[Total: 0    Average: 0/5] You must sign in to vote I planted all my plants from seed with the help of my children. We put our tomatoes out in April under plastic and they are doing very well. Raised bed gardening is the way to go if you don’t have good soil. We filled our beds with good composted soil and are hoping to have an awesome harvest!!! Video Rating: 4 / 5

    I use organic matter to fertilize. Left over whey from making cheese, cow manure, chicken manure, compost.? My plants really like the whey.

    What? do you fertilize with?

    Your entire layout and general dedication to the process and self-sustenance is very inspiring. I demand a video of the sunflower wall! I hope you ended up doing that because it seemed like a perfect idea.

    You could also use tiny screw hooks and cord to train vines? like cucumbers, in a fun pattern on that wall for textural contrast. Either way, thumbs up!

    May I make comment for what it is worth , in the 40’s 50’s and 60’s beds we slept in had a tightly woven base of wires they are not made any more, seen many at the rubbish tip being? disposed off, akso try the second hand oportuneaty shops so cost next to nothing they are great for sifting all the stones and rock out of the soil,

    lovely I love? the sound of the birds..

    I don’t know for sure if that will work but google it. I find lots of answers that way. I don’t mind answering any questions but I’m definitely not an expert. Everything I do is from trial and error learning. I have to try something to figure out what works best for me. I’ve been criticized for having? my plants too close or too bushy blah blah blah but I do what works for me and I get plenty of produce to preserve and eat fresh.

    My kids love bell peppers 🙂 They know not to eat the hot ones? 🙂

  • Kristie Horn 4 years ago

    I was able? to harvest plenty of vegetables using this method. I don’t have a lot of space to work with.

  • Kristie Horn 4 years ago

    The? straw worked great. I hardly had to pull any weeds and it kept the moisture in the soil so I didn’t have to water as often. Just make sure you use straw and not hay. The hay is too heavy and would probably get nasty and moldy.

  • bradkrit 4 years ago

    Did? the straw work out for weed prevention? I want to try that or the landscaping fabric.

    not enough space between your plants?

  • aarondegroot 4 years ago

    I really enjoyed looking at your plants.? Grow more, use a drip system. Good job!

  • Kristie Horn 4 years ago

    Yep I like to fish too 🙂 Those aren’t all my fish (my husband caught a few) but some of them are 😀 I’d love to see pictures of your garden. We’re getting ready to start some indoor seeds soon too :)?

    Beautiul garden!!

    I’d place the “kid area” away from where your peppers? are growing – kids just have that tendancy of placing everythng into their mouths.

  • Rixterkat 4 years ago

    beautiful garden and I’m positive you’ll have a great harvest!

    I started? late on mine this year.

  • MeSeeUTube 4 years ago

    Awesome garden? ! Great job !
    Your tomatos in the first 30 seconds of this video look AWESOME !

  • Kristie Horn 4 years ago

    I live in Missouri and I believe our average last frost is April 1 to April 30th. I started my plants indoors and when I put them out there were under cover for the first? three weeks so I got a head start on the growing season.

  • Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I to find It truly useful & it helped me out a lot. I am hoping to give something again and help others like you helped me.
