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!!

                  Vegetable Garden?

                  Saturday, May 28th, 2011

                  So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.

                  I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

                  My issue is this:
                  If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

                  Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli, but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

                  I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.

                  P.S. I have asked this in the garden section also, but surely there are some green thumbs among the vegetarians.

                  🙂
                  Thanks for all the wonderful answers so far. Spaghetti sauce sounds wonderful. I must add that tomato is an example. Any more general thoughts on vegetables in general, and enjoying them for longer would be very helpful.

                  🙂
                  Oooh, you are so right. I should add that.
                  I live in the U.S. in Ohio. Weather can be very tricky here.
                  Sometimes we have enormous winters, sometimes very hot summers.
