Not really. Especially if you have't started yet. It's not as simple as just putting seeds in dirt and growing vegetables. That aside, last year was my first ever garden. I wasn't too great. It was a learning experience. This year my garden is full and green and starting to produce, which is pretty good considering my environment is cool, very rainy, and pretty cloudy. Everything's going well. The savings in vegetables probably won't offset the soil amendments and fertilizers and whatnot though. I probably have around $100 in it this year. Tomatoes are expensive around here, so if I get a bunch, you never know. That could be $50 or more right there.

It is actually that small of an investment to grow certain vegetables.

You can grow micro greens for a few bucks.

You can grow a cherry tomato for ~15, and even less (cost of plant +1$) if you have any land that gets full sun.

>cherry tomato

I tried them last year in my first go-around. I have very rocky, clay-like soil, so needless to say they produced some by the end of the season, but not too many ripened. The root systems just couldn't develop. Soil amendment is definitely necessary in many places. It made a huge difference for me. I thought plants just grew like that, so I stuck with the more hardy plants from last year. To my surprise, first week of summer, my plants are as big as they were the second month of summer last year (and I don't have a greenhouse, and I lack the sun exposure to grow too much in windows). If I'd have known I would have gone with more variety. Now I'll be eating loads of squash, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, and hopefully corn (something was snapping my stalks in half just for the hell of it, I had to box it in with plastic fencing, roof and all). I'm also going to try a fall garden this year. I'm saving all of my grass clipping and I'll mulch some leaves at the end of the year. I'm going to make that a regular addition to my soil. It really loosens it up.

b7f110  No.11794507


4-6 people for tomatoes. All the left-over tomatoes get sauced after the end of their season when the the first few fruits in storage begin to start rotting.

We don't use store bought tomato sauce products except ketchup.

10-25 people for the cucumbers and zucchini.

I haven't started watering the fruit trees and they easily produce 100+ pounds of fruit, that's 10+ people.

I only grow high value or sensitive produce so I'm worried more about the yield per square foot and ease of picking.

I also only eat unprocessed tomatoes I grow.

I forgot about the onions, but they didn't do so well this year because I use drip instead of spray. Normally that's 50+ pounds.

>I'm saving all of my grass clipping and I'll mulch some leaves at the end of the year.

If you have rocky soil your best bet is to use raised beds, or pick a spot and take out all the rocks by hand.

You could also plant the tomatoes in a 5 gallon planter.

Leaves work extremely well to loosen up soil. Especially oak leaves. Maple leaves work, but they can't be from a sweet variety. Hardwood charcoal also works.

Peat moss works, but you have to keep track of the acidity levels.

Mushroom compost is an ezpz amenity.

If you need to develop a dead soil, use sweet leaves in the fall (sugar maple, mulberry, and other fruit trees), along with some iron.

I wild-craft rare or desirable plant and herb seeds for selling on the net, plus some processed dried roots and herb both wild and gardened. I've gained a lot of knowledge about many niche market plants and my wife and I plan to start a small farm of a few acres to cater to the global demand, which would be good for the soul as well as the bank account. Start selling native tree seedlings too. Some plants have a yearly market demand of over 10k/year between seed and dry herb and no one adequately supplying them so a few dozen core species would provide an excellent living.

Checked, & true.

However, with gardening, you don't have to rely upon rainfall, if you're willing to water. So all you need to take into account is the number of days <5c until the next freeze. If it's long enough to grow your plants, and for them to yield, then you can plant.

And regarding economics, it's possible to get massive discounts on plants in the summer.

The whole "plant early" obsession is really related to actual serious agriculture, whether on a mass scale, or by subsistence farmers.

There are, I should like to point out, literally zero subsistence farmers using pol.

We had a cold spring that delayed planting, and even then we had a late frost that killed all my tomato plants so I had to start new ones from seed in June. But now that it has warmed up things are going well. I am testing a bunch of things this year, hybrid super sweet corn vs heirloom, till vs no-till, white clover as a living mulch, buckwheat and oats as cover crops. I have just over 50 varieties this year including at least one of each of the following: carrots, squash, corn, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, melons, ground cherries, beans, peas, onions, leaks, turnips, parsnips, potatoes, celeriac, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, radishes, and assorted lettuces, spinaches, kales, mustards, etc for salads. Plus the perennials: asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.


>Plant your tomatoes like pic, and you'll have >200% fruit production.

>Prune excessive suckers on your tomatoes and you'll get even more fruit.

Both of those things are complete bullshit. Gardening is full of myths like those, I've been testing as many of them as I can. Planting tomatoes like that lowered yield by 8%. Planting them deep and straight lowered yield 12%. Pruning didn't change yields at all. Do side by side trials to test these things instead of just repeating them.


>The whole "plant early" obsession is really related to actual serious agriculture, whether on a mass scale, or by subsistence farmers.

Not just them, also everyone who lives in a northern climate. When you have a 100-120 day growing season, you can't afford to be planting shit late.



Don't treat it like gospel or anything, but it is on the right track at least. It has the best good advice to bad advice ratio I have seen from a gardening book. Also raised beds are a completely pointless waste of time and money.


Local farmers will almost without exception be growing things you don't want to grow, and will be doing it via the "destroy soil, dump fertilizer on it, spray tons of pesticides" routine. You should be doing zero of those things. You don't need any manure by the way, are you destroying your soil like a farmer or something?

If you're doing something small scale, just use pressure compensating emitters and either the half inch or micro-tubing.

Ideal spacing is a 0.5gph every 2 inches for deep rooting plants.

Shallow rooting plants like onions require surface spraying.


>Planting tomatoes like that lowered yield by 8%. Planting them deep and straight lowered yield 12%.

You're either planting your tomatoes in the ground, or wood raised beds. Deep planting is garbage, and my picture is not deep planting.

The effects on fruit production are unmistakable with a proper heat retaining bed.

>Pruning didn't change yields at all.

Pruning increases yields on indeterminate varieties by keeping the plant from putting energy into non-producing suckers.

It is no different than pruning water shoots on fruiting trees.

Not only that, but pruning improves air flow which delays the onset of mildew, which extends the growing season by several weeks.

>Do side by side trials to test these things

Why do you think I say these things?

Like I said, TEST IT. I know you say those things because "bob's shitty youtube channel" says them. I did not say your picture is deep planting, I clearly specified what your picture describes only lowers yield by 8%, while deep planting lowers it by 12%. Both of these techniques are old wive's tales spread by people who don't understand plant physiology and mistakenly think more roots = more fruit. All it does is slow down early growth while the plant grows a bunch of replacement roots.

Same deal with the pruning myth. All suckers are producers. Pruning suckers simply changes the shape of the plant from sprawling and wide to tall and thin. It does not change yield at all. Pruning suckers does not improve airflow, people mistakenly believe pruning leaves below the lowest sucker does that. Again, do an actual trial, there is no impact on powdery mildew or late blight.

And finally, if you want to say "complete garbage advice", actually provide something to support it. I am in Canada zone 5, not the pussy US "zone 5". The people around here who wasted money on raised beds can't manage to produce half of what I get, while I do less work. If you have a heavy clay soil just dump a foot of organic matter on it and you're done.

I would sincerely like to encourage everyone to raise plants in some form or another. Even just a Chia pet can bring great peace and joy to your environment.

I work as a professional botanist and I can't tell you how much I enjoy plants and what they do for me as a person. To be able to watch life grow before your eyes and see a beautiful thing start from something as tiny as a seed and grow into a mature adult before your eyes is one of the best experiences a human can have I think. It really does bring you inner-peace and a beautiful sense and comfort with life.

I've been so fortunate in that I've gotten all my friends into growing plants. It's the best! We all exchange pictures and plants and talk about it. I'm telling you, once you get that first seed to crack the soil. It becomes a wonderful positive addiction in your life.

All my friends tell me that they don't have green thumbs in the beginning. But I'm telling you, I tried to and failed to grow plants for a good year or two, failing miserably before I finally got the hang of it. Anyone can do it and thrive at this. It just takes a little love and a little patience.

My friends and I all started growing bag seeds we found in marijuana. But you can do literally anything you want! Grow a nice little pepper plant in your kitchen. Grow a funny Chia Pet in your bathroom. Grow some sunflowers outside. There's literally no limit to what you can do. And it's so rewarding and such a nice hobby.

Anyway, I hope my words inspire you to put your hands in the soil.

All wood is free if you have a forest. It would still be more useful to burn it for heat. The only upside to boxes is grass won't spread into the bed from walkways. But it comes with significant downsides, and grass is easy to eliminate anyways. If you want to start small just use pots. Then graduate to the real thing, there's no need for big pseudo containers. When you start feeding a family entirely from your garden, you'll want long beds that are ground level so you can use a GT and save yourself a shit load of time.

08c1e3  No.11795906


"Raised beds" work in shitty soil, because they are putting a foot of compost over the shitty soil. There is no need to waste time effort and money building a box around that foot of compost. The box is not helpful, the compost is. And as I very clearly said, if you skip the stupid box, after 3 years it will be down to soil level, and the soil will be fixed. So you won't need the extra work and expense of making raised beds any more. If you just want a few tomato plants and herbs and your soil is shit, just use pots. If you are growing enough to have one or more beds, then making wood or brick boxes for those beds is harmful, not helpful. Just make a foot deep bed of compost without the box.

You need exactly the same amount regardless of whether you surround it by a box or not. How exactly can you be this stupid and still manage to use a computer? A foot of compost in a box does exactly the same thing as that foot of compost without the box you tard.

Of late I've been tempted to experiment in trying to create optimised growth environments for various food plants.

Seeing if its possible to create perfect conditions to maximise growth and minimise time spent growing.

Naturally this would require a sealed climate controlled growth environment but I may have a good chunk of what I'd need lying around here.

Anyone here got any ideas, opinions or relevant experience on the matter?

I'm thinking for the first trial run upping atmospheric pressure, humidity and CO2 content.

Depending on locale a lot of municipalities offer free soil tests in the US, especially if you're in a rural/marginally rural area.

08c1e3  No.11796198


Yes, yes. We all know you heebs hate both nature and work. But seriously spreading compost is done in the spring and/or fall, not in the hot sun.


Most plants are time sensitive. Things like controlling moisture and increasing CO2 increase yields, but they don't speed up the process.


Even if they don't, it is cheap and well worth it for your first year. Once you find out what your soil needs and add it, you will be fine after that as long as you stay no till/no dig and keep adding a mulch.

01fdb3  No.11796216


Right so time isn't gonna be affected for most.

Unfortunate but boosting yields should be enough.

One other reason I'm wanting to look at this is that it may be a good way to get around the pesticide issue. Since we're having issues with weedkillers and pesticides damaging the environment and harming consumers along with pests becoming increasingly resistant to the chemicals used to kill them.

If you're growing in a sealed controlled environment there's no way to for pests or weeds to get at your plants meaning you don't need to use pesticides.

So what about air pressure? Any benefits to plants from higher or lower pressure environments?

And humidity? Do we want it high or low?

08c1e3  No.11796236


You already don't need to use pesticides growing things normally. I don't know about pressure, but humidity depends on the plant. Some tropical plants want high humidity, most veggies don't care. Unless you are starved for space, it is probably cheaper to increase yields by planting more plants than by building greenhouses and pumping them with CO2.

fdaf56  No.11796255


I agree very much with your sentiment regarding pruning vs. yields, but I think the other anon is misunderstanding the purpose of pruning suckers from tomato plants. In my region, letting the plants go to bush by leaving suckers makes them harder to manage and requires larger spacing between plants. I do a 6ft string trellis and my plants are already pushing 8ft in height, but I've started to train them horizontal. Leaving the suckers would have likely kept yield per plant the same but would've decreased my yield per square foot. This guidance is specific to my region/conditions tho.

01fdb3  No.11796264


So why are we having this problem with pesticide runoff?

fdaf56  No.11796286


kike owned and subsidized commercial scale agriculture perhaps.

08c1e3  No.11796312


Yeah, these myths usually have some basis and people misunderstood and warped it into something wrong. Commercial growers prune to maximize yield per square foot, because they are growing in greenhouses so area is the most expensive thing. That's not the case for most people, but everyone wants to copy commercial operations assuming that must be best. It is like the chucklefucks around here that pay someone to plow their garden because if a farmer does it then it must be good!


Because of the jewishness of industrial farming. They buy land, destroy the fertility in the soil, burn shit loads of oil spreading fertilizer on it to compensate, leave the soil barren so it gets full of weeds, then grow a huge monoculture of one plant to attract disease and insects. Then they "need" to spray toxic shit everywhere to get rid of the weeds and insects and diseases. On a family scale none of that applies. Grow a mulch crop, put it on your garden, the end. Your local garden ecosystem will balance itself and you won't have huge pest problems. If you lose 10% of your beans to insect damage, just plant 10% more beans. Grow a variety of things and you don't have huge swarms of particular pests breeding out of control and destroying everything like a farm.

01fdb3  No.11796318


But isn't large scale monoculture farming more efficient?

fdaf56  No.11796332


Indeed many people don't understand the purpose of tilling is to turn organic matter under the soil to aid in decomposition and soil building. Most hobby/urban farmers I know think that having some light grass in their garden is the end of the world then wonder why their topsoil washes off every year.

Started a raised bed garden this year. I have jalapeno, string beans, red peppers, tons of lettuce and about a dozen tomato plants. All coming out very well. Just had some string beans a moment ago with lunch, absolutely fantastic.

Also, I planted two mammoth-sized sunflowers, zinnias, and marigolds. There's some more flowers I put in a pot, but I can't tell you all of em (there was at least a dozen different flowers in the pack). Sunflowers are about 5 feet and they'll get to 7, with a one-foot diameter head. Once the seeds are fully matured I'm gonna soak em in a brine, add seasonings and roast em. Looking at mid-July for the harvest on those.

To any anons unsure about making the jump and creating a garden; just do it. You will absolutely thank yourself once everything is growing and you'll enjoy the fruits of your labor. Plus, it creates a very 'homey' atmosphere to your property while also increasing value.

Efficient how? For an energy used to energy produced ratio, no. For a people producing food to people being available to die in kike wars ratio, yes. This is why cities and industrial agriculture exist, to move more people away from being humans and into being pawns for kikes. First it was for war purposes, then it was shifted to being for factory workers. Now they don't know what to do with all the useless city dwellers because they shipped all the manufacturing overseas. We're going to run out of phosphate rock to mine for fertilizer anyways, so industrial farming will end no matter what.


I have seen all sorts of incorrect reasoning given for tilling. Yours is actually one of them. Turning organic matter under the soil prevents soil building, it doesn't aid it. Tillage serves two purposes. One is to make the soil less fertile and less hospitable to plant life. This lowers the number of weeds, but obviously also makes the plants you want to grow require irrigation and fertilization. Which of course then helps the weeds too, defeating the purpose. The second is to make a loose seed bed for small seeds like lettuce and carrots. I can't find any evidence if tilling just the top inch for this purpose is harmful, helpful or neither, but tilling 4+ inches deep lowers yields, increases fertilizer requirements, and increases irrigation requirements. I am going to do a trial next year on discing vs tilling vs nothing at 1 and 2 inch depths and see if it matters. Check out plowmans folly and the follow up for a discussion of the problems with plowing, it largely applies to rotary tillage as well.



fdaf56  No.11796416


Uses of tilling is site specific and the boon or bane of it is going to vary based on individual conditions. In my area the soil has a high clay content and thus has issues with water retention vs. runoff. This is aided, in my situation, by tilling in organic matter from the previous years growth into the soil in the fall and loosening the hard packed crust with tilling in the spring. I think you're confusing situational advice with general practice. If you can grow a garden with no tilling, of course you should avoid it.

No, you are confusing "common wisdom" with reality. Your situation is not aided by tilling, it is worsened. Adding organic matter helps. Tilling hurts. You are doing both, and then seeing that the benefit of the organic matter outweighs the harm of the tillage, and proclaiming tillage a benefit. Actually read the books I just linked, they are short and very easy to understand. We've known for 80+ years that tillage is harmful. Stop causing yourself problems and learn. Or if reading is too hard, just look at the results of no-till on rock hard compacted clay: https://hooktube.com/channel/UCB1J6siDdmhwah7q0O2WJBg

Your situation is not unique, it is not special, and it is not helped by tillage. There would be no hard packed crust if you left the organic residue on the top of the soil where it belongs.

No till would solve the problems with less labor. Tilling requires more labor, and prevents your problem from ever being solved. How can you manage to believe that solving a problem by not doing something is more work than causing a problem by doing something?

Pile it up high and wait an half year or a year. Then once you plant your shit, pile that material around your plants up high. Plant some more beans in it to break it down faster. It retains huge amounts of water, is drops minerals needed ready to eat for plants, and is light as fuck to work with. And after about a year and a half, EVERYTHING loves growing in that crap.

First it doesn't work because clay. Now it works, but it is too much work. What on earth is it that you think takes so much work? Seriously, how does not doing something take more time than doing it? Your babbling isn't making any sense. Tilling is more work, and it causes your problem rather than solving it. You lack topsoil. Tilling prevents the creation of topsoil. You can never solve your problem if you till. You will always have shitty soil. Trying to insult your way out of it isn't going to work. You have a whole youtube channel full of videos showing you are wrong. He is not growing 10 sq feet, so no amount of wishing I am growing 10 sq feet is going to make your nonsense any less stupid.


A buildup of decomposed biomass on top of the soil is called topsoil. It is not something to be alleviated, it is what you are supposed to have. You are literally down to "my soil got good when I tried that so I had to till it to make it worse".

I know about composting. As for fertilizer, $40 to $60 should get me through a season. I'm looking at a good harvest this year using fertilizer. Last year I get some stuff late season and that was about it. For me and my small garden, it definitely seems worth it. I've got 9 tomatoes, 14 summer squash, 12 cucumbers, 2 peppers, and a few other things. It's a thousandfold better than last year. I loaded the garden with mulched leaves and grass clippings directly to soften the soil. Added peat moss. A little manure. And now I just top things off with with two liquid fertilizers. I don't know how necessary it is, but I'm seeing results, so I'm going to keep using it.

I get where you're coming from, but the thing with chemical fertlizers is they seem to stop working after a while. You get consistent long term results from organic approaches. I still use chemicals to patch in things I think might be lacking (usually iron and potassium), but the chemical fertilizers just dont build the soil the right way. If you lose soil diversity over time, ultimately that means you lose things that eat the bad stuff. There's a balance.

Tilling does work for some things. In large mono culture farms, it destroys the existing 'weeds' and allows the desired plants time to establish themselves. It also works to amend either organic material or materials to make it more loamy, this last one I've done to great effect, especially in conjunction with squrefoot gardening.

You building an raised bed a foot or so up. You till the dirt below it agents needed, broken down horse manure, egg shells, mostly broken down wood chips and all manor of other shit you need to up your areas soil. Then you pile on your broken down soil mixures above that and till it in again a bit shallower. mostly level. plant, and pile high with organics to act as mulch cover. Once main weak plants are established add in their helper plants in and enjoy.

Tilling does have use in shortcutting bad existing soil. If you live in an urban/suburban eviroment. At least the first two inches of soil are pretty much barren and inert, REQUIRING tillage just to even get started. Builders add builder sand (mined silica essentially) to all lawns because its easy to work with in leveling their plots and making it easy for mono culture grass stock to establish themselves at the expense of all other types of plants. So you have to punch thru that shit or your garden will never work, not matter how much organize shit you pile high, grass grows faster and mats enough to counter most anything more often than not.

>You get consistent long term results from organic approaches.

Definitely. I'm going to be adding to my soil every fall. I live in the mountains, so at the end of the season I have loads of leaves and grass that I usually just blow off the side of my property. I have over a decade of buildup I could dig into and add to my garden. I don't know how I'll get it in though, unless by the end of this season everything I put in compacts down a few inches. Also, for reference, I'm using organic stuff.



08c1e3  No.11796705


Don't keep using it. Fertilizer only works when there's a nutrient deficiency to correct. It is like having low iron and taking an iron supplement. You don't keep taking it after you fixed your low iron or you will cause a new problem, too much iron.


>In large mono culture farms, it destroys the existing 'weeds' and allows the desired plants time to establish themselves.

Yes, that's what I said it does. That's the entire reason for the existence of plowing and tillage.

>It also works to amend either organic material or materials to make it more loamy, this last one I've done to great effect, especially in conjunction with squrefoot gardening.

No, it will temporarily alter the structure of the soil, by adding a lot of air. Which will turn that organic material into CO2, completely negating your having added it.

>You building an raised bed a foot or so up. You till the dirt below it agents needed, broken down horse manure, egg shells, mostly broken down wood chips and all manor of other shit you need to up your areas soil. Then you pile on your broken down soil mixures above that and till it in again a bit shallower. mostly level. plant, and pile high with organics to act as mulch cover.

I did that exact test last year, as have many other people. 40 5x10 beds. The tilled ones produced 20% lower yield. Just do the same steps without the tilling and you get much better results.

>Tilling does have use in shortcutting bad existing soil

Like I said before, as long as you don't plow/till and you keep it mulched, you can maintain fertility indefinitely. Soil is made up of tiny bits of rock, which contain all the minerals needed for plants. But those minerals are not usable by plants as is, they need to undergo chemical reactions to make soluble compounds. Plants, bacteria, fungi and various other soil life forms do that. But tillage kills them, and exposes those nutrients to oxygen so they can become oxidized and useless. Grow oats or buckwheat, cut it for straw, spread the straw on your garden. That completely replaces tilling, weeding and fertilizing.

I've never seen it work well, but I have never seen a real test done either. It is a lot of work for something that doesn't make any sense. Look at nature to learn what works. Nature doesn't bury logs, they decompose on the surface where they belong just like all other organic matter. I had problems with high winds, we routinely get >50km/h winds here. But growing wind breaks is less work and doesn't fuck up your soil.

Keep increasing height and eventually the cat will be able to get all the way down the tree. It will now be unafraid to climb up the tree and have the strength to do so.

Walking behind a tiller for ~30 minutes is far less effort than locating a large source of organic material, shoveling multi0le loads into my pickup, and then spreading it several inches thick. It's not easy to acquire enough quality biomass to produce 200 cubic feet of topsoil (assuming 20'x20'x6" deep).

My town transfer station does mulch and compost whatever clippings/branches/etc are left curbside or brought in by tree services. However, hauling the necessary volume from there to my house is a huge chore vs. hauling 1/10th as much plus walking behind a sufficiently powerful tiller.

08c1e3  No.11802273


You need the organic matter regardless. But no, hauling 7 and a half yards of compost one time is a hell of a lot less work than tilling every year for the rest of your life, and its cheaper, and you'll get higher yields, and it will still work after we run out of phosphate fertilizer.


Because that doesn't work. Converting it to stable organic compounds only happens in the top inch. Below that it just gets turned into methane which floats away and does nothing for you. Tilling also puts too much air in the soil preventing the normal capillary action from moving water and nutrients in the soil, and kills beneficial fungi. The only case where you need to till or plow is if the soil has been previously compacted, and then you only do it once to break up the compaction. Note that walking on it doesn't compact it, only heavy stuff like vehicles does that.

08c1e3  No.11802299


I don't want you to agree, I want you to explain your reasoning. I can't imagine any situation other than trying to farm a steep hill where a walk behind makes any sense. My neighbor has a walk behind and he pays me to till his garden for him because its so much work and so hard on his back. It takes me 5 minutes while sitting down enjoying a beverage. And my tractor was cheaper than his walk behind.

If he wasn't such a dumbass he'd stop wasting money having me ruin his garden for him. Every year its "Jesus how are your onions so big!? How do you get so many more beans than me!?", and every year when I tell him it is because I don't till he swears "No that's wrong, if you tilled you'd have even more! You just got lucky and have good soil!".

This is the point where I start to think you're just an ideologue.

By your own logic, as long as I can produce a significant amount of organic matter to enrich the soil, I should be good to go in perpetuity. Well, tilling lets me turn the runoff-prone 2" of topsoil on top of heavy clay in my yard into useful, albeit suboptimal, soil with only 30 minutes of work. I can then use whatever excess from what I grow to further enrich my soil year after year. I'll accept the "20% lower yields" of which you speak for one growing season if it saves me multiple days of labor and evens out to the exact same outcome the year after.

I'm sure the millions of farmers who developed the techniwue of plowing and tilling over the previous centuries were just morons, right? Maybe, just maybe, it's a genius technique for springboarding undeveloped soil into something sustainable with minimal effort in year 1.

So you admit tilling is necessary across the entire 10 million acres of the Piedmont? It's Cecil soil composition is universally compacted below the upper ~2" of topsoil, if that exists at all. It's literally brick that hasn't been fired yet.

You aren't enriching your soil. If you till, the added organic matter is lost. You will never fix your soil that way. Millions of farmers didn't invent plowing and tilling. And they were not morons, they simply lacked an important piece of information. They developed it to control weeds, not to change soil structure. Because they had a foot or more of topsoil, they didn't notice until they had been plowing for a century or more that it destroys topsoil. Now most of the world is devoid of topsoil, and farmers stopped plowing decades ago because of this. If you bother to read the thread, I point out that I already did the test that proves you wrong. Even the first year, tilling lowers your yields. That isn't springboarding undeveloped soil into something sustainable, it is slowing down the process. And if you till every year, it is preventing the process. Read the plowman's folly, I linked it above.


No, you don't know what compacted soil means. Ordinary soil is not compacted, it is ordinary. That's what plants want. Compacted means you drove a dump truck over it when it was wet and now weeds won't grow in it. If weeds are growing then it is not compacted.

Just because people don't understand how plants grow, doesn't mean they can magically use aeroponics without nutrients. Most farm soil is already no longer fertile, that happened decades ago. That's why they put fertilizer on the soil, because the soil is not fertile, its right in the name. Aeroponics requires fertilizer because it doesn't have soil to be fertile. If you have fertilizer, there's no need for aeroponics you can just fertilize the ground like they already do. If you don't have fertilizer, aeroponics doesn't work. It isn't a solution to anything, it is just another kikey leftist "technology will save us from the problems technology created!" scam that relies on people not understanding basic science. Like electric cars.

Right now we're burning through a limited resource that accumulated over millions of years: phosphate rock. Modern agriculture is entirely dependent on massive amounts of phosphates. Once we burn through it, the age of fertilizer will end, and a few billion people will starve. Fix your soil now and ensure that you can feed your family without relying on food or fertilizer from modern farming, because it isn't going to be available forever.

>Most farm soil is already no longer fertile, that happened decades ago.

Most farm soil is no longer fertile because decades ago nobody understood that topsoil is an ecosystem that has to be properly maintained. It's all reversable though.

The soil itself has plenty of minerals in it. The issue is that nearly all of the minerals are present in an bioavailable form.

You need healthy topsoil containing the right microorganisms to make the minerals bioavailable and that usually means that land has to be grazed at least some of the time.

Dumping large amounts fertilizer on top of dead soil so that you can grow something should be regarded as an temporary emergency measure, not as a normal practice.

No, kikes and whites are an actual dichotomy Schlomo. Why are you even posting here?


All you do is put a bunch of dead plant material on the ground. That is the amending, and it doesn't need to be a foot. Perhaps this is a problem for subhumans, but white people have high enough IQs to solve such a trivial challenge. In the fall drive down the road and pick up all those bags of leaves. You can get hundreds of square feet worth in a day. Tree companies give away wood chips, lots of municipal waste departments have free compost, etc. And you don't even have to do it at once. Do a couple beds this year, then next year do a few more, etc. Once you have established it in the first place, just putting the grass clippings from around the garden into it is enough to maintain it.


Oh look, rabbi fallacies is back with the strawman.


There is no space requirement, and it is cheaper. You can put a bag of leaves on a small space easier than you can put a hundred bags on a large space. It is literally the most practical thing for the common gardener, try it instead of sticking your head up your ass and acting like a nigger.

Again, fixating on a single potential source of dead plant material and saying "that won't work for me" is nigger behavior. Use your fucking brain.

Stop saying "one of those thousands of options isn't good for me so the whole concept of growing food sustainably is wrong".

No, the premise has nothing to do with compost tea. The premise is to create fertile soil. This is done through the natural process of organic matter being broken down on the surface. Compost tea is just a way to spend time doing something totally pointless. Put the damn compost on the ground where it is useful, soaking it and then pouring the water on the ground does nothing.

I am pretty mad I don't have a yard anymore but I don't think anyone who wants to grow pot is going to do it hydroponically.

You are buying fertilizer, which will stop existing. If you were simply doing that temporarily it would be fine, but you are also here shilling against white people learning how to be self-sufficient. That's the problem.

And the only reason hydroponics stores exist for you to grow veggies is because of pot growers. That's 95%+ of their customer base. Fertilizers have whatever nutrients you want them to have you twit, people who need less nitrogen buy lower nitrogen fertilizers. Also, you are wrong about nitrogen anyways.

datamining thread?

I've dedicated most of my resources to jalapenos, chilies and specialty peppers, but I keep squash and swiss chard which were very successful for me in previous years. We had an unfortunate cold spell which caused my specialty peppers to shed dozens of their new blossoms, and probably delayed the maturity of my newly planted peppers, but at least one blossom has remained and appears to be setting fruit.

Butternut squash is great, it grows in anything and makes lots of stuff for you to eat, which keeps for months without refrigeration. I usually let mine grow out and colonize nearby ornamental trees. Swiss chard has a strong taste and if you eat them raw or even blanched they will give you lots of nutrients and minerals which you may be lacking. I grew a few parsnips last year but they never got too big, and you can find them growing wild on vacant lots (wear gloves of course, the roots are edible) so I probably won't bother with them anymore. I also tried to grow spinach but they bolted even out of direct sunlight so I don't recommend them.

You don't prune determinate cultivars.

For indeterminate varieties you prune new suckers lower than top 50% after the plant is 2 feet tall.

Suckers on old growth typically grow rapidly to 2-2.5 feet long before producing fruit clusters.

Suckers on new growth often produce fruit clusters within the first foot, so your goal is to limit old growth suckers. If the sucker stops producing fruiting clusters after a foot, cut it back.

While the plant is under 2 feet, the goal is to limit leading vines.

You're an idiot, but I have to answer this.

I tried no-till due to circumstances that made getting the tiller out of the shed a lot of work. I've fixed that problem instead.

You're right that tilling requires far more work than no-till. The difference is that no-till work ends up being work I have to do, while most of the work in tilling is done by the small gasoline engine on that tiller. Needless to say, that engine has a "metabolism" with far higher power output than my own and the "more work" gets done in "less time" which is what's really important to me.

And I live on the edge of a fucking desert, so irrigation is something I'll need for my garden no matter what. I've tried it both ways. Sunflowers wilted and nearly died without irrigation. They perked right back up after a thorough watering. The other plants that year just died.

A thirsty plant is a starving plant.

Photosynthesis converts CO2 and water into sugars with oxygen as a waste product, essentially using sunlight to "un-burn" those inputs. Plants also use sugars as building materials: starches are sugar chains and cellulose is cross-linked starch. A plant with no water may as well have no sunlight. Such plants don't grow.

A thirsty plant is a starving plant.

Yes, plants "eat" CO2 and "crap out" oxygen. Anyone calling CO2, which is literally plant food, a "pollutant" needs the fucking rope. Such people are enemies of all life on Earth.

Except you have to till until the day you die. With no till you have to put down organic matter once. The rest of your post has nothing to do with me or anything I said and I have no idea why you posted it. No shit plants need water and CO2. I'm the one that pointed out that increasing CO2 increases yields you fucktard.


That isn't compacted, it is just clay with no organic matter. It has no organic matter because of tilling. You idiots who insist on ignoring all the evidence and causing your own problem and then insisting you are solving it are a disgrace to your race. And your children and grandchildren will stave because they won't be able to dump phosphates on the soil to compensate for the lack of fertility caused by tilling.

If you're in an arid area and the local wind isn't too bad, putting up "shade cloth" is a cheap and easy way to reduce how much water your plants require. Even something like a tall picket fence can radically help in these sort of situations.

Also, I just want to make sure you know that drought conditions really aren't about energy deprivation, they are really more about completely fucking over ALL the various gradients that must function in order for a plant to survive. It's not really clear from your post if that was what you were going for or not.

Also note that plants will use evapotranspiration to help cool themselves, and once that stops working shit goes south fast. Sunflowers are better than most crops at pulling that last tiny bit of moisture from the ground, though this can end up fucking the ground over and result in increased chemical bonding in the soil due to heat and lack of water. This makes the soil more difficult to fill with water again.

About the same way dehydration kills anything else, except animals don't have metabolisms that consume water. Overall, it's a simplification, but I've found that "A thirsty plant is a starving plant" is easier to get most people to understand.

Or take the long-haul approach and mix organic material into that clay every year until you actually have semi-fertile soil. Oh wait, that's exactly what tilling grass clippings, leaves, etc into the clay does, while the retard jumps up and down screaming that tilling is bad and useless.

Is it even feasible to live fully "off grid", with say a 8 month growing season, and not get completely tired of every food you grow? Like pic 5 here >>11805364 . Maybe that's just a meme though, seems like every serious farmer focuses on a few crops and maybe a few animals. If you grow a ton of different foods it seems like "jack of all trades, master of none". But perhaps it would be good since the harvests would be more staggered.


You seem to have your shit together, sounds like great yields for that size garden. Would you say you save money this way? I grow some shit for fun but there is no way it's cost effective.

Did you bring in outside dirt for your beds or "carve" them into the ground? Having masonry sounds really nice - I have wood beds and they are shitty, though probably more resistant to getting fractured by tree roots. Masonry probably would retain water better. It would be nice if it both retained water (with a closed bottom), but had some kind of automatic drain in the case of heavy rain. I only grow tomatoes in them and they do very well in a bed. Once they get started they just explode, and there is really no loss of growing space since they grow vertically.

>Would you say you save money this way?

I save money on the tomatoes, cucumbers, and peas.

I save money on tomato sauce too, but if you add in the man hours spent processing it probably costs more. I'm fine with that, as the tomato sauce tastes better than canned shit.

>Did you bring in outside dirt for your beds or "carve" them into the ground?

Yes and no.

My property is sloped on a hill, so leveling the garden area produced enough soil to fill the beds halfway. But only after sifting out the rocks. The base of the beds were filled with rotten logs that were growing mushrooms, and the soil was initially hand tilled with all sorts of organics.

I have 2 inches of rocky topsoil followed by good soil peppered with an increasing gradient of larger river rocks the deeper you get. Fun fact: these rocks were left over from the Missoula Floods, as I live on a ridge where no stream or river could have existed. The soil type is Inceptisol, more specifically Udept.

Ground heave is a major issue where I live, so the beds were built like a large scale retainer wall in the region. Two inches of drainage rock for the foundation, with an inch of drainage rock between the soil of the bed and the inside of the wall. Everything is separated by heavy duty landscape fabric.

If I start a small mushroom grow, or use a bioreactor I could eliminate outside

>Like pic 5 here >>11805364

there are about 10.000 seeds per square waiting to for the right conditions to germinate. plowing turns the soil upside town, you put those seeds 30cm under the soil, and 90% will loose their ability to germinate in 1 year. Many of those seeds are pioneering plants, which are most weeds. Pioneering species also happen to be most of our food crops. thus opening up the soil and seeding it gives the best circumstances for our food crops to begin.

Don't do plowing and you need either herbicide (which goes together with no-till), lots of weeding or lots of mulch. mulch is neat but there is a problem with snails in wet climates.

Plowing those seeds under just stores them for next year when you plow them back up. Mulch prevents weeds, plowing just clears the currently growing one and sows a whole new crop of them. And of course plowing does nothing to invasive perennial weeds like thistles and bindweed.

Like a Jew the only way to truly eradicate weeds is gas and fire.

Mulch prevents all types of weeds. Plants require light. No light = no weeds. Mulch does create a prime environment for beneficial bacteria and fungi, that's how it creates fertile soil. Harmful fungal colonies are decreased by mulching due to the competition from beneficial fungi.

US ACE did a test run of a method of removing invasive species and restoring natural grasses not too far from me.

The idea was that they would remove the first few inches of top soil and do a deep till, something like 4 feet, of the rest.

It worked, but it also showed that seeds can stay viable for incredibly long stretches of time in the soil.

well hello kiwi,

The perennial bindweed there is actually a native. the invasive (euro) one isn't a perennial. cali thistles are a pain but plowing does hit them hard but isn't the end to all, you want goats or chems to hit them hard. it's a constant fight because once they are settled in an area a few plants will generate thousands of seeds that get carried away by wind. and there is always a not-so-clean farmer around which spreads disease and seeds, usually the organic farmers. farmer surrounding organic farmers spray 1,5 to double as much on the neighbouring fields, thus protecting them by proxy, (not saying the organics don't have good idea's or that spraying everything including your biological controll is such a good plan, just that biological controll fails often)

as I said though, the vast majority of seeds loose viability after one year of being plowed under. Organic live in soil makes it faster due to fungi etc eating the seed. there are some genetic freaks though, like gorse of which some of the seeds stay viable for 50 years. oily seeds like brassica's also have a much longer viability then carb based ones like grains/grasses.

weed controll consists of many small things, there is no perfect solution but definately things that do better then others.

check out cover crops or gabe brown, he does have a low stocking rate and semi-arid environment with very icy winter temps killing of lots of stuff.

Basically you will never truly get rid of weed so just accept that fact to begin with. You can manage it but even if you used Round Up or some total kill herbicide the weeds will be back in a few weeks.

Use a mixture of methods to get best results as it will depend on areas. Remember there are 100,000s of thousands of different garden weeds and they all act differently. Some go dormant, others don't. Some can travel miles in the air and land in your garden without you knowing. Some will look like plants you are trying to grow.

Kiwi? WTF are you talking about? Seeds that blow in don't matter, that's what mulch is for. It prevents them from getting soil contact so they don't grow. There's an assload of studies that have been done, look them up instead of repeating folk "wisdom" that is wrong, tilling ensures constant weeds and destroys organic matter. All you need to do to deal with any weed is smother it. No light = no weed. Period.

"Blood and Soil (‘Blut und Boden’) was a very important philosophy for Nazi Germany. The issue of ‘blood and soil’ nearly split the Nazi Party after 1925 and was only resolved at the Bamberg Conference of 1926. One side of the Nazi Party wanted to emphasise the relationship between true Aryans and a rural life. Hitler believed that true Germans ‘came from the soil’ – that they had a family background based on farming and life in the countryside. However, men like Gregor and Otto Strasser wanted to move the party away from the belief in ‘Blut und Boden’ and move towards a policy of attracting more support in urban areas. The Strasser brothers were defeated on this issue and Hitler rallied his supporters around ‘Blut und Boden’ while Otto Strasser left to form his own party based outside of Germany. Gregor was murdered on the Night of the Long Knives."

Just clean in generally there is not point leaving dead leaves in a pot. If it was a garden then you would leave the leaves after cutting them off because it would return some of the nitrogen to the soil. So yes the trimming would work as fertilizer but in a pot it's not really worth it.

Turmeric. I planted a tuber añ it grew

f38b57  No.11879981

Many of the most fertile soils in my area used to be forests, so I’m taking that idea and running with it. Things were struggling a bit this year, we got crappy bulk soil to raise up the garden because one end was sitting in water. Overall things aren’t growing well.

I grabbed multiple bags of very dry leaves 60 x 35 inch and covered the entire garden. The weed pressure has dropped dramatically, I’m getting 5% of the weeds I used to get. The soil is a more even moisture level making the few weeds extremely easy to remove. I used to spend 2 hours hoeing the garden rows every week because of weeds. From a labour standpoint things are so much better, and lower maintenance. I considered straw, but the structure of leaves (flat and wide) seem like more effective weed blockers. Also leaves are plentiful and free, minus your labour of course.

I feel like there might be benefits to soil fungi found in forest floors, so I am attempting to imitate that. From my initial dump of leaf litter some plants look healthier now, my tomatoes are looking like they are going to yield more this year.

The plan in the fall it to ditch the row gardening, flatten everything out, dump some manure down, then load it with as many leaves as I can gather. This willl prep the bed for next year, and block out the weeds from forming in the early spring. I’m leaving a chicken wire fence up to preven the leaves from blowing away, this has helped keep them in the garden, as we experience very high winds at times.

Cabbage, kale, potatoes, leeks, peas, fava beans, carrots, parsnips. You need the hardy stuff, but atleast summer has sun all night and pests are rarely a problem compared to more southern latitudes.


There is a pretty decent book on this subject called The Humanure Handbook.


Put flat stones or shards of pottery near the plant, this will retain heat over night. This is the reason why stuff like grapes grows much better close to stones and boulders in colder climates. Dark colored stones perform best.

You could also use the type of netting used to keep bugs out, it helps against frost and cold a little bit.

This is the correct way to garden. Straw works just fine, so does hay, or cut weeds, or wood chips. It really doesn't matter much but if you live somewhere that people bag up leaves every fall it is a really easy free option. I grow oats, buckwheat and crimson clover and cut them for mulch.

First year growing, and it is nothing but experimentation to learn. I bought a lot of cheap plastic wash bins from the dollars store and poked holes in them and bought some good organic soil and compost. I have grown some arugula and cilantro successfully so far. I have Brussels sprouts and cabbage coming along but they take forever. I got tired of waiting so I started saving the seeds from red or orange peppers and planted them to see what happens and most of them sprout so I have a shit ton of them but I don't know if they will make it for this year. They are a very nice looking plant so I think next year I am going to try and grow a lot of them. Cucumbers and kale for next year too.

Don't use perlite. The microbes living below the top inch of soil don't want more oxygen, that's why they live below the top inch of soil. The microbes in the top inch already have plenty of oxygen. You have to observe nature and understand it so you can work with it, not ignore nature and do shit that is the exact opposite of how nature works.


There's no single answer. If one vegetable has 50% of your daily vitamin A and 20% of your vitamin C, and the other has 20% of your vitamin A and 50% of your vitamin C, which one is "more nutritious"? Leafy greens, broccoli, etc all rate at the top. Peppers are good, but they have no where close to the same amount of vitamins and minerals as spinach for example.

That's ok for first year attempts, but the best thing for your soil is deeply turning it over while mixing in compost. Granted, composting takes a while, but its the best thing for your soil.

If you have a mineral deficiency in your soil, you can learn the technique of "sister planting", which is basically planting something which deposits the lacking mineral. You may want to look into that, it'll prevent overhead cost. Gardening should literally be: harvesting seed, planning out next season, compost, over-winter, restart in spring. Once you get going your only cost should only be tools.

Turning over your soil is a terrible thing. The compost will help make up for your destructive mistake, but just leaving the compost on the surface where it belongs is much better. Nature grows food while building topsoil precisely because there is no turning over of the soil. As soon as we got to north america with moldboard plows, we went from having pristine fertile soil that grew record crops, to dead barren soil that had to be left fallow while a new piece of forest was burned down to start farming on.

Two reasons:

1. Negative impact on microorganisms.

2. Negative impact on soil compaction and erosion.

These factors combine to degrade soil, necessitating constant soil amendment and replacement, adding to costs and, ultimately, labor.

However, at the end of a season, turning over the plants and roots after harvest is okay so long as you don't turn over too much soil. Loosening, or "cultivating", soil is okay.

>Loosening, or "cultivating", soil is okay.

Actually it isn't. Even the gay broadfork nonsense hipster faggots do harms the soil ecosystem and lowers plant available nutrient levels and yields. Put compost on ground.

I don't have room, plus I'm basically in a forest. There trees on three sides, and my driveway on the forth. There's not a spot on my property that has sun all day.

No it doesn't. We've gone through this already. There is no soil, no crop, no weather, no magic fairy dust that changes this. You build topsoil the way nature does: put dead shit on the ground. You destroy topsoil the way humans did: add air to the soil.


You sound like a retarded faggot. Go shill your kikery somewhere else.


It is water, vinegar, salt and flavoring, what is there to be distrustful about? If you want organic everything, buy organic everything. That has nothing to do with the ratios of water to vinegar to salt.

and this vinegar method kills the pro-biotic bacteria. This is why I'm distrustful and want organic minded books.

>I don't trust vinegar

>I think organic has anything to do with bacteria

The entire point of pickles is to kill bacteria you retard. It is a method of preserving food. Preserving is preventing bacteria from spoiling it. Natural fermentation does the same thing, it just uses bacteria to do it. It literally creates vinegar from sugar, which kills the bacteria that made the vinegar, they can't live in a jar of their own shit. You do not need to eat "pro-biotic" bacteria in the first place, you need to eat a healthy diet so the ones you already have get a nice place to live.
