I don’t put mine out till Memorial day weekend, plus I I only running 15/9 with lights in the room. I haven’t had any issues.
Right on guys thanks for the feedback! I’m gonna wait til later this coming week once we get past a cold night in the forecast
@Deez you are 100% correct. Plants do care, they care alot, when you put them outside. You put them out to early in the season and they might be takin out by frost. They also run a risk of starting to flower.
This causing them to spend a tremendous amount of time and energy ‘trying’ to revert energy. Converting it and sending it to different parts of the plant. Yes your plant can re-veg but you truly don’t want this.
If you are alittle worried about when you are putting them outside maybe wait a week. Just to make sure.
I’m in Oregon and can’t get mine outside tell about June 8th.
Really digging your veggie set up. I too grow in boxes and from seed. I have to grow in boxes because the ground here is either sandy or red clay. Here’s mine.
I’m in VT. Every outdoor grow is a race to the end. Sometimes the bud rot wins. Sometimes the temps are too low and the plant just stalls.
Beautiful garden @GrnyGrows! Wish I had space for more beds.
Planted some containers today while the weather was good. All pots got CoM lobster compost (it was loaded with earthworms), stonington blend fertilizer, langbeinite, bone meal, worm castings and perlite if needed. One pot had an unintended cover crop of clover so I chopped it up and mixed it in. Basil, red chili, cayenne, bell, cherry tomato. Wasn’t expecting the lavender in the back to come back after the winter.
I had several plants pop up from seeds already dropped to the ground by last years grow. They are excellent shape and we do not have any frost in the forecast. I am in the ground. I did put two of the seeds I started in April. We will see how they grow.
Hey buddy nice mix. Have you used greensand in there? It won’t throw off your ph or anything in your mix in a negative way and gives good minerals and helps plant vigor.
I apply it heavily to my veggie beds along with a lot of the same things you use
Also Pro-Gro is a great product that has a lot of minerals mixed in with chicken poop.
I love container growing. When we lived on our houseboat I had the whole top deck full of containers.
Have you tried adding any Bokashi to the soil? If I could suggest only one item this would be the one.
Def gonna look into this more. Fermented stuff is good and this sounds a bit along the lines of KNF style gardening.
Thanks for the tag, I will be excited to follow along. I am also thinking of growing a plant or two outdoors.
Nice! Tag me if you do.
