First Post!

Hey everyone,

My name is Randy from San Francisco. Just want to say that after reading a few threads, blogs, and logs that I am very happy to have found this community.

It took some intense Googling for me to find a good community for aero gardens. I look forward to learning more and setting up my first project!

Regards,

Randy

I dug up one of my sugar snap

I dug up one of my sugar snap peas yesterday to see if I should try planting 'em again - nope, they're still down there, and slowly growing. Well, perhaps minus the one I dug up, tho I put it back. I've never grown peas before, but my daughter is a major fan of fresh-picked green beans. Pole beans are really pretty, too. Bush beans... not so much.

No Peat I have never grown

No Peat I have never grown broccoli before. Why would I grow something I would never touch/eat? (joke)

But good luck on your broccoli project. It may just inspire me to start one myself.

Beth, peas and cabbages are my top favorites in the garden. Maybe because I love harvesting them! My favorite is sugar snap peas. Cabbages are such pigs when it comes to keeping them well fed but when you harvest a head bigger than your own head well then it was all worth it.

I really want to learn to grow tomatoes indoors so I can have fresh fruits all throughout the year. You guys seem to have a lot of success with that!

Gisette you're right. There

Gisette you're right. There isn't really a winter here- just rain. The local garden nursery just started carrying tomato seedlings so I had to jump on it. Growers are always looking to be the first ones on the block to have the biggest and earliest fruits- especially when it comes to Toms.

I will have a lot of questions regarden aero/hydro grows (lighting). I'll research before I ask but please don't mind me if I ask something too elementary.

Thanks folks,

Randy

Hi Randy,   Welcome!  I'm

Hi Randy,

  Welcome!  I'm going to be sowing seeds for peas, cabbage, kolrahbi and lettuce today in the outside garden!  I've got lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and swiss chard growing in the basement.  Good luck with your hydro system.  Peat's the man!

Your outdoor garden sounds

Your outdoor garden sounds delicious, Randy. Can you grow tomatoes now in San Francisco? I guess there isn't really any winter there, huh?

My Early Girl tomato seedlings just came up - to plant out in early April inside a water cloche. That worked well last year, at least with the Early Girl tomatoes.

Thanks Peat and

Thanks Peat and Gisette.

I currently have an outdoor garden- growing beans, snow peas, blueberries, tomatoes, spinach, strawberries and salad greens.

I want to build an aeroponics system and am currently studying Peat's Nutrients files and Cherry Tomatoes thread.

I have to say that there is a lot to take in but I think it'll all click and come together eventually (soon hopefully).

 

Regards,

Randy
