Any veggie, fruit or flower growers here to? GROW YOUR OWN FOOD!

Just a few I grow are broccoli, cherry tomato, and ground cherry (Physalis, cousin of cape gooseberry). Broccoli had some GH floranova here n there, was the most intense blue-green color and flavor I ever seen.



Nice! That broc looks good! Not sure if mine will ever produce lol may have to try again next year


I failed outside, did very well in. Never overheated, never went more than a day dry, what I think made the difference. I’ll find out this summer, relocate to get shady breaks and planted later so buds develop thru sept not july


Nice! Havent tried growing anything inside beisdes my first bud grow im on lol. But im persistent, gona keep trying for sure. Gona take a break after my harvest i have now is ready. Gotta revamp my garden and rethink my plantings. This stuff definitely keeps me busy lol

Heres my little garden. Once the middle dies off its all gonna get cut down and im gonna plant more vegetables


We planted 4 fruit trees this year. 2 pears, plum and a peach, the peach is New Haven i think, it was short and came from Walmart 34.99. Lol, gonna have one first year :peach:. A gorgeous looking specimen. Normally 2-3 yrs for fruit on first yr trees.

Our first year asparagus, one root has grown 3 large spears, mormally first years are thinner than a pencil. Next years will be the size of jumbo pencils, yummie. Squash is producing everyday, tomatoes are turning, wife got her first beet ever yesterday.

Love growing and eating our own. Can now say that about our smoke for the first year. Yee haw :cowboy_hat_face:


Not edible but chewable :rofl::joy::rofl:

If I’m not to late this season I’ll let ya know when I harvest.
1st try was last year and didn’t do well after germ. It was my fault. Didn’t offer enough light. Tiny tiny tiny seeds, had waaaaay to many in the seed cup. Got frustrated and threw them out.
So far so good this year. If I’m not to late. I think I’ll be fine for harvest but maybe not seeds :green_heart::metal:


I usually grow butternut, tomato’s, peppers, sweet potato, spring onion in a cage I built to keep the monkeys out. It’s late winter here now so the cage is empty and going to get bird mesh wrapped because of birds eating everything too. There are a few paw paw seedlings going in there at the moment but will need be moved out later when they can handle monkeys eating their leaves lol.


Nice! And you serious about the monkey’s? :sweat_smile:

Would you care if i asked where abouts u were to have to worry about monkeys lol :laughing:


@Highgrow lol yes, dead serious! I am in Durban, South Arica. Cant leave any windows open either or they get inside and destroy the kitchen. The only products i can grow outside of the cage are chillis, cherry tomatos and lettuce


And I bitch about the mosquitoes :rofl::joy::rofl::smile::rofl:


I saw a documentary recently that said Monkey’s in heavily populated areas have gotten smart enough to know the difference between something valuable in trade and something worthless. They’re literally snatching cell phones and sunglasses because they know where they can trade them for food on the black market, lol.


That’s crazy! Hello from Missouri.
