Growth fertilizer and insecticide for the plants. My mix is organic and chemical. The sea weed, sea salt, and buddha grow are organic fertilizer. The b12 is chemical strength b12. there is enough for 200 gallons of solution in that little pouch The sns 209 is rosemary oil the plants soak into the roots. When bugs try to eat the plant, the rosemary repels them. it takes 1-2 weeks for it to take effect in the plant cells, and will last for 3 weeks after feeding
>pic 2
All that in the bucket.
>pic 3
The solution after adding water. I mix it while adding the water, and let it sit for roughly 24 hours before using it. I mix it again before pouring at the base of the plants.

cool thanks bud glad you posted
heres your old thread >>>/kc/914
>moth plant
>it attracts moths
whats the benefit to that?
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


>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

>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.

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


>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
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?


>what am I lookin at?
That's whats left of my deck I was making out of pallets. Pics are in the other thread.

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.

I was repotting my peppers and found the first skink of the year! Skinks are a sign of a healthy garden, they are one of the first signs you are creating an ecosystem. at least where I live. Or lizards, and geckos which I haven't seen yet I've never seen one this color either!
>pic 2
All my peppers repotted. I used dirt plugs basically a 1x2" soil plug to start most of the pepper seeds in this year. I don't like them, I found it challenging to know when they needed to be transplanted. That was because the roots didn't grow as far out of the 2x2" pots as they would in soil. I could have transplanted them over a week ago judging by the root growth. The soil I tried this year wasn't good for starting seeds in either. All in all, I'd say im about two weeks behind on growth. Last year had an unusual amount of rain though, which could have contributed to the massive growth I got from my plants in the first couple months.


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?


>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.

The brandywine tomatoes haven't grown as much as I thought they would. I think I should have put the container on the other side of the raised bed so they could have got more sun light.

Pole beans sprouted. I'm saving them for seed for the fall. It's too hot to grow them currently, and I think the plants are dying from the heat.


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.
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.

Pulled the lettuce to make room for the peppers. The tiny pods have a bunch of tiny seeds inside. I'm letting those dry out then will harvest.


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.

This is what I did with that Cucumber.

1 large Cucumber
5 garlic cloves more or less to taste, I like garlic
Added those into the jar I had already put 7 dried red cyanne I had from last year and a few pinches of mustard seed. Added freshly cut dill out of the garden last.

While I was cutting:
2 cups water
1 1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup salt 1/4 cup is what I was told, I prefer salter brines. Again, make it how YOU like it

Heated that mixture to melt the salt, then stirred and poured into the jar. It's cooling now, once its at a better temp I'll refrigerate it for a week and tell you how it turned out.


interesting recipe and jar lid
also why slicing cucumber?


ever tried to make kompot?


>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
>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.

The germination rate on the radish seeds was about 80%, again though, the heat killed all the seedlings. :/

whats the point of a plant sudokuing itself like that


gettin enough rain gardenbro!


shit, busted


>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.

Well, still no real rain to speak of. Fertilizing is paying off, the tomatos are about 7 feet tall and are finally starting to fruit.

Cherry tomatos taking form, basil getting huge. I'm going to make pesto with it as soon as my buddy let's me borrow his blender

Another Cucumber finally growing. I added my last 2 beets to the pickle brine I made. They are scrumptious if you're into that kinda thing

2 toads living in my garden. I be havin dat ecosystem bangin fam. I haven't seen many pests, I assume between those 2 little guys and the skink they are eating good.
Not much else to report, the heat should subside a bit in the next month or so. Come September I'll start seeds for my fall garden.
