Thank you to everyone who helped get the greenhouse covered with new plastic for the winter. Zach handled the responsibility of being on the rafters during the whole process of covering the greenhouse. He was a big help, and I could not have done it without him.

If you want to had some easy cub appeal to your front yard, try fruit trees. At Holt Growers, we have an apple tree and 2 plum trees in the front yard. As you can see in the video, they add much needed curb appeal to the property and provide delicious fruit, as well.

The Japanese varieties of plums grow well in the northern regions of the US and look amazing.
Each tree will produce between 300 and 500 lbs of plums when fully grown. Two different varieties are needed for cross pollination to produce fruit, but an individual tree will still produce flowers without a second tree.

Please were safety-glasses at all times.

Special thanks to Zach Holt for handling the crossbow.

Enjoy.

Thank you to Zach Holt for helping out with sifting these beds. He did almost all the heavy lifting.

Most of the invasive weeds were killed off by the ground cover and manual weeding about 5-6 weeks ago when the garlic was pulled.

DIY reception backdrop made from PVC and linen.

This backdrop is in three 10' sections with a total length of 30'. However, you can build to suit your space with some simple modifications.
The linens were pre-made and needed a stand to hang from. 1" diameter PVC was selected for its low cost, strength, and ease to work with. It took about 2 hours to design, measure, and cut the pieces and approx. 1 hour to assemble. Blue LED ice sickle lights were hung behind the linen and attached with zip ties. The three sections made it easy to move into place once assembled, and each section was secured to the others with zip ties. Small bean bags/ sand bags were used on the bottom to keep the structure from falling over.

Tools needed: tape measure, PVC cutter, marker, razor knife, pliers/ wrench
Materials needed: 1"x10' - 4
1" T - 2
1" elbow - 4
1"x1"x1/2" - 2
½" to 1" - 2
½" threaded - 2
½"x1' - 1
twist ties/ zip ties, straight pins, small sand bags/ other weight (for counter weighting the stand)

After spending a week on vacation, damage was discovered to the greenhouse caused by the tomato plants.

If you want to skip covering the damage to the greenhouse and find out more about trimming tomato plants, skip to the 8 minute mark.

Red Rock Canyon is a national park just outside Las Vegas Nevada and is managed by the Federal Bureau of Land Management.
Visitors can pay $15 per carload in order to visit the park.
The park includes numerous walking and hiking trails, rock climbing, visitors center, and a 13 mile driving trail.
I am sorry for not having any video of the visitors center and outdoors tortoise preserve.

Highlight pictures from Madame Tussaud's wax museum in Las Vegas, NV.

My wife and I had the privilege of spending our honeymoon in Las Vegas, NV, and these pictures are from the Madame Tussaud's wax museum. We enjoyed the company of Mike Aust who appears in some of the pictures. I hope you enjoy the pictures and have the opportunity to see this attraction for yourself.

While traveling to Las Vegas, I was able to get some video and snapshots of street performers performing on the famous Fremont Street Experience in historic downtown Las Vegas.
My favorite performer was the man with the steel drum.
If you're looking for a sampling of talented individuals, and don't mind the riff raff, and I suggest the Fremont Street Experience.
The three main stages and numerous circles on the pavement, there is something for everyone.

My wife and I recently took a trip to Las Vegas and had the privilege of watching a volcano erupt outside the Mirage.

Today I discuss yellow or discolored cucumbers and why that may not be a good thing. Cucumbers should be harvested when they are a good shape and dark green. If they are light green or yellow and oversized, they are most likely over ripe and will be quite bitter.

Thank you for watching. Here, we take a quick look at garlic. Ideally, garlic should be harvested when the soil is quite dry. Best allows for the garlic to start the drying process sooner and be cleaned off easier. However, due to the increased frequency in rain we've had over the spring and summer, I made the decision to harvest the garlic in damp soil. Hopefully, it doesn't have a major impact on the shelf life of this crop.

When garlic is dried, it can keep for a very long time. Garlic is also a versatile herb that can be used in a wide variety of dishes. My family and I use garlic frequently when cooking. I hope you get something out of this video and might even enjoy growing garlic yourself.

In the short video, you can see some frustration I'm having with sealing the walls in the basement. This area is in the process of being converted into a post-harvest production space and packaging area. However, not much work can be done while water is coming in from the walls. I have to keep the water out before I can turn the space into a highly productive area for Holt Growers. So far, the progress has been slow.

I used two different products on the wall. The blue was a Behr premium plus paint & primer for exterior use. It covered really well on the first coat for the bare concrete. The gray product was a color place ultra paint & primer for exterior use. Unfortunately, it did not cover well at all and left dark gray areas and other areas with almost no color whatsoever.
I was hoping to have this step in the process completed this week, but it looks like I'm going to need to get more coats put on at least make it look nice as well as keep the water out.

For the past several weeks, we have had water coming into the basement via the wall in the video. This area is going to be our post harvest and packaging area. This video shows how we repaired the holes with hydraulic cement. Later, once the cement is set up, we will seal and paint the wall and floor. Stay tuned for videos covering that coming soon.

Materials Needed:
nitrite gloves
work gloves
small bucket/tube (for mixing in)
cement trowel
water
hydraulic cement compound

Process:
1st: Thoroughly clean the area being repaired. Remove any loose debris. (not shown in video)
2nd: cutback/ enlarge holes for good adhesion (not shown in video)
3rd: mix cement in small batches
4th: tightly pack cement into holes and smooth with trowel
5th: once dry, brush off excess cement (not shown)
6th: seal with concrete sealer (not shown)

Blueberries are a great fruit to grow in the backyard. They bloom between early summer and early fall. We have 3 different varieties. Some were planted 6 years ago; others were 3 years ago. Others still were planted last year.
Blueberry bushes take 3-5 years to mature. So if your looking for a quick harvest, they may not be right for you. However, a healthy bush can live for decades and will generally produce berries every other year for life.

The 16 pullets are ready for a new home. They have outgrown the totes and are ready to move to a bigger home: under the coop. Stay until the end of the video to see a time-lapse of how I prepared this space for them.

I use baling twine as guidelines for my tomato plants to grow on. The twine is tied to the soaker hose on the ground and on a support in the roof of the greenhouse. Each tomato plants gets their own guideline. The plant is wrapped around the twine as it grows. This makes for easy harvest and trimming of the plant.

every week I try to upload a new video covering some aspect of the farm on a quarter acre of land in the middle of town. With a small flock of 24 hens living in the backyard as well as the greenhouse and garden beds, there's always something to showcase.
