I have a friend who is an organic farmer; she's growing some ginger indoors.  I think she ordered it from someone in Hawaii.  I'll ask her for advice the next time I see her.

I tried some outdoors in a pot and it was a dismal failure but I'm not much of a gardener.

Doing a big backyard remodel and there's a corner that gets no traffic, but lots of sun.

Right now I have two 4'x4' gardens percolating along, but my wife realized how much she loved getting produce from there and agreed with me to expand.
So, I just got the parts to make two 4' x 16' x 1' raised beds.

I guess I also need to start looking for the right dirt to fill em with. (The native dirt has far too much clay)

I shelved my plans for Aquaponics, since I didn't want to be tied to home to feed the fish - although there are automated systems. Maybe I'll try it later.

Wise choice, we are able to have our homestead only because my wife stays at home and we have no desire to go anywhere......ever.{#Lol}

Basil is very easy to grow from seed. seedlings transplant well too in case you sow them too thick.

I'm on my second try in my raised bed this year.  The first planting did nothing but maybe something will germinate this time.

And while I'm on the gardening subject I've lost many plants to the munchers this year {#Grumpy}

If I continue to plant potatoes I'll do them separately. As the best place for a garden is on the north side of the house, where we only have 12' of property, I think containers will have to do.

The only problem with leaving some is if they rot.

There is quite a bit of variation in potatoes. Some will produce potatoes but keep on growing more vine. Sort of like indeterminate tomatoes do vs determinates (sort of). I have no idea of Ozettes do so.

 
Thanks! As I planted them in separate quadrants of the barrel, rooting should work just fine. I've already had one of the PMs. It was sitting right on top of the soil...

I can't find a lot of info on the Ozettes either.

Thank you so much. The literature that came with the seed potatoes states I can leave mature potatoes in the soil, but to harvest before heavy rains. So I figured I could leave the PMs and the cranberries until the Makahs are ready, as long as I kept the heavy rains off the barrel. Bad idea?

We're unlikely to get a frost here until late December, so I'm good there. And these were all planted on May 11. So that's 155 days so far!

If you tell me that leaving the other potatoes in the barrel is NOT a good idea, I'll root around. The Makahs were expensive and I'm very much looking forward to trying them.

Thanks again!
