A lot of people have trouble with seed starting and would like to use store bought plants. So I tried a few store bought Rutgers tomatoes in a dutch bucket setup to see how they'd do. The results were pretty good.

Sieva Butter Beans - An Excellent Pole Bean
I like to eat butter beans, but I don't like the back breaking chore of picking them. So the answer was to find a pole butter bean, something that would climb a string and allow us to pick them while standing. We found some Sieva Butter Bean seed online and planted them in the greenhouse as a test. These things are amazing. They are very productive, excellent eating, and they made beans even thru 100+ degree heat. If you get a chance, give them a try.

Hybrid Volunteer Tomatoes - Yes, You Can Save Hybrid Seeds
When it comes to seed saving, people generally want an heirloom or open pollinated variety. The reason is simple, you want to have some idea of what you're going to get at harvest time. But it is also possible to save seed from hybrids and use them. You won't know for sure what the outcome will be, but more than likely you'll be able to harvest something from your efforts. In this video, we have a bunch of volunteer tomatoes growing where I've grown Big Beef a few times. The size and shape of the tomatoes was different from Big Beef. However, they still produced plenty of tomatoes.

Buying Premixed Water Soluble Fertilizers
I have received a lot of questions in regard to buying the 4-18-38 fertilizer already mixed with Calcium Nitrate and Epsom salt. Is it the same product that I use? What is my opinion of it? I'll tell you this.... I do NOT recommend mixing the 3 ingredients and storing them for any length of time. It is much wiser to mix them as needed, or mix them with water.

Sawdust in the Garden - Not a Good Idea

Failed Again - Organic Hydroponic Fertilizer Experiment
I'm trying an organic fertilizer being developed by a friend of mine. This time, it's a more concentrated product and I felt much more confident about the results. However, when using it in a hydroponic setup like I did the first time, I was disappointed at the results. Like most new ventures, this fertilizer is a work in progress. So I'll be waiting for a revised version to give it another try.

Our Best Garden Pea
I've tried to grow early garden peas for several years without much success. So this year, we planted 3 different varieties ; Thomas Laxton, Little Marvel, and an improved Thomas Laxton called Progress No. 9. In a side by side test, we had a clear winner and we will be growing that variety in the future. And to learn the best way to can the peas, here is Susan's video:

Greenhouse Beets
It was a good year for beets in the greenhouse. They get planted in raised beds and always seem to do well. This year we planted 2 varieties, Detroit Red and Pacemaker. Both were similar in size. To store beets long term, an easy way is to can them for Pickled Beets. If you want to know how to can them, here is Susan's video:

Dutch Bucket Tomatoes - Pruning, Stringing, and Pollinating
The Big Beef tomatoes are off to a great start. It's time to prune the early suckers and do some pollinating. And since these are going to be grown single stem, they need to be put on strings using the trellis clips. Here is the link to Susan's video showing how this was all set up :

Super Italian Paste Tomato Update
Susan's Super Italian Paste Tomatoes are kicking in high gear and it's time to do a little maintenance. We're removing some of the smaller suckers and trimming off the lower leaves that are making contact with the soil. This is a good way to lessen the likelihood of fungal diseases. Also, we're putting the cages around them. Aside from keeping them watered and maybe a quick side dressing in a few weeks, they should be good to go for awhile.

Seed Starting Help - Get Some Light
One of the biggest problems people are having with starting their own seeds is leggy seedlings. The cure is really quite simple.

Do this, and your seedlings will develop much stronger stems and you'll have much better results in the garden.

Planting Pecan Trees
When planning for the future, you have to start somewhere. So today we planted a couple of pecan trees. It will be several years before we get any pecans to make a pie. In the meantime, we'll enjoy watching them grow and become nice shade trees.
