@ gemorat - talo talaga ang zombies sa plants basta mahusay kang dumipensa, hehehe

Now let's go to alogbati - paborito ko ito pag nasa Pinas, lahat na madudulas, kinakain ko, like okra and saluyot. laging kombo yan sa alugbati at malunggay.

 

 

Alogbati or Malabar Spinach has a mild taste similar to spinach; thus, its name. There are many varieties and the one has red stems and small fleshy fruits the juice of which can be used as red dye. It's probably a member of the spinach family, it does look like spinach although its leaves and stems are more succulent than spinach. It's a little bit slimy when cooked. In the Philippines, it is usually planted as a vegetable. The young leaves can be eaten fresh in salads. The older ones can be used as a potherb. It is mucilaginous, though, when cooked, and the longer it cooks, the slimier it gets. The colour of the red leaves fades when cooked. And may also be cultivated as an ornamental plant. It can be propagated by stem cuttings. The plant is perennial, but it can't survive frost. Nor, though, will it bolt in the heat, as regular spinach does. It grows as though it were a vine, up to 6 to 14 feet (almost 2 to 4 metres) long. It has broad, round to oval, meaty, glossy leaves. The leaves and stems can be either purplish-red or green. The purplish red-leafed and stemmed variety is "Basella rubra"; the green-leafed and stemmed variety is "Basella alba." It is a pick and come again plant. You harvest the leaves when they are 10 to 12 inches (25 to 30 cm) long. The stems have a bitter taste, and the consistency can be disconcerting if you're not used to it. The plant will produce bright red berries, whose juice can be used as a food colouring.

On behalf ni TS Sir Jayjay and his fans - Welcome po Sir!!

pwede nyo pong gamitan ng mga lumang fish nets to confine your plants or animals . . . . some scarecrows will do - can also make some bird feeders (yung iba ay may traps pa, then ina alagaan din nila, kaya nga lang kawawa kapag may sisiw sila).

Mga Bro,
May nabasa ako tungkol sa plant spray, maganda ito at makakatipid tayo, garlic oil lang + soap and water. I will try this on vacation God willing.

Garlic Oil Sprays
Organic gardeners have long been familiar with the repellent or toxic affect of garlic oil on pests. when it is
combined with mineral oil and pure soap, as it is in the recipe that follows, devised at the Henry Doubleday
Research Association in England, it becomes an effective insecticide. Some studies also suggest that a garlic oil spray has fungicidal properties.
Protection Offered: Good results, with quick kill, have been noted against aphids, cabbage loopers, earwigs, June bugs, leafhoppers, squash bugs and whiteflies. The spray does not appear to harm adult lady beetles, and some gardeners have found that is doesn t work against the Colorado potato beetles, grape leaf skeletonizers, grasshoppers, red ants, or sowbugs.
How to Make: Soak 3 ounces of finely minced garlic cloves in 2 teaspoons of mineral oil for at least 24 hours. Slowly add 1 pint of water that has 1/4 ounce liquid soap or commercial insecticide soap mixed into it. Stir thoroughly and strain into a glass jar for storage. use at a rate of 1 to 2 Tablespoons of mixture to a pint of water. If this is effective, try a more dilute solution in order to use as little as possible.
How to Use: Spray plants carefully to ensure thorough coverage. To check for possible leaf damage to sensitive ornamentals from the oil and soap in the spray, do a test spray on a few leaves or plants first. If no leaf damage occurs in 2 or 3 days, go ahead and spray more.

Featured article natin ngayon ay ang hydroponics:

Sa mga hindi pa nakakaalam, ito po ang uri ng pagtatanim na wala ng lupa o soil na gagamitin:

 

How to Learn About Hydroponic Vegetable

Gardening

 

Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without using soil. According to NASA, hydroponics started in the 1930s, as an extension of the plant nutrition experimentation being conducted by plant physiologists at that time. Since then, many home gardeners have created their own hydroponic grow systems. Since plants normally obtain the nutrients that help them grow through soil, hydroponic gardeners must learn how to provide these essential nutrients through other means, such as water delivery systems. Vegetable gardeners who are new to hydroponics can learn more about this unique growing method through some valuable online resources.

Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants in water rather than soil. Plant roots, rather than burrowing into soil, are surrounded by nutrient-rich water. Hydroponic gardens tend to be more compact than soil gardens, and are ideal for growing herbs and vegetables both indoors and out.

1.                           History

  • TheHangingGardensofBabylonis one of the more notable examples of a hydroponic garden. Built by King Nebuchadnezzar II during the years 604 BC to 562 BC, the gardens were located in what is present dayIran. The desert landscape of King Nebuchadnezzar II would not have supported the lush greenery and fruit trees of the gardens. Through a system resembling a water wheel housed within a man-made mountain, the terraced gardens flourished.

The Aztecs practiced hydroponics as well. They seeded rafts woven from reeds and covered with a thin layer of sediment. The rafts were then floated onto the surface ofLakeTexcoco. The seeds sprouted and the roots took their nutrients from the lake water.

2.                          Significance

  • The Aztecs living on the island inLakeTexcocohad limited space to devote to agriculture. The use of the lake as a growing field is significant as the agricultural industry today faces issues such as nutrient depleted topsoil and loss of farmland to urban sprawl. For the home gardener, hydroponics is a way to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs without having to rely on the quality of local soil.

Function

In a soil garden, the soil serves two primary purposes. The first is to supply nutrients to the plants. The second is to provide housing, that is, hold them in place as they grow. In a hydroponic garden, the water is contained and nutrients are placed into the water. The roots of the plant draw nutrients directly from the water supply. Food and water comes from one source. To hold the plants in place, there are several types of growing medium. Clay pellets, gravel and rock wool are three examples. The plant is placed in a net pot and the medium is filled in around the plant. The net pot is secured within the water source and the plant grows without soil.

Types

The basic structure of a plant floated in water can take various forms in hydroponic gardening. An example of this is the lettuce raft. Several holes are cut from a piece of Styrofoam. This creates the raft that floats within a container. The container is the water supply. Lettuce seedlings, or any greens, in net pots are placed in the holes. The plants grow while floating on the raft. This is reminiscent of the Aztec's method of floating rafts. Another example is the Dutch buckets system. Buckets with internal reservoirs are connected via pipes to a primary reservoir or water source. Pumps circulate the water through the system, feeding the plants. Dutch buckets work well for larger plants such as tomato, beans and cucumbers.

Benefits

  • A Dutch Buckets System

Because gardeners have control over the nutrients, and indeed over the growing environment, in a hydroponic garden, nutrient content can be targeted to meet specific needs. The nutritional content of water supplies can be monitored on a consistent basis. The supply of nutrients, then, is never depleted. Plants need not compete with one another for food.

Hydroponic plants are less prone to disease and pests than those grown in soil. Pests such as cutworms and squash bugs live in soil. Nutritionally depleted soil is more prone to host pests and disease. Eliminating soil eliminates many of these types of problems.
