    Now if you are growing Roses( Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, English, etc)...let me know.
    Now THAT'S the way to motivate a new gardener HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I'm starting with tomatoes and herbs, maybe flowers (roses) next year....Lord willing

    My secret to big thick solid green plants......coffee grains!!! I’ve been using my leftover grains for decades. Hmmm I sound old lolll... I drink black coffee so once in a while I’ll add my one-two sips left in my house plant whit a bit of extra water..

    Tomatoes

I nurtured those plants and they grew 6' HIGH! They were unreal! I got not a single tomato from any of those 6 plants. Evidently I was supposed to flick the blossoms with my finger to help pollinate them. I figured the Damn Bees would do that. UGH! Never again.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Oh No!!! Ugggg that would bum me OUT !! My Dad grew prize beefsteak tomatoes in his AMAZING garden, that's when I became a tomato snob LOL. I hope that I can channel his talents while I learn, I should have paid better attention......

    Oh well, wish me luck! I purchased Burpee seeds, "Steakhouse Hybrid" beefsteaks. Nothing like slicing into a red, warm, juicy tomato....grab a beer, salt and pepper...oh and Joey of course and I'll be very very HAPPY !!!

    I recall my grandpa (Italian) many moons ago his beefsteak tomatoes were massive. One slice n it fill the whole bread. And our bread back then weren’t small like today’s. He would use chicken manure, NEVER water top of a plant but just the root as tomatoes do rot easily n love heat, he would remove the little tiny in between growth of the major stems as they are the suckers n drains the plant. I still do all of this. 3years ago my old neighbors went to visit one of their friends all 85ish and wanted me to come cause the friend wanted to give my neighbor tomatoe seeds that’s been in his family for over 150years! Hell yeah I went. Gave a few to my son so he continues the seeds. I got a few left in the freezer. Old man told me to freeze them when I store them. Them tomatoes are ABSOLUTELY FANTASTICO!!!!

    OMG what an awesome story!! Thanks for the tips too, PLEASE keep them coming!! What kind of tomatoes did the elderly man grow?

    This weekend I will start all of the tomato plants, the beefsteak and super sweet 100 cherry. I have all of my supplies gathered except waiting on warming mat which should be here tomorrow. Do you use a grow light? I didn't see you mention.....Do you start all of your plants from seed?

    This is Alberta, I’ve seen snow in July..lol. I use seeds for rooted veggies only cause we don’t get much of a summerin the prairies. Back home in Montreal no issue. Summers are normal n longer so I would start a lot from seeds. In them links, he shows you with $25 worth of seeds, you can feed a family for a year. Yes you need to do canning for winter. $25!

    Nowadays you can use led light. No need for a special garden seedlings lights. The show/links I send you GGW he started to use led lights n leaves it on 24/7 along with a small fan on the lowest setting. That episode is in that link somewhere. Really interested episode.

    This is one link but not the one he uses led light. N led lights are NOT put right above trays but 2-3 feet above on the wall..

    Let me know when you’re interested in canning. I’m in that business as I sell homemade, handcrafted pesto sauces to major food chain stores. And nowadays you have the internet too
