Our 2015 “Experiments”

on June 10, 2015

It’s no secret that sometimes gardening can seem a bit like an experiment. Sometimes things grow like weeds, and sometimes they don’t grow at all! We enjoy solving the puzzles and learning about what makes a garden successful. But of course, the journey is the best part!

Every growing season we learn more about what can be grown using the GreenStalk system. So far we have learned that there is a variety of plants that thrive in the GreenStalk including vegetables, strawberries, flowers, and herbs!

Here are some photos from our current (summer 2015) “experimental gardens”

Peanuts

Seemed like a great idea - in theory. We are learning that peanuts take awhile to grow (over 100 days). But the leaves are pretty to look at till harvest time!

Onions

These plants are certainly something interesting to look at. We planted every other pocket with tomato plants. Can't wait to see how they grow together!

Zucchini

Zucchini plants get pretty large. Last year we only planted one zucchini plant per GreenStalk and planted other veggies around it. This season, we planted multiple zucchini plants in a single GreenStalk! They are growing like WEEDS!

Watermelon

We just really, really, REALLY like watermelon. So far, we can just see little mini watermelons growing. Aren't they cute?!

Potatoes

This is our very first time growing potatoes in the GreenStalk system. They aren't as pretty as we hoped they would be... But we like how low-maintenance they are.

If you are looking for a vegetable plant that looks beautiful, then look no further than our favorite: sweet potato plants!

Stay tuned to our blog, Facebook page, and photos page as we share updates on what’s growing in our “experimental gardens! What are you growing this season that you’ve never grown before? We’d love to read all about it in the comments section below:

    we are in zone 8 in the PNW and had an exceptionally long summer. Usually sweet potatoes don’t do well here because of the normally short season. I LOVED the foliage! This was in 2015 and in the ground using the Back to Eden method in a ground level garden. We are currently coasting in an RV park but the saddest thing was not being able to grow anything. But thanks to Greenstalk, I get to grow stuff! CAN’T WAIT FOR SPRING!

    So happy to hear that you are able to garden – even on the road! Growing fruits and veggies is too fun and rewarding to pass up! Happy Gardening! – Cody Catherine
