      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

          African Keyhole Style Garden, Vegetables, Copper tools, and Bio Char!!

          Thursday, February 10th, 2011

          The Aftrican Keyhole garden is a very simple and effective way to grow vegetables in a small amount of space, nothing is hard to reach which makes planting and weeding simple, great for Kids and the elderley. the central compost bin acts as a source of food and water, like a biogenic battery, I had a zero budget this year for my garden so I used recycled building rubble for the stones and an old unused compost bin, I just layed newspaper on the grass, applied some garden compost, added Bio char and some old tin cans, another layer of newspaper and then a layer of garden compost, the only material I bought was a few growbags to top up the soil and seeds. Detailed instructions, support packs, etc about this are available from this African charity website: www.sendacow.org.uk/africangardens www.youtube.com Dear fellow youtubers “Send a Cow works alongside some of the poorest people in the world to help them create brighter futures. This year, we will help almost 16000 families on their journey out of poverty. And because our farmers are encouraged to share the help and support they receive, they’ll go on to lend a hand to an average of 10 further families, creating a ripple of hope across communities in rural Africa. It’s a special benefit to our work which really sets us apart. If you’d like to know more about Send a Cow, why not find out what makes us different? www.sendacow.org.uk If you’re already convinced, then we’d love you to support our work www.sendacow.org.uk Or

            Tips for a starter vegetable garden?

            Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

            I live in North Carolina where the soil leaves a bit to be desired, but I’d like to start a vegetable garden. I have a nice sized backyard to do it in and we’ve grown vegetables before, but only tomatoes and some sunflowers. I want to do something on a larger scale.
            Tips please?
            I have no idea where to start in planning this thing.
            Thank you.
