Container Gardening Season 1 – Week 5: Transplanting Mania

This week we transplanted the tomatoes and peppers into bigger pots and split up some of our crowded, wilting cucumbers.

Check out Tiffany’s post on her blog: Here is a list of everything we’re growing (or trying to grow): – Cherry Tomatoes – Zucchini – Squash – Green Onions – Basil – Peppers – Lettuce – Green Beans – Cucumbers – Pumpkin (I know, I’m skeptical too)

Using Cinder Blocks to Grow Beans: Growing and Harvesting

Started with 10 seeds and it multiplied to many! Very simple way to grow beans and as always, harvesting what I grow is fun! As a container, I used cinder blocks, added a mixture of top soil and organic compost, water them, then watch them grow! From purple flowers to green small pods that eventually transformed into beautiful yellow bean pods! The harvesting video was made 6 days ago and today I made my second harvest! I absolutely love it!

Allotment Diary : Growing Vegetables How to Grow / Transplant Leeks.

Just a quick video showing how I go about the procedure of transplanting my leek plants into their final growing positions in the allotment. Leek plants are about ready to transplant when they are about 12″ tall and pencil thickness but as It’s been raining for the last fortnight here mine have grown a bit bigger. Then simply make planting holes anywhere from 6-9″ deep with a big dibber about 2″ wide. Space the holes from 9″ apart in the row and the rows 12″ apart or more The depth of the hole determines the length of white leek stem you’ll get as this will be growing underground,out of the sunlight and this “Blanches” the stalk turning it white. Then separate each leak plant and simply drop one plant into each hole. Then carefully fill the hole with water to wash a little soil over the roots. Don’t be tempted to fill the hole with soil or you’ll end up with soil between the leaves and end up with gritty leeks when it comes time to harvest them. That’s about it really.
