Hey, it doesn't take much space to grow some of the most delicious things you've ever eaten in your life. I'm crazy about blueberries. Look at all these blueberries. And guess what They're growing in containers.
I have 5 containers of blueberries here, 3 different varieties. And look at the fruit set. I'm giving them a little feed. I fertilized them just as they were coming out of their winter slumber. But I'm giving them just a little bit more, as these blueberries began to ripen. You see, about a month and a half ago they started swelling, or the buds did. And you can see these beautiful flowers. And then the honey bees showed up and they started pollenating. And what you have to have to produce blueberries like this isyou need.
At least varieties that flower at the same time, so you get that cross pollination going on. And what I like to do is make sure I plant them in large containers, and I set them down in saucers. And I got a drip irrigation system here. This keeps the soil consistently moist. And you can see just how well they're producing. In the fall, the foliage on these plants, well, it's just outstanding. They're beautiful plants. Hey, in my fruit production, in this little space, doesn't just stop here. Come on over here, let me show you. Now take a.
Look at this big guy. This is a fig. It's actually a Brown Turkey Fig. And I don't bring these in in the winter, even though you might think that's such an Italian thing to have. Actually, I got the idea of growing them in containers on a trip to Italy, where I was sitting out at a restaurant in a little patio area, and they had big pots of figs. And it was really beautiful. But just look at all the fruit on this fig tree, it's just fantastic. Now, as I said, this one's Brown Turkey. And I don't have to take these containers in during.
The winter. There are some varieties that can really take much colder temperatures. For instance, there's one called Chicago Hearty that is hearty up to Zone 5Chicagoand it can take temperatures as low as zero. Now, I wouldn't say it would survive in a container exposed like this, but it would in the ground. But anyway, it just looks great as a landscape plant. And just look at all these gorgeous figs. Hey, if you're enjoying these segments on how to grow some of your own food in the tiniest places, tell a friend about them.

Music Cutandcomeagain salad greens are simply salads that can be cut repeatedly to give multiple harvests. They're quick to grow, don't take up too much room, and they're totally delicious! Here's how to grow them. You'll need goodquality potting soil, some seeds and of course a container with drainage holes. Quirky yet attractive alternatives to traditional pots include old watering cans, galvanized troughs, or repurposed wooden boxes. If your chosen container it doesn't have any drainage holes, make some. Suitable salad greens for the cutandcomeagain treatment include any of the looseleaf or mesclun blends, which may contain salads such as.
Lettuce, endive, and arugula or rocket. Fill your container with potting soil up to an inch or 2cm below the rim. Tamp down to leave a level surface. Now sprinkle the seeds thinly and evenly over the surface of the compost. The easiest way to do this is to sow one pinch of seeds at a time. Cover the seeds over with a fine layer of potting soil, gently tamp down to firm the seeds in, then water carefully using a watering can fitted with a rose to avoid washing the seeds back out.
Move the container into a bright space, or if you're gardening in a hot climate, a cool and shady corner. Check daily and water as necessary to maintain good, evenly moist conditions. Seedlings usually take 510 days to germinate. Once the seedlings appear you will probably need to thin them out a little. Remove some of the seedlings so that those remaining are spaced at least an inch, or 2cm, apart. The leaves are ready to cut about 46 weeks after sowing. Harvest little and often by using a sharp knife or scissors to.
