They are.
I use them for a fermented hot sauce. It takes 3-4 months and the Reapers only end up as about 20-25% of the total pepper mash. You definitely have to like heat to eat it, but it's nothing crazy.

Well thank you LORD! We didn't cover anything last night and seems we did not have any frost. I bet it got close though... Was 39 this morning, but dew point was in the 20's... Looks like tonight will be warmer...

Turned my beds over again and watered in the load of manure input in about a month ago.

Even if I don't grow any veggies, I have some big earthworms in there.

Wife put in squash plants this evening. Everything looked healthy that was out last night. In our new blackberry plantings, we actually have our first berry! Plants are about 6" high and one of them had bloomed a few days ago. Now there's a small berry where the bloom was... These are a thornless primo-cane variety that are supposed to make 2 crops of berries on each cane before it dies... Hope that works!

Way too early to plant anything that want's to survive up here! Most of the better nursery's have nothing out, but things like Lowes and Home Depot have everything stocked. Lot's of disappointed folks when out last freeze hits!

I'm thinking about setting up a small drip irrigation system with a 25gal barrel I have. Anyone done this before?

I have not, but have thought about it. Just make sure you elevate the barrel high enough to give enough pressure with 1/4 full. That way you should always be able to continue watering. Distance and drippers will effect this.

Ok guys here is an update on the rain barrel drip system. 20gal barrel works great until about 10gal is remaining in it. Then pressure drops to an unusable level. So I'm gonna get me a 50gal barrel and we should be in business. Once I get it all rigged up I will take pics with details.

Gonna have zucchini green bush, onion weathersford red, tomato Berkeley tie dye pink and German lunchbox, cucumber monika, spinach Monstreaux, peas Kelvadon, several lettuce types and an herb box with basil, cilantro salad burnet.
Then my outside boxes will have radish redmeat and Zalta, carrots Nantes, beets golden and red, acorn squash Gills Golden.

I'll probably do some corn outside too.

Our issue here are grasshoppers. I got an infest of white fly on my Brussels sprouts last year. But yea pest control will now be a bigger issue.

Last year I left things spaced enough that the birds would hover over the garden and pick off grass hoppers. Was cool to watch.

Started from seeds, moved plants into the dirt few days ago went smaller then usual this year and built a elevated bed instead of in the ground. 4x8 . Ran out of room but I planted it like I usually do in rows and was told in a box you don't have to and shove those plants together. Considering making another box as I have alot of plants left.

Anyone in Tomball area want to swap I have greenbeans squash, watermelon, cantaloupe, multiple color bell peppers, jalapeno, habanero, cucumbers, okra, corn and a few others I can't think of

Couple pics of my setup. Been working hard last couple days rebuilding and expanding our garden. Redid the dutch bucket setup, added NFT trays and build the 3 raised bed boxes for the greenhouse. Tilled outside for the watermelons and corn. Last year was our first year gardening and we just did hydroponic lettuce and tomatoes.

I guess I'm gonna have to build a fence onto each of my raised boxes. My little girl's pup thinks they are his play boxes to dig and lay in. My plants we started a while back are about ready to go out into the beds but I know he is gonna destroy them all. Anything that will repel him spray wise? Thinking a small removable fence will be my best bet

So far so good down here. When I can keep the squirrels at bay we get a few strawberries each day. Green beans are looking good and we should have our first harvest of them in a couple weeks. Yellow squash is putting on lots but we're fighting with blossom-end-rot right now so I've added calcium to the soil via crushed egg shells. Tomatoes are covered in flowers and the companion plants are helpful. Zucchini has veggies on it, cucumbers are putting on, 50 onions have sprouted (I probably planted too many) and we have potato plants sprouting.


If this continues we'll finally be able to eat produce out of our yard instead of buying it at the store.

Richard.

Was finally able to turn over the rest of the garden patch yesterday evening and plow 3 rows for my wife to put in more stuff... If we can get the time, I'll row the rest of it up so she can plant her peas n corn.
Berries around the place are going nuts! Already gettin quite a few red ones. Barring a late frost, there's gonna be some good pickin' this year... Hope to put some in the freezer for late season berry cobbler!!

How long does it take for potatoes to sprout? Put them in about 2 weeks ago and I'm nervous First time growing potatoes. All I've ever done is transplant store bought plants so I never had to wait for anything to come rip.

Justin, you should be seeing sprouts by now. Maybe you planted them too deep and it will take a little longer... If the ground was not and is not overly wet, they should come up. If your slips had good growing eyes on 'em, they'll be popping through any day now. If you want to check, scratch down and look at one or two...

Lemon tree is covered up with little fruit bulbs and flowers. Serrano started flowering and zucchini and tomatoes seem to be happy right now. Pole beans aren't moving much.

Did an experiment and added compost from our home bin that has been cooking for a little over a year, used a bag or store bought on the other side. Home grown compost is having better results already and it's only been 2 weeks.

Also have a red bus and a pecan sapling that are coming back to life

Thanks. The seed potatoes were already sprouting a bit so hopefully they'll come up soon. Did some in growing bags and some in a raised bed. If i don't see anything by the weekend I'll carefully dig down a bit.

I read the soil should be moist but not wet. That sound right?

I guess my potatoes heard me talking about them. Went out when I got home and they're coming up.

Doing a few pots on the porch with tomatoes, jalapeņo, cilantro, mint, and strawberries.

The rest of the main garden goes in next week.

Gotta get the tiller running

That's perfect!

As the plant tops get bigger, keep adding dirt to cover the stems and lower leaves... Old folks used to call it "hillin' the 'taters).

Mrs has sprouts coming up in her starter pots, very exciting.

She just put a tomato plant into the planter.

We got the new beds assembled, and filled with soil. She is going to add her amendments (lava sand, molasses, mulch, etc) and have it ready for the seedlings to be planted in a week or two.

We've got potatoes and onions coming up and looking good! Only problem is we have an armadillo that's showing up erratically at night and digging up the base of the plants. I've been watching for him but have only got him on the game camera in the middle of the night.

Anybody got advice? I've read it's hard to trap them.

You can use a live trap to catch them, but it's not nearly as easy as trapping racoons. They won't come to bait, so it's important to know the armadillos path of travel. Set the trap along it's normal path and setup some sort of funnel in front of the trap. I've used boards, wire, or even cinder blocks I had laying around.

That's probably what I will have to. He seems to being coming under the fence in the same place so it should be easy to funnel him.

Got the Mantis tiller going... did a little weeding for the wife... Two rows pretty much done. Rest is tilled again. If we don't get too much rain Friday, I'll row it up and get the rest of her stuff planted this weekend... Mostly peas/corn, but I think she's got more maters, squash, cucumbers, and maybe cantaloupes, but not sure what all... Already having an issue with some kind of bug cutting the leaves off the pepper plants...

Mrs likes to grow from seed, so the starter pots are doing their magic.

The tomato pot is self watering. Very cool.

The beds are assembled, weed guard fabric added, filled with soil and amendments added. I suspect she will start to move over some seedlings in the next week or so. The neat thing about those atarter pots, is that you just bury the pot and all, it is made from cow poo.

They're really neat. http://www.cowpots.com
