None of the plants are looking well...the herbs are perhaps the greenest, but they all are turning pale and some have white spots, which could partially be from the cold, but I think it's the soil. The compost we added just wasn't enough. I'll…

Fertilizer

So I did a Google search for "earth juice free shipping" and one of the links was to americanag.com. I ordered Earth Juice's Grow, Bloom, MicroBlast and Catalyst formulas to try out. It wasn't until I just went back to their site to look around…

Protecting the goods

For some reason, our recycling hasn’t been picked up for 2 weeks and it ended up being a good thing, I took out all the gallon milk jugs I could get to and washed them and cut their bottoms off. These are going over the tomatoes at night,…

More casualties

1 beefsteak tomato plant: lopped off so just a little bit is showing above ground with 2 tiny branches. Not sure if it can make it?2 Roma plants: seems it's too cold at night yet for them, there's some leaf damage that appears to be from the…

Green peppers are under attack!

This is why I planted 2-3 times more then we'd need of everything...I went out today and found something had attacked a pepper plant. It was knocked over with some of the grass mulch pushed on top of it (hiding the evidence? what kind of criminal…

Oh, it's on!

We were out watering and found an evil little furred or feathered creature got into one of the squash mounds. I think cat. While I'm tempted to sit outside with a pellet gun (kidding), I'll look into more natural and nice methods of repelling…

To do list, completed version

Transplanted roma and beefsteak tomatoes, all the herbs, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, and onions. Went ahead and transplanted the lettuce. The corn didn't need as much space as I thought so I put the tomatoes over by it, better soil.Direct…

To do list

My garden map keeps evolving the further along I go. Without much prior experience, it kind of has to. The off white areas are where nothing will be planted and/or are walkways. I planned on 2 types of corn, but after researching, I don't have…

Peas & Beans

I'm not sure I did this right, but here's the peas and beans transplanted into the garden. It was hard freaking work getting the ground ready and trellis built. The varieties of plants I got get 6' tall and heavy so I wanted to make it as strong…

Tales from the Crypt

I never actually watched that show... Tried to kill myself getting the taters planted today, but they're in the ground and I'm a little worse for the wear. Here's my absolutely adorable youngest helper. The 3 trays that are just about ready…

Hanging Planters

The strawberries seem to be ok after all that cold, I see more green. One plant isn't doing well, but the other 23 are growing. A cousin gave us these hangers (among a bunch of other stuff) and I just had to get the hanging containers....just…

Warming up....sort of

Well, the super cold system is gone. It left over 2 feet of snow on our friend in Alberta, Canada though LOL It's not real warm, about 45-50 right now, but warm enough to start hardening off the seedlings. So they are spending their first day…
