Heres some cauliflower I am growing. It is a great climate for cauliflower here in Oregon. These were started last fall and overwintered and are just now resuming growth. I Love cauliflower it is an amazing plant these will explode with growth soon. I just side dressed. To get a 10 or 12 pound cauliflower head they have to be started in the fall and overwintered like this. So these plants are 7 months old. This is a blend of different types of cauliflower so i will have cauliflower for perhaps a period of about 2 months. Most will be pure white but occasionaly a purple shows up. sometimes so dark its almost black.

Lightbulb Protecting my Fruit Trees



Last year I planted about 15 fruit trees, apples pears & plums.

I was busy working on erosion stuff & more focussed on fine sands than on building bigger better fences.

So I watered the fruit trees every single day when it got hot, and the deer stripped every single leaf off, about once a week. All summer long.

I was really pleased that about 2/3 of the non-Jonathan's made it and started putting out shoots a few weeks ago. All the Jonathan's died.

I told myself that the roots were growing even if the tops were being stunted.

Anyway, now I'm putting my energy into making their grow space deer resistant and pig resistant. One of my neighbors leaves his fence gate open and his pigs run around the country road like moving speed bumps. Last time this happened they got into another neighbor's garden. I was going to wire 1 inch diameter tree branches on the bottom area.



I want the chickens to be able to get to the tree ... very symbiotic. They eat worms and poop more fertilizer.

I think if I give them as much TLC this year as I gave my outdoor Pot plants last year, they will do well.



I never got around to posting pics of my 2017 grow. There was a week of rain in August so I put some 6 mil film over the plants and gave them about 4 pounds of CO2 a day, moving in that wind tunnel at about 3 miles per hour.

They kind of seemed to like that.

That nearest plant with the bud pressing into the roof, is a Bay Dream x Apollo 11.

Have a fewnfruit trees myself. Mostly dwarf and semi dwarf rootstock peaches, necectarines and a few apples. Wish I had room for more.

Yeah I noticed if I gave other things I grow around here just have as much attention as a pot plant it does extremely well.

Has anyone planted Artichokes before? Hopefully Massachusetts won't be too far north for them. I started them indoors and transplanted them today along with 2 varieties potatoes, parsnips, carrots, pole beans and basil. Keeping it simple this year.

I was doing cleanup this weekend and must have missed the poison ivy. Its all over my face. Can't remember the last time I've had it this bad.

Getting to be that time of year. Have my starts in the greenhouse. Cold nights, last night 36 so it's open during the day and heat at night.

Here's some squash, cukes, and tomatoes.

Artichokes do good in my area and especially like the cool coastal towns. Poison I vy doesnt affect me fortunately.

Lester Beans looks like he is going to have alot of vegetables this year. they look healthy.

I threw down some used super soil from last year made from mostly promix and there are NO weeds growing in that area, while the organic compost section, weeds are popping up like crazy! I'm going to assume its because the promix is lacking organic material?
