        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!!

            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

                  Kelly’s Upside Down Vegetable Garden – Update 03

                  Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

                  This is the update for Thursday June 11, 2009. I am going on a business trip so I thought I would get this posted before I leave. All I added this week is a 10 gallon bucket of Carrots but they haven’t started coming in yet. Other than that I have lots of new growth on the tomatoes and the squash is all of a sudden starting to take off. I will say that keeping the suckers pruned back on the tomatoes allows the plant to concentrate on fruit as opposed to leaf production. It’s also a good idea to keep any dead or damaged leaves off of the plants because it won’t spend time trying to repair them. You want the plants to spend all their time on new growth and fruit. Keep the comments and suggestions coming. It is always great to get everyone’s feedback on what I am doing and get new ideas. Happy Gardening!!

                    Kelly’s Upside Down Vegetable Garden Update 05

                    Sunday, March 13th, 2011

                    Hello everyone. This is a quick update for July 4, 2009. Not a whole lot new other that tons of growth. I am starting to get ripe tomatoes which is great. Also, I have watermelons coming in and the cantaloupe and cucumbers have small fruit on them so I will have plenty to update you on in the next video. The bad news is that it looks like the Japanese beetles won as far as the grapes go. They are looking quite bad. Almost all the leaves are gone now. I am hopeful that it will come back but it doesn’t look good. The good news however is that I kept them off of everything else. Finally, I have transplanted a few of the last cantaloupe and cauliflower seedlings to large containers so I will see how that goes. That’s about it so until next time. Everyone have a fantastic and safe 4th of July! Happy Gardening and Happy Independence Day America!
