Well it is the weekend and got more time to work on starting my garden. I have 6x12 for 72 cell starter trays. In all but the first tray, All plants are planted in rows of 6 plants each. The first tray is 18 plants each as I love tomatoes. Now have the following planted for my Spring Crops that i will start harvesting around the 1st week of April, depending on weather etc.

Tray 1: Tomatoes Rutgers, Tomatoes Large Red Cherry, Tomatoes San Marzano, Tomatoes Beefsteak

Tray 2: Squash Early Yellow,Green Arrow Pea,Cherokee Wax (Yellow Bush),Green Bean Harvester,Green Bean Kentucky Wonder,Cucumber National Pickling,Squash Green Zucchini,Pea Dwarf Gray Sugar,Tomatillo,Watermelon Crimson Sweet,Watermelon Sugar Baby,Cantaloupe

Tray 3: Broccoli,Cauliflower,Swiss Chard,Lettuce Green Salad Bowl,Lettuce Parris Island Cos,Cilantro,Lettuce Black Seeded Simpson,Lettuce Grand Rapids Leaf,Lettuce Iceberg, Spinach New Zealand,Cabbage Early Golden Acre

The first tray I had time to plant on monday night, and when I woke up this morning was already sprouting.

So far 35 dollars invest with seed trays and seeds. Next I will be making the frame work for the garden on the deck. And transplanting the first of the tomatoes to it in a few weeks. Last year due to weather and work I only harvested for about 3 months. This I should be starting to harvest vegtables in April all the way till November with some of the crop able to be put up for over the winter. The plan is to continously reuse the starter trays in order to have a much larger crop harvest this year in a much smaller area.

Still need to get around to the herb garden and figure out how many onions and garlic cloves I am gonna plant. And prep for the ones that can't be transplanted as easy. Like radish, carrots and corn. Thinking about using a kid pool for rice.....

Thoughts and Idea's?

Drum set is about done, I have made robots, controllers for pc's, physical interaction devices. Its time for something that challenges me. My inner genuis is screaming for a challenge, everything I though would be "hard" just took extra time to make look good. Someone challenge me. I live for it. A piece of technology you think should exist that don't,  I will make it for you.

Think I might sit down and do a menu for an entire month's worth of meals. Included will be the nutritional value etc. of everything. Followed with a "Normal Menu". Then the cost factor included.

I figure everyone can "cook". But some of the recipes will be for those that have no issues taking small game and hunting. You would be able to substitute store bought meat in all the recipes.

If I can share 1 recipe with the world that makes a difference cool. But mainly its about me eating better and having a healthier lifestyle. Mind you I eat very healthy now. But Valerie and I were discussing ways to improve it. Starting with stop buying meat that has hormones in it. And removing gluten from our diet.

I will never be vegan but I enjoy eating. So why not making it as healthy as possible with as much flavor as I can?

After our move to North Caroline is complete I will begin the process of learning to make cheese. I will outline a few things during that time I guess.


Anyways thoughts, ideas and suggestions are welcome.

There are some nice online meal planners that do a good job of organizing all your meals and tracking calories and nutrition. I used one - can't find it again - a few years ago to get myself to 100 percent or more of all the nutrients in the USRDA. It's nice to use a tool like that, because while it's easy to see if you're getting enough calcium, it's hard to know if you're getting enough B5, or copper, or whatever. If I can figure out which one I was using, I'll pass it along.
