    Pulpiteer 2017 Grow Log

    So, it sucks that I only find time to post only about once a month.  I've not kept up on glogs.  Ugh...  But, for what it's worth, here's an update:     We had a pretty dry stretch through June and into July.  We just got some wonderful rain this morning, and the garden is loving it.  Have you...

      I'm really curious how the mason bees will do.  I could really use the pollinators and they seem to be a great thing for the environment, as you say.     Here's a cool video I watched to learn about them:   We have a low of 44 coming tonight, I think.  We just had a bit of a cool front move...

    Pulpiteer 2017 Grow Log

    Work has been crazy, followed up by spring and plant out that has demanded a ton of my time, so I've been away... Anyway, here's a bit of an update with old pictures.     So I began with the ducks by using this set up for a movable paddock.  They don't scratch up everything, which is good.  They...

    Stickman's 2017 Minimalist Glog

      There's a video of Geoff Lawton called "Greening the Desert" I think you can find on Youtube where he uses permaculture principles and begins to actually turn around a desert plot of land in the Middle East.  One of the amazing things that happened was the salinity of the soil dropped quicker...

    Looking amazing as usual, Paul. Look at all the flowers! Those Aji lemon flowers are pretty aren't they? With that lime green on the white. The BOCs are one of my favorite peppers to use in jam or to spice up syrup. Solid pepper.

    Stickman's 2017 Minimalist Glog

    Your soil data and how you're amending it are interesting. Can you have too much calcium? I read somewhere that calcium actually helps a plant take in other nutrients as well. Some process where it's needed to bind with it somehow. I've also heard that earthworms will eventually work that dark...

      We're moving right along!     The OW to the left is a NeBru 7 - in fact, here is a labeled picture of all the overwinters       Thanks Rick! I think I'll run some meat birds through the garden area in a chicken tractor, but they won't be in the raised beds - so not much there.  However, we...

    Devv-2017-Having a good time in the dirt

    Very cool pictures of the bees.  Good to see them thriving around you.   I may have missed it, but how did you make that much charcoal?  It has to be burned with low air intake, right?  Or am I off on that.  Between your glog and reading Rick's success with biochar that he picked up from you...

      LOL, "mad skills" is very kind of you! I've got a plastic one, but man, that set up you have just looks pretty nice.  Plus, I have to tear mine down every year.   I hear you on the baccatums.  It's cool to see them shooting up, but always a challenge to keep them under control prior to plant...

    It's funny, I've been following along with your glog for several years now (which is kind of amazing and a whole nother topic, where did the time go), and this is consistently the time of year when I am jealous of your greenhouse.  It always looks so nice and especially so when you have it chuck...

    Howdy Rick! I've been working my way through your glog for weeks on my downtimes.  I always start on your glogs too late into the season and your pages are so high it takes forever!     Anyway, things are looking great.  Nice to see those plants fill in so thick after you stripped them. Your...

    Guru's Garden - Traveling the World in Search of Peppers

    Beautiful shots.  I had no idea what an octabox was.  I had in mind an aquatic storage unit with 8 arms. What it really is made more sense, but my mental image was awesome.

      Awesome - thanks for that information!     I am growing a couple extras of those to include in the pepper draft, and your description was added to the notes that each participant receives so that they are able to select the best peppers for their garden.  Thank you!     Alright, here's an...

    Awesome! That's great news - thanks for your help on that. I saw just a couple praying mantises around last summer, now hopefully there will be more!

      The pictures of the yellow bhuts look amazing - so I'm hoping they turn out true as well.  Thanks!     Awesome - those sound great.  I'm glad I started some.  I'm excited to see how they taste!     Wonderful - thanks for the feedback!     Thank you!  Yeah, looks from their dad...  ;)    ...

    Wow, look at the flowers on that!  You may get a few pods off that plant this year...

    Moruga Welders 2017 Grow

    I might have missed it from earlier, but what wattage of LED grow lights are you using and how high above the plants are they?  I had trouble with my LED's burning my plants, and yours look like they are doing great.
