I have downsized my garden the last couple years. It always starts out as a family project and turns into my project. Decided to keep it small enough that I can enjoy it. Good luck everyone.



Thanks for stopping by Claykrys.I figured since work has not been so demanding this year that it would be a good year to grow a half ass decent garden.I love vegtables myself and if i have extra i can always gift to family and friends.Stay tuned,the show should get good in the next month.

Sweet eastwood! :bow: Looking good, pulling up a chair to see your progress in the next few months. I'll be tilling up my garden plot again sometime soon as I already have a few seeds germinated. I may grow some Cilantro too, for salsa.

Tenjin the Cilantro sounds good man.Snap us a photo when things start growing.

You gave me an idea though.I will use my PH meter and get a read from my soil and post it here,then maybe a member can give me some advice about my soil.


I took a few ph readings and thought i would post them.On the meter it says its in the ideal range.I believe i was using it correctly.

I am going a few various types of tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, leaf lettuce and a bunch of different herbs.
All are started from seed. This is my first season starting tomatoes from seed and they have germinated well in the starter flats.
I hope your harvest is plenty. There is nothing like picking from the garden and eating fresh vegies. Oh the wife had me plant green onions too. And my son wanted watermelon. I can never get my melons to be very successful, I am certain I am doing something wrong.
I will post pics as the season advances.

watermelons are under attack from a mold,
everyone is having problems,
had to sign a waiver to buy in bulk
acknowledging the potential for failure.
sucks.

Ouch thats not good Hip.I will keep a eye on mine when they get going.

It has been raining here all week so not much sun at all.I am hoping this weeks sun will get the seeds sprouting.It is nice out today.

Should i have the flats with the humidity domes in direct sun or having them in the shade is ok until they sprout?

direct sun would over-heat domes
so leave a crack for ventilation

I use beer bottle caps as props.
They raise the lids just enough so the nursery doesnt get cooked.
