Indoor Container Garden 4

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

This is video 4 of my experiment growing vegetables indoors. This is after 3 full weeks of growth. The green beans and white onions seem to be doing well. The lettuce and green onions are alive, but maybe not so good. I started a new white onion bulb, 2 green onions, a Rooster Spur pepper plant, and a Cherokee Purple tomato plant. To help save money, I have resorted to using 2 liter soda bottles and milk jugs when the plants can use that size pot. I also got a smaller full spectrum light bulb (27 watt cfl, 100 watt incandescent equivalent) and a hangable lamp. It is not the final solution, but an interim step until I can order a 105 watt, 6500k bulb. See more at www.weirddivide.com

    Indoor Container Garden 9

    Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

    Sorry for the delay since the last video. We had a daughter born about 2 weeks ago and things are just now settling down a bit. My indoor garden has been doing well. I have blossoms forming on my tomatoes and my peppers are growing well. I’ve also started seeds for peppers and tomatoes for an outside garden this spring. See more at www.weirddivide.com

      Indoor Container Garden 7

      Monday, September 5th, 2011

      I have green beans all over the place now. Another week and I should be able to harvest my first pod. My Cherokee Purple tomato has sprung right up and started looking like a tomato. My Brown Berry Cherry tomato is above ground. I have 2 peppers above ground and 2 still trying to germinate. On recommendations from Grosend88 in the comments on video 6, I’ve added a fan that I am going to run when the lights are on. I should probably run it all the time, but then I would have to plug and unplug it. Right now, I just use the switch on my power strip to turn everything on and off so I’ll be lazy for now. I decided to start 3 more green bean plants – 2 in 2 liter bottles, and one in a milk jug to see how little soil I can use and still get green beans. I also decided to try my 2 varieties of lettuce again now that I have a better light and see if I can get something from them. Thanks for the comments! See more at www.weirddivide.com
