

Then we had a feast about it


have you ever considered to get a greenhouse


If I had the room for it I would. Honestly having a controlled environment like that can help quite a bit, as long as you can keep it sterile.

Is it time consuming? Do you tend to your plants daily, weekly?


Thanks. When you get the hang of it, it becomes fairly easy to grow a decent amount in a small space.

>Is it time consuming? Do you tend to your plants daily, weekly?
The most time consuming part is seeding, or transplanting. Depending on how many plants you want, it can take anywhere from a couple hours to most of a day. Refertilizing your soil after something has lived out its life cycle would be the next most time consuming thing. As for tending to the plants, I water them daily when it's hot outside, usually taper down to once every few days in the colder months. While im watering, i check for bugs, or any kind of indiscrepancys with the plants. When they are seedlings, and in the flower stage, I fertilize once a week.


ladies like your plants?

Most of them, yes. The abuelas in my neighborhood are always complimenting me on how nice my garden looks year round, and confess how they picked my vegetables while I was at work. It's pretty cute, it makes an easy in for talking to their granddaughters too :D

No seedlings yet, except for the spinach, cucumbers, and black eyed peas. Kinda bullshit, I have to reseed everything with new soil. I choose happy frog this time, it's hands down the best bang for your buck to start seeds or seedlings in. on the bright side everything that sprouted was from seed of a plant I grew from last year. That makes me really happy to see the seeds have altered their genetics to grow more successfully in this region of the country.
>pics related
I planted garlic, red and white onions last weekend too. Hopefully they will start sprouting soon.

I've never grown garlic or onion successfully. I bought these ones from a feed store near by, as opposed to trying to grow them from what I bought at the store. We will see how it goes.

In these 5 pics you can see how my transplanting process worked. I started by removing the seedlings from the small containers they were in, and replanting them in larger ones. I only transplanted kale, chard, and broccoli today. Everything else can wait. We are going to set up an aquaponics tank in the next week or so. I'm going to give most of the small black pots away to friends when they get bigger.

Just a small harvest. Lots of green cherry tomatoes on the vine though. Bunch of peppers getting ready too. The seedlings are bounching back just fine.


who gave that tomato permission to be long wtf???
are peppers pretty easy to grow? they are a qt fruit


Peppers sound good


>who gave that tomato permission to be long wtf
The Italians did
>are peppers pretty easy to grow?
For the most part yes. They need to be watered regularly if they are in full sun. They are very heat resistant, however, they do not like cold at all.

The whole garden as is. I've gotten several peppers and Cherry tomatos so far. There's one brandywine that appeared too. It's been a strange year for gardening. Nothing has done as well as I had hoped, things are still progressing well though.


how do you prepare your garden for the winter?


>how do you prepare your garden for the winter?
Normally as long as winter is average, to semi average as far as snow/cold goes I'll cover my plants with 3mil plastic sheeting. Basically painters plastic, it's see through enough that it will let light in. It also will increase the ambient temperature roughly 3-5 degrees depending on sunlight for the day. Obviously on over-cast days, not quite so much If it drops below freezing seldom here for more than just the light, I'll string some of those c7 Christmas lights through the plants being sure to not touch the plants with the bulbs, they will create enough heat to burn them to produce enough heat to prevent the plants from freezing. If a freeze is anticipated, I'll water a little bit too, the water helps insulate the roots, and oddly enough, can help prevent the roots freezing/plant dying.

The extra two hours of direct sun light in my old lot makes a huge difference. We can see by these photos of the cabbage, brussles sprouts, and broccoli that we grew there compared to my place.

In two months I'll be seeding summer crops again, most of it will be grown down at my neighbors. I'll grow a few things here too. I'll take side by side photos to show the difference. I'm working on a small aquaponics system by my house too
>pics the kale, onions and carrots I seeded and grew at my neighbors


whyd you grow at your neigbors?
aquaponics is cool, any pros/cons?


>whyd you grow at your neigbors?
Him and his missus are good friends of mine, they moved in on my old lot about 10 months after the septic tank caved in. we use city sweage irl the current year, the property manager never had a survey done so there's x² septic tanks that are dilapidated and turning into sinkholes scattered about the park I had to move roughly 14 months ago. They are at the end of the lane, and the natural sunlight is just, slightly, enough to make the difference in good/great plant growth. big shade trees make shade
>aquaponics pros/cons
Pros: you don't need to use fertilizers, or water plants.
1: have a tank, pond, body of water
2: fish, ok turtles, p legit or ducks, top tier shit in the water. A pump, pumps the water into a raised bed, made of expanded shale or pumice rock and the choose your animal waste feeds the plants.
3: set pump on a timer for max efficiency
4: ???
5: profit!
Cons: raccons niggers raep fish, and ducks. Cold/cool temps rekt fish, and/or force turtles into hibernation ducks may also migrate and never return foxes and coyotes will fuck a duck too, if they catch one.

Final seal dried, and he moved stuff back out onto the shop floor. He owns a music store


cool, how do they feel?
i wanna polish the concrete in my garage, i finally got a place that has one
how hard is it?


>how do they feel
It's smooth enough you can slide on it in socks. That's just the basic sealer though
>how hard is it?
I have never polished a concrete floor, though in theory all you would need to do is rent the grinder with a polishing pad, and run that across the surface. All those dark spots are divots where it was unleveled in the pics, so it really helps to have a level surface to start with. Grinding makes a fuck ton of dust, so cover everything, or move it. My skill set is more of regular water based stain, paint chipping which leaves a texture on the floor and epoxy regular and metalic which is more liked to polishing. A good epoxy floor you can slide like ice across. I'll post some pics once I find them on the comp

Cabbage, broccoli, kale, and chard all doing well. The broccoli is bolting already so hopefully it will seed
>pic 2
Seedlings popping up. There was a lot of rain the past few days, that always helps. I've been debating a rain barrel too. I need to get an air stone, and fish and the aquaponics will be running.

Dill getting ready to flower. Hopefully it will go to seed! :D if you use the flowers from the point they are now until bloom it will add quite a bit more dill flavor to pickles, or what ever you're seasoning

Two cherries middle and a brandywine right

Generation brandywine from seed about ready to plant. Some peppers and cucumbers transplanted.
>pic 5
Seedlings ready for transplant. I'm kind of surprised more peppers didn't germinate. I'm giving them more time though, because the weather hasn't been conducive for them to sprout.

Pulled my garlic today. A bit smaller than I expected. Hung them to dry after I braided them. The small ones I'll plant at the end of the year and see if more garlic grows.
