I am putting in a floating garden for lettuce, and maybe a few of the hot peppers. $50 jalapeno.Managed to get a lift with the peppers, melons and cucumbers to the plot just before it got dark. Will be up to the plot early to get them all planted. Looking like I'll need to relocate some of the salad crop but it'll go inbetween the rows nicely so no waist there.
I'll also be cropping baby salad leave tomorrow.
Noo.. The cost of the garden. 4" flexible drainage tube stuffed with 4" diameter PowerAid bottles with plastic garden fencing stretched over it and a containment system for the top of the root mass. I think each pepper will thusly cost me about $50. Then there will be the cleanup labor getting it in shape so it will work again next year...Lol ... Feel like I'm about to make a fool of myself but a $50 jalapeño? Is that a type or the price you paid?
If you buy fresh pepper/chillies just whip the seeds out and dry on a paper towel then sow them. No need to pay daft prices!!!
The floating idea works well with lettuce. Especially if you've got fish as well.
First off put the spade down!!!
Pull up a chair, grab a brew then watch this ...
