Ginger in the greenhouse, I will be moving it to a large pot soon. I want to go research what size and shape of pot is best for Ginger.
I went out to take a picture of the Ginger since the topic of growing it came up. While I was out there I took a few pictures to share and give commentary on.
The cloning machine, no roots showing yet but its only been a day or 2. I tried to remove one of the plugs and discovered that I may end up ripping the growing medium by pull it. I may find out I need to buy another tub just to a 2nd lid and use the next size hole saw. We will see when I need to remove a rooted clone. Shouldn't be too long because tomatoes root fast.
When bubbles come to the water surface they pop or snap and put a mist in the air and that is why wets the growing medium, then as roots grow they will go straight in oxygenated water. I am told hydrogen peroxide is beneficial in a set up like this but I have never used it. Maybe I will buy a bottle and add it.
Below is the leaky tray full of soil where I poured a bunch of that "Chick Mix" forage seed. Many of the seeds in this mix can be planted in fall so I might plant directly in the run with wire cage over it. Kinda like a rabbit cage except it would only be a few inches tall. This will allow plants to grow but prevent beaks from getting down to the roots.
even though night temps are not much warmer than outside the green house (in the 50's or high 40's) the day time temps being in the 90's seems to have sped up ripening. Before I put them in the greenhouse the peppers had stopped ripening after temps cooled off in sept.
