Walipini, underground greenhouse for year round growing
Underground greenhouse for growing veggies year round outdoors
Interesting year round gardening idea
Build a $300 underground greenhouse for year-round gardening (Video) -- A walipini is a greenhouse that is built into the ground to take advantage of the more stable temperatures and thermal mass of the earth. Ranging from simple to elaborate, these structures allow you to grow all year long, in almost any climate on earth. Build your own, and take control of your food future!
"A walipini is an underground greenhouse that lets you grow food year-round.. What makes the walipini better than hoop houses and green houses? First, by locating the growing area 6’- 8’ underground you take advantage of the constant temperature of the earth below the frost level. Second, you can capture and store the daytime solar radiation in the surrounding earth which then radiates back into the greenhouse during the cold winter nights."

Homesteading Pagan Style: Greenhouses made from old windows.
Cold Frame Gardening: Great for growing spinach, scallions, carrots, leeks, lettuce, and salad greens through the winter. Works best in zones 6 and south. You can greatly increase your crops by adding a plastic tunnel over the cold frame.

Continuous cilantro production with this method

A better way to grow cilantro...my cilantro in the garden grows so fast and flowers early so I'm going to try this on the back patio garden.
How to grow cilantro - Try this method for a fast, continuous crop
A better way to grow cilantro for a fast, continuous crop Wouldn't it be nice to have fresh cilantro growing right outside your kitchen door? Whenever you wanted to fix salsa or guacamole, or a Middle Eastern yogurt sauce for your lamb kabobs, there the lacy, sweetly pungent leaves would be, ready to harvest. But if you've ever tried to grow it, you've probably noticed that cilantro yields a fast crop; plants are barely up before they try to flower and set seeds. So those tasty leaves aren't around long, especially in warm weather. More about cool-season crops To keep leaves coming, you can sow seeds every two weeks for a continuous cilantro crop. Or, even better, try the method we perfected in Sunset's test garden last year: Grow cilantro as you would mesclun. Sow seeds thickly in a wide, shallow container; then, as soon as plants are 3 to 4 inches tall and sporting a couple of cuttable leaves, use scissors to cut off some foliage for cooking as shown. Shear from a different section of the container every time, rotating the pot as you go and never letting plants in any area mature. By the time you get back to the first section harvested, new leaves will have appeared. Cilantro growing tips 1. Select a bowl-shaped container at least 18 inches wide and 8 to 10 inches deep. 2. Fill the pot with a fast-draining potting soil; mix in an organic granular fertilizer. 3. Before seeding, moisten the soil using a fine spray from the hose. Because the seeds are fairly small, mix them in a bowl with sand (3 parts sand to 1 part seed) so they'll disperse more evenly. Sow the seeds, then cover lightly with soil. 4. Gently mist the soil so as not to displace the seeds. 5. Place containers in full sun or, if you live in a hot climate, light shade. Seeds should germinate in 7 to 10 days. 6. Harvest at least weekly to keep leaves coming. Using this method, it's possible to harvest four crops of cilantro from a single pot.

3 year crop rotation. Rotate between root & bulb, fruit, and leaf.
Crop Rotation Chart: even though we plan on doing a square foot garden where crop rotation isn't totally necessary< I still think it is a good idea.
3 Year Crop Rotation... although I'd be cautious about following potatoes with tomatoes or visa-versa. I think the concept is good: first, below ground crop; second vegetables and seed plants; third cruciferous plants.

-grow your own celery- just cut off the bottom and plant it!
Re grow celery - green onions -never knew it was that easy...
Re-grow celery Did you know that you can grow another complete celery stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? This is new to me, too, but I have been doing it this year and it works! I use a lot of celery when cooking and I hope to save quite a bit by re-growing it throughout the spring and summer. *When I bring the celery home, I cut the end off first then put the rest into the refrigerator. *I usually set the bottom piece on a saucer of warm water overnight to get it started. Also, because I am usually busy cooking and working in the kitchen when I do this and don’t have time to plant it right away, I think this gives it a head start. When I have time, I will take that piece and plant it just like it is, in the vegetable garden with the stalk side up. Just dig a small hole, fill it with water and set the end in the hole, then cover it up with an inch or so of soil. Water thoroughly. It will grow a brand new top to be cut and used. After re-growing celery, you can cut and plant the bottom again for more new growth from the top. I plan to start planting my cut celery bottoms in small pots or trays late next winter so that I have a few dozen to plant out into the vegetable garden in May. I wonder if I can grow it in a sunny window all winter! Once you have it growing, you can cut it off on an “as needed” basis and just keep it regrowing in the garden or pot. I may never need to buy celery again!
