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 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
