    the only fruit you mentioned is peppers, tomato, cucumber, zucchini. A
    fruit has seeds on the inside and berries are not fruit they are berries.
    corn is grain and broccoli is a flowering leafy vegetable, yes radish and
    carrot is a root veg. but potato is a tuber.. 🙂 Brussels sprouts are a
    flowering leafy vegetable as well.

    Looks like a Fungus on the tomatos, as long as the stem is not effected
    just keep taking off the effected limbs. Oh, wash your hands after handling
    them to cut down on contact spreading. Awesome garden LDS, love the onions!

    When you do the weekly feed, did you start this even when they were tiny
    seeds or do you wait till they are a little more developed?

    I am not sure, but I think that “stink bug” on the watermelon is actually a
    squash bug which are horrible pests of squash, and also pests of other
    vining crops like cucumber and melons. Get rid of those things whenever you
    see them.

    What is your opinion of using your gardening technique on a larger scale–1
    acre.? You have a lot of success- but to do this on a large scale- I would
    love to hear your opinion. Thank you

    The Lord always provides. Those brussel sprout plants were humungry. Leaves
    are generally unknown/forgotten but marvelously edible. Some say better
    than the fruit. Try some in your green smoothy for some extra pow. Do
    anything with the leaves you would do with kale.

    When you’re talking gardening, “fruit” doesn’t mean fruit in the context
    you’re thinking. “fruit” in this case means that the plant is primarily
    used for the vegetable it produces… you have root vegetables (radish,
    carrot, potato, etc), leaf vegetables (spinach, collards, lettuce) and
    fruiting vegetables (like cucumber, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, corn,
    zucchini, etc)

    Let me tell you,I have constantly put food in storage because I would
    share.. but my fear is people do strange things when they are hungry..when
    you look at your children and see that they are starving because you wanted
    that big screen tv,or that fancy cell phone,or that big car or boat instead
    of doing what the church leaders warned us to do, then my is fear that they
    won’t ask for help,but they will come and try to take it. I am not the type
    person who would not share! I have to think safety!

    Two weeks ago there was a big preparedness show at UVU in Orem. Jim Kennard
    and his wife had a booth at the show. I had a great visit with them. About
    a month before that Jim Kennard, his wife, and LDSPrepper did a seminar 3
    days in a row in Sandy, Utah. Lots of info. I’m in Payson and my Mittleider
    garden is looking great…best ever for me.

    I have Sweet 100 tomatoes planted too, and they also look like yours! My
    others are doing fine. Also, how do your heavy melons work on a vertical
    set up? Won’t they pull off from their weight? I live in So Cal coastal,
    and am amazed that you are harvesting! You are so far ahead of my garden.
    But still I am having amazing results even now with the Mittleider
    fertilizing. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow. I had to look those up. We don’t have those where I live. They sound
    like they are horrible garden pests. I am glad we don’t get them.

    Using your “off-grid self watering container gardening” but confused about
    the fertilization process. Using your 70% peatmoss, 30% perlite & 3/4 cup
    limestone & 1 cup microlite weekly. Where do I place it wkly because you
    have plastic tied around bucket. Do I still put fertilizer on top of dirt &
    then the Plastic? If yes, what fertilizer? Budget extremely low & can’t buy
    microlite for 2 wks, will the plants be ok for now. Can I do strawberries
    in 10 gal. How can I msg or email you. PLS HELP ME!
