Good morning garden, how's it growing?
The process of starting this garden has been a long one! The spring weather was less than accommodating and we got off to a very slow start. But a little sunshine goes a long way! Now we are seeing...
giant bean poles,
rows of radishes,
and climbing cucumbers.
My grandfather-in-law taught me to train them up this way:
Makes for longer cukes and prevents them from getting curvy. Space saving too!
Here is the secret fertilizer recipe I promised- also courtesy of my g'pa-in- law.
4 oz baby shampoo
12 oz of beer (you should probably take a little swig before you dump it in :)
1/2 cup of molasses
3 T Miracle Grow
Mix all these ingredients in the bottom of a 5 gal bucket, then fill the bucket with water to the top. Stir it up and pour it over your plants (example: about 1 gal per tomato plant). Let it soak into the ground and then water as usual. I use this mixture about every 2 weeks.
Here's to the fruits of our labors!
