The shade cloth is only after the final plant out late September and then permanent till June. This past winter it also helped to protect a few plants from our light frost . I left them out to die and they survived without me doing anything else.
Germination and then lights inside from July to August. Small pots outside in the Spring sun for September.
The shade nets are permanent fixtures over my raised beds and buried containers.
One other grow area has sun early morning until 12, then all shade.
Okay, I mentioned the other day that I sent off my parcel to my SS recipient, and that I sent it sea mail to keep the costs down. And that it was going to be late getting to it's destination.
Good news is that they delivered it in just one day.
Bad news is that when I got home from work, it was sitting on my doorstep.
It would seem that some bobble head in the mail sorting center doesn't know the difference between "sender" and "deliver to" and they delivered to me instead. Amazing that nobody else in the mail chain picked up the mistake either.
Oh well, back to the post office tomorrow.
Sent my package with DHL , expensive , and received it back in 5 days.
" cannot send a non-commercial fluid to the destination "
That would be my homemade hotsauce I included in the package.
By normal soil i mean dust/sand which we usually find at our backyard when we dig earth . Cow manure is totally black in color and smell like earth . I have peat moss too but its too costly (1$ for Kg ) in that amount i can get 5 kg compressed coco brick .Cow manure available at 3$ for 40kg bag . I bought some seedlings for nursery , One in compost only and growing slowly, one in 80% peat moss and20% manure and gwoing crazy
Any manure on it's own is too strong.
20-25 % manure sounds good , as you have seen with your own results .
