TWO Garden Workdays! Shoutout! Capers, Bamboo, Beans, Greenstalk, Irrigation Fail | Thursday Workday
Welcome. To another Thursday workday. I've. Got Eric started, in the back picking, up passion. Fruit on the ground and. Tying. Up the vines and, doing, some cleanup of the beans, meanwhile. I'm going to give you an idea of what we're going to do today I've. Got some packages, to open that's, going to be exciting, and. I, want to give some shout outs to. Three. Subscribers. In particular, and, I'm, gonna fill you in on what happened last, Thursday. So. Don't go away I. Didn't. Film, last week per se, I didn't. Plan to film, but. Once. We got, all this okra, planted, from, the seeds that I brought back from Kentucky I said. Well I have to take a few pictures, we, used the Rings I planted. Them the way they came up some came up two, and three together and some came up single, I didn't, thin them out and, whatever, came up went into a ring right, down the middle of the, back, forty while, Eric, was doing, that I put a lot of bean seeds in where, the tomatoes had been all. Of these beans are. Long. Vines and they, can reach up and get the late, afternoon Sun so. I thought, why not, then. Eric planted, two, beans, I had sprouted and found. Big worms in the planting hole. While. He did that I photographed, the harvest. The. Next, task was. Giving the weeping acacia its, first pruning. Eric. Likes me to supervise all, the major cuts. When. He was in cleanup. Mode I started. The watering, and pruned. The, perpetual, spinach. We. Took out a number, of lower branches. To. Give more light to the plants under the trees this. Is what happens when you dump. Two gallons of water on your prolific. Eggplant, bush. And. They split but, just, look, how, many in this one branch, it. Is so loaded, down, oh this. One split - another. Big one this. Is what I harvested. Of the, Lestat octagon, dia this one was completely, disgusting. I think. Three more of these are split. That. One's starting to split that's okay, and. This. One's okay. This. One's good. These. Things are so sharp it's, like cactus, oh that's. A good one yeah. These two this. One's too far gone I think it's got some mold on it and. This. One. Might. Be able to eat around that. Okay. Eric has just taken some baby giant.
Climbing, Bamboos, out of the ground because they were breaking the irrigation and now, you're taking a bite of it mm-hmm. Really. It's, like edible. This. Kind of people doesn't. Taste like food though. Kind. Of. You. Can eat it if you want but I'll. Pass all. Right cool okay. Ah. Very. Nice they. Never stop growing Wow. Chop. It off well. You can do so much with bamboo I suppose you can eat it. Cooking. Okay take, it, you're. Welcome to it. Okay. Yeah. Okay. This. Is a package, I have been waiting for patiently. Since. Last September. This. Is from, Carmen's, nursery, a family-owned, nursery, for three generations and. I. Met Nancy you'll. See in my. Segment. From the, National, heirloom Expo now. Ever since I went to Phoenix and, visited. Jack Davis, I've been a little, covetous. Of her. Caper. Plant and, I got this yesterday Nancy. And I know always, supposed to open it yesterday but I I, thought. It would be so much better to, open it on camera and, there. Are two paper. Plants, in here which. She has packed, beautifully. Uh. Isn't. That precious oh my. I am, so excited. Look. At that. The. Next thing we're gonna open is from. Angie. In Kentucky, you've got a glimpse of Angie, and my latest video, driving, to Ashland, please, don't miss that video it sets, up the whole series. To follow even. Though it's the middle of August, she. Sent me a package, of honey, select, corn, her favorite, and. It's. From, southern, states seed. Purchased. At Bolling's in Catlettsburg. Kentucky. Pink. Corn. How. Unusual. I'm, gonna plant just a few of those kernels. But. I can't have great expectations. That I'm gonna get anything before, it. Cools off the. Next thing is from, botanical, interests. And you, know I'm an affiliate marketer, for a botanical, interests, so, if you want. To buy seeds please, buy them through my affiliate, link which you'll find in, the description below. Okay. What I ordered, was. Something, that one of my viewers recommended. They always send a free packet. Of lettuce Oh. Cucumbers. This. One this. Is, one. Person recommended this and I ordered five packages, of seeds, okay. This, is Cardinal, climber, I think, it's toxic, to eat, any part of this flower but, the. Hummingbirds. Love, it and it loves to climb up and I just. Thought it would look beautiful climbing. Up my pine tree I have. Such wonderful, subscribers. And commenters. And one. Of those is mr. Thomas Hines now. Mr. Tom found, me through old Alabama gardener, Channel, he's. Been riding me wonderful, comments, and watching all of my videos, mr.. Tom recommended. Something, for. Mildew. And blight that he saw on Gary. Pillar checks, channel and that, is to add 12. Tablespoons. Of hydrogen, peroxide into. A gallon of water and spray. The tomato's either, early, or late after, the Sun Goes Down so of, course with all of my mildew, problems I jumped. On that and sprayed. Yesterday, so, I'm waiting to see how, that's going to do, also. I wanted to give a shout out to Nia, Linn and I, looked back and Nia. Has been following me for two years now but just recently she's, been writing big. Comments. Which have been so helpful, she's. In central, California, close to the fires and, so she's dealing with a lot of stuff in, her garden from ash in. The air it's. Very hard to breathe but. I want to give a shout out to Neil in thanks so much for following me and being, such a great viewer and also.
I Want to give a shout out to, Jack, redden, now. Jack found me just a few days ago and he, wrote me about the lizard about, touching, the lizards because I had mentioned, you're not supposed to touch lizards, because they can carry, salmonella, and, just. To watch, them and leave them alone and let them do their thing in, the garden, turns out Jack is 16, and he has his first ever garden, and, he, says it helps him with his autism and, I. Wrote back and said gardening. Has so many benefits, for, so many different kinds, of people and I. Encouraged, him to send me some pictures so. Look forward to that as. For what happened last week uh we. Were, over there I was running the irrigation, he. Walked over here for something and he saw that there were two inches of water standing. Between these two raised beds. Okay. A. Bit. Of an issue here a. Little. Bit of a flood on the irrigation. My. Least favorite, part of. Gardening. It's. Underneath both, of the. Raised, beds because I only have a walkway of, I think, it's 14 inches all this has to be dug up now. I had just, an. Hour. Before gotten, all this okra planted, and I said there is no, way we, are digging this up I am going to have okra this year, even. If I have to hand water my whole front garden which is what we're going to have to do it's, going to be challenging, because it's not just watering, these two raised beds. Unfortunately. The. Whole front, yard, with. The exception, of my little triangle, over there with the pine tree and. The. Section, on the other side of the driveway is also, tied into this water. The. Bowling red okra, is are coming, along and the, scarlet runners have. Sprouted and grown four inches in a week. The. Crimson, red clover, is finally, blooming, I. Don't. Have many blooms but, the. Ones I do have are very pretty. This. Is turning, out to be a bit of a monster vine over here, where. I had one last year this is all one tomato plant I did, not prune it but, even though it's huge, I only have one tomato on here and. It's a pretty. Big one. Eric. Has cleaned, up the beans. From. The green stock vertical, garden, we're, also going to clean out this because you, can tell it's already getting mildew at the bottom so we're going to take all this out he's going to shake it through the strainer we're gonna refill, it and plant, some arugula, so now he's working on the bean bed back here got, quite a few beans, are. Most of these dry, I've. Got some green beans in here I. Think. I'm just gonna let them all just dry. There's. A lot. Eric. You're very popular on my videos. People. Like you on my videos. Yes. I'm. Very happy, from working, on the beach. I. Like. It because it's, not it's. Not everything national. Below. No. Effect, is nothing. Organic. Right, they like it content you put it in there, ah. Should. We because, it's a lot of good matter but it's got a lot of bugs I guess. It's okay yeah is, it good for this soil yeah, for the compost. Yes. Are you saving it for the compost, okay. Good, good here are the passionfruit he picked up and we. Have three figs, from. The brown turkey Fig tree. Bugs. Love beans. I'm. Trying to keep the nozzle as close to the ground as I can get it. When. Your garden, is prone, to mildew. Overhead. Watering is a no-no. This. Is actually, gonna be the best drink. My plants have had in a while. Wrangling. A hose pipe is. My. Least favorite thing, to do. And the, green stock gardens, are. Rebooted. With. As. A my slow. Release organic, fertilizer coffee, grounds, bonemeal. And. Planted. With kale. Premier, blend and the. Lower two, rows in the upper row is. Arugula. And. The. Boysenberry. Got, clipped, back the. Raised. Bed got cleared of all the beans and. Rebooted. But, nothing planted, in it yet yeah. They're beautiful what. Do you want to do with it. The. Giant. Climbing, bamboo, takes some, maintenance, you have to know because, it keeps growing. And. It, keeps putting out babies pups. He's. Digging out a few, more in here. Under. The house or under the wall. Wait. Where was that. Where. Did you get it on. This. Side. Okay. Yeah. He's. Talking about the Richie right. He's, talking about the retaining wall that, they put in next. Door when, they built the big, house I got, a tool yes. Wow. Yes. It's. Just dead, yeah. Can you cut that one out. I. Don't want to plant it, we. Have enough in fact it's, touching the house and it should not be touching the house this is fire, season oh boy. Eric. How are we gonna get all that off the house. Okay. Let's do it today then. Josh, oh they. Love, it a bamboo. Coming. From Gaza. Well. He probably had a lot more space than I did. Oh. Yeah. It comes Eric he's, gonna start, whacking on the bamboo.
Yeah. We. Save the big bamboo just, in case I ever can. Find a spot to make another teepee, trellis. Here is, my poor. Plum. Tree that is sandwiched, in between, the. Two houses and gets. Very little sunlight, Eric. We need to clip, some of this from. The neighbor so, that it the, plum, tree has a little bit more light. There. Because. That's on our side so, seems, to me that we can cut that I. Mean. It's too late for this year because the plums have already fallen but. Yeah. Let's. Take some of this out here. This, stuff all gets in with the plum tree. This. One. Okay. There's, one that's really tall, I almost. Think this big one needs to go see. Eric this one this one goes right up and it gets right on that wire there. No. This is not on the list. But. This is this is a fire hazard so it's on the list now. Beautiful. Wow that's, a lot of beans that's, everything, for. Today okay, all. Right good. Thanks. So. Eric, is. Preparing. The holes for my caper plant and, also, we. Are moving, a marigold. Plant. It. Needs good water to start and then it needs not so much water once. It gets established, Jack. Davis, watch out. Yes. Please. Mm-hmm. I'm planning, it right beside a ginger, plant I mean at some point I'll harvest that ginger, and maybe, divide the plant so I just can't worry about it, this, is my sunniest corner, and. Nothing. Needs the Sun in my, garden more than the caper plants. Forget. Any roots down there. There's. One little one, it's. Got a nice thick stem though that's what I wanted. This. Is an exciting day I. Think. So yeah oh. Good. Okay, I see, it and, a nice thick stem. It's. A great sunny day but as you can see the corner. Right, where they're going in is already, dropped, into the shade and, that's only going to increase as, the season. Goes on but. At least they'll have all. Morning. Up until 3 o'clock, this. Was salvaged, from the green, stock vertical, garden. We've. Got a worm in there great mm-hmm. It's your close-up baby. Look. What's right behind this marigold. The. Moringa. Came back to life I think. It's because it's getting more water and I have another one here and I have another one, oh here. It's, the most success. I've had with Moringa, to date. I just. Wanted to report on the progress, of, the. Goji. Berries. Look. How many berries I'm gonna have this is the second year so, exciting. If, you. Enjoyed, this, video maybe. You'll enjoy these. I. Have. A wonderful, series, from, Ashland. That I'm rolling out now I've got part 1 online and then, we're going to roll into some interesting, interviews, about gardening, and farming and. Agriculture. And challenges. In the, Kentucky, area so, you don't want to miss that thanks. For watching.
