garden

Hey all just want you to know my tomatoes are looking great! They’re finally starting to turn beautiful colors! 

Get ready because now the yeilds are coming in, all the work of caring and tending is about to pay off! Fresh BLTs, fresh tomatoe sandwiches, fresh nom nom nom nom nom. Get gardening in your backyard and experience the joys!

Nomnomnom

Heirlooms are fun because they tend to reseed in areas that you’re not expecting a plant. Later you realize wow that’s a tomatoe from last years varietys!

Wow that’s a pepper 

Holy cucumber!

Garden update 7/12/16: production is booming 

garden

Walked into the garden this evening, it’s been a while since I’ve paid much attention to it. My hose timer watering them every morning keeps my work load low! Holy heirloom tomatoes!! I’m yielding baby! 

Go ahead an try to compare home grown to store bought. 

Pictured about is one clustered bed garden, I ran out of cinder blocks but planning to get another pallet next spring. It’s going to get immensely better, other worldly.

More borage flowers than I’ve ever seen, so many bees! Plant some if you never have.

Raspberries producing steady, might be peaking soon.

Raspberries by the cup full each day! Plants growing enormous, going to split them and split them they grow so well here! I want blackberries though, there’s always tomorrow.

Letttus sprouting!


My heirloom pumpkins! I also am battling the rabbits I hope to win, may begin trapping them and relocating them elsewhere. They aren’t that bad though with the dogs around.

Please enjoy

Remember 

I love you.

Grapevines, cilantro, and compost!

Compost Pile, garden

I bought these grape vines 2-3 years ago and put them at my parents. Since the vines haven’t really taken off yet they’ve been moved and battered. Finally I think I’ve found a spot they’ll do good!

They are growing up my wood made structure im sure there’s a name for it but for now we’ll call it a topiary. 

Look at my compost pile tearing it up!!! Just a hustling through my shreds of scrap and forming Rich fertile soil!!!


And my cilantro and just kicking in gear! We’ve had a few storms and the thunder and lightning really treated them right! They’re kicking it out!

Video: Red Wiggler Worms working in a Compost Pile

Hey ever since I started “Lenny’s Worm Farm” ive always been interested in the ways worms play a vital role in gardening. When I started this compost pile a year ago I knew it needed red wigglers, a breed of worm known for its ability to eat and munch on all the good scraps and produce worm castings. I bought 200 and released them hoping for a good turnout. and now I can say I think its happening there are tons of worms in my pile. Oh they just love me ❤

please enjoy this brief video:

Thanks

VIDEO: First of The Plants In the Ground, Garden 2016

It’s finally time, I brought my plants out from the indoor closet set up I crafted together. and let them into the environment. I wish I had eased them into it because I fear the cold nights my stress them out a little bit. I also wish I had invested in some topsoil + cow manure to fertilize before planting. Anyways it is what it is you live you learn.

Keep it real all.

Starks bro’s blue berry order!

Fall 2015

Hey Ye’ all I just got my new blueberry bushes! Check it I got three heirloom varieties! I got em from Starks bro’s:

  1. Blue crop blueberry 
  2. Jersey blueberry
  3. Earlyblue blueberry

Since my soil has treated my raspberries so well I think these will do good! I put some roots organic soil in the bottom of the hole and planted them on top! I’m hoping to have some blueberries this coming summer.
