#1554934 Best poop for peppers?

Posted by Masher on Yesterday, 05:09 PM

Worm poo

Rabbit poo

Llama poo

All three can be used from bung to soil

I have used rabbit and llama with great results.

I am working on getting worm this week and see how it performs.

Saw a nice video the other day from a pepper grower that had some excellent pod numbers with worm poo.

Not sure of the count still available if any but I would like to try one.

Very nice kitchen, that's one heck of a nice processing room you have.

So.... Update! I got my landlord to use his bobcat with tooth bucket and finally scratch me out a spot in this slabrock ridden ground to put some plants in the ground as I already have a container castle and still have tons of plants that need in the ground, esp tomatoes!

What would be some basic amendments that will really boost production and base nutrition/overall health (keep in mind I can still and will fertilize with organic or chems) to make this soil better or should I just throw some compost and rake it in and run it? It's clay based but has a lot of composted roots and isn't straight clay like I've worked in before. Perhaps you would call it "clay loam" as there is bits of sand and when it's churned up its loose. It's about 15ft long and 5ft wide d70fdb33f2ae2231bfeffbdff1779a90.jpg3d53f3b77789c1e8b628ae007e1fc4ce.jpg378fdd38ff919ccebadc7f8fec3b2726.jpg

Here's how everything looking btw 96e867480ab9bf43d695953f37e8c2f5.jpg17c5876e83978945d7db2b5534bb835a.jpg5f0be01e48ed2f46e13e4d648679d31a.jpg041a756d8265e8a2f52ba5780fcd4e05.jpg

Get a couple 1.5cu ft bags of soil amendment and some composted steer manure or similar.

Mix it in 4-6 inches deep and plant away.

Plants look great and robust, nice work.

Crappie and bluegill are great eating panfish!  
EDIT:  Do you guys skin walleye before frying?

I skin my walleye because I deep fry it. Never tried it with skin on and just pan fried.

Crappie, Bluegill, Perch all good eats at my table.

By cutting off the flower bulb it will put the energy into the planted bulb for bigger harvest.

I didn't plant any this season. Yours look great.

I love the flavor of chuck roast


Tomato Soup
DOP Tomato can, Potato, fried Mayan onion, chile powder, Garlic, Basil, Honey , touch ACV.
The DOP tomato taste was not impressive for the price I paid so will stick to regular. Got one more can and will do a sauce with it.

You are weeks away.

They will begin to send out a flower bud. Cut it off when it's still a solid bud about 6 inches tall.

Once the plants begin to yellow from green they are ready.

Pull, shake off excess soil and place somewhere cool and dry to harden off about 2-3 weeks.

Then gently brush off remaining soil and trim off tops to within 1 inch of bulb.

They are ready to use at this point.

#1552705 High drainage grow mix

He'll ya!


Kinda hard to test water to soil ratio since the plants releases water through the leaves.

Add some perlite if it's to compact if needed and go for it.

I love the saucer plan. I will be doing the same on my container plants this yr as well for those hotter months and heavy watering periods.

Frost last night, hope my Garlics survive.

Garlic loves frost.

I planted mine last season in Oct. They grew about 10 inches then the frost and deep freeze set in late Dec for about 3 weeks.

Plants never looked better and I had a great harvest in late May early June.

#1552696 Is this calcium deficiency??

Posted by Masher on 12 May 2018 - 09:23 AM

Keep at it and post back if you get it figured out I would like to see the end results.

I would say yes those temps are blistering heat for a damaged plant already stressed out trying to recover.

Give them morning sun and move them into the shade for the bulk of the day.

Good luck and happy growing
