Growing food from scraps update June 2ndsteemCreated with Sketch.

in garden •  3 months ago 

I got a large piece of onion from the piece I placed in the ground after sprouting.

I am curious what's going on underground. Soon it will be time to check the carrots and maybe I'll see what the onions are doing under the dirt. Using my D-fork I can lift the bulbs out of the ground.

The Yukon Gold potatoes are doing very well. Going to check underground with these soon as well. They started flowering so probably a sign to check them.

The carrots are mostly doing well.. one of the three that survived bolted so only two we can eat if they produce underground.

Only one raddish survived and then bolted so it did not produce any more bulbs for some reason.

I planted some red potatoes in some old hay and going to see if they grow, it's called a soiless growing method. Will be interesting to see how it works out.

That's a great idea! I grew a pumpkin vine once by literally tossing an old pumpkin into compost pile of old leaves, grass, and a variety of other kitchen compost goods. It was working well enough that it attracted a variety of yard critters that had a feast on the seeds and flowers. I was a little bummed, but it gave them a meal I suppose!

Definitely interested to see how your potatoes work out.

@wwwiebe oh wow that's pretty cool, yeah if you dont cover the seeds the animals will eat them. Thanks much I'll post updates as I have them.

The potatoes are gonna be fun to produce. At least I hear from the "babushkas"

Hydroponics is the only soiless growing method of which I've heard, so this technique using hay sounds fascinating! I am definitely interested in hearing updates on this during PYPT, to know if it worked or not! I'm curious about many things, too! 😁
