1. Class 4 Introduction: bases. Here's how you can do it yourself. Welcome to backyard abundance. Hello again, everybody. Welcome to Class four of five here on skill share on the backyard Abundance project Class four is going to be fantastic. You should have your garden all planted and going now and removing through the content together as a team Class four, you're gonna learn how to make and put out your own fertilizer, so your own source and supply of organic fertilizer to put on your plants as you need them . You're going to set up your incom poster and start mastering compost basics to produce regular new, healthy soil for your garden. And you're going to start thinking already about the next plantings you're gonna do because some of the stuff you've planted you'll be harvesting within 20 or 30 days. Others might take 100 depending on their life cycles. So when you finished harvesting, if you're soils nutritious, you might be able to get another cropping in a certain garden. Better, at least in a certain row. Let's talk about cycling and seasons and how those harvests are gonna keep on working. Let's jump into class for 2. Chapter 9 How to Set up Your Own Composter: So I'm at the entrance to the backyard abundance project, and I'm squatting down here on a little piece of concrete. It's a concrete pad. Ways. Probably 20 kilos. It's considered a two foot by two foot, so it's about 60 centimeters square. Why do I have it here? It's taken the next step. Taken it up to the next level for backyard abundance because we know the essence of great healthy food, which gives you a great, healthy body, is that you start up with great, healthy soil, so you need a way to make compost. So check this out. I'm just gonna grab something, and I'll be right back. Are you ready for this, guys? It's taken it to the next level. Very simple. Very simple. That's a little composting bin by putting it on the concrete pad. It's completely Raton rodent proof. It's got little breathing. Ventilation is here. These in North America cost 30 to 50 bucks, depending on whether you buy them new or used the lids open up on the top like that. And the simple definition of composting soil is just mixed greens and your browns, your carbon and your nitrogen, your soil and your fresh stuff. Make new soil by doing it in the lasagna type player, so you put a calm poster in your garden. Now you can put all your leaves and your trimmings any weeds that you pull into here, layer it with soil or household compost, and you're gonna be building your own soil to put on your beds and fallen spring rock on. There's almost anything that's biodegradable that could be put into there. We have a household compost ER, and we kind of store in stockpile all of our house, wasting their over the winter. And as things start to warm up in spring like it is now, we start to make soil. And then I use that soil for two things. Motion around plants that need moisture retention and keeping away the weeds. And I put it over all my garden beds in fall when I'm putting them to bed for the winter and then cover with cardboard and coffee sacks to basically put a nice blanket to insulate the soil in the garden beds over the winter. So what I'm gonna do is just show you a little bit of what I've done and we're gonna go. Here's a little crib. If you get about a yard cubed, you end up making a really nice compost pile on. What you can see here is when I got going a couple weeks ago. It's hot to the touch already, and if you dig in here, there's a little bit of grass clippings. There's household compost. There's manure from my chickens, and it's just getting going and starting to get warm. What's really critical to realize is that becomes pretty much a living unit. That compost pile, and so I cover it with coffee sacks I covered with a layer of plastic, and then I covered again. This starts to get some southern exposure. It warms up, and it gets nice and warm. Now, if you want to make sure that your garden doesn't become a place where your soil and composting makes and breeds a bunch of scenes, you've got to get some critical temperature and there, and that's why you need at least 30 days of it being over 140 F. You get that. Oh, the weed seeds were killed as well, and all you're getting is golden, nutritious soil so I'm just gonna take a crack at this. Starting out with some lawn clippings, some chicken manure. I've got household compost. I've got a neighbor with a big oak tree and he doesn't know what to do with his leaves and ideo. I turned it into Moshe on my raspberries, and I put it into here. I've got a tree company that drops off tree chip ings. I heat my house with woods. I've got all the ashes out of my wood stove that I'm adding in and all that's gonna get layered together and realize that what makes great soil is some time and some temperature, but most of all, a good ingredient Mex. It's supposed to be like 30 to 1 carbon to nitrogen. See, mostly want dead stuff that's brown and rotted. And you had some living stuff food scraps, grass clippings and weeds and all that together. Oh my goodness, it's magic for your soil. So here we go. Let's build it together, just wrapping up on grow yourself, do it yourself composting in soil. It's really simple. The biggest thing to grab hold of is you're just doing layers because of layers air happening than the microorganisms in the worms, and the heat's gonna transfer through beautifully. Don't just put one thing in, and then another thing you'll see I put grass in at a few times, which is the nitrogen. You want to get layers of a whole variety of things, and it's carbon heavy. So the brown and grey stuff the ashes, the wood chips, the dead leaves, the household compost with coffee grounds and stuff that's all going to be carbon, and the nitrogen will be the weeds and grass clippings, which you do much more sparsely. The third thing to realize is that it's really helpful to get at least a cubic yard and volume. If you get a cubic, you're like a big dice that's a yard by yard by yard that's gonna heat up. It's gonna hold heat. I have friends who do big compost piles for, like a whole restaurants, waste and through the winter, with it freezing and snowing for over a month. They kept the internal composting temperature in their pile over 100 degrees the whole time , so if you get sufficient mass, it will just hold its own, and you'll just keep a rocket on, so do the layers. Lots of carbon with a bit of nitrogen in those layers. Shoot for a cubic yard and it's going to be a beautiful thing. 3. Chapter 10 Making Your Own Fertilizer: so, guys, I can tell now that it's time for some fertilizer in the garden. The starts that we put in many of them that are gonna produce some type of veggie that flowers beforehand is starting to flower. You can see this on the cucumber. You can see this on the pepper plant. You can see this on the tomatoes and you concede on the zucchini. So there's four different veggies here that are gonna flower before they fruit. There's other things here is you can see like this sprouting broccoli. It's not gonna have flowers before it produces broccoli. It'll have flowers after it produces broccoli, but you can see it's past its tertiary leaves. It's clearly got an established route system, and it's ready for fertilizer as well. So based on what we've shown you with the flowers, they're setting for a lot of the veg like tomato and zucchini and cucumber and pepper their flowering. They're getting ready to fruit. They definitely need would do well, and they'll do better production if they have a shot of fertilizer, and the greens are gonna want to produce more so again once they've got a good tertiary leaf system. Those solar panels air out. Then let's deliver some love to the roots as well. I've got a simple four ingredient organic recipe for fertilizer. With all the ingredients here, I've got a scoop to measure it out. It's gonna be four parts of this one part, one part in one part. I'll tell you what the parts are in a moment I've got a been to start up in. It's gonna be a bit dusty and powdery, so you don't want to do it indoors. That's the been all stirred up, and it's bigger than what I need and then a container with the lids that if I don't use it all at once, I can store it. And then I've got a watering can to just deliver that love of fertilizer right to the root systems right away. So just tell you what I have here is that you know what it is that we're up to. So when you look at a bag of fertilizer commercial fertilizer in a store, it'll always have three digits, three digits. They stand for N and P and K, which are off the table of elements and is the nitrogen that's gonna add things that are green and leafy so your plants can get solar panels and sucking energy. That's our alfalfa meal. Our recipe is gonna be four parts alfalfa meal, toe, one part of all the other. So I'm gonna put two parts in now and then two parts in later, so it's easier to blends. That's the end. That's the green. Then you go to the P, the second number in fertilizer and this case, it's gonna be derived from bone meal, which is phosphorus, which helps the routes established so it can take in energy and really get strong. So that's one part of that. I got a little bit of this. I'm gonna put this in next. The third number in your fertilizer recipe is called a K, and in this case, R K is kelp meal. It's gonna liver deliver potassium, and the potassium is gonna help the plant produce flowers and fruit or produce. So, the fruit or what you're actually gonna put in your body and eaten enjoy is from the K. And then the fourth and final ingredient that's in here is not in a fertilizer label because we've done the n and the P in the K it's lime and limes is gonna help make sure that the soil is moving toward the neutral side of things rather than acidified. So there's the lime. So we got the N and the P and the K in they're not gonna have the final two scoops to make up for the four of alfalfa meal. And then it's all together. And you might be able to tell even on the camera that there's, you know, a little bit of dust and powder. It's not crazy if you're outside and not blown around, gonna do a little bit of stir up of that once it's all stirred up. I'm just gonna put it in this little bucket with a lid, and then I can put it away to store it, but first going to deliver some to some of the plants. So you've got all the ingredients stirred up now, and I'm just gonna pour them into this bucket, which should be just the right size for the recipe. I did, and my estimate is this size of a pale that I've put here together when I lifted up Oh, it's probably about four or five kilos. That will be enough fertilizer for this entire season. I'll just deliver it once to each of the plants. Depending on their age, it'll be a different times. And that'll be enough for the whole season of backyard abundance for this entire three bed garden. That's all we're gonna need. So just show you putting it down a little bit, and that'll be it for this part. So in this case here, we've got ah, some sprouting broccoli and some tatsoi growing up in some charred. I would just put a little bit of that around these little guys and a little bit down the middle where the drip plane's gonna push the energy ultimately. But obviously the drip line alone is not gonna get that energy there that I'm just gathering my watering can and just making sure that that fertilizer is going to start to get into the soil and ultimately, the roots to nourish the plant. If you've done that, maybe a bigger handful than what I've done around something like the zucchini earth tomato that are larger plants, you'll have done everything you need. Let's just do one more plant. Okay, so I think that right now this zucchini plant, which does have a bunch of flowers growing on it and a little tiny zucchini just a bit smaller than my finger going here, it's probably the largest plant in the garden. So you're just looking to get a bit of that fertilizer powder around the perimeter of the plant that was a handful. Get some water on that stuff that it's gonna push down to the root system. And here on, we'll just continue drip watering when we do irrigate and that that's just gonna slowly deliver over the growing life of this plant, all the nutrition it needs to have an amazing harvest. There you go. We've done fertilizer, guys. And remember guys regarding fertilizer. There's always hard ways and easy ways to do almost everything in gardening and growing food for yourself. So if buying all these different ingredients from a garden center and mixing up your fertilizer seems like a daunting task, don't be overwhelmed just by a sack of organic fertilizer that's balanced in the N and the P in the K. And put that down. One small sack, probably five k 10 of the most, is going too far more than you need for the whole season. So it's not gonna be expensive infinity mixing or by a whole bunch of ingredients. Don't be intimidated. Just find an easy way to do it. It's all gonna work. 4. Chapter 11 Fall and Winter Planting: Okay, guys, As promised on the day 80 update. Once we pulled out the carrots that were here with the onions and the potatoes that we're here, we're gonna do some full planting, get ready for fall in winter. And I was gonna walk you through that a little bit, and then we're gonna be on the heels of the Day 90 update in a few more days. So I just want to take you through it in the foreground. You can see I've got the trustee fertilizer pail. That's the same batch, same single batch of fertilizer that we mixed up right at the start of planting. And it's just about out, and it's gonna be finished up with our final fall planting and the watering can just getting some starts going. It's a mixed of my own starts and a mix of purchase starts. And in here we've got some red Russian kale and some January king cabbage. And in here we put in some lettuce. I've got some bunching onions. We've got some leaks, and in here I want to show you the technique I'm using for planting some overwintering onions, which are a large variety called WALLAWALLA Everybody loves to say wallawalla so you show you how I set it up and we'll go in a little closer without my hands and face in the picture and I'll talk you through it in a few minutes. You'll be good to go to plant for fall. Okay, so looking at this middle road here, remember, this bed has three drip lines were looking at the middle one where the carrots used to be. I have put in alternately so something on either side of the line at every drip, which is every 30 centimeters, and these will get big. So it's gonna get really squishy in here, which is the goal of retaining moisture and keeping down the weeds, these air cabbage plants on this side and a kale plant on this side. They'd both be considered in the Cabbage Family and then along through here it goes cabbage , kale, cabbage, kale all the way down. And because this is a 12 foot bed, which is about four meters, so there's 12 drips. There's 12 plants wanted every drip, so I got six cabbage up the right hand side and six scale up the left hand side and the beans air just flattering now, and beans put a lot of great nourishment into the soil, so I think they're gonna build it up. I just Sonthi starts into the soil making sure they didn't have only primary but secondary or tertiary leaves. A little bit of the organic fertilizer and we're coming into fall now, so it's cool at night. It's still warm during the day, and they're taking off beautifully, so that's a good look at that. And I'll just get a photo of that and we'll move over to the next row. Here. Toe. Look at what's happening in the lettuce and onion family starts, so on the side of the garden bed that had potatoes before, I have chosen to plant things in the onion family and things in the lettuce family, keeping in mind that potatoes and cabbage family don't do well as back to back plantings. I didn't want to put any kale or cabbage or cauliflower into this bed that had just had potatoes. That was intentional, but anything onion and let us. I decided it would be good, And if you're remembering what I'm remembering, we've had problems in this bed, not this row. But we've had problems in this bed with growing lettuce because of the worms, the wire worms that were in here. So we're gonna come up with a little solution on how toe keep those wire worms at bay. And I'll show you that in little second. But for now, we've got the lettuce here, and we've got some bunching onions and leeks further down. And then I want to show you what's going on in this bed here is well with wallawalla onions . I want to show you what I'm doing here with planting these wall a wall onions I've got I bought a six pack, but in a six pack, each of the six cells has many little onion starts and actually counted them. There's four dozen onions in a three meter section. So rather than individually digging a hole for everyone, I've just dug out a furrow that's about 04 centimetres deep. And in that furrow I've broken apart all the individual onions, and I've given them about golf ball spacings that if they grow his biggest golf balls are a little bigger. They won't bump into their neighbors in doing this I've been ableto really save a lot of work. It only took me a few minutes. And now I'm into the very last little drips of fertilizer from the mix that I made up but the beginning of the season. So this little bit of fertilizer, I'm just gonna dust into this trench and with that fertilizer in there that I'm gonna cover everything up, I'll be doing that all down the row. And when we cover them up like that, they will be ready with a bit of water on them to start growing onions over the winter. And I'll plan on harvesting them in the early spring will have some nice fresh onions, four dozen of them here growing in beside the lettuces and the other things the leak family . So that's many Fiqh. So now I've used up all of my fertilizer without one container of fertilizer was enough for the whole season. I've covered up all of these onions and you can see that I've densely planted on either side of the drip irrigation line. So we just get some moisture on them cause it's a warm day in the foreground. Starting at this tag, we've got leaks that we put in. They'll be harvested through the winter and in the spring and down here, the whole way on the way back is bunching onions. So the bunching onions, the leeks and the onions they'll have no problem with the wire worm that will be completely resistant to wire worm. But as we noted before, the lettuces might have some challenges. So what I'll do now is I will cover up the soil on this bed, and then I'll show you what we're going to do to prevent any wire worms hopefully and do a little trial and error on keeping them down in the lettuce area, but just trying to cover this up again. So no fall weeds can get started. Center moisture can be suppressed. Everything can feel comfy, cozy, tucked in for the winter. It's also gonna keep the soil a little bit warmer for everything that's growing here. So we're gonna do that along the bed, and then we're gonna one more time. Look at our lettuce for a solution on wire worms. Okay, so this role here is almost ready to rock and you'll see that what I'm working on has a few little pink flags attached. We already know that lettuce is not done well in this bed. Before, when we tried a couple rows over in this bed, we know that it likes feeding on lettuce, and we know that it likes the wire. Rooms also like feeding on potatoes. So what I've done has just taken some little tiny potatoes, put them with exposed insides skewered onto a little pink flag as a marker. Dig a tiny hole. Get the potato into the soil because remember the wire rooms air attacking the left us right at the soil line. I'm just driving that through. So I'm just taking a little piece potato doing a little cube action with it. And with that piece of potato like that, just pop it onto a little marker. You could use a stick of what if you want just getting that piece potato at the soil line where I know the wire room likes to feed on the lettuce. Basically, it's like a bait box that I'm putting there. Take this final one here, put it on there, and I'm gonna come back in a couple days. See how the lettuce is doing, of course, because that's were tryingto keep healthy. But see if I will find wire worms on the potato. It's a little bit of an experiment to see if that's a nice way to trap without any chemicals. Now each of my pink flags is a mark of where I've put some potato in the ground and we'll see how it goes so that that is done. I've covered up the soil, everything's watered and we're just going to one last look at this bed and this is ready for winter. Okay, so this bet has gone through a whole season of summer. We're at about day 85 we've planted for winter. We've got all the onion family here, leeks, onions and bunching of onions. We've got the lettuces that hopefully are proof for wire worm by having the little potato bates in them. The kale on the cabbages in the middle, the bush beans, air finishing up in this road. They've got beautiful flowers, and they're just starting to provide their veg, and when they're all done in, probably 30 days or so, will snip off their stocks carefully because there's beats all through their that their inter planet with and the beats will produce and give us great food right through the winter. I'll be back to in a few days for day 90 will be looking at the tomatoes. They're just pumping out right now. And before winter really hits, we're gonna winterize this bed. It looks very ready now the soil is protected, but we're gonna build kind of a little hoop house or in portable greenhouse over top of this bed. It's gonna extend the growing seasons that these things think that it's kind of late summer when it's actually late fall. And then that's gonna cause him to grow way better again in the spring when spring comes. So that's gonna be still to come. So see you soon for day 90 on the harvest that comes at that point 5. Chapter 12 Protecting Your Garden: Okay, guys, welcome back to the backyard Abundance. We're down to two more videos. This one and one more today we're going to do Ah, who post or a row cover over this bed on our final video will be later on putting garlic into the back bed. So did I want to show you how to take this bed and winterize it? Get ready for winter. Now, today is a crazy nice sunny day, but I've just come off two weeks of pounding rain. It's starting to get close to freezing more regularly at night and anything I can do to winterize this bed and insulated a little bit, it's gonna help out. So the main goal is to take a product like this. This is called row cover. Some people professionally call it remain re may and row covers the difference. Doing calling it Kleenex and calling it tissue remain is breathe. Herbal rain can come through it. Light can come through it. The nice thing is, if you have remained on your garden bed, it'll create a bit of a greenhouse effect, but not get super hot like plastic. And when it rains, the water will come through it, so it's very insulating, but it's not sweltering. I find that where I live on the west coast of Canada. Basically, Aiken grow a month later into the winter and start a month earlier in the spring because of Roe cover. Now this beds about four meters long, two of my hand spans. So I've cut off a piece of remade that's wide enough for the bed, and it's as long as three of my hand span, so have about half a meter on one end and half a meter on the other. In world Done, it's gonna be hooped. How am I creating the hoops? Really simple. I'm gonna have pieces of rebar. So it's metal bar, and I've taken a 20 foot piece and cut it into 10 pieces. So each piece is 60 to 80 centimeters, and then over top of those for every two of those were gonna take a piece of PVC pipe. Now this is half inch pipe or 12 mil, and if you buy this in a story as it straight, this one's been used already. If you buy it in the store, it's a 20 foot length where I live and when you cut it into three even pieces, you get pieces like this, and each one fits over a bed that's a bit more than a meter wide. So I'm using these. At each end. The pipe goes over them and the remake cover gets draped over top, and then we'll pin it down on the sides. So I'll go from there and I'll just show you a little bit of what I've done to lay it out. So I took a look at this bed and a little bit in from each end, about 20 centimeters in. I put a flag and every 80 centimeters I put a flag, and that made four even spaces for a total of what are going to be five hoops going over the bed, then it each flag where I've marked it. I'm putting one of these in, and my ideal is to knock them in, not all the way, because the pipes are gonna go over top of them. So if you're still a little lost on what's gonna happen, the pipes are gonna be going over top like this, and that's gonna create the hoop structure. So my flag is just a marker and I got to go down this road and you'll see I'm not putting it straight up and down and putting it slightly in cause the hoops gonna go this way and I'll do a piece of rebar at each of these flags. Spaces. I'll do that right now, and then I'll do one symmetrically across from it, so just watch along. I'll just will probably do this in a little sped up fashion seat enoughto watch it and get bored. He put them in too far. They're gonna be hard to pull it later if you wanna use them like I do as modular pieces and just move them around different places. All you got to do is make sure that the rebar you buy is slightly smaller than the inside of the whole of the PVC pipe. Because the PVC pipe has to fit over top of it. Right now that I've put in the Rebar down that side of the garden, I'm just going roughly across from it. And because the beats on this side are a little closer to the side of the bed than the leaks on that side, I'm kind of asymmetrically building the who posed to be a little bit this side. So I'm just going to keep on going down the bed and roughly across from its buddy, that's gonna hold the other end of the PVC pipe. Just gonna put a few more of these in very quick and easy to put together who post like this. And it doesn't amazing job of behaving like a meaty greenhouse so inexpensive. And if you want to switch where you have it on a different bed at a different time, it takes about 15 minutes to switch. If you have the right pieces already in place, look at that. So we built the structure now, and with all 10 of those pieces on, we're just gonna start putting the PVC over. Okay, so I've got my five pieces of PVC hoop material to go over here. And when you go to put these on, just be careful. That doesn't come up with this map. Your face, you go down on one side and once it's down, someone on that side, you pushed it on the side. Just get it, Move this in a little bit better there. Nice and tight. to the soil that's in there really rigidly and strong, and we'll just keep doing that all the way down. Connected on one side, all the way to the ground, connected on the other side. Just bend it to fit. You see how easy that is, and it's strong. Make sure you don't let go while you're doing it. When you're right here. If you let go, it could come up and give you a pretty good punch in the face, which would be bad for business. You don't do that. The other thing that could hurt is if you go to slide the pipe on the side, that's closest to you, like right here and this runs down and catches your finger. That could hurt as well. So be beware on that as well. Now would you look at that? How gorgeous is that? Little who posted? Look at how quick that was to build it, and now we're just gonna cover it over and pin it down on both sides. Okay, so this is often, I'd say better a two person job than a one person job, but I'm taking the remake cover that's meant to cover the whole bed, and I'm just extending it over the pipes. And what you want to do when you stretch it out is to get it wide enough, said it stretches right from one side of the bed to the other side of the bed and that you can pin it down and when it's pinned down, tighter but not super tight is generally better. This is double folded underneath itself, which is why it's taking a little bit to pull out and look at that. Now we're rocking it. This comes down like this. I'm just making sure, just kind of like when you're pulling, betting over a bed or a tablecloth over a table. You wanna have a similar amount of material on both sides and at both ends right now, I just have to pull it this way a little bit like that, and then we're ready to pin it down, and we're good for winter, so you can use anything you want to pin that renay down. Rocks and bricks work fine. I find something long and heavy works better than just something that goes in one spot, and so I have pieces of wood. I have pieces of metal. Small pets that don't move quickly might work a piece of lumber piece of firewood to break anything like that on. All you want to do is just kind of tuck things in, so that if it's really windy where you live and I do get wins here in winter that are about 70 80 kilometers, that this is gonna hold down nicely and have enough tensions to the window just kind of shoot over top of it. So I'm just gonna pin that down with the cameras rolling, and then we'll see how it looks. Remake cloth does snag and tear if you have sharp things. If you have a piece of wood with slivers in it or with nails or screws in it, that'll be likely to tear your remain. I look at this. Rain will go through it, but the window pass over it. That's kind of the perfect way. You want it brilliant, looking out incredibly easy. That was so. We've got a row with onions and lettuce. We've got a row in the middle with cabbages and kale and on this side with beats and a bit of charred and all of it is in there now, and it's gonna be much warmer and more insulated from the elements than all the other beds . It'll have more warmth. It will still get all the moisture, and it'll extend our growing season, and things will take off in the springtime earlier in there as well. So there's a hoop house or a portable greenhouse or a row cover whatever you wish to call it, and all we did was use pieces of rebar piece of PVC pipe that went over top of them at a piece of road cover on top. So simple, so inexpensive, quick to dio completely transforms and extends the life of your growing season in your garden. Keep rocking the backyard abundance, yeah. 6. Day 70 Celebration: Oh, everybody, it's a great day. It's day 70. It's our seventh update since we planted seeds and starts. I want you to see sunflowers that air three meters tall, covered in bees and getting ready to be covered in birds and soda. And I are celebrating the harvest. These were the things I've just picked today to show you where you're at if you've planted 70 days ago like I did and we'll just take a look at it, talk about it a bit, take a few little pokes through the garden and celebrate the abundance. It's amazing. Let's get in close on this and take a better look. Okay, so where do we start? This is exciting. So I just want to remind you this is Day 70 and this is all picked just this morning, just to give you a sense of where things are at. So let's start with the potatoes. I popped him on a scale you can see with the bull included. It's over £7. Take a look at the size of that potato. Is that not incredible? This is to plants. So this is to plants yielding £7 so a bit over £3 per plant. And remember, we started with each plant just being one small potato. Maybe Gulf Balto Hardball size so to potatoes as seed gave us that the carrots that 70 days air Looking like this, this one's pretty gnarly. It'll taste just as good as all the others. There is probably the biggest ones in there. They're coming out at 15 18 centimeters long. Lots of greens as well. The beats have now sized up beautifully looking amazing and the pole beans at Day 70. Look at the pole beans. As long as you keep picking pole beans, they'll keep on flowering for you and keep producing. So there's gonna be probably weeks of pole beans like that. And remember, we planted only one cucumber plant, and I picked all these just today because I was letting them grow for a little while so I could take this video today. Now these are the straightest ones on the top. I think there's what 456789 10 11 to 13 cucumbers today, and I've been picking on a regular basis, and then finally, the cantaloupes air sizing up to look like that. I don't think they're ripe yet, but we're gonna take a peek because there's something I want to show you on the cantaloupe plant that is a little bit of a concern, and so we might need to harvest sooner than planned. We're looking for white seeds inside. They are white now. It's not gonna look like a store bought. Doesn't smell sweet yet, so I don't think it's quite ripe. But there's mushiness and their seeds that are getting ready, so it's very close to being right. So 70 days in, that's what produce is looking like. An Every day I've been giving away and harvesting from this garden. It just keeps getting better. So, uh, just checking in on this first bed Now, as we cruise around the garden, this is the cucumber plant that we built the little wooden trellis for. There's some cucumbers that are kind of darling up there, getting kind of small and tiny like that, so they're not gonna grow very straight, so I pick them off right away and on the plant. Now there's probably about 20 or 30 smallish Cuc's that air about this long, and I've just showed you of the 13 Cuc's we picked today how big they do get cause they're long English, right? So this plant, Scott promised to grow a lot more. But there's a little problem, as I alluded to earlier on the cantaloupe cantaloupe being very related to cucumber in terms of disease and susceptibility. There's a little problem going to show you that so we'll see how much longer the life span is for this cucumber, the largest sunflowers in the foreground. So I'm just gonna pull it back a bit so you can see the extent of the sunflowers in the rear. Do you see the size of these sunflowers and how many there are behind me? There's honeybees on every single one of them, and now the pole beans air, not just growing on the polls there, also growing onto all the sunflower, so offer every sunflower plant. It's acting like a beanpole, and I'm picking beans off the sunflower, so this is epically crazy. And remember, this is the sun, the tallest plants. So there at the north end of the gardens that the sun is on the other side of this, so the shorter plants, like the beats and the tomatoes air on the other side. Let's take a look. The other side of the bed. Okay, so now we're on the other side of the same bed, the sunflowers and beans, or just behind me. I could actually reach through and pick beans from here. As promised on the Day 60 update, the previous one, I was gonna tie back the tomatoes, which was a bit of a chore. Some of the leaves air not doing great because they got broken off. So you can see there's the odd deadly fund, the tomatoes, but for the most part, wow, the plants are getting air through them. Now they're stretched up in steak, and that's providing more like to the beats down below. So the beats continue to size up. And I've already showing you how big some of the beats air that air growing right here There is that I'm not gonna exaggerate at least 100 tomatoes on the four plants we put in here. Some of them are very sizable. Some of them are more cherry tomato variety. We haven't picked any ripe tomatoes yet. I'm hoping by day 80 our next update that we're going to see some tomatoes coming in as well, so that is pretty amazing. And just further down, I'm gonna grab, take a look at the peppers as well, and then we'll move on to the next bed. So still in the same bed. One of the things I'd for gotten to pick for the intro of the video was a right pepper. So look how beautiful that pepper is. There's two more peppers that air nicely coming along on this plant. And I've got at least three nice flowers that could still set fruit. So lots of good things going on. And then all through this bed, still cucumbers and beans growing. We're going to cruise on to some more beds and take looking at the abundance. This is the spot right here where I uprooted to potato plants to pick the seven or so pounds of potatoes. What I want to show you is that as soon as I harvested the potatoes out of the soil, I covered it. Remember, soil is sacred, and the more protected the soil is, the happier it'll be the more abundant, vigorous and healthy it'll be. So as a result, there's gonna be no weeds, and it's gonna keep in the moisture at the same time. So there's many more potato plants cruising down here, and we'll just cover up as we harvest. So I'm on the other side of the bed that has the potatoes and potatoes air just over here, out of reach. And remember, there's carrots and onions in the center, and I showed you the carrots that we picked out of here. And then this road that's closest to me is what we tried to grow greens in, and the wire worm obliterated everything. So we've planted some bush beans, which are taking off great, and they're probably gonna flower in the next day or two. And we planted some other scenes that we weren't sure if they were charter beats. They look like they're beats and they're beautiful. And, crazily enough, some volunteer chart came up a swell. I want you to take a look at the size of these chard. Leaves are their amazing, but I just wanted you to see what I did with the beets that are growing here as I went through and I thinned them. So the's air, tiny little beats that we're taking off, but they were a little too tightly spaced, which is always great. Plant a little tight and then thin them out. These greens are good for salads, cooked or raw, and chickens love them if you have chickens as well. And now the beats are all thin. So everything's going to size up because this is Day 70 and removing towards the close of the hot growing season where I live and beats are great with cool weather. We've got about 30 40 more days of warmish, but it's cooling down at night weather. The beats will size up really well, and they can stay in the ground for most of the winter if I have straw or sawdust or coffee sacks around them, and I'll just pick beats as I need them, probably through the January or so definitely up to Christmas. So that's what's going on in this bed. The marigolds look amazing in the foreground, and I should just show you the onions have been beautiful. Now this is a kind of a red shallot. It doesn't get very big, but you're able to use the green at the top and also the red at the bottom. So they're beautiful color and they've kept the carrots completely disease free. Cause again. Planting carrots and onions together goes great, so that center row is also beautiful. And check this out. Ah, volunteer Tomato plant volunteer, meaning I didn't plant it here. It just elected to grow itself. It's flowering and putting tomatoes out really soon, so it's just gonna grow up in the middle of everything, and we'll get some tomatoes in with the carrots and onions as well. Now let's look at the final bed that's in the backyard. Abundance on day 70. Okay, so check out. This is the final of the three beds to look at. It was tatsoi and charred growing here. And then there's a lot of broccoli and cabbage growing and then herbs on the fireside and that the end is the cantaloupe in the zucchini. Last time we checked in 10 days ago, all Hello, honey bee. It's just visiting right here on the flowers. Last time we checked in the tat, so I was just starting to flower and grow tiny seed pods. And now you can see on each of these fronds Well, on this one here alone there's about 30 seedpods. I just want to bring one in close to the camera. This is gonna have about 10 seeds inside it. Just that one little frond. There will be thousands and thousands of tatsoi seeds, and I've just been pulling up the tatsoi as it finishes being harvest herbal, and I've let 12 plants go to seed. So as a result, there's lots of forage for the honeybees to hit, and then the seeds off of just one healthy branch like this will be enough to grow. You know, a whole garden bed of tatsoi, next season's while a fresh seed to plant and to share for next season as well At the back , we're gonna now take a look at a few of things. Look at the size of the leaves here that are on the cabbage. This a broccoli plants sprouting broccoli. Each one of them is, you know, more than a meter around, so the size is crazy, so it looked like a sparsely planted bed a day 10 2030 now looks overwhelmingly, almost over planted. It's so dense, it's crazy. What's going on and it's super healthy here. The greens are gonna be amazing into the winter in this bed. Let's just take the camera down looking. Ah, the bikini. The cantaloupe in the herbs. Now this is inside the zucchini plant, and they're still some zucchini, setting out mostly male flowers. Air coming on. But there are some thief female flowers producing down in the bottom left. But here's the concern that's visible now, and this leaf is the most obvious example of it. This is going to spread, and it's a disease called powdery mildew. I'm not going to spray a fungus side onto my plants, and it's going to try to spread, whether it's raining or dryer, whatever. Now, at this point, it's it's coming on quick. It's going to spread onto the cantaloupe and possibly onto the cucumber as well. The cantaloupe, its immediate neighbor and some of the stocks are starting to go a little funky. I will give this plant just a few more days, and I'll decide then to uproot it or to harvest more zucchini because there's probably 8 10 more zucchini that could be harvested. But because of powdery mildew, it might be time to just uproot. The plant will decide as things go along. Now let's take a look at the cantaloupe. So here we are at the cantaloupe plant were a little earlier. We picked up this one and cut it in half. Inside this cantaloupe plant, I've got 123456789 and a little guy That's baseball size 10 cantaloupes growing in here. But as you can see, like on the zucchini, we've got a powdery mildew coming on. So the plant's gonna go into decline freefall really quickly. I'm hoping for 10 more days of life to come from the plant to ripen up the cantaloupe, at which point it will be excellent timing. Toe uproot. Both zucchini and cantaloupe give more space to the herbs, the broccoli in the cabbage, that air coming on in here. I'm just hoping we get enough time now to just note when I realized that I had a good bunch of solid size cantaloupes here, what I did is I started going around on the plant and any place where there was little flowers indicating a desire to grow more, I plucked them off. I probably pulled off 100 flowers like that all off the stem ends of the most extreme out reaching tendrils of the plant. And in so doing, I gave the plan to message. You can't grow anymore. Cantaloupes. Put all your love and your energy into these Big East cause in my mind, if I get 7 to 10 cantaloupes off one plant that's more than abundant. Trying to grow 100 is not gonna work. They'll all just underperform. So that's a great way to just push the energy into the good ones. You could do that with pumpkins or any type of melon. I've just turned the camera slightly over from the cantaloupe now and rent herbs and back looking with the other side of the cauliflower, the sprouting broccoli, the cabbage and everything. It's pretty incredible to see what the herbs have done. Remember these little guys? This is all oregano here. You could do Greek a roasted potatoes until the cows come home and you'd be good. This tiny little time plant that came from a cutting that I had done of one of my other time bushes that I rescued from a dumpster at a grocery store is huge. I've got all these. Try of clusters. The parsley is massive, the rosemary plants that we put in together. Now I can grab pieces like this, which is about how big the Platt was when we started, and they're just growing in abundance. But what's crazy is how wash everything is here. Look at the size of the chard leaves in here, and when you pull a charred leaf like that, all it does is create more opportunity for photosynthesis for other plants in here. Digging around in here, there's heads sprouting on everything. I've got cauliflower coming up that's about as big as my hands around. I'm gonna wait till it doubles in size before I harvest. Each time I get one of those plants and it's done, I'm gonna cut the plant off at the soil. I'm not gonna uproot it. But by cutting it off the soil, the roots will decompose and put more nutrition back into the soil where they came from. And it'll free up more space for neighbouring plants adjacent to grow and spread out their solar panels. So the abundance now of herbs and of greens is just miraculous. You can see the sunflowers behind me. This is Day 70. This is crazy backyard abundance. Thanks for being along for the ride day. He might even be better. 7. Day 80 Celebration Pt 1: is just a little bit. Earlier this year, I was sitting this exact same spot, but it was weeds and grass. There was no guard, no raised beds, no deer proof fencing around me. And I launched this idea on video of getting people to join me on backyard abundance will. Today is our eighth update. That's update number eight. It's 80 days since all the seeds and starts went in. It's amazing every time I think this update will have the most to show on abundance, and I think it's true again. This time there's gonna be more to show in abundance than ever before. We're going to more work in this guard in this garden bed here than any of the others, because we're gonna be taking some rows of harvesting out completely and re planting for winter and fall and the other beds air just rocking. It's amazing stuff that I thought what might not work for the next 10 days totally has blown my mind. Blowing my expectations. I keep getting amazed. Okay, let's jump into Day 80 update around backyard abundance for a day 80 update. Let's just start off at the zucchini plant. The gold rush variety zucchini plant. If you remember last update, there was this powdery mildew coming up in the leaves, and most all of the leaves looked like this, and I was kind of just wondering out loud. Should I just pull it out so it doesn't spread to the cucumber or spread further to the cantaloupe? But I decided against it. Well, you can see that almost all the powdery mildew type leaves they're totally gone. I didn't cut them off, either, and they've been completely replaced with new foliage, so there's all sorts of break greenness going on. If you look over here, you can actually see new fruit that's coming on, and there's probably H new zucchini, that air forming on the plant. And just right now, as I went to camera roll, I harvested these four little beauties as well. So the zucchini plant totally overcame the powdery mildew, I believe just from having good nourishment, and it wasn't too far gone. It was worth letting it go another 10 days, and I think it's gonna go another 10 days and keep on rockin. Let's go around the candle open, see how it's faring. Okay, so here we are at the cantaloupe, and, as you can see, the cantaloupes air still maturing. Some of them are now like, uh, the size of a 10 pin bowling ball. There's a few hidden away in the back under the leaves here, but there are 123456789 10 plus a little tiny guy. 11. Holding on Now all the leaves looked like this at the 10 day ago update, and I told you I had pinched all the leaves off or sorry all the blossoms off to try to prevent any more fruit trying to form well, every place that I pinched off blossoms, new green leaves have grown, so it's got new, healthy solar panels, even though the old solar panels seemed to be dying. There's all this healthy new green growth, so it's still pulling in nourishment, and the cantaloupes are increasing in size and ripeness. I'm waiting for the bottoms to become yellow or discolored to know that their ripening up. I think we're going to give them another 10 days, and we'll see where we're at, just right up above the cantaloupe plants now in the same bed just want you to see the size of the leaves that are coming on with all the different cabbage family plants that are growing here. It's been absolutely amazing to see what's happening, and the herbs seemed to be okay to be in the shadow of all this. So every day for my omelets and different dishes that I'm making, I'm harvesting green onions, oregano. I've got lamb in the oven right now with fresh herbs. From here, there's all sorts of good things going on. I've got unlimited kale, and I've been giving away bags of food out of this bed alone just this week. So I'll take your onto the other side to just show you what's happening with the tats away that's going to seed as well. And yeah, I got another little surprise for you there, too. So here's the tatsoi plant that's going to seed, and you can see now the seed pods air really fattening up there. Probably about 10 seeds in each seed pud, which means 10 new plants could grow from each seed pod, and I want you to remember this is just one. No, its two plants that I've saved and everything else. I've just fed to the chickens or composted now, So I do harvest a bit still for, like, some egg dishes in the morning. So thousands of potential plants from just saving the seeds from two tatsoi plants. And now I just want to go right here. I think I'm still gonna be in camera and show you what I just found. That's been growing here. I've got a little knife and I'm just gonna cruise in here, do a little harvesting action and check this out. Donna, it's Mr Collie Flower. Just pull off these surrounding leaves and last update. A day 70. This collie flower was just starting to form. It was the size of my fist. So just as a heads up, don't be too quick to harvest things that Aaron this plant family because things like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower could surprise you. This honestly was smaller than my fist 10 days ago. And now look at how big of a size of organic broccoli we've got here. So now with that plant, I'm gonna cut the whole plant off at the root with a knife. But I believe all the roots in the soil so all of their nourishment as they rotten, die or grow a new plant, whichever way it goes is going to be beneficial to the soil. And that will give more room for other things to grow as well. So we're not looking at this bed. Let's go a little bit behind me, where the beans and the tomatoes and the sunflowers and the beats are. Wait a second before we go to the bed behind me. It just struck me this plant that I just harvested this collie flower from This was my little start that I had started from seed this spring. And when I planted that planet was at the far end of this bed and remember it head mites on it and I just spray a little bit of a soap solution on the mites. And I wasn't sure at first whether that plant would survive or not. Well, that plant now has given us this big, beautiful cauliflowers. That little bit of past control early on in the season has yielded us at day 80 this gorgeous cauliflower head. Now let's move on to the next bed. Okay? We're at the bad just behind that I was pointing to over my shoulder a moment ago. The tomatoes air rocking. We've had a bunch of cool days, or it was a little bit foggy and misty. It felt like winter was hitting, and now it's sunny. It's warmed up again, and I think that was a much enough of a shock to the system of the tomatoes that they know it's time to ripen up. This is my first day that I've got a tomato with color on it, and there are a lot of tomatoes. Check out these tomatoes. They're not totally ripe yet, but I'll just pick one to show you when they ripen their green. Right now, when they ripen, they're gonna turn totally purple. So how cool is that? A plant with all purple tomatoes, the sunflowers and beans air living in perfect harmony just behind the tomatoes were picking beans every day. I've been giving lunch bag size servings of them to friends and family and reading beans every second day as a family as well. So the beans and the sunflowers air rocking really well. It's hard to get into all those vines and take images of it or videos of it. But I'm gonna take you to the other end of this bed now and look at the cucumber plant, which to date has given us about 25 cucumbers and we'll see what's there now. Okay, So I grabbed just some garden shears or scissors and I went into the cucumber plant just now. This is like three minutes since I signed off on the last part of the video and I got 123456 78 more, I think at day 70 what do we get? 14. In one day 13 or 14? One day I found a few more after head film that. And since that time I think I've given six away. It's were over 30 cucumbers. Now I think off of this one plant. So the little wooden trellis was magic because it has stayed within an area that's one meter wide and half a meter deep. And yet it's grown out like close to 30 cucumbers. So, like, look at this. This is just from today and my experience has been amazing with each of them in terms of quality. A little tip for you. You get a cucumber they might be funny shape. They all taste good if you take a knife and you cut off just the tip of the stam and on the flower end, and you just put a little bit of salt, dab the cucumber into the salt and let it sit about two or three minutes and then just take the end that you cut off and rub it over the salt that generally takes it any bitter flavor from garden grown cucumbers. This is totally organic. No chemicals. Nothing was added other than just organic fertilizer to the soil. And if you just cut that tip off, rubbing insult, give it 2 to 3 minutes and then rub it a bit. I have found no bitterness in any of these long English CUC's this year, so go cucumber. You can see also hear the peppers that harvested a few peppers off this plant already, and this one's got a few more and two or three more little ones still coming on. So this bed is amazing, doing fantastic. There's a sunflower back there that's bigger than a large pizza. It's gotta have about five kilos of sunflowers on its There's gonna be a lot of winter feed for the birds there. So we're gonna go to the final bed now, which we're going to start turning into a winter bed. We're going to be a potato and cared harvest and start putting in items that grow through fall and winter. Let's keep Day 80 going. 8. Day 80 Celebration Pt 2: So just behind you here in this road that was carrots and onions. I just harvested them. There's a good variety of carrots coming out of here that look beautiful. Some of them are really big, others a bit smaller and some beautiful little purple cooking onions and shallots that have come out as well so they'll get washed up. And now, right here on my left, There's just a few more potatoes to harvest. And then that rose down and we're ready to start looking at full planting in this side of the bed. Okay, We've harvested the carrots, and now we're doing The potatoes that are right next to the carats were right here in this area with the onions. And now we're doing potatoes. I want you to see this just because I've been blown away. I've harvested about half the potatoes in this road. Now, I had a friend in his daughter's over this week, and we picked the potatoes from one plant and there was £6 of potatoes. So if we get a harvest like that, another plant, this bull won't hold what wouldn't plant provides. So I just want you to be here for this. Let's see what we get. Uh, okay. You never know. Right? So there's one. They're in there. Good. Okay, so we've pulled up the top, but now we're not sure what's down below. Right? So I started digging up. You see in these. Okay. Get those right in there. Okay. This is what I'm talking about is when you get a potato that's that size. Do you see how big that IHS. Oh, just see. You see, because we talked about wire worm in this bed affecting the lettuce. There's a wire worm right there and it's actually coming out of the potato. D C it right there. They're pulled him out. That's him, that's aware. Were so he's making little holding potatoes. That's not gonna make the potatoes bad. They're still gonna taste great. But that's what's been killing the lettuce in the same bed. And I've got a plan for something we're gonna do here that's gonna be useful in the future for getting rid of these wire worms as well. But let's not get too sidetracked and ah, see, here there's another potato like this is just so cool. And when I get under this coffee sack that's here. That's the thing that surprises me because the drip lines actually down there. Look, another two. So just so you're keeping track of the bull here, how the weather is a bit weird, the sons of bit weird, but that's what's going on. I'm just gonna seems like a this point. A day 80. There's no little potatoes. There are biggies, Okay? Just dig a few more times here with my hand to see that I got all or most of them pretty shocking. Okay, so I might be into the adjacent a potato plant now, so that's from picking that plant, and you can see how hefty that is. I'm actually gonna get my scale, cause I just love seeing how much there is. One second. I'll be right back. See what this one does hear. Oh, my goodness. So it's coming in at £8 with the bull included, so there's, like, 3.5 kilos of potatoes in that I'm just gonna pick the rest of these and we'll just keep motoring along. Here we go. Okay. We'll just pick him on its you. We get there is a charred plant here we're gonna let the roots of the charred plant stay, and we're just gonna harvest food of the charred. I'll just put all the remaining potatoes upon this sack here so we can see them all. And we can have, you know, like a little victory dances and stuff like that, because it's pretty exciting. Toe Hurvitz, potatoes. You realize there's only, like, an exposure here of 30 centimeters of soil and on a 12 foot long bed, this is like a four meter long bed. We're gonna end up having had 12 plants that probably will have produced between, Ah, 25 to 30 kilos of potatoes. Pretty incredible. I think there's one or two final plants here. Day 80 Harvest. And then we'll be wrapping up our day t harvest on by the next video, which will be before the Day 90 harvest. We're gonna be talking about planting our winter veggies in this same bed in the same locations that's gonna get super excited. I'm just gonna move this shared out of the way a bit more so you guys can see a bit better All the potatoes coming out of here. I should have done a biggest potato contest in this road because there's been so many huge ones. So it's been five minutes since we harvested all the potatoes here, and what I want to do immediately is cover the soil and protect it. The soil, the sunlight on the water are the keys to getting all these seeds to produce this amazing, abundant organic harvest. The soil is our biggest ally and all this adventure, and we have an incredible amount of ability to control. Um, how well it does so I don't want it to be stepped on, if at all possible. I don't want it to be cultivated excessively. I don't want it to be exposed to the sun shine. I want it to be totally cuddled and nestled into a Z. Many coverings as possible is that it can always be in a recovering restorative mode to provide more health and nutrition. Do you guys remember what I told you at the beginning? Every time I come to another 10 day update, I think this is gonna be the best update. There's no way we can get more next time, and then we get more next time. Like this is charged that I harvested today and none of this was planted. This is all volunteer chart That was either in the carrot row or in the potato row. And it just grew up from See that got moved around by bugs or birds or something like that . Well, there's so much chart here, it's crazy. Now you look at the potatoes. There's like seven or eight kilos of potatoes here. And then you look into here and we've got the huge head of cauliflower, all the cucumber, zucchini, all the purple onions and all the carrots. Day 80 rock your world. Now we're gonna get ready to plant fall things in here. So between now and a 80 our next update at day 90 I'm gonna come in here. I'll video it, of course, and will plant some great things they're gonna last through the fall and hopefully into the winter to keep on feeding the family and get the most abundant set of your backyard. The other thing to note is that just over here on your left, that's the road that was so difficult to grow lettuce in and you'll see its lush right now because it's growing beats that we finned last video and a whole bunch of beans which are now flowering. So I'm gonna have a whole bunch of bush beans. They're stretching out about a meter, but they don't want to climb so much. They just kind of want a vine around. That's gonna be perfect. Will probably be getting some baby beans by day 90. It keeps on getting better. Thanks for watching guys. I hope you're inspired. The planting between now and a nanny is gonna be amazing. And who knows, Maybe day, nineties, even gonna be more abundant. The day 80. And this is a lot of food until next time.
