Well, it's finally time to start. Again. :)

 

Finished taking inventory of seeds today, and started the 2019 grow list. Since the 24x96' isolation high tunnel is done, I'll be growing a crazy long list this year, as we'll be growing for 2020 seed inventory. With the soil mix equipment, it should be a lot less work on my back this winter! (Even more so if I get the indoor grow areas plumbed and set up on drip irrigation, still not sure I got the budget for that yet tho)

 

Some of the seeds I'll be pulling from are damn near 10 years old now, so I expect many of these to eventually get crossed off with 0 germination. Everything I have ever saved or traded is getting planted, though. There's 203 on the list right now, many duplicates though where seeds were sourced from more than one person/vendor. 

 

The grow room at home is getting a makeover, going to be "going vertical" to get some space back. More on that in a few days...

 

This list is not complete yet, I will be adding more after I hear back from a few folks I PM'd.

Most of the lettuce is for taste and local adaptability trials, small little plots. We'll be succession planting out most crops, small qty for market, so "big list, not so big qty."

 

Some of the stock (various herbs, seedless watermelons) is non-organic seed stock and will either be grown either in the north transitional field or in pots. 

 

570 fruit trees are also coming sometime early spring, those will go in to the dirt as soon as it can be worked after freeze. We'll plant those and forget about them for a few years.. just mow around them. All the big work starts in a few years with those.  Shouldn't need to irrigate them unless we get a big dry spell, and/or until they start producing.

Thanks! It's going to be interesting, for sure. 

 

Vast majority of these types are going to be in this, we'll get anti-thrip/aphid/etc screen on the sides when they go outdoors. Just the screen alone is like 3k, pretty big part of my available budget this year.

Going to build tables and cover them with sturdy hog fence, try to make it a bit easier on my back (and reduce the amount of 6mm irrigation tubing)

Well that's to be determined. But the infrastructure and soil mix equipment will make this a LOT easier on me this year. :)

 

mcPSVFI.jpg

 

nPdIgLC.png

 

Spent over 20 grand on soil mix equipment, had to rewire the big garage at the farm to handle the load.  Other than test that it turns on, I haven't used it yet. Soon! We'll be busting up some coco coir blocks soon. 

 

On another note, we've got everyone seed orders ready now to send out, took a little longer than I thought it would. We missed the mail cutoff today, our post office closes a little early. But now we've got some packed inventory ready to go as well, wife and I counted out about 10,000 seeds over the last two days, need to find a faster way of doing that. All told I've got over 458,000 seeds in inventory (a *lot* of that is vegetables though). And that's not counting beans (which aren't counted) or most of the pepper seed inventory (which also 95% of hasn't been counted). 

 

Need a damn seed counting machine. :)

 

The non-pepper list is also very long! If anyone is interested I can post up all the other goofy stuff we're growing.

Outside soil mixing (this year) we still DO everything by hand. Water, seed, transplant, plant out, stake up, etc.. all by hand. 

 

I managed 3200 pepper plants last year, looking to do about the same. Last year the big hang-ups on doing the isolation seed crop was by the time we got the high tunnel done, temps were high enough I was getting flower drop, so no joy on isolated seeds. The other big HUGE problem was mixing soil for the pot-up to 15 gallon pots, no way in hell I could mix that much soil by hand. My soil mix equipment showed up too late to be meaningful for last year.

 

But.. it's there this year. So I'm not intimidated by the prospect of needing some 20 cubic yards of potting soil. That's just an afternoon of work. :)

Good luck with everything!

 

Have the new boreholes been completed (mentioned last year) to help with the volume of watering required later this season?

And how many days since the last incident?

What is the endgame for all those peppers.?

 

Vast majority are for isolated seed production. We'll be selecting a dozen or so varieties across the heat range for market / wholesale / internet sales. Only ones for sure on the volume plant-out list this year are Aleppo, Tekne Dolmasi, MOA scotch bonnet, Habanero, and Reaper (or some hybrid thereof). 

 

Looks like you are really going to give your plants a great start with your new soil mixer .... all the very best and what a list you have for 2019. Customers at the local farmers market are going to have a very wide choice

 

Of the 200+ types we're growing most will be in isolation. I'll be selling excess pepper, cucumber, and tomato plants off at the earliest markets. We'll plant a dozen or so varieties out in to the dirt in quantity, the rest will be growing for seed stock. Goal is to end 2019 with 200+ individual varieties on the web store in USDA certified organic seed. 

 

2018 was a fascinating read, I'm sure 2019 will be the same if not better! Following with a keen eye...

 

Good luck with everything!

And how many days since the last incident?

 

 

The well is dug, pump still has to go in, pump house has to be built, 8 irrigation manifolds have to be put together, 120' of underground electrical trenched, and ~1600 linear feet of 3" 20' pipe still has to be acquired and buried. LOTS of work on irrigation this year ahead of me. First priority is getting high tunnels built, but as soon as I cover them in plastic I'm gonna need water, so it's also a very high priority to get all my ducks in a row on irrigation. Last year's manifold didn't survive the winter, our first hard freeze hit so fast I was still busy with teardown and had a bunch of pipes freeze and crack. 

 

Good luck with everything Trent.  I hope you don't go through all the problems you had last year.  I'll be watching!

 

You and me both!!!! I had my fill of problems last year. This year has to be easier. I can't physically get through another year like last year. Damn near ended up in the hospital, lost 13% of my body mass and my hair was falling out in clumps by September. I went from 186 lbs to 162 lbs, and I started out the year lean and muscular, so by the end of the season I was losing a lot of muscle mass. It took me over two months to get back up to ~180 lbs. 

 

Going to update the list soon, once I pick up some additional seeds from Justin. Started my cart last night on his store. Will be pushing 300 varieties once I fill in some blank spots w/ that order.

Added non-peppers to original post. Probably be talking about some of them at some point.

 

I'm probably not running many experiments this year, with the volume of stuff, and just me and wife working the farm this year, won't be time to handle any tracked experiments / data collection.

That list is insane.  Good luck.

 

The worst part is recordkeeping, to remain compliant with national organic program. I have to track seed-to-sale on every-damn-thing.

 

Xa1oGR7.png

 

I've got to track every last thing done to each variety; when it was ordered, when it was received, when it's seeded, how much was seeded (and how much remains), when it's transplanted, every fertilizer or amendment used in the ground it's in, daily field observation log (I accomplish this by taking pictures periodically, mostly), when it's harvested, amount harvested, how / if / when / who cleans it, when it's transported, how it's transported, who it was sold to, how much was sold and when, etc.

 

At the annual audit, they will randomly pick several varieties and I have to walk them through the entire history of that from where I ordered the seed through who bought it, and everything in between.

 

So the biggest problem with doing a large variety of stuff isn't necessarily the work of growing it, but tracking all of it.  Using excel because mostly it'll be cut & paste. :)

You betcha! My wife got more hours on seed packing than I did, so she deserves the lions share of the credit. 

 

I did, however, most definitely win the "most snot" award. Even with a respirator, which admittedly was ill-fitting due to my beard, I managed to lose about a gallon of snot doing the ultrahot seeds. 

My wife, apparently, is fully immune to pepper dust, as she didn't so much as sneeze ONCE, without a mask.

 

Hell I walked by the table last night and my mouth started burning. I have no idea how she can hover over a big bowl of 20,000 ultrahot seeds breaking up seed from placentas, and not so much as sneeze or sniffle. Meanwhile, our kids, which were totally isolated from the seed counting activities upstairs, were sneezing and coughing.

 

Anyway, hats off to the missus, because she's got a much higher tolerance for airborne superhot particles than I do.

I think that's it for the list building this year. That'll be a handful to keep track of.
 
High tunnel population density will be tricky, can't have dissimilar plants rubbing up against each other. Probably build some skids that are meshed in, which I can move around with the skidloader forks, with any spare mesh I have left on the rolls; especially for the bigger plants. The #15 pots will constrain their size a little, so they won't / shouldn't grow TOO gargantuan. Still, I've seen #15 potted chinense eat up a 6' diameter before.

great grow logs help me to understand  :think:

 

Looking forward to another great season on
