Recycle Survival garden update – July 20, 2010 – prepper container gardening

Update on the container garden. The plants got plenty of rain water this week and I used collected rain run off as well, so they are doing better. The tomatoes are finally getting bigger and putting on fruit. I’m having a problem with squash bugs though so I don’t think I will get any squash variety veggies this time. Peas and beans are starting to grow. I’m seeing a few more sprouts. Tire potatoes are doing well but one isn’t growing. Cucumbers are starting to vine nice and I have baby cucs putting on. See my pickles video if you haven’t seen it yet. Watermelon and honey dew are doing well. White runners didn’t grow as well as I had planned. I figure on the beans, even if they don’t produce a big crop, I can save the seeds for next year as they are heirloom organic. be back next week with another update. If this video has been a blessing to you, please consider placing a small order in my AVON store: www.youravon.com

    Using cardboard boxes for beans. Great idea. I’m going to try that. The deer ate all our bean plants, but this may be the answer to it. The Deer off and electric fence did not work. The neighbors all lost their beans, too.
    Watch for blossom rot on tomatoes. Some Epsom salt helps for blossom rot.

    They look like they need water, tomatoes are 90% water they need moist soil all the time, not wet but moist

    Rain water doesn’t have all the nasty poisonous chemicals we have in our normal drinking water. Shows you what is in our water is not so healthy for us.

    I heard canola oil is a good bug repellent. Good luck!

    @Brand0n777 “” dude to whats in the water.”" * due.

    Heres a tip: When rain water isnt available, and you have to use water from the garden hose, dont get water from the hose on the leaves of the tomato plants. For some reason it slows their growth, dude to whats in the water.
