Garden on the go is ready

Hi all, finally got internet , very slow so no pictures yet but just to let you know the garden is traveling well, the tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers seem to be growing really well and blooming but the radishes,lettuce and carrots have really slowed down. May be because these squares are moved inside the trailer when we travel so they don't get as much sun and the last few stops have had quite a bit of shade. We haven't had any trouble with watering when we stop and the garden doesn't dry out so that is good. Was sure glad we had the cover for the main part one night in North Carolina as a wind and rain storm came up suddenly and then hailed, I got wet going out to close the cover but only lost a couple leaves on the lettuce. Will try to upload pictures and more info as we go, now in Gettysburg,PA.

Garden on the go is ready

Hi all, We made our first travel day with no problems, brought in the two side boxes(because of the signal lights) and lowered the cover on the rest and the plants and checked often with no problems from the wind. Dave thinks that the garden is close enough to the back to be out of most of the downdaft. The carrots are now coming up and the peas are doing good. The radishes are growing nice and the tomatoes look ready to bloom. Tomorrow we go to Savannah,Ga so another travel day. Will let you know how things are going as we travel along. So far all is well. Sure hope youall are having as much fun as we are with this sfg. It gets lots of attention and so we have been promoting sfg to all in the campgrounds and stops that we make. More soon.

Yup, you are righ, the truck is 30" ahead of the 5th wheel so exhaust should not be a problem.

Garden on the go is ready

I am so pleased with the interest in my new try at SFG - garden on the go. I'm not sure we would be close to the Gypsy gathering but sure would show up if we could, met Nick & Terry at an Escapade when we first started full time Rving. Oh just a couple updates so far, 1. I am goint to attempt to put a picture here of the cage down over the plants for when we travel as it is now(We have plans if this doesn't work) and will check it frequently the first couple days out. I seem to have problems whenever I try to post pictures but maybe if I keep trying, I'll get it yet. 2. I cannot believe how fast seeds are sprouting down here in Florida, ts only been 3-4 days and I see radishes, lettuce and my new special small cucumbers coming up already and the transplants seem to be doing well. I love MM soil, it is so easy to watch conditions. Will keep you updated as we go. Chow for now.hayjude - Search Img_4314

Garden on the go is ready

We will keep in mind the plexiglass but I was afraid the plants would cook in the hot sun & high temps when we leave, maybe we will try some of each. I sure would like to have the cover difuse the wind enough, we'll see. Thanks for all the encouragement.

Garden on the go is ready

We are hoping that the top and ends of the cover(made from shop light grids) will be enough to keep the wind off and still let enough air in to keep from cooking the plants and enough sunlight to let them grow. We will stop and check it often on the road and can cover the grids with plastic or tarps if necessary. This is all new, so will let you know after we take off next Sunday.

Garden on the go is ready

We finally found the different composts and mixed up MM yesterday after Dave finished building my 2'x7' traveling garden for the back of our 5th wheel. He also built a screened cover for the 2'x5' section that is attached to the bike rack off the rear hitch of the trailer. The 1'x2' boxes on the end have to be moveable to take off when we travel so the tail lights will show. I planted the seeds and tansplaned the tomatoes and peppers that I started in Texas in April We will leave northern Florida next Sunday and head up the East coast to Maine and then across to Minnesota(used to be home) by August so we can fly our 8 year old granddaughter back to Florida for school. I am excted about this new garden adventure and should have internet at least 1 a week so will try to keep you updated on the experiment. Keeping my fingers crossed for garden goodies along the trai. Oh I hope I am posting a picture, this is my first try. Happy trails & good gardening..hayjude - Search Img_4312

Now we have the sfg boxs built on the back of the 5th wheel and ready to make Mel's mix but can't find 5 diferent kinds of compost. Anyone know where to look, have checked Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot but no luck. Next year I will have my own going but really need help now.

Hello from a traveling gardener

Hi, I joined back in April and have been busy planning howto make a traveling garden on the back of our 5th. wheel rv. This will be a new experience and I am sure a lot of learning, not sure how things will grow.We are in N. Florida right now and will head up the East coast all the way to Maine and across to Minnesota before summer/fall is over. So anxious to learn about all the growing seasonsand try my hand at this.
