also the best trap for all sorts of animals is a metal tube the width of a dinner plate with concrete at the bottom.
this is poaching and is illegal because it's kinda cruel, they basically starve to death and they probably cannibalize one another.
Just put something in there they can't resist
also if cats end up in them... your neighbors wont get mad if they never find out it's you.

I had the mystery pepper that was definitely not cayenne in the last thread. My curiosity got the better of me and I took the ripest of the peppers and tasted it. Only the very faintest of discernible spice, smelled very green, if that makes sense.

It doesn't fit the capitalist/consumerist dynamic of a person who works all day for money and then spends it all on something with no value. Not only does it take effort and investment outside of a wage relationship, but it decreases your reliance on commercial products. The normalfag has been trained for generations to avoid things like this.

Keep an eye out for these little pricks and report them to your state if you find them. The little black ones jump and get lost easy. The grown ones fly when you touch them. Grab an air rifle and a 10k bb pack. Poison or scrape and burn the eggs.

>>1807670
Why not traps? Find a way to keep squirrels out, but...fuck the rats. Doubt you're going to shoot them unless you keep a light on and go out with an air rifle or .22.

I currently have two crops of Potatoes, one in grow bags and another in the ground.
The grow bag potatoes were planted earlier and received both more sunlight and watering.

Black absorbs more light, causing higher heat retention. White reflects more light, causing lower heat retention.

That's why they say to use a black cover when solarizing soil. Turns the area into an oven. Also why shade cloths are white, keeps the area below cooler.

Anyone knowledgeable on hydroponic nutrient solutions?

I am growing microgreens using a media in trays, and I know nutrients increase growth, but want to use organic solutions. I have read that sea salt if not stripped of the additional minerals would provide roots sufficiently. Any experience or suggestions would be nice.
>>
>>1808509
You can do fruiting trees like plum or pear.
>>
>>1807982
They are but also the suckers with no roots need to go into a glass of water until they root IIRC
>>
>>1807771
No idea but once its established it spreads pretty quick. I wish I could give you all of mine!
>>
>>1808649
If only sea salt was all that was needed, then fertlizer companies would be out of business

Needless to say sea salt doesn't really suffice as nutrients. There is some stuff in there that plants use like potassium, calcium or magnesium but it's not complete and has way too much sodium and chlorine which plants do also use but only in trace amounts, it doesn't take much to start being a detriment
Trace amounts so low that even most synthetic hydroponic nutrients don't include them as any city or well water would have them in sufficient amounts

If you're dead set on an "organic" source than a compost tea would probably be the most compatible thing

Dandelions. Eat the leaves, make coffee from the roots, and make tea from the flowers. Throw out the stem in case you're one of the people that it doesn't sit well with. Clovers are supposed to be edible IIRC but do your own research as there's a few varieties around here like the normal white flower type, the pink type , and the small yellow flower type.

had a lemon tree in a pot, ended up neglecting it for 3-6 months, when I tried to change the soil today there were maggots all throughout the soil and imbeded in the root system.

They were in little caccoons that looked like little dirt rocks, but when you crushed them a maggot popped out.

pretty sure I got all of the maggots out of the root system and have replanted it in the pot with all purpose potting mix.

Is the lemon tree fucked and also what causes shit like this?

Must bare-root it and transfer into clean porous potting mix. Keep the roots wet the entire time. A bucket filled with water (distilled/RO/etc is a best, chlorinated is a shit) and a air stone works good. If the roots are dead so is plant. Roots need to be light in color, brownish/black and amf. Start over. If using retail mix it will need replacing every two years max. Don't over water, citrus hates that shit and will croak on u just to prove it. Dogspeed.

I want to propagate some orange trees from my neighbor. Its the middle of winter now (Australia so still +12-18C).
Anything I should know? Seems to be just dip cuttings in rooting hormone and stick into sand-perlite mix and wait a few months.

Any help would be ace anons.
>>
>>1809077
Try it, but you typically want to graft the cutting on to a rootstock if you can. If you do not have rootstock available, you must do your method. What zone?

The only way to know for sure is to try it. I really do think though that in order to make any money, you'd have to be supplying a variety of mushrooms rather than just oysters.

Autoflowering strains are inherently crap, at best, they're crap that's hybridized with something good enough that you don't notice how crappy it is; a good hybrid would have the best qualities from both parents, but it seems like you and your plants got the short end of the stick there. Potency tends to be more a result of the amount of light they're getting than anything else though, and given that you're using blurple LEDs and don't know if you were underwatering or overwatering, I'm pretty confident that you entered this venture with no idea what you're doing. I was in the same boat, but seriously, if you want to get good at this you're going to need to quit smoking the stuff outside of quality control testing, pick up four years' worth of horticultural textbooks and then start coming back here asking more intelligent questions than "How come my ruderalis isn't giving me a sativa high?"

>>1807016
>I should make things as easy as possible for it to grow.
Not really, no. On a plant-by-plant basis, the strongest root growth results from struggling to get water and the strongest foliar growth is the result of getting new leaves bitten off, and over generations, the best plants are the ones that survived hardship long enough to set fruit. By pampering the weak, you're promoting weakness, and that'll just require more work in the long run.

Any type of lettuce exponentially grows, it seems. My swiss chard was tiny and over a month to a month and a half just got huge. Then did romaine, that grew quick. Now doing strange varieties; those are going from little wimpy things to just huge. You should shade them though; put some posts in the ground and use some weed fabric to shade them on one side.
>>
>>1809213
Cucumbers. They start out slow for maybe a month then just get huge. Plant one or two. Buy a plant now (pre grown, a foot or two long at most) and let it climb. Hand pollinate the flowers and you'll have cucumbers in no time. They just need stuff to grab on.

No clue. I have holes through my leaves, but the leaves got big enough quick enough that I don't really have to worry about it killing my plant. I also don't have enough bugs around to worry about it (lucky). Neem oil is the only thing I know about, but I haven't used it on my plants yet. Someone recently (or was that MIGardener in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFXFo1ERmVs ?) said something about how they have some weeds in their garden and it seems the bugs go after that, instead. I have a few weeds in my garden (yellow flower clovers, big leaf close to ground weeds, grasses, etc) and it really seems the bugs go after them, instead! Not sure if that would help you here, but it's worth a shot.

Corn first, then beans right under the corn, then squash a little bit away in a circle. Do summer/zucchini/scallop squash probably, vine squash will try to climb up the corn and might tear it down. I don't know how sturdy the corn really is anyway.
>>
>>1809619
thanks dude

Also corn is wind pollinated, not bug pollinated, so you'll either have to plant like 10 plants in a little 4 square foot plot or rub the male parts on the female parts manually.

Winter squash may have more flavor but it takes longer, cannot be harvested while immature, and isn't ready in time for spring or summer. It's not bad, but summer squashes aren't worthless.

Alright, Three melons officially ready and done. Gave one away, so here's two. They look really good, smell really sweet too. There are several more on the vines which will take anywhere from a few more days to a little over another week.

Anyways, the melon experiment is basically done at this point. Now it's pumpkin season. Of the 8 seeds I planted, 5 have sprouted now. Just waiting on those last three. Aaaaany day now...

In any case, this is the main event, the one I'm most excited about. I hope to be as hands off and low maintenance as possible, that's what the hugel was for, but I will absolutely coddle them (from a distance of course). God, I love pumpkins.
>>
>>1809732
Please let us know if they actually are sweet. Those still look green to me.
>>
>>1809734
They were easily pulled from the vine. Part of it is the lighting, but part of it is also them likely being sun bleached. Some of them were exposed to more sun than the others.
>>
>>1809737
I've done the same thing and have them be unfinished. Only opening one will tell.
>>
>>1809740
I suppose you're right, but two signs is a pretty good indicator. Easy detachment of the vine and sweet smell on the skin.
>>
>>1809741
I hope they turn out sweet and delicious! Are they from the same plant or two different ones? I've read that if you prevent the same plant from making more than one, that one is much sweeter.
>>
>>1809749
There were 7 plants total that survived, and each plant has no more than 2. Each mound had about 3-4 melons each, each mound had two plants. Some of them are too far behind to actually mature in time, so I'll probably just let those ones die cause I'm done with the irrigation. The force of the water has sprung leaks absolutely everywhere that I have dug and it's just way too much work now. Truthfully, I think there's about 3 or 4 more I'll be able to harvest in time before the plant dries up and dies from dehydration.

Too hot already then?
>>
>>1809772
No, it has nothing to do with the weather. I said it right there, I'm done with watering. The setup that I have, the water is so forceful that the trenches I dug to direct the water have broken up, in addition to being utterly taken over by grasses, tomatillos and other weeds that it's just no longer worth the effort of work. The ones that are too far behind that I refer to were the melons that got pollinated several weeks after the first ones. That's what I mean by they won't mature in time.

So I've got 2 habanero seedlings, 4 cayenne seedlings, and a seedling from a pepper plant I bought from the garden store. I also have some 7 gallon grow bags. I do not have space for 7 more pepper plants individually potted.

What's the maximum number of pepper plants you would put in one 7 gallon grow bag? I've seen other people put one plant in a 1.5 gallon container, and that seems small. I'm thinking one habanero and two cayenne in two bags, and the mystery plant can be in a milk jug or something.

Alternatively, I could do 3 bags with 2 plants each in them, and mystery plant gets the milk jug.

Thoughts?

>E30 because I'm actually a spy from /o/
>>
>>1809853

If you still have a decent amount of time left in the season, I'd do one per bag; they'll use it and be healthier than if you crowd them.

I also give your photo a 'thumbs left'.
>>
>>1809879
I'm inclined to use some smaller containers if I'm going to be individually potting them. Come to think of it, I think I only have 3 bags open. I've got 4 cubic feet of soil on hand, so that bears out.

Any good ideas on cheap 2-3 gallon containers suitable for growing peppers? Might just go to the hardware store and get some terra cotta.
>>
>>1809893
>cheap 2-3 gallon containers
All of my planting pots are 5gal buckets from the bakery; I find that filling those about 3/4 full is just about right for tomatoes, so that's what I'd recommend for peppers. They cost me 50 cents each, but some places give them away for free. Also, my mushroom bins, food storage containers, laundry wash tubs, tool box... I have a lot of 5gal buckets.

I'm building some raised garden beds for my mom and want them to be usable without her bending over too much, so I want to have them around 70cm off the ground. Im thinking of building them out of corrugated iron, but they need to be fairly large (thinking of doing 2 that are 10x2 meters) so I'm not sure if the steel will stay strong once the dirt and whatnot is added. I could always build 4 I guess and go 5x2 but even then. Should I just build them out of wood? I dont want to be rebuilding them in 20 years time.

Also since they'll be so tall what should I do about filling them? It's basically 30m^3 of soil I'll need, but I'm not sure if it even needs to be that deep. Plan is to have so root vegetables amongst other things, and I'll probably put reticulation running through all of them.

Also, do I need to rip up all the grass first or will 70cm of soil be enough to kill it off?

Shouldn't you not use them because of the coal tar and other things in them if you're going to grow shit you're going to eat in your raised beds? Same with tires for some reason. Not touching the dirt, maybe.

I’ve never done any gardening before, I bought some pepper plants a couple of weeks ago and mostly had them inside, with the exception of one day I brought them out to my patio. Things were going great but recently these bright red insect looking things have cropped up on one of the plants. They don’t move but they seem to be multiplying. What are they and what do I do about them.

I live in Japan. I’ve got three of these peppers in one rectangular planter.

If you are in zone 6 or colder get ye a greenhouse. Everything in here is growing faster and bigger than the plants outside it. Because it's 25C even in July. This is just plastic, but I can't wait for it to wear down so I can build a glass one 5x the size

Those are aphids. They're sucking sap, and they won't kill the plant but they're detrimental to it. Ladybugs will eat them but there are also things you can apply, famously neem oil.

The most easy thing you can try is to spray cold water on the areas where there's many of them.

Zone nine is really stretching it for mango. Im in zone 10a my mangos grow really slowly and in some years the tips get fucked by winter. If he has temps that drop in 30f he will have to protect the tree during winter for at least the first couple of years.

Neem oil is bad for everyone involved desu. Overuse of it is leading to immunity issues.

First line of defence against bugs is a balanced ecosystem. Drop some praying mantis eggs, nematodes, thousands of ladybugs, and spiders (if you can get your hands on them) at the start of summer. If that fails diatomaceous earth and insecticidal soap.

I bought a 500-acre plot in northern Mexico. It's got a seasonal (summer&autumn) creek, a recently-made well (I can legally pump 3,200gal/day) and not much else!
I want to start by building a barn (warehouse?) to store feed and also store whatever equipment I buy for it (lowbed trailer to transport feed, cattle trailer, a tractor).
This is what I'd probably use the place for:
~100 head of cattle
5 acres for corn/oats, maybe alfalfa
a couple acres for sheep (for personal/family consumption)

Is there a good standard size for a barn for something like this or how can I figure it out?
I'd hate to spend good money on it and then find out it's either too small for my needs, or too big which means I invested more resources than necessary.
I was thinking without much info about a 60x60ft barn but I went into a similarly sized warehouse and figured it was too big.

Maybe 30x60ft would work? What do you think?

Anyone have experience with plants staining their hands/shirts on here? Trying to figure out some stuff that you wouldn't normally think would stain fabric or stuff you wouldn't normally use to stain fabruc. Recently stained a white shirt by accident while picking mulberries out of a tree; not sure if it'd make a good stain as it did get lighter with some Dawn and water. Peroxide helped a little. Interestingly, the clear Dawn made it turn blue. Could be a PH indicator; not sure what was going on there. Only other thing I remember having a lot of color to it was the juice of over ripe sugar loaf lettuce (turns your spit deep green). I know of the common stuff like walnuts, grass (can't really be concentrated with my attempts), turmeric, cabbage (too light even in the videos I watched), etc. I'm just looking for the uncommon stuff that not many people talk about. Completely experimental, just for fun. I have a few white cotton shirts I want to stain.

If you can't get a shade cloth, weed fabric works as a good shade cloth if you need it. Bought some for that exact use. Also the water bottle thing like >>1810699 said.

Any advice on slug/bug problem? I just skewered about 20 slugs that were feasting on my beans, and then fed their skewered corpses to my pet bluegill. Does vinegar or dilute dish soap work as a spray?

Yes, it's flowering. Onion flowers are weird looking among plant flowers. When it's in full bloom, it looks like a big puffy white ball. The seeds become visible and black when they're mature.

What kind of onion is it? Is it an actual bulb-type onion, or green onion scallions? Bulb type onions will be visible above the surface.

So my tomatoes are getting eaten as soon as theyre ripe by snails. They dont care about the green ones at all. I picked a bunch off today and killed them and ive also put out a thing of beer since i heard it works. I have some really delicate natives nearby so i dont think i can use pesticides (and i dont really want to anyway). Is there anything else besides beer and a daily search that will save my tomatoes?

it turned it a decent shade of purple, but then went a dingy gray-brown as it dried...a worthy experiment but a failure nonetheless

>I tried using pokeweed as a wood stain once
Thank you, anon; I appreciate the suggestion! I see that all around here! Now if I could only remember where. The gray-brown may be a good camo color. Just have to hope my skin is fine with it.

Also, some interesting info: walnut stained shirts are pH indicators. If you ever stain a shirt with it, the armpits change color as you sweat and if you put a ton of (specifically Arm & Hammer in my case) deodorant on, they change color in a different way. Wash it and it goes back to normal. Strange stuff.

A 3 litre bottle can easily last that long if you only put one hole in it and put a medium like cotton in the cap

Does anyone else not care about other people anymore.Anyone else come to hate bluepilled friends who actively can not be woken up?I no longer care to humor a woman of her shit.as soon as she starts being annoying i just find a away to stop talking to them.There is nobody i can be around without them being fucking stupid,annoying,or acting like they are the star of their own shitty movie.Has anyone else noticed?I mostly see it in the women.they try so hard to act like badasses .everything they do and say has to somehow revolve around building this image.why do people acct like they are the star of a movie.why is no one normal anymore.why do i feel like not being around people.why can't i connect with anyone.

you can pick them when about 1/4 or 1/3 of a tomato has changed color and put them on the windowsill to mature fully and you will have a hard time to tell the difference in taste.

>>1811031
>raised bed
>on top of a concrete slab
raised beds are on top of ground, anon, hence "raised"... put holes thru the concrete slab so the water can escape into the ground or thru the sides of the bottom of the bed close to the concrete. maybe put an inch or two of coarse gravel in the bottom

it's a fucking raised bed on top of concrete, same shit doesnt apply. if there's gravel in the bottom there's less obstruction to flow sideways and out of the bed.

Excuse you. The pot and the tray have zilch to do with the flow of water other than confining it to X volume. Ah, kinda like the frame of a raised bed, ya. How the water interacts with the growing substrate as it descends to where it wants to go it could really give a shit if the individual materials along the way are made of plastic, concrete, loam, your ass... Of the variables that do matter, particle size is right there at the top. So, being the uber-shpektakular physics phenom u are Corky you already know that water will saturate within one heterogeneous material before making the traverse to a volume of material whose mean particle size is CONSIDERABLY different. It's been quantified, too. Guess wat your fukeen "gravel in the bottom" qualifies as, Captain Retardo. Wat effectively occurs is a reduction in potential root growing space proportional to the volume of watever bs u tossed in to be "less obstructive to flow."

Cloth soaked in vinegar around the stem/pot like a cat fence. Also put pieces of bark and wood between the plants, snails and slugs will sleep there and you can collect them during the day without much searching. Remember that dead slugs attract slugs so dispose of the corpses away from your plants.

For long term eco-friendly help build a frog pond close by and attract a resident hedgehog.

Not completely sure it's anything what you're talking about but I've also had shit like that in the past few years. I've just had to stop talking to people when they can talk about some shit and I can't for whatever reason or they just never seem to be around to talk to you when you need them. Or when it seems they're always talking to other people and seems they're ignoring you. Seems no one can just be themselves anymore either; they have to revolve their personality around being in a certain group/type of people. Just fucking annoying. I mainly have short conversations (though sometimes 30 min to an hour) with local people now, usually 40+ y/o because they're either selling me gardening stuff or have similar interests.

Not sure exactly what your situation is you're describing, but every now and then you have to remind yourself you don't need short-fused assholes in your life. I'm not saying to stop talking to someone because you've argued with them once, just that you should really think about it if you never seem to get along and they don't seem to care. Fuck them, find a way to make yourself happy.

Mainly southeast Pennsylvania. They came from China, supposedly on a shipment of plants. They're fucking everywhere in this area. Right now, they're in stage 1-2, so black with white spots or maybe a little red on them. Look out on grapevines, tree of heaven (PA is calling for removal of most, if not all of them), under leaves (like on grapevines), etc. More info is available from Penn State. https://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly

They fucking suck; they're the new Japanese Beetle, basically.
