    Vegetable Garden

    Anyone here garden?
    I moved out of my house last year and my garden ground is not available, so my redneck ass is planting my beefsteak tomatoes in pots this year.
    I can adapt to just about anything but its not natural to go through summer without one of my beefsteak tomatoes!

    Post up your pics of your garden!!!
    I cant be the only juicer that gardens on here.

    It is a fat ass, wonderful, sweet fruit that will make you realize why tomatoes are a fruit.
    The store have house grown, disgusting and bland beefsteak tomatoes but a homegrown one will blow your mind.
    They are the reason I garden. Its like heaven sliced up with cottage cheese or plain on its own.

    They probably have a hundred hybrid breeds of beefsteak, my great grandfather saved seeds from every crop each year when I was a kid. He had literally saved back so long that the breed was forgotten and extinct. A slice from the center of one of his beefsteaks would fill a plate and they melted in your mouth.
    My grandad claims to have found some of the seeds but I dont think he will share...

    Oh, never heard that term before. Been growing my own gardens since I was a kid. Being that I grew up in the middle of a wheat field.

    Just my opinion, the manliest thing a man can do is feed his family when others cant.
    My neighbor is basically self reliant. I am slightly envious.

    I agree, I was a prepper before that was a thing. Growing up in the country side we grew our own food and raised our own meat, eggs and poultry. Even had bees to tend too. We would spend the last days of summer canning vegetables for the winter and family to have. Can't wait to get back to that life style.

    Exactly how I grew up. Breaking beans and shucking corn. Its a superior way to live, makes for a tight knit family too. Everyone pitches in and everyone benefits. We begged for nothing and traded with neighbors. I have always been into prepping for survival. Thats cool to know about you.

    Want me to,teach you how to fucking kill it?

    For one, stop using tap water.

    Its full,of unbalanced mag and cal.

    Also its treated with chloramine, which will not offgas after 24 hours like it used to. It needs a catalytic carbon block to get rid of it.

    And chlorine will kill the microlife and render any and all organic fertilization useless. Unless you want to use synthetic salt based ferts. Even then, the amount of chlorine will hurt roots, as well as the already present tds of the water causing ph flux, and out of balanced macro and secondary nutrients.

    Ha I knew it! I lost an entire garden one year because of cornseed maggots. I planted the garden too soon after tilling and it just about killed me to watch it happen.

    We would let out ducks or chickens periodically into the garden to eat bugs. They might get some tomatoes and such but they loved grasshoppers. Made for better tasting eggs too. Lol

    Here ya go OBS,

    if your growing in containers use this recipe. You'll be amazed.

    1.5 cuft bag of good organic soil
    (Fox farm ocean Forrest, Kellogg, fafard, vermifire, etc)
    Add to each 1.5 cu ft the following:;
    4.5 to 6lb earth worm casting
    10 oz blood meal
    10 oz bone meal (fish bone meal works)
    10 oz of high P guano
    6 oz rock phosphate
    1.5 tablespoon Dolomite lime
    1 tablespoon green sand, azomite, or glacial rock dust
    1/2 tablespoon of humic ore.

    Get this wet with about a quart or 2 of water, let sit for 3 weeks

    This mix rocks hard core.

    Can literally watch them grow

    I agree because when society collapses and the trucks stop rolling we will see who is prepared to take care of themselves and who is going to starve.

    Yeah thats cool. They have some neat hanging basket vine tomatoes now too. Its neat to think of the amount of fruit that can be produced from a small amount of fertile soil.

    That's a joke

    You need at least 250 watts of CFL or more or 250watts of hid or more to get anything substantial

    I'd say get a 2x4 tent, a 6" inline 400cfm blower, a digital 400 watt MH/HPS BALLAST and air cooled reflector.

    Set that up, get pots of soil and let it rip.

    That's how you'd set up the light and ventilation, no,need for odor control, its just veggies

    I can give you links, but its easy to Google "complete grow tent packages"

    I cant be the only juicer that gardens on here.
    Dude! If you're limited on space, 5 gallon buckets are the only way to go. Plant upside down and hang. No staking involved, and the tomatoes are the plumpest and healthiest around. They don't bruise on the vine or rot.

    How do you plant them upside down? Sounds very interesting
