I had the idea to call this a victory garden thread.. but that was already taken
And I know.. about a year ago, I started a thread about this too.. but this search feature sucks ! So Im starting a new one. Shoot me.
I have been saving seeds over the last couple of weeks to start growing on my patio.
I have -
Tomatoes ( beefsteak, and tiny sweet ones)
And I am attempting to dry some cucumber seeds now.. but they keep molding on me.
I have one large almost 3 foot deep pot that i want to use for my cooking herbs. Mostly so I dont have a 1pot to 1 plant/herb ratio because I dont have that much space..
Tax return should be here in about a week and I am going to construct planter pots with basic wood planks to fit on the back patio where I get the most sun.
Everything can be grown on a patio with the right attention... what I am looking for.. are semi full sun plants that can handle high heat, high humidity.
I have been saving my wine and glass water bottles to help keep soil moist and help with even watering. .. fertilizer is coming from natural gardner and will be mixed into the soil + a small bit of mulch and some brown paper bags .
I will add worms, and periodically lady bugs.
Most things I am starting from seedlings and they are ( the seeds) drying now to begin growing in doors in about a week or so..
i want to steer away from one time eating plants like broccoli.. or salad greens. I need things I can eat from several times.. Squash is quickly becoming a staple in our home as are tomatoes and purple potatoes..
How easy are nuts to grow?
Green onions.. I know wild onions pollinate themselves and keep going..Do green onions do the same? Or do I have to uproot them like some bulb plants , freeze them, or keep them dry and replant them next year? I may dedicate a small pot to green onions just for the hell of it.. but that isnt mandatory.
