Re: [Organic_Gardening] Orange Peel Surprise and Slugs

 

Hi,
 In the past, for small garden beds I have laid wide (12") boards around the perimeter. Before the heat of the day the slugs migrate to the damp, cool shade underneath the boards, making it easy to flip the boards over & do away with the little buggers.
Worked for me.
By4now,

Hi there, glad to see the Organic Gardening group functioning again.  I have a question:  I have two fig trees that I overwinter in my greenhouse.  Last fall I looked at a u-tube tutorial on how to prune the fig trees and keep them healthy with a weeding drop of liquid fertilizer.  The Black figs look fabulous---thicker and many more on the tree than in the past.  But, when I tasted them, they had no flavor at all--looked great but tasted like foam rubber or sponge.  What was my mistake?  Did I prune at the wrong season?  Should I do that in Spring?  Or in the dead of winter?  Any thoughts?

Hello Group:

I am slowly converting my landscape to incorporate  more edible foods. As such, I have put a bed next to an existing lawn that has various vegetable seedlings emerging.

I have put out egg shells and coffee grounds for nourishment and pest control. Most recently, I put out chopped orange peel in an attempt to deter the cats from sitting in the bed. Interestingly, the slugs absolutely love the orange peel. It has made it easy to pick them right out of the bed!

 The orange peel seems to work better than beer traps; of which I have had mixed success in the past.(evidently invertebrates have a very fine taste for brew and expect only the best). 

Do any of you have other tried and true methods for slug control that you prefer to use?

Happy Gardening!

Re: [Organic_Gardening] Orange Peel Surprise and Slugs

 

Here in Mesquite, Nevada, we are allowed to burn some of our garden waste such as branches, limbs, and tumbleweeds.  I take the powdery ashes and pour a small border around my plants.   (especially in the spring) Snails and Slugs absolutely hate the ashes!  We also have pesky little Cotton Tail Bunnies that ravage our vegetables that hate the ashes too!  Works like a charm!

[MittleiderMethodGardening] Video of Jim Kennard Creating a Mittleider Soil Bed

 

Group:


Many people have asked, and finally a very patient woman managed to produce this video of me as I went through the steps of building and fertilizing a soil-bed.  I'd say "enjoy", but it's rather long.  You can move through it faster however, and it does illustrate the process.


If you are growing in the soil I invite you to watch and replicate this process.

[MittleiderMethodGardening] Tomatoes Producing Fruit Through the Heat of the Southern Summer

 

Friends: Think your tomatoes can't produce during the hot summer months? Think again! Using The Mittleider system of growing you CAN grow, right through the hot summer! I just received this note from a Mittleider gardener living in Florida, and it's definitely worth reading:

"My wife and I live in West Central Florida. We have been gardening for years and where we live you have two growing seasons. We plant in February and September.

In years past tomatoes planted in February really start to struggle from the heat in June and by the Fourth of July they were always done. We had come to accept this as just normal for Florida.

I am always researching and looking for better growing systems and one day came across the Mittleider gardening course and I ordered the book. We had already adapted grow boxes and vertical growing. The thing that really stood out to us was the micro nutrients and the weekly feeding schedule. We ordered the micro nutrients and mixed up the fertilizer per recommended amount.

In February 2016 we started feeding weekly and the results were amazing. All of our plants grew faster and you could see that they were definitely healthier. The one plant that stood out the most was our tomatoes. The stems grew much sturdier than ever before. They grew to 7 feet tall and just kept producing all the way through the summer heat until the end of August when we took them down so we could start our September garden.

Our winter garden has been equally impressive. We are now looking for and finding ways to preserve the excess; because with the help of the Mittleider system our small garden is producing more than we can eat at one time. Sincerely, R & L J"
