Title: Gardening
Post by: Mad Max on April 13, 2017, 12:30:23 PM
Seeing as there was some cool feedback in the beekeeping thread, I figured I'd throw a gardening one in the mix.
Here's my problem if anyone can help.

I want to replant a berry bush elsewhere in the garden, but the plot where I started to dig unearthed a thick layer of charcoal pebbles.
Basically there's about a foot of earth and then at least two or three feet of charcoal. I stopped digging when I realized I'd reached a layer rather than a random patch.

I'm wondering if I can just plant the bush there and the thing will still grow?
I know you can add charcoal to your soil to improve the nutrient absorption of the plants, but this looks like it might be a bit extreme...

Once, I tried to plant some sunflowers. They grew to be kinda ugly, then they withered and died. Now I don't even think about it, since it's the Easter Bunny's yard now... and I'm sure he'd love to chomp on my sunflowers. I like my bunny better than any flower, though.

i'm not for sure, mad max. maybe you could hollow out enough room for your berry's roots and buy a bag of dirt w/ nutrients and hope it doesn't branch out into no man's land?
i had some nice sunflowers last yr for my bees and cockblocking squirrels would climb up and behead them. decapitate and bring the flower home to squirrel's lair to mow down. i got wise though and sprayed the stalks w/ hot pepper/garlic water but you've gotta be on it after a rainfall.
my perennials are starting to come back to life.

Been in the que to get a small gardening plot (about 100 square meters). Almost had one now in April but some people before me in the que got it. Was hoping to get bees on there but that seems against the rules so Im just gonna grow veggies there.

Was thinking now in the start or based on how limited my time is Id start with a wide range of berries. Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and some other stuff. Just to get something kicking that could handle itself mostly by themselves.

Later maybe carrots, grapes, potatoes, rhubarb, wild garlic, and more stuff.

Surely you could spend an afternoon foraging for berries and keep the plot for things that are harder to find in the wild.

I've been reverting the yard back to nature w a native plant garden, which around here includes, oaks, sage, buckwheat, etc. The plan is to attract birds and wildlife and to feel like I'm camping when I chill in the yard. Also no money spent on water, lawn mower, poisons, any of that suburbanite bullshit.

I know you can add charcoal to your soil to improve the nutrient absorption of the plants, but this looks like it might be a bit extreme...

Charcoal makes the soil alkaline so you've got to figure out if your native soil is alkaline or acidic, and if berries you want to plant like alkaline or acidic soil. I'm in the desert southwest so our soil and water are both alkaline. To grow something like berries I'd have to add a bunch of compost and maybe something like fish meal to bring down the soil ph. Using collected rainwater instead of tap water helps out too.

Do you have a good garden shop nearby? If so maybe go chat up the workers about your situation and see if they can recommend a good soil mix.

Ha ha! Thanks for the feedback guys.
I'm a complete gardening novice but our house has one so I think it's about time to learn.
I guess I'm going to have to check the soil ph levels.
It's a red currant bush I'm thinking of moving.

Definitely a good idea to capture that rainwater - that's the only stuff I like to use in my compost bin, so that the chlorine and fluoride of tap water aren't in there to kill the beneficial bugs. Also, a little pee in your compost bin is the secret to higher temps. Shredding junk mail is a great way to get your browns, but no glossy stuff. Banana peels and coffee grounds straight on top of your dirt.

Rhubarb is tight because it's hella hardy and a perennial

(http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj300/cpmorgan5000/Rhubarb_1.jpg)

Garlic is tight because in norther climes you plant it in the late fall - I've also had some organic stuff that sprouted on my counter, popped that in the ground, and in about a week I had a shoot coming up - this was during the spring.

and 11 marijuana plants i had indoors. gardening ain't skating but it's still a big part of my spring-summer. gonna try watermelon later in the year, excited about that!

i don't know where else to throw this but i like making labels more than i like the act of making jelly. they're all one offs but people like this one. fun fact, the jam is actually 90% mulberry but strawberry is more picturesque. i dig the hell out of canning and picking fruit, i just don't like boiling it in sugar so much. i tried store bought pectin but i prefer lemon zest X juice X apple skin.
my blueberries are green but i found some ripe wild ones today. gonna cook em into the next batch.

perhaps even more swell b/c it turns out none of the viney, large-leaf, huge-yellow-flower-havin plants we have growin in the backyard are actually pumpkins - they look almost identical, but they turned out to be zucchini and two different kind of squashes - all volunteers from seeds from our neighbor's garden last year.
oh well, I had some pretty good zucchini bread yesterday

Your planter boxes look really smart. good job, man

so i've had some wins/losses gardening this yr. weeded a bunch of asparagus cause i didn't recognize them, squirrels, rabbits, skunk and a whistlepig have been eating my greens and squash leaves before they can develop but i've had successes too. my blackberries i propagated from clippings at a public park are starting to have little red berries. got some good cherries, first yr of them.
birds in my blueberry net, aaack!
tomatoes and weed looking good.
so this morning i woke up and foraged my neighborhood, wild blueberries and mulberries i can put in jam.

i've got almost 30 1/2 lb jars of jam to last the winter so now i'm doing other stuff w/ fruit. strawberries are still turning but seem to have slowed down. tomato plants coming in strong. cushaw [holler squash] is finally turning the tide against rabbits aka getting too big to get chewed on.

My garden is getting fuckin pounded by rediculous weather this year, I'm surprised everything is doing ok.

It's hot and humid for two days, then it storms/heavy winds for 2-3 days, one you day, then rinse repeat.

Looks more like a mudpit than a garden.

My tomatoes and peppers are fuckin Killin it though so I'm stoked on that!

I don't plant any berries because we have local spots to pick from which is very convenient and nice.

Of course rhubarb is still going strong because nothing can fuck that shit up.

And I'm stoked we no longer have grass! Our entire yard is nettle, wild mint and dandelion with some odd patches of chive.

Oh and I've finally found my grandpa's selection for apple trees and found a source, so I'll be transplanting 4 apple trees I to our yard! They take 7-8 years to be good but all good things are worth the wait!

Transplant a few, they grow like wildfire.

It's still not too late to have you yard filled by fall if you start asap.

And once it's there it's not fuckin leaving lol. Stuff grows crazy and is resistant to everything.

Also, mendo kills it. I wish I could use these plants in my grow. But I can't grow outdoors because I'm too close to a park, otherwise my yard would be full of cannabis lol

Grass does nothing for the ecosystem. It doesn't help produce healthy soil. It's completely non functional and is purely cosmetic.

Herbs, flowers, fruits, veggies etc all provide major benefits to the ecosystem, make great soil, make great foods/teas/medicines and keep the pollinators pollinating.

Plus it looks fuckin better than grass anyhow if you kinda plan shit out nice.

Also it saves ALOT on the grocery bill and you know exactly what your eating. And trust that food you grow tastes a thousand fold what is available at the grocery store.

Plus it's badass to have friends over to eat and homies like, this dish could use some dill and chive, and you walk outside and grab some lol, or have it already hanging in the kitchen.

Also, if you drink, dandelion makes good wine.

Aaaand see the post above, that's spot on IMO

Glad I asked.  I kind of want to yell at people from my truck now when I drive by and see them cutting their grass.  They probably won't hear me, but it will feel real good.


Picking fresh chive and other herbs when cooking sounds awesome.  Stores charge way too much for fresh herbs.

i just picked a bowl of strawberries and some kale leaves. blended w/ a banana and i feel like a young the muska.

YO!
My strawberry plants aren't really doing so well. The leaves are looking nice and green and full, but all of the flowers keep wilting and dying. I can't tell if I'm over/underwatering, or if maybe I planted them in a bad spot, or in bad soil? Maybe I'm not giving them the kind of attention they need? All of my other plants are thriving.

You got any sage wisdom to pass on?


Also, anybody got any suggestions for dealing with squirrels stealing my shit? I put up some chicken wire, and buried the bottom about two inches into the ground. Keep in mind I can't kill them where I live.

strawberries love sun. i can't diagnose from here but i hit mine w/ water maybe 2 X a wk if no rain. they're hardy like a weed. having bees will make them fruit though. i used to get a few strawberries, they've really taken over my hill since i got bees.
squirrels? nature's vandals? fuck those guys! get you a trap for $20 or so [havahart] and kkkill the fetus! i live in the city w/ neighbors on all sides. don't shoot wild but point blank while it's in the trap. fuck those assholes. peanut butter in the trap and if you ain't got a rifle [pellet or otherwise] then drown them. or if you're an idealistic animal lover, drive em to the country and make em someone else's problem.
bunnies are smarter than my traps. they're my new bane.
idk where you are but my strawberries are done for the yr. they flare up all june like nature's herpes.

Winter ran really late here, so my guess is I planted the berries too late, which is why they look so sad compared to the plants that are harvested in the fall. That said, I'm buildin' me a squirrel catapult.

Of topic but grow sage

i've got a little bit. peppermint too.
i did parsley last yr and dried it, made my own parsley flakes. kind of a lot of work for a cheap grocery item but satisfying nonetheless.
like to get some rosemary, maybe propagate some at my DIY.

Dry the sage, burn it in a bowl in your house.

Why sage?

I've got some parsley, chives, mint, rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, and cilantro going. I'm sure sage could join the party, but I'm not entirely sure what it is.

That said, there are some wild morning glory plants growing, and I may be wrong, but I think I recall somebody telling me their seeds are full of DMT or some manner of alkaloid similar in structure to tryptamines. I'll hit the books and report back. At the very least, I could potentially drug some squirrels.

It's called smudging. Indigenous practised  and it just smells good

first batch of cukes, pickled!
didn't boil the jar to a 'pop' [used jars] so prolly eat em in a month or so. got more cucumbers in the yard. i've been really into natural preserving of foods [basically pickling or jam] the last 2 yrs.
[thumb for scale, whole lotta pickles!]

Morning Glory seeds give you LSA. Best to mix with a lil mescaline and make those microdots proper.
DMT is in so many pants. Reed Canary Grass, and I know the "clothing dye" root has decreased in quality since ten years ago. DMT is literally everywhere in varying amounts.
My wife just reminded me when she first moved in with me if smoke a gram on deemsters in an evening and watch inhabitants on repeat. I'd totally forgotten that
