landscaping

One of the things you can do to improve the functionality of your home is landscaping.  It is hard for many home owners to see the creative side of planning out a good well featured landscaping plan.

 


Watering the garden…

If you have been a gardner for long you know that water is the one ingredient that you just must have in order to successfully raise good veggies.

Without water, your plants will not thrive.

For the last three years we have been using a special irrigation system for managing the water in our garden, it works very well but it is not automatic.

In order to get the most out of any garden you have to be willing to do the work.

weeding, pruning, caring for your garden is the thing that really makes a difference.

 


Soil Testing

One of the things that many gardeners need to do but often do not take into account is the nature of how your soil can really play a big role in how well your garden grows.

Check the condition of your soil

The type of soil you have can greatly effect what happens when you get your plants in the ground.

Knowing what types of fertilizer to add and if there are any mineral deficiencies that require a supplement, like lime or calcium, we see gardens every year with blossom end rot and this is totally preventable by adding calcium to the soil.

Check the condition of your soil

This can make the difference between having a nice crop of tomatoes or a garden full of dead tomato plants.

when you think about it this is something that can save your hard work and efforts when developing your garden plan.

 


tomato seeds

Planting and growing seeds can be difficult but not when you have a plan.  Growing your own garden and keeping seeds is a great way to insure you can grow a garden when you really might need to eat.


sprouting seeds the hard way…

There are many different methods of developing good seed stock.

It can be as easy as having a good package to store the stock in and a good environment that will preserve the seed stock.

Legal Canibis

So…  What is next?

Is it true that Medical Marijuana and legalized recreational canibis use.

 


Growing Pot Legally…

There is a trend that is sweeping America and it is directly connected to the legal Cannabis states that have begun to operate over the last few months.

There are numerous vendors out there selling information about how you can profit from the legal marijuana cultivation that is beginning to take place in fact Colorado is now the fastest growing state in the union and with good reason.

There is a huge interest in profiting from the legal status of growing and supplying dispensaries.

There are numerous guides, ebooks, direct learning courses and even professional teams that setup a legal growing operation.

While it sounds like a good opportunity to get into its also not as easy as you might think.

First it is highly regulated, in fact you might find it really difficult to get started without having a lot of money and a more than a few close personal friends that are already in the business.

There are a lot of problems and also some serious implications involved in legally growing the plant.

So, what if you just want to grow your own medical marijuana?

Well now that is something different, at least it should be right?

The truth is there are so many requirements and regulations that you might find it very difficult to legally grow your own marijuana even for medical private use.

Recently a local business traveled to Colorado to explore the opportunities and found that the cost for getting started was somewhere around $25,000.00

It shows that even though perhaps in some states the war on marijuana is almost over the regulations and rules make it so difficult that it might be prohibitive.
