from what i experienced growing watermelons vertical is rather a challenge as some of the melons can grow quite large and can weigh very heavy e.g. one melon of mine weighed at a whopping 20kg

i use and would definitely opt for larry halls concept in a small area and a perhaps recommend a vertical stacked rain gutter (self watering system) at her front yard to stop those pests/mammals from eating her crops.

you will also need to build some sort of shade cloth cover frame over your spinach to stop them from bolting or even better DOUBLE up your containers to keep the roots a zone or two cooler to stop the potting mix overheating and causing bolt.

I started to use and recommend fabric pots as they dont boil the soil like the plastic pots do, as the fabric allows the soil to breath and assist in air-pruning the roots, keeps the soil cooler and allows the roots to uptake the required nutrients & water much easier. Another advantage is that This also keeps microbial activity alot more active/alive opposed to the very hot environment thats created inside of the plastic pots as this reduces or kills off more microbial life.

Also bear in mind when purchasing bags of potting soil frim the nursery is to avoid the ones on the top of the pellets or the bags that have been kept in direct sunlight as the heat from the sun would have boiled the contents including the microbial life inside the bag - not good - as you will end up with somewhat useless expensive dead soil that you may have to spend extra time and money by using compost teas to rejuvenate the soil all over again.

Now to look for specials on fabric bags or I may go back to using cheap fabric shopping bags. Mind you they did the job well although they have become very brittle 😊

Howd'y all

My superhot seedlings update. 

Majority of the seeds germinated within 3 weeks of planting.

The ones seeded into the jiffy pellets and left on the media player germinated within 2 weeks so i guess the nice heat from the boxes forced them to germinate MUCH faster ( https://plus.google.com/108666599560731911299/posts/4ihHbvZXJWJ )

the seedlings in the jiffy pellets sprouted so fast and turned out abit too spindly as they where searching for light. I wonder how interestingly they will grow.

At this stage, i have them placed under fluro lights in the shed where its nice and warm as our weather pattern has gone a little crazy over here in western australia (cold and wet).

Ill be adding hydroponic solution and be carrying out the same project as Khang Starr did with his peppers: ( https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLPq8JWQbWhAmVMdw8iP3lysqgEZEbryy )

Special thanks to Rob Gordon ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/115539242077693864938/about ) for supplying the seeds

Pic 6&7 are cuttings that where taken from my Trinidad Butch T, Ghost and Habanero and placed into the bottles on the 22-3-15, so i gather they must have taken, not sure...

The ones I grew a couple years ago, if I scrape the seeds out, I can put a medium sized pepper into a serving or two.

+Rob Gordon​ yeah this one has definitely surprised me with the heat. I'll be safe to say that it's definitely been cross pollinated. 

Also has a nice fruity flavor perhaps from the Scorpion side as i found the Scorpion very fruity in taste

Just a update on germinating my savina and red habernero chilli seeds ( like to extend my thanks to rob gordon for providing the seeds 👍) using alternative seed heating concept...well it works!

I decided to use my foxtel and my media player as the heating matts as they produce heat ( i call these the vampire compliance as they still draw electricity even on standby).

So what I've learnt here is that you don't have to spend $ on accessories as such when you have them lying around doing nothing 😊

Seeds placed into bags : 22-3-15 and first sign of seed germination in 7 days

Ghost chilli in jiffy pallet seeded 25 3 15 so nothing as yet

Got my hands on some elephant garlic which I will try to grow for the first time in the front yard.

I'll will be chilling these first in the fridge as we don't get that winter cold snap/chill that the garlic really needs. So ill leave them in the fridge for about 3 weeks and then plant them out as this will give the spot I chose to mature or settle in before planting these guys.

Does garlic require any special voodoo fertilizer I.e sulphur etc to grow healthy.

I've dumped about 150 liters of sheep manure and going to put a thick layer of half decent mushroom compost (not a good quality as it contains alot of wood chips - got ripped of on this load) that ive mixed in alot of coffee grinds

I read to plant Garlic on the shortest day and harvest on the longest day of the year.

A total of 7.5 KG of capsicums harveated and chopped up from my self watering system today.

All capsicums where full of juice and healthy.!

So that makes it to 6 harvests from the same plants. But on the flip side, more then half of the setup
being so root bound, majority of the fruits where between large to small (more small)... but hey who's complaining!

So I can say that the self watering system does work as advertised

+tolga erok Same here, the daytime temperatures are good, but the nights may hamper the pods. It has definitely gotten cooler, earlier this year.

Sure you can. You could also snip some cuts and plant them. I usually put my cuts in a jar with de-chlorinated water and just a bit of compost tea for a day or two, and plant them as soon as I see some root growth.

Does anyone know how Disney grows their peppers like this?

Obviously they must be using hydroponic solution? ????????
 
This is how Disney's "Living with the Land" does Carolina Reapers. Wish I could jump out of the boat to harvest a few 👍
