It’s Bok Choy and green onions. Sometimes I don’t always use my veggies and they start to welt in the fridge. The kids decided to nurse them back to life. Its been nursed for two weeks. I think I will keep the Bok Choy as a “house plant” in the RV. Yes… its in a salsa container…
Oh boy…don’t get me going on this topic! Here in the north we are just getting ready to start our seeds. We don’t typically plant outside until the end of May. BUT, I tried something new last year. I start my plants hydroponically, using the kratky method. And I actually keep my lettuces going year round in the house using kratky. When I started, I used all kinds of containers, but this year I decided to stick mainly with mason jars.
Of course, I’m not much of a picture taker, so I don’t have any to share at the moment. Last spring I had picked up some cherry type tomatoes from the farm I go to and decided to use some of their seeds bc they tasted so darn good. They worked perfectly!
My issue here is we live in the woods and full sun is hard to come by. We used to have a small garden years ago, but the sun kept disappearing more and more so we gave up. Last year was our first year getting back to it. So I decided to do all my plants in big grow bags where I could move them when needed. We put up some fencing to keep the critters at bay as well.
We do all organic and use natural methods to keep pests away. Once I get started again, I will post some pics!
That is my problem here too. Usually have 3 lettuces’, basil, kale, peppers, arugula, etc. from October thru April. Then is gets too hot for a good yield. The freeze did me in this year now it is too hot to start the cool weather produce.
I do have a soil mix tower with my herbs which helps.
We harvested the rest of the Black Seeded Simpson today.
These two look like they will make it if we keep them in the shade and only let them get some early sun.
The wife said it’s salad every night for the next week.
That is fine with me, I make wraps with the leaves. Yummy!!
Well…we have 5-8 inches of snow coming Thursday night…LOL
I don’t even bother with any lettuces or greens outside. Darn little varmints steal it. I’ll never forget the year I have 2 rows of greens taken down in one night. It was fenced, but they dug underneath. Too much of a pain to dig the fence down bc of all the tree roots. A few days ago we counted 26 deer and today our backyard was loaded with wild turkeys. Trust me, if things ever got bad we wouldn’t have a shortage of food!
I’m just so glad that more people are gardening again!
Wow guys!!! I LOVE seeing peoples gardens!!! We are in northern michigan so…. Its winter until May. I am craving the dirt and planting and working in the garden, the sun!!! I’ve tried convincing my husband to move haha.
I have started my own seeds inside before with great success and I have also bought plants from our local Amish nursery. We have from late May until September/October, so not a long growing season. Usually we plant:
Herbs-Basil, Dill, Stevia, etc
Lucky you to live up in northern Michigan!! Are you in the UP or the other side? it is so beautiful up there!!! I know…short growing season, but the minimal people factor is a plus to me! LOL Have you ever tried blueberries up there?
