Checking in to say Happy late new year, and chat about plans for the year in the garden!
Sorry for some of the sound, as my mic was lower and my hands clapped a few times covering my words. So I said CHICKENS! I am getting chickens! :)

This is a video about growing tomatoes in a grow bag setup. This the way I do grow tomatoes in grow bags. I am using a drying rack for support for these tomatoes. The Thumbnail is what they currently look like! They are huge now!!

This video is about 2 months late! Many apologies!! I needed to edit this one, due to interruptions and just tidy it up in general! I tried one application and sort of worked but then it had the watermark... I did look at purchasing that software but their charging scheme was odd. I finally thought I'll take a look at iMovie... and here we are! :)

Just a quick chat about soil (potting, multipurpose compost, etc) and methods of using cut-off vegetables and ensure planting. This wasn't planned, but thought I would get my thoughts out there to help others, as i was planting out my cut-off leeks!

I mentioned Carrots: Companion planting with carrots: good with salad greens, beans and peas - also radish and onions. I think I also read somewhere once they are quite good with squash as pest control. So Carrot tops may be good planting with those. Or use that list planing out non-cut-top carrots! :)

Container growing potatoes in small spaces is easy! Create your own potato project; you don't even need many seed or starter potatoes. Starter potatoes can include just potatoes you have that have started to sprout eyes.
You will need stackable plastic pots, a sharp knife/razor, some compost and a seed potato or two. (in this set up, depending on size, you don't need more than 4. 2 to 3 is perfect! On one example, I have a large baked potato sized potato that has sprouted... That can be by itself in a grow bag container or pot.

Today I will show you various ways to use your milk jugs in gardening!
Items i did not cover: you could also make a bird feeder (may work better with US Milk jugs). Feel Free to share any other ways you have used milk jugs for any of those who are interested!

Addendum: I meant to say small NAIL not Needle... and a big NEEDLE.

Welcome back! Begin thinking and planning your garden! Think about the things you want to grow; think about the space you have available for growing. Do your research on what types of plants vs your space you will grow. This is part 1, due to my cat interrupting my feed! So Part 2 will shortly follow!
