Just last year I got into growing cannabis... (1)... state laws allowed it (2)... but I'm not new to gardening... I'm pretty sure some of you enjoy growing other plants (cannabis included) outdoor. I'm sure other farmers... and "this farmer" are interested and would like to see what others are growing... their gardens.. their methods.. ideas.. etc.

So to get the ball rolling.. I'll post what's going on with my garden and will continue.. to see If "we" can get the ball a rolling...

Okay... so it's tax get finished day... March 14th.. The sun is a shining and it's in the mid 70 F... I've been putting it off... but realizing if I don't get started.. it will be too late I'll be playing a loosing battle of catch up.. or if you prefer katsup...

First Job
Outdoor gardeners  growers lets talk show gardens soil methods pests critters gardening kind o

Hey BearWater... nice to find a fellow gardener.. hope we can find more..

"anything started to go outside yet"... well the only thing I started is cleanup of rear garden... wanted to start sprouting romaine... beets... spinach... this evening... maybe tomorrow..


So.. I did start this below... last fall the chickens ate the hell out of it... I gave up on it
the Brussels were just starting to get some size... just today I found it
I realized this must be a perennial 2 yr kind of thing...
not sure... 2nd time trying this veg .. 1st time ground hogs got em.

BRUS

I made a little progress on clean up... going to take it slow...
last year I dived in...way to fast.. messed my back up for 4 months...


CLEAN

Next time... going to burn the leaves row on the left.. and torch the green on the right.​

Great idea. Here's my tomato seedlings and my photos started last week in a old tent. Should have started them 2 weeks earlier so I'm already playing catch up. The tomatoes will be going in a raised bed and the cannabis in a poly-tunnel greenhouse. I'll post pics of those when I plant.(it's dark now)

Thats great!! For the plants that came up with multiple plants in one grid square, do you pick the “strongest” or do you pull them all out and get them in their own pots or planter space?

Here’s some pumpkins, zucchini, pole beans, watermelon, and some reaper peppers! I have tried the peppers last year and had one hang on and go to flower and fruit! Two peppers hahahaha! The tomatoes were looking awesome before this cold rainy weather came through, confident they’ll snap right back. Those are the kids’ summer snacks!

I usually plant 2 or 3 seeds per grid and pick the strongest one. The rest get culled. Always start way more than I need but can usually find homes for the extras with family and friends.

Ok I was wondering how hard it is to get them all out to replant without damaging them : ) I have always just put one seed per square. I think it’s better practice to do it the way you’re doing it though : )

My giveaways were in the smaller pots and not supported so this rain bent them over. They should pop back up, probably, maybe 🤔 hahaha🤷‍♂️

You guys are way way ahead of me... I'm totally jealous... so many things to get done.. and I'm always playing..

Well today I found this in the laundry room... right where I left it 6 months ago... I forget



Pot

Took my 1st shot at growing potatoes last year.. and wow.. with my rocky soil... they grew in abundance.


Bru

Getting back to that brussels sprout .. I can't understand it.. it's the same plant the chickens attacked... it dried up and died.. then this (when I don't know) sometime in the past month sprouted out of the dead... can't explain it...


App


My apple tree is showing it's Apple blossoms

it's way more efficient to plant numerous seeds and using a gentle touch repot the extras. I was doing one seed per cube until I experimented. I honestly did not lose one seedling out of roughly 7 flats of all different plants. I will no on start with a larger starter pot and when the timing is right just sperate and re-pot

pretty cool looking, yeah? I would wait until it finishes blooming and get it moved to a good spot. Too cool to let it get stomped

Bear.. I'm guessing your a bit north of me...
I’m in the Northern California area : ) I went and checked the soil temp yesterday (trusty finger in the soil test) didn’t feel cold at all. Some things will be going in later today! : )

I would construct a little temporary stick fence around it : ) nothing fancy, just something enough to catch your eye so not to step on it or to keep animal traffic off it. Then fallowing Otto’s advice after the bloom and transplant it : )

It’s beautiful!
