Progress Started: I am close to completing this skill. I have planted out 3 full garden beds of vegetables, several areas of potatoes, and my fruit production is looking to be a bumper year.
Goal Completed: Learn about and grow 3 summer food crops. Crops: Melons, Tomatoes, Strawberries
Progress Report: Added velcro closure tapes to both ends of the cold box plastic canopy to form a more sealed environment that will allow it better regulate its internal temperatures.
Progress Report: Planted some Pumpkin seedlings which I have been growing this afternoon, so now I have:
I will plant my tomato seedlings soon.
Goal Completed: Grow at least three different types of vegatables and then eat them. (never gardened before)
Well two of three aint bad.
New Goal: I'd like to begin learning how to garden for fresh veggies, fruits, and herbs, with a later goal of canning food. Foods I'm interested in growing include- Spinach, Kale, Carrots, Celery, Cucumber, Ginger, Tomato, Rosemary/Thyme/Sage/other herbs, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, and perhaps a fruit tree or two.
I'll probably pick 4 to 6 of the above to start, as a beginner.
-I'd like to either attend classes or do enough reading to know how to start as a beginner, such as the seasons in my area, what grows well when, basic soil/water dynamics, etc. I'd like to have my reading, classes
Goal Completed: I am going to be starting my first grden in the spring. It's a little corner garden. The soil in my city is the best in the valley so I'm excited to get started.
My garden went really well for a first year. I grew Kale, Sugar Snap Peas, carrots, and broccoli.
Need to work on boosting soil fertility now.
Goal Completed: Seed and plant 10+ herbs/perennials to grow and harvest over the winter. I plan to do this indoors and in cold grow beds outside.
Progress Report: Planted 10 comfrey plants and 2 pots with root cuttings. Stored 4 inside and the rest outside. Very interested to see how the inside plants take off.
Progress Started: Learn how to start seeds inside this winter and then transplant to the gardens. Learn about soil, fertilization and minerals and apply that knowledge throughout the growing season. Be able to identify issues with the plants and take appropriate action (either pest control/management or soil amendments).
