Thought it might be interesting to share a little bit about what we do and what not. I also have a question about bell peppers.
Last year some of the bell peppers had soft spot, from what I looked into this is due to a lack of calcium in the soil. Well, everything that didn't make it went back into the composter for this year. I got a hold of a little pulverized limestone to add but was told this takes a long time to break into the soil?
Garden at home is only about 20' x 30'. This year I'll have some cauliflower, snap peas, 1 row of peppers (green, cherry & unidentified hot from a friend at work, a few watermelon & cantaloupe, a row of cucumbers and 2 rows assorted lettuce. Have to rethink the rhubarb because the two plants I had went right to seed then crapped out. Maybe their spot needs more sun.
Garden at camp is, well a collection of projects. Got a 10' x 20' for a few greens. Just recently planted 10 wild/crab apple, two cherry, and about a dozen highbush blueberry. Some areas the soil there is slightly acidic 5-6ph. Also trying to take advantage of a few new clearings from last years logging. Also the ground is carpeted with roots and shale rock. I friend of mine is a welder had him make a custom breaker bar with a stainless tip, I use that to bust up the planting spots. That thing also was the jazz for digging post holes for the solar array. For the trees at least, it took about two hours a spot no joke. Then once I can fix up the trails I can make use of the 885N and expand the wildlife plots a bit. Those amount to about 1.5 acres mostly a clover & chicory mix. Going for another acre. Can make use of a Tecumseh powered 5hp rear tine. Good times.
