This is a quick update and tour of our zone 7 urban Oklahoma backyard farm where we’re attempting to grow most of the vegetables for our family of 6!
A lot of our plants look like they just tried to fly United after the hail storm we had this week. This video shows what we did to help them along in the recovery process.
This is a follow up on our cabbage worm issues from last week. We tested BT (Bacillus thuringiensis) by only using it on some of our cabbage and broccoli plants. This video talks about what we learned.
This video shows us planting broccoli and cabbage and talks about strategies we use to deal with cabbage worms. They wreaked havoc on our garden last spring and we’re being more proactive about preventing them this year. Here’s more information on how to use BT to prevent cabbage worm problems! We typically order it on Amazon in bulk and to save money.
Last year we bought our broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes, and peppers from the nursery. This year we wanted to try growing it from seed instead. We built this 4 rack seed starting system that allows us to start up to 1,152 seeds at a time for less than $100! We also show how we made our DIY seed starting mix!
