Looking for an exotic pepper

1/13/2021, 8:36 pm by bgardner

One of the things I specialize in is Sichuan cooking. Most dishes call for exotic ingredients that you have to mail order, which is fine, but one of them is something I would like to try growing. It's a hot pepper called er jing tiao, in Chinese: (二荆条). It has medium heat, grows rather long (around a foot), is deep red, and is an essential ingredient for authentic food from Sichuan. I …

mega-sized SFG?

1/16/2021, 1:26 am by dalepres

I'm wondering if anyone has seen or done any large-scale SFG.  All my life I dreamed of having a 1/4 acre garden providing all the vegetables my family of five could eat including canning for winter and spring.  Now, by the time I actually  have that much room for gardening available, and time to work with it, the kids are grown and I'm close to retirement and don't really need that much even …

question about nursery vegetable pots

12/6/2020, 2:42 pm by stevenfstein

Good afternoon. My first year coming up with SFG and I have a question of succession planting. Might try some seeds, never done that before, but I usually buy already started vegetable plants in those small black plastic containers. My problem is that planting say 16 or something all ripen at the same time. Would like to plant some than a week or so later plant some more and so on. Problem is …

I've been wanting to compost for a long time, but it seems so complicated and confusing, and I'm a procrastinator, so I've never done it. I recently learned about a system called Bokashi, and you ferment the food in buckets, and then add it to the compost pile, or dig a hole where you want to plant and cover it, and after a few weeks you have compost. It seems easy enough. You just toss in …

multiple varieties of tomatoes on trellis?

11/24/2020, 11:26 am by stevenfstein

Have been growing vegetables for a number of years but this year will try square foot. In the past I have set up a trellis and planted one single tomato plant for each one and just let it grow, weaving it between horizontal string for support. This year I plan on using vertical twine with tomato clips and just keeping the main stalk, pruning out the suckers. Couple of questions. Trellis will be 6 …

Ground Cherries

6/9/2020, 6:24 pm by Emily49

I started reading more about ground cherries and the Tomatilla plant I bought.  (Thank you for the citizen scientist project website) I read that some varieties do not produce fruit on their own, so I called my nursery because there wasn't any information on the tag.  My plant ID app said it was a Large Leaf Tomatilla, but I don't totally trust that AI yet.  The nursery is still waiting for …
