Some issues that have come up recently. I’m dealing with some blight (very common on much of the vegetation around here), blossom end rot and nutrient burn.

    Loved the video! What type of cal/mag were you using? I ran test this
    winter on my indoor grow with cal / mag? Here’s the fascinating part – I
    found BER on my tomatoes when using GH cal mag. However, botanicare cal/mag
    – no BER. Everything else was equal, plant type, nutrient, lighting ect. My
    point is – don’t rule out the brand. Not all cal mags are created equal. I
    think for a liquid solution – if you are going that route, botanicare is
    the best. But I suspect you may be going dry as opposed to liquid for that
    set up. Very cool.?

    Hey Marc……ordered my new camcorder this week….will be posting videos
    of the garden. It is doing so incredibly well this year. I am extremely
    pleased. My san marzanos are just loaded up, and just harvested artichokes
    and corn. Great stuff!!.cant wait to show it on video.

    To this point, I think I’ve been too timid in my pruning, you are right
    about that. If it’s not too terribly hot when I get home from work today, I
    shall begin! Thanks for all the thoughtful ideas Judy! I appreciate you
    taking the time to give me some pointers.

  • FesterWerks 2 years ago

    Oooh, very cool! That will be nice. Glad to hear your garden is doing well,
    you probably have tomatoes coming out of your ears. Can’t wait to see your
    results! Been trying to do a video for a couple weeks, but other stuff just
    keeps getting in the way. Maybe today 🙂

  • FesterWerks 2 years ago

    That’s really not a good look for me. The more I see it the more I dislike
    it. I need longer arms. Some of these tomatoes are just beautiful. Never
    expected them to be so intense color-wise.

  • alanhillberg 2 years ago

    Thanks for the update. I’m looking forward to hearing about your results.
    The closeup was an interesting perspective. Did not detract from the
    message at all. Love the bright vibrant red tomatoes. They look delish. 🙂

    I really like the dutch bucket system except for the clogging. I need to
    figure out how the commercial guys keep their emitters clean. I think they
    use a larger emitter, still researching. Check out
    youtube.com/user/KangZumwalt, he has an interesting gravity fed system.
    Maybe next year I’ll add a row of DWC and see how it goes. Doesn’t your
    solution get warmer quicker with the smaller buckets?

  • Kang Zumwalt 2 years ago

    Interesting that you would have blossom end rot. I haven’t experienced any
    at all on my vertigro stacks. I water a constant drip (1 Gallon Per Hour
    Drippers) during day time hours with gravity flow on my system since it’s
    off-grid.

  • meanshoes 2 years ago

    Eh bro, I’ve been getting a wee bit of the blossom end rot also but not to
    bad. it was mostly on my cherry tomatoes but seems to be gone a present.
    everything sure looks great!

  • FesterWerks 2 years ago

    So far I’ve been able to keep my reservoir temperature to a max of about 80
    during the afternoon, but the last several days we’ve had a heat index of
    over 100 and it’s crept up to 84, that could be a factor. I’ve used some
    “Serenade”, an organic anti-fungal. I will take a look at hydrogen peroxide
    too. I don’t use Bobby’s formula, I use “Big Bang Bloom” from AmHydro.com
    and add Cal-Mag from Botanicare (and other goodies occasionally). I’ve
    considered switching to a tomato specific formula.

    Looks like it hit my Costuluto the hardest. That really bums me out. But it
    does seem to be slowing down. Newer fruit seems not to have it as much now.
    Thank goodness. I did a ton of trimming.

  • FesterWerks 2 years ago

    I was quite surprised as well. I think my limited watering at first (6a,
    12p, 6p for 40 minutes) was the issue. Now I water for 1/2 hour at 6a, 10a,
    12p, 2p, 4p, 6p and 9p. I was feeding plenty of calcium. I started out with
    .5 GPH drippers and switched to 2gph, not sure if I should go constant drip
    though. I’m still seeing some, but it has slowed down quite a bit. Thanks
    for the comment!

    I’m Cutting, Rooting, Propagating and Cloning. It’s a scream in the grow
    room these days.?

  • Keyplayr61 Greenhouse Hydroponics And Gardens 2 years ago

    That should work out good for you John! I normally cut suckers off of the
    outside plants for the hydro setup, but this year there weren’t any
    impressive prospects to work with, so I went with seeds. I didn’t know that
    you could propagate baby back ribs ; )?

  • Austin Family Gardening Channel 2 years ago

    Man that sucks about your seedlings. Good job on adapting & overcoming !?

    I’m really surprised you don’t use an aeroponics cloner. ?

  • David Dube 2 years ago

    That one cutting you were showing during your visual demonstration seemed
    to have a sucker on it. That sucker will demand hormones that should go
    into rooting, I’d clip, just the sucker part.

    Sorry about the major issue, bummer. I had to make myself a checklist that
    I would see leaving my growroom, I too was/am prone to being distracted.?

  • ImMADasAMeatAxe 2 years ago

    I don’t pot anything up these days unless its atleast a 50 percent coco
    coir blend, really holds the water in
    its springtime here in south oz temperatures slowly rising up around
    the 100 degree mark in the old scale.. coco is the only potting soil that
    seems to be holding the moisture down here.. the pine bark potting mix is
    dry as a bone.. the coco is the only stuff that seems to be doing the trick
    down here
    good drainage perfect water retention, ultimately 100 percent coco coir is
    absolute perfection, just gets a little expensive if your planting out a
    few hundred pots, though its the ultimate potting soil for the hot dry
    desert type climate?

  • ImMADasAMeatAxe 2 years ago

    I wonder how many seasons you could clone in a row, I’m thinking about
    doing indoor tomatoes after this season then clone the plant for spring
    again
    seems easier than sprouting a ton of seedlings?

  • FesterWerks 2 years ago

    Bummer about your original starts. I’ve done sillier things. Good recovery
    though and glad to see you’re going to continue. Really looking forward to
    watching the progress. Did I miss something though? You’re starting in
    dirt and then transferring to Hydro? After my cloning disaster last
    spring, I’ve just been putting tomato cuttings for hydro in a glass of
    water and letting them root. Works like a charm. I know, as you said,
    everyone has their methods 🙂 Take care John!?

  • Southpaw Davey 2 years ago

    Are you growing them up to fruit indoors? I have a couple of advanced
    volunteers that I thought I might bring in over the winter just to see what
    I get. I am only using CFLs so I wont hold my breath on fruit. but my seed
    starts were flowering before I put them out this spring. I am growing in
    dirt. Mmm ribs 😉 ?
