Dennis Commercial Garden Progress as of August 02, 2014

Last year Dennis and his friend grew a 1/2 acre commercial garden. They took the produce to various farmers markets in the area to sell. They figured when it was all finished that they had only made $5.00 an hour for all of their work. This year Dennis grew this garden on a much smaller scale.

He said he did it for fun, enjoyment, and exercise. He will be canning some of the produce and giving some of it away. He has so many onions he may sell some of them.
Before planting he would fertilize the ground with mono ammonium phosphate and urea and then till it in well. He used a drip irrigation system and made sure he kept the ground moist around the plants but not soggy. It was weeded, by hand, by his grandkids.

When he started having problems with bugs on his cabbage, he put Dipel on the plants to get rid of the bugs. Dennis planted a variety of squash and melons. They include: Crane melons, pumpkins, watermelon, cantaloupe, summer squash and a variety of winter squash.

Scott’s Garden August 16, 2014

Scott built raised boxes out of 2×12 fir. He put linseed oil on the outside to help seal it. He fills these boxes with 1 part peat moss, 1 part compost (purchased in large bales) and 1 part vermiculite.

This year he used fertilizer from the sewer plant and feels that his garden is much better, than in the past, because of it. He got most of his plants from Dennis Ayers and the rest from Lady Bug Nursery. He and his wife hand water the garden with a hose and sprayer.

Bob’s Garden August 02, 2014

Bob has been working his soil over the years by adding organic material to it each year. He usually tills in cow manure to it before planting. He feels that there are less weeds that come with cow manure. He also got compost from the mushroom farm two years ago and added it to the soil. During the summer he adds a general garden fertilizer. He uses a drip line to water the garden.
