Hi all. Here are my two girls for the season. This is actually my first time growing in the ground, which is exciting. Wish I had a third plant but it’s probably too late. I received these two plants from a good friend a week ago and put them in to my raised bed.
I planted with one bag of Ocean Forest for each plant. I dug deep enough so that I could get some ocean forest under the 3 gallon plants. No supplements in the soil, maybe next time.
Please ignore the irrigation mess that’s from a previous occupant and not being used. I’m hand watering. So far I am watering with half tap and half collected rain water. About a gallon per plant every other day. It may not rain again for this grow and I will run out of rain water soon so it may be all tap pretty soon.
Right now the plants are only getting direct sun between 10am and 3pm but that should improve as the sun moves south.
Wondering it I should buy something to feed them with. I was looking at some organic kellogs fish and kelp at home depot but wasn’t sure if it would do much good. Im looking for bang for buck because I don’t have a ton to invest in these ladies besides TLC.
Anyways, I’ve been gone awhile, I used to have an account here but can’t find it. Glad to be back.
