We have no training in carpentry or electrical work. We’ve come armed only with two Permaculture Design Certificates and a whole lot of determination. Join us on our journey to move beyond a sustainable lifestyle into a regenerative one. We chose to live in the desert because we love the location and we wanted the challenge of bringing this desert landscape into productive abundance. #greendreamproject #permaculture #gardening Video Rating: / 5

    Look into Hydroponics, we are up in Colorado and hydroponics if done right conserves a lot of water and produces great results in Gardening. We use the 5 Gallon bucket flood and drain system. We went this method over the traditional drip or spray method because it cuts down on the amount of water used. The 5-gallon buckets are drilled in the bottom and a PVC coupling is glued into the bottom for draining and filling. The pipes coming off the bottom run into the main PVC pipe that is ran from an aquarium pump in the water tank. When the timer comes on, the aquarium pumps turn on and fill the PVC pipes filling the buckets from the bottom to wet/feed the roots for a few minutes then turns off and drains back into the water tank. To prevent the water from pumping out the top of a bucket I have a turnoff set at the height I want the water in the buckets. When the water level reaches that level it spills over and returns back to the water tank. We originally tried to go big and have like 15 buckets off a single IBC tote, just everything got super expensive and the pumps just were not able to feed that many buckets viably and last, so now we run 3 systems. 5 buckets off each 55gallon plastic drum water tanks using cheaper $13 aquarium pumps. They are able to flood the system in just a few minutes and it keeps the price down on using cheaper more common parts. This setup had produced 10x more than all of our ground gardens in the past and uses far less water…. our 2 tomatoes plants last year gave us over 200 jars of sauce from all the tomatoes it put out.. dang stocks on the plants grew to nearly 3 inches in diameter… I think we canned nearly 500 mason jars last year from our vegetable garden…

    More digging and more cowbell please.
    I agree with you that there is always something to learn in gardening. The cool thing is that when you fail it usually doesn't cost you too much so no big deal.

    I've never grown comfrey, but maybe one day… I love echinacea flowers, it's one of my favorite teas during the winter months. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see the garden in full bloom!

    The pest stage is very frustrating. I wonder if some large flat rocks would help encourage the predators to hang out more? Don’t those lizards and things like hanging out on and under rocks? That coneflower is beautiful. I have heard comfrey spreads like a weed through its roots. I’m not sure what it is like in your area but you may want to bury a barrier around the roots. I hope you are harvesting more zucchini than you know what to do with soon.
