      Vegetable Garden in Phoenix

      Saturday, May 7th, 2011

      This is my first garden. I started the project thinking we’d just have 1 or 2 raised beds but it turned into something much bigger. Everything is done organically (no pesticides, no chemical fertilizers etc.) and “veganically” (without the use of manure, blood meal, bone meal or any kind of animal product). 99% of the vegetables are “heirloom” or “open-pollinated” meaning the seed has been bred true and saved for at least 50 years and will continue to breed true when you save the seed…as opposed to a “hybrid” which has generally been bred for appearance, shelf life, yield, disease resistance but rarely taste. A saved hybrid seed will not breed true to the vegetable you saved it from. My family and I built the structure. I started everything by seed, mostly indoors under a grow-light system. What I’m growing now: Tomatoes Peppers Eggplant Basil Squash Cucumbers Watermelon Cantaloupe Mint Green Beans Calendula (for tea) Tepary Beans Onions Garlic Indian Corn Strawberries Okra Tomatillo Sunflowers Parsley Amaranth What I grew over the winter: Lettuce Kale Rapini Broccoli Arugula Beets Carrots Peas Bok Choy Spigariello On an unrelated note, check out the band I’m in with my 3 brothers. www.kongos.com

        Indoor winter gardening?

        Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

        I have a 5’x7′ sun room in my apartment that has large windows on three sides. The room contains a lot built in shelves and counter space.

        I think it would be nice to plant some vegetables in this room for winter. I’d like to get started right away so that the vegetables will start fruiting by at least November, if not late late October.

        I’d like to certainly plant tomatoes and eggplant. What specific varieties of tomato and eggplant work well indoors? What other vegetables work well? What varieties?

        What have your experiences been vegetable gardening indoors? What tips do you have?
