            Kelly’s Vegetable Garden May 29, 2010 – Update 2

            Thursday, August 4th, 2011

            Hello everyone. This is a quick video update for my garden. Not much to talk about other than massive growth and lots of tomatoes popping out everywhere. I keep getting spinach, lettuce and broccoli because it has been so cool here. Today was our first day in the 80’s and it looks like it’s going to continue for a while which is good news for the garden. My next video should be a lot more interesting because I will have more to talk about. I couldn’t do any upside down garden this year because the fence belongs to my neighbor and he wasn’t too keen on me do it…. so I have decided to do something that I haven’t done before but I have always wanted to. In addition to planting a bunch more things in wine barrel containers, I’m putting together a hydroponic garden. I have been cloning plants for a long time but I thought it would be interesting to start growing them hydroponically and compare the growth using traditional methods. It should be interesting. I will try to do a video of the entire building process so stay tuned. In the meantime, happy gardening. Kelly

              Kelly’s Vegetable Garden July 9, 2010 – Update 3 / Harvest 1

              Monday, July 18th, 2011

              Well, I figured it was time to do an update / harvest video. It’s July, 9, 2010 at about 8:00pm and I was harvesting tomatoes when I decided to do an update. As you can see, I am getting a ton of tomatoes and squash. The cucumbers and peppers are finally moving along and I should be harvesting them soon as well. Also, I have cantaloupe starting to form and hopefully my plan of setting them on planks across the wire cage will work…. We’ll see… All in all, it has been a great growing season so far and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. I still plan on doing so hydroponic garden but I decided to wait until the end of the season to do that. I’m also going to put in a greenhouse so with any luck I will be growing things throughout the year. Here in Napa Valley the growing season is very long and I’m going to try to make it a year around thing. I plan on recording the process of building the hydroponic system that I have designed as well as the assembly of the greenhouse so I will keep you posted on that. I hope everyone enjoys these videos and if anyone has any suggestions, questions or comments, don’t hesitate to post them. Take care everyone and happy gardening!!
