Hello all...I'm from the garden state of NJ.I'm wrapping up things in the greenhouse I started on around the 5th of April 2012
It's been an expensive project for someone who lives on a pension!!! But something I wanted to do for the past 30 years!!
I'm growing primarily vegtables from seed in starter cubes and transfering them to 3"sq. peat pots...from there I'm putting them in Bags...3,5,7 gallon...some of my vegs are going in "troughs" I've constructed out of 3/8" steel rod with a wooden end on either end of the trough.
The troughs are 18"wide 12 inches deep and 8 foot long...they will be wrapped with 6 mil poly with a hole pattern on the bottom for drainage.
I'm using pro-mix BX and I'd like to use fish emulsion or compost tea(vermiculture water) to fertilize my plants.
I'm probobly going to run 3/4"black plastic tubing down the lenght of my benches with "spaghetti" tubing going directly to the base,stem of the individual plants...for the exception of smaller plants which I may use soaker hose.
This is my first attempt at growing plants in a controlled environment...My greenhouse is 20 by 40 feet with a 12 foot peak it will have a high efficiency propane 100,000 BTU heater for the winter months...pricey little bugger!!!
I have lots of questions,lookin forward to chattin with you all!...Dave.
