Clones of Stevia and Tomatoes

Posted on June 9, 2013 at 4:26pm 1 Comment

Today made for a great day to clone a few new plants for my garden.  I have made it a practice to buy two plants and put one in the soil and the other in the A/P garden, but to take cuttings from both to get new starts.  The new starts are in soil pods and will be placed in both the soil and A/P Garden as they develop roots. 

I have been successful at cloning Stevia, Basil and Tomatoes.  I am nurturing cuttings from my peach tree and various other herbs like oregano and thyme.  I hope…

I went back to Lowes in a pick-up to buy the second load of gravel, “a thousand pounds”, but this time I would need to unload it by myself.  I had the bright idea to unload it by the bucketful into a rolling trash can.  You know the heaver duty kind that the city services use.  The trash can held most of the gravel and I was able to pull the bag and pallet off the truck with a little help.   After that I had trouble…

It’s addictive and all consuming! The sweet smell of blossoms with all their color, green fruit, boldly firm, promises of juicy sweetness and then even splashing water!

Hi Becky.This is my first year too. I just put together a small 45 gallon proof of concept to satisfy my wife. I've had some mixed results with some veggies stresing (chlorosus and necrosis). I've added iron and Maxicrop but I am now speculating my # of fish may not be high enough. I ave to do some more researh. I'd be interested in seeing your rig sometime. Regards.

Thanks.  It has more grow space and is not as tall.
