Growing Stuff, Potatoes And Things

I was talking with one of my friends about his garden yesterday and he told me he thought potatoes are too difficult to grow. So i was like “They look like the easiest thing to grow ever! I watched some youtube videos about them! And it looks well easy!” Well, i haven’t got my own garden at the moment, but i know potatoes grow in a fucking plastic bag, with no soil in it, in the cupboard, that’s proof enough to me. They are like crazy!!

Anyways, i also watched some videos on them a couple of days ago and thought one thing that is so interesting about them is that once they are growing you just top them up with soil or compost or whatever and they keep growing and making more potatoes, it explains itself when you’re watching the video. Also the contraption used in the video makes them really easy to harvest, no crazy digging and shit. There are several different contraptions on the net that you can check out, but the one i will show you seems to be one of the easiest and cheapest. Check it out!

 

Okay, so i’m not an experienced gardener or something, but the topic interests me and yeah, here is a video of a guy self pollinating corn. Don’t forget, if you grow shit inside you might wanna check if it needs bees or something or how to pollinate those plants yourself. Thing to think about.

 

Then there is this video i found interesting, coz it shows you a different container option to grow your plants in, like if you live in a colder climate and have to move shit around or have a limited amount of space, that option might be good for you. Dude is growing some ginger.

 

If you grow food, like spuds and things and you wanna make your own seedlings, go buy the organic produce. Some people might think the chemicals vegetables are treated with aren’t so bad or wash off(like wtf?). Check out this video to see why. Such a sweet and clever video, well worth the watch.

 

And a little bonus, Zoe asked me about the charcoal discs and tree sap i was blogging about yesterday and how it works so i thought i post another quick video to show you how it works. I used to to this all the time and it is sooo much better then most incense!!! Really!(i didn’t use it with the salt, but i guess you can experiment with that)

  1. Thanks for the video, definitely makes me want to try charcoal discs.

    I have grown potatoes before and I remember it being stupidly easy. I think we coated ours in a little honey before burying to help them grow better. Was one of the most interesting semesters of science I ever did. We had 12 garden beds all up growing heaps of different things. Cucumbers are also pretty easy, from memory.
