High Altitude, Staged, Container Gardening Part 2!

Hi Everyone,

I thought it would be a good time to do an update to my first container gardening video.

Things are going great. I am very proud to have some small plants going strong, and it is not even April yet (this is a big deal at 9000 ft)!

I still bring my container in at night, and, with the plastic clear cover, it is basically a mini green house all day.   It works so well! I have started to ‘harden’ the plants a little by taking the cover off for a few hours while still in the sunlight in the afternoon.

Today was a little heart breaking for me because I had to pull a bunch of these little beauties for spacing purposes. It was hard to do for me, but is a necessary evil in the end (I feel like I went a little wild sowing).

Check it out!

The carrots have taken almost a week longer than expected, but they are coming up. I will be making another container essentially exactly like this one in the next few days. The idea is to keep the supply of veggies coming from the dirt to our plates.

It’s ironic, all three of us here are licking a popsicle for sore throat, and there is a garden going!

Cheers!

Willie

 

PS.

It may seem at times like you have ‘done it all’ but there are many new crafts and lost skills out there for all of us! This is my mission!
