The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
How much corn did you get, and how much did you eat fresh?
Better try it indoors, Daniel.
Chris, it sounds like fun, seeing what ginger will do. I've been checking out more articles and videos on growing it, and I may have planted mine too deep.
Daniel, I've been adding sulfur to my garden the last 4 years, and it appears to help acidify it. I'm also adding more organic matter.
When I lived 30 miles south of here, I had alkaline soil, and just adding a lot of organic matter made it neutral, so I have hopes that I can do better than my county extension agent indicated.
Room temperature Spud, that was about 26°C. or 80°F. in August. I kept it rather damp - when I thought of it.
Chris, how warm do you keep your ginger? I read that they are a tropical plant, and so like warmth, as well as moist air.
My windowsill gingerroot grew fantastic last year, and even almost flowered. I gave it a winter rest, repotted in spring, and waited............................................................... till August, when suddenly leaves appeared and now it is almost a metre tall. I cannot guess what it will do next.
Thanks Chris. I won't throw it out as early as I planned.
Sometimes you have to wait a long time before that gingerroot grows. I still don't understand what clock it uses.
Today, I finished the area I'm going to plant watermelon in next year. I had previously made berms of soil, sand, compost, and uncomposted organic mater.
I made them on the south side of the house where the melons will not get any early morning sun, but then will get a double dose in late morning until evening, because of the reflection from the white wall of the house.
Today, I put manure and compost on top of the berms and soaker hoses on top of that.
