We have a new video available on our youtube channel

We realize that not everyone is able to use our youtube channel so we've decided to offer this email with a brief explanation AND let you know that we have packets of Nitrogen Boost Fish Food on sale this weekend for only $1.95 plus shipping
NPK: 8-5-1
Hydrolized Fish Powder for a quick shot of nitrogen for your plants
Easy to use instant fish-based foliar feed or Tea.
Each 1 gallon packet packet makes a gallon of full strength liquid feed or 2 gallons of diluted feed
Each 5 gallon packet packet makes 5 gallons of full strength liquid feed or 10 gallons of diluted liquid feed
Uses:
Foliar feed
Transplant root soak to reduce stress/shock
Pre-Soak for seeds
DIY Liquid fertilizer

Here's the video!
We recently posted a video about using Micronized Azomite in the garden as a liquid feed. Micronized Azomite is great to re-mineralize your soil for healthy root growth.

Nitrogen Boost Fish Food is an excellent boost for your plants if you notice yellowing leaves or stunted plants. If you use too much nitrogen, you might have lots of green leaf growth but not enough flowering for fruits/veggies. However, you'll notice that none of our plant food and soil amendment options have a super high NPK. Everything we offer is natural and organic with no synthetic ingredients.

To use Mountain Flower Nitrogen Boost Fish Food, all you need is water and a container with your fertilizer. Simply add the desired amount of water to your container, add the Nitrogen Boost Fish Food and mix thoroughly. This product is water soluble and can be used immediately.

A 1-gallon packet will make 1 gallon of strong tea or 2 gallons of diluted tea. we also offer a 5 gallon packet that will make 5 gallons of strong tea or 10 gallons diluted.

This is a great option for a "quick fix" in your garden or as a regular fertilizer for heavy feeders such as Zucchini, Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, Corn, Okra, Squash and Pumpkin.

HELPFUL LINKS 

August 6, 2018
We hope your garden is flourishing!

We're often asked about which varieties of seeds are easy to grow.  Another common question is "What can I grow right now?"
Well, you're in luck because there are LOTS of easy varieties to plant right now depending on your area.  Here's a list to help you get started.
Enjoy!
Easy to Grow Varieties


Nothing is the garden is completely "quick and easy" but there are certainly varieties that grow quicker than others or might be easier to grow than some.
From 9 Easiest Veggies to Grow from Seed to Harvest

People often ask, "What's the easiest veggie to grow?"  For me, that's a tough one.  If I had to choose just ONE, the easiest veggie with the best yield, it would have to be Swiss Chard.   Swiss Chard is easy to grow from seed and provides continual harvest for several months after maturity.  Swiss Chard can survive warm and hot climates so that's a plus.


What are the 9 Easiest Veggies to Grow?

Planting:
Soak seeds overnight in water before planting to ensure strong germination. Plant seeds half an inch deep and 3 inches apart. Set out seedlings 12 inches apart. Indoors or out, thin newly germinated seedlings with cuticle scissors instead of pulling them out. Chard seed capsules often contain two or more seeds. If more than one germinates, promptly snip off all but the strongest sprout at the soil line

Harvesting:
Twist off individual outer leaves and compost old leaves that have lost their glossy sheen. Three to five leaves can be picked from mature plants at a time, but be sure to leave the growing crown intact.

2. RADISH

Radishes are a cool weather crop best planted in spring and autumn. Growing radishes during the hot summer months will cause them to bolt.  

Planting: When preparing the planting bed, loosen the soil 6 to 10 inches deep, and mix in good compost or well-rotted manure. Sow seeds a half inch deep and 1 inch apart, in rows spaced 12 inches apart. After the seedlings appear, thin salad radishes to 3 inches apart; thin oriental radishes to 8 to 10 inches apart.

Harvest: Some Radish varieties such as Early Scarlet Globe radish can mature in as few as 22 days!


Planting:  All types of lettuce grow best when the soil is kept constantly moist, and outside temperatures range between 45 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare your planting bed by loosening the soil to at least 10 inches deep. Mix in an inch or so of good compost or well-rotted manure. Sow lettuce seeds a quarter of an inch deep and 1 inch apart in rows or squares, or simply broadcast them over the bed.

Harvest: Harvest lettuce in the morning, after the plants have had all night to plump up with water.


For the sake of simplicity, I classify beans in 2 categories: Bush and Pole.

Bush beans are usually compact and grow close to the ground. Pole beans climb and require a trellis or other support. Bush beans tend to produce more beans in a shorter time, while pole beans will produce more over an entire season. Pole beans typically require much less.

Planting: Wait until well after the last frost before you plant the beans as they all like warm soil for germination. Plant the seeds about an inch below the surface and keep watered until the seed germinate

Harvest: Whether you grow pole beans or bush beans you will have an abundant harvest if you remember to pick regularly. Most beans are harvested before the seed grows too large, and the overall harvest will continue for many weeks if the beans are picked every day or so.



The varieties listed above, Swiss Chard, Radish, Lettuce and Green Beans, can all be grown in Containers, raised beds and in-ground.

What about fast-maturing varieties?
