cool thanks bud glad you posted
heres your old thread >>>/kc/914>moth plant>it attracts moths
whats the benefit to that? >basil
nice i grow some sweet basil indoors but it just seems very sickly and crowded (its just in the same shit i bought it in)
idk if its too much sun, too much water
sometimes i forget to water and it gets kinda burned;_;
Why are you posting here now OP?
>Old thread >>914
Link's not working
It's for another board too so it needs to be fixed
>>784>whats the benefit to that?
I like the moth around. They get some pretty big ones here. I dont think it has any other benefit, other than producing a really pretty white flower. Will post pics when it matures.>nice i grow some sweet basil indoors but it just seems very sickly and crowded (its just in the same shit i bought it in)
If its growing larger then when you bought it try transplanting it into a bigger container, they could be root bound or have root rot.>sometimes i forget to water and it gets kinda burned
You have it in a window, I assume? In the end it shouldnt be too much of an issue. I know I try to give my plants only morning sun, its too hot later in the day. If your basil is in a window you also could try putting it in a window facing east.
Thanks for linking my thread btw :D>>785>Why are you posting here now OP?
Gardening is a hobby too. Ill still post in the other thread I suppose. Im trying to spread the good word of plants. >links not working
ah shit hey plantbro, how's the compound? get your deck up?
giant moth swooped in last night, powerful wind from the wings blew all my stuff over and caved the roof in
made a BIG mistake with those moth plants
>>792>ah shit hey plantbro, how's the compound? get your deck up?
Alls well over here. I had to move lots in October because a septic tank caved in. I never quite put the deck back up. Ill post pics in a few of what it turned into
that is a nice flower>deck
what am i lookin at exactly?
looks like a 4x8 plywood sheet on top of some cinderblocks?
shit sorry about the septic. that's gonna be comfy af. how much bigger are you going? gonna put the gril on it?
>>799>what am I lookin at?
That's whats left of my deck I was making out of pallets. Pics are in the other thread.>>800
Thanks. In the end im on a bigger plot, so I have more room to grow. >how much bigger are you going
At least to the end of the camper, maybe 2 more feet out. I just got a raise at work so it should be attainable by the end of summer now.
you have a pretty good variety, ever cook stuff with it?
I do cook often with what I grow. In the other thread there are pics of the hot sauces I made last year. Im looking forward to that again, Ive got a couple different peppers to try with growing this year. Im going to try making my own tomato sauce with the San Marzanos this year. If they grow half as well as they did last year ill have a bountiful amount. The pickling thing is kinda new to me though. Ill post pics and the recipe I use as the time draws near.
lookin gud budy
looking forward to seeing what you whip up with em
neat, i just found out nutmeg goes well with spinach
do you have to like, feed the plants besides water? like they have to get some kind of new dirt or something rights? hows that work?
>>835>do you have to like, feed the plants besides water?
No, you don't have
to feed them anything except water. >>782
outlines what fertilizers and pesticides I use in my garden. I can go more in depth about why I use what I use, if you, or anyone else is wondering.>like they have to get some kind of new dirt or something rights?
No, they don't need new dirt necessaril. If you have the money to buy new dirt every year you can, and other than lifting bags of dirt, it's the easiest way to rejuvenate your soil. I'm a bit of a cheepskate, so I buy additives for the soil I already have, like fish emulsions. Before spring, and fall gardening I gather all my used soil into a container and add the fish powder. I usually throw egg and shrimp shells, and coffee and tea grounds into that. Between those and the fertilizers I add through out the growth cycle, my plants tend to do well.
I have been weary.
Added 2 new fertilizers for my liquid solution. Fish powder high in nitrogen, will help promote leafy growth
and fish bone meal high in nitrogen, will help promote more flowers, thus more fruit
Tassels on the corn, should start seeing some sweet corn over the next month I assume as I have never grown corn before>pic three
Cantaloupe stretching out and flowering>pic four
Cherry tomato plants almost doubled in size>pic five
San Marzanos are getting a lot of growth. They have doubled in size since I took these photos this past weekend
is growing in topsoil even a thing there? so weird to see plants being grown outside in pots and beds
maybe its a benefit to be able to move em around?
Where I live I can't plant anything in the ground.>>851
It does help being able to move them. The peppers do better with more direct sunlight, so as the summer wears on, I'll move them accordingly. It gets hot enough here that nothing except the peppers really needs more that 3 hours of direct sunlight a day. The heat and indirect sunlight takes care of everything else.
>pics 1 and 2
One of many toads I've seen in and around my garden. yet another sign of a healthy eco-system.
>pics 3 and 4
More corn husks developing. The grass hoppers have been eating the leaves, I'm going to buy a praying mantis nest and let them loose.
I have more plans for this evening, it's too hot to transplant right now.
Has anyone here tried stress training their plants?
ya sometimes i'll send them false late payment bills for mortage or eviction notices, play loud music all night, or ask my black neighbor come over and terrorize them
I pluck the flowers before they bloom on my peppers. This makes them bush out more and grow more flowers, thus more peppers. Sometimes I'll skip a watering too, it makes the roots grow farther out in search of water, in turn making the plant larger.
interesting recipe and jar lid
also why slicing cucumber?
ever tried to make kompot?
>>876>why slicing Cucumber
I like slices better, or small whole picked Cucumber. I also got some ground beef from a local rancher and slices go better on burger :D>>877>ever tried making kompot?
No, what is it? If you leave a recipie I'll try making it.
dump any (combination of) (optionally dried) washed fruits and berries (slice them if they are large) into boiling water for 5-10 minutes then let it cool down overnight
by the morning kompot is done
best when cold, perfect summer drink
typical combos are with apples, grapes, cherries, plums, currant and etc.
if your combo end up too sour you might want to add sugar, if it's too concentrated you need more water
Pickles turned out pretty good, I used a bit too much salt though. The corn died, not sure if I didn't water it enough or what. I learned that when the Tassels growing out of the husk start to turn brown, it time to harvest. I will try again, although I haven't made my mind up if I going to seed now, or in a few mobths when it cools down. It's still been too hot for much of anything to happen.
Another round of fertilizer and some new bones for my yard
Cucumbers keep vining out, they aren't producing flowers or fruit though. Peppers are kind of stagnant, they are flowering, not fruiting yet.
My other peppers and egg plants living, not doing much growing though.
One brandywine has shot up, the other hasn't grown an inch. they need to be where the pepper bed is for better sunlight
The cherry and paste tomato bed. They are shooting up like the weeds they are, flowering…not much else going on right now, sadly.
The germination rate on the radish seeds was about 80%, again though, the heat killed all the seedlings. :/>>880
That sounds pretty tasty, I'll make some and report back eventually.>pic 1
Cantaloupe still alive and well, no fruit though. You can see the dead corn in the blue bucket>pics 2 and 3
Cherry and paste tomato close ups. They are branching out which is good and bad. If I don't clone, or tie them off to something the weight of the tomatos that grow will break the stalks.>pic 4
First clone attempt of one of the Cherry tomatos
>>890>If I don't clone, or tie them off to something the weight of the tomatos that grow will break the stalks
that doesnt sound like a very good design
whats the point of a plant sudokuing itself like that
gettin enough rain gardenbro!
>>891>whats the point of a plant sudokuing itself like that
Procreation. As long as the main stalk of a plant like a pepper or tomato is intact, the plant will keep growing. If a branch breaks, or the fruit falls off, the seeds inside the fruit will germinate and grow a new plant.
Hardly, it's rained 2 good times since May. Hurricane season is there though, hopefully a few will scatter rain storms here. I've been watering every night though.
