        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!!

              Summer’s Over! Vegetable Garden Update & Tour

              Thursday, July 7th, 2011

              One last trip through the overgrown jungle that is our veggie garden! We harvested an incredible amount of homegrown organic vegetables from this garden. Stuffed our freezer and enjoyed as much as we could eat fresh. Juicy corn, oodles of beans and sun ripened tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini by the bucketload, and enormous potatoes. That’ll do.

                    Kelly’s Upside Down Vegetable Garden 01

                    Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

                    I have been planning to grow vegetables like this all winter and when I saw Jason’s video, I thought it would be fun to document my garden as well. I had to wait a little longer to plant because I live in Springfield Missouri. We tend to have late frosts so I made sure that wasn’t going to happen. What you see on this first video, was planted on May 22, 2009. It is also the first time I have attempted to grow vegetables this way. So if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I am going to do video updates every week or so to show the progress. I hope you enjoy the videos as much as I enjoying working in my garden this year. Take care. Kelly
