It's practically permanently in shade, so growing anything is difficult. I've been experimenting since about 2004 to grow things... which I'm sure I've often mentioned...
I went with a permaculture direction since the end of 2013... I've been incorporating low level light plants, or shade crops. this year we got a new out door light in the parking-lot, after several years of darkness after they removed to old New England lamppost lanterns.
I think I got "the gift" from my dad, so to speak... because when I have LIGHT I can nearly save any plants... "Green Thumb"
So, this situation was a brain picker....
I never really know what results I will get because thing that OUGHT to grow didn't, or had poor results, and stuff that I expected to fail went great! Also, different results in different years, n different times of the seasons!
The only way to learn is to do, and learn from failure...
My cucumbers are doing so well now! I didn't think they would grow at all!
They're VERY THIRSTY! They drink so much water!
I'm also growing ginger & potatoes! I didn't know they could grow so easily!
Trying to maximize the most out of what limited #light exposure my #plants in my #garden can even get. I must #prune the plants, n rearrange them frequently. #night #evening and they get such a tiny amount of sunlight in the morning. We're approaching equinox very soon, which is end of next month. #NewEngland Several years worth of #experimentations to get it this lush, if u want to call it that.... But, indoor gardening for me is easy... If I have light, I've saved things that were dying.
#garden #greens #harvest I had to trim all these down. The aphids ravaged them so bad! 2 weeks ago it was mini inchworms or larva, and before that it was either caterpillars or cold n rainstorms! They were doing well, but they freaked n started flowering! Once they do that, they don't grow the right leaves! So, after chopping off flowers 3 times per day, the plants were hell bent on flowering! So, I had to let me flower n go to seed pods! But, that attracted the aphids! Then the aphids bloomed in a swarm! Luckily, it's about almost mid summer! I'd started some other experimental crops, which took off! I was expecting those to fail, so I chopped these down or trimmed them, so the other ones can grow n get better light. Plus, I added some new seeds. They should bloom in sequence hopefully. In the meantime, these are #soaking so I can fry them.
