Is that Golden Purslane, or the more common rock rose?

Gentry, AR

not sure i have always called it portulaca but some one corrected me and said it was purslane. it has leaf shape not spike shaped.

So.App.Mtns., United States(Zone 5b)

I have regular, edible purslane in my garden. The leaves are not spiked shape either. I think the golden purslane is simply taller and larger, with more yellowed leaves. Supposed to be tastier, too.

Gentry, AR

then i would say this is the regular

Bentonville, AR

Wow, It all looks great.

Are petunias easy to grow from seeds? Love the green house pictures!

I'm envious of your greenhouse, but not all the work that goes with one!

Gentry, AR

thanks guys and it is a lot of work,lol imagesoart i was lucky and got these from a friend that ordered to many plugs but you can grow them from seed just have to keep and eye on them and keep them moist and warm.
i still have to tighten the plastic on the big greenhouse because we put it on in front of a storm and it was blowing about 20 miles an hour with gusts up to 40 wasn't the best time to do it but had to be done.
me and my middle son are going to work on a hydroponic lettuce system this weekend if time permits so i will take some pics and make a tutorial.

I am looking forward to your tutorial. This weather is not helping me get things done outside, but it doesn't seem to be slowing you down any. Your pics are awesome!

Gentry, AR

ok a little late but here is the hydroponic system so far
first take a 4" pipe

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

oh you will need 3 pipes cut two in half

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

cut one in to 4 pieces "cut in half then in half again"

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

now drill holes every 6 " if you are planting leaf lettuce or cut the holes for the spacing of what you are planting

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

now cut a board about 24 inches long and space the curved cuts evenly apart

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

now put legs on the curved cut piece as tall a you would like it

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

now make supports for the legged pieces
this is a temp frame work for me if this works like i hope i will make better frames

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

one of the four small pieces goes in side the half pipe

Thumbnail by gthumbus
Gentry, AR

here is the system being tested i will try and take some pics of the plumbing in the next few day
