I am an avid vegetable gardener as well as a Cannabis grower. Last year I had some really nice tomatoes but this year, I am not going to be gone half the year so I can work on my garden more. I am going to have 4-6 20 gallon fabric bags to grow tomato’s in. I have a mixture of composted mushroom mix, organic potting soil and peat.
Have already got the pots, soil mixes and the fertilizer (10-10-10) to which I will add some 5-1-1 fish fertilizer for extra nitrogen. Cal/Mag is added from the time I see flowers unless I see need for it earlier. It stops the bigger tomatoes from splitting when they get close to harvest. I do not pH my water but do check it if i see signs of nitrogen deficiency or any other problems.
My tomato plants are already in one gallon pots inside and are getting anxious to start stretching and growing. Have already grown in the pots (only in there for a few days). I plan on planting them in about 4 weeks when we return from our visit to AZ. Should be eating tomatoes by May 30th.
Mykos (microrhizae) is added to the soil hole of all plants being transplanted. Seeds were also given some. Akos (nitrogen fixing bacteria) will also be added to the soil.
We are also going to have Green Beans, Okra, Rhubarb (for pies), Green and Red Peppers, Onions, Garlic (to stop pests from coming into the garden, works well), Eggplant, Squash and last but not least Strawberries and Blueberries.
Have already gotten the strawberries thinned out and soil organics added. Have the beds ready for additional soil that I add a little at a time. I can’t lift or exert much anymore.
I do not even eat tomatoes until they are in season. The ones they sell in the stores are TERRIBLE ! They taste like cardboard!
Anyone else addicted to the taste of homegrown veggies?
