Hardening Off Seedlings

Hardening Off Seedlings

If you’re like me, you’ll eagerly await the day you can transplant your seedlings that you have started in your Seedling Starter Kit outdoors. But for best results, you should introduce your plants to the outside world gradually. This is a process called “hardening off seedlings.”

When you start seedlings indoors, they know only the stable, safe conditions of your home, where they enjoy consistent temperature, Continue reading

What Should I Buy A Tower Garden by Backyard Tower Garden

Earth Day 2016

Today is Earth Day. Today is the day we celebrate our relationship with Mother Earth. Today we live in a world that is full of toxins. They are created by today’s high tech society and its dependence on chemicals. In our daily activates we are using products that are chemical based. These chemicals are in the air, in the water, in the soil, in our food, in nearly everything product or tool that we use.

More than ever it is important for us to eat a healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables. Buying organic is so important. It is the way that you will get the least amount of toxins into your body from your food. You can help yourself to become healthier by growing your own food in an aeroponic growing system that has no soil and uses a all natural plant food that consists of natural earth minerals and elements.

This growing system uses only 10% of the land space and only 10% of the water that traditional soil based growing systems use. It also produces ready to harvest food 30% faster according to a study done by the University of Mississippi.

In our house we pick fresh greens for our smoothies every morning year round. Our aeroponic growing system will grow outdoors when the weather permits. When the cold of winter comes we move it inside with grow lights and continue to grow fresh vegetables all year long.  Picking your food and eating it within minutes of harvesting; it doesn’t get any better than this.

What is this aeroponic growing system that lets you grow your own food year round, you are asking? It is the Tower Garden by Juice Plus. It’s a total self contained urban food growing machine! If you can spin a yard stick around on the floor than you have room for a Tower Garden. To learn more just CLICK HERE.

Avoiding Transplant Shock in Seedlings

Avoiding Transplant Shock in Seedlings

This is my innovative way of avoiding transplant shock in my seedling starter plants. After a week of increasing sun exposure by placing them outside in their propagation trays for increased periods each day, I planted them today.

The the weather now is a bit cooler and a bit overcast. Tomorrow should be cooler too. I used my wire tomato cage laid on its side to support my row cover cloth which I draped over the tomato cage.

I used T shaped garden spikes to secure the row cloth to the ground. Perfect way to help the plants grow more roots while they adjust to the new soil. The roots need to adjust a few days before the hotter days cause more leaf growth. This should give you some ideas about what you can do to avoid transplant shock to your starter plants.
