Done in a 3'11"x3'11"x6.5' grow tent, 250w MH HID - i've already had 16 toms come in over the winter! Woot!

I'm going to clone those toms and get some ready for outdoor - and same with the peppers.

I got basil & a different tom started. I have way more going at home, but i thought i'd show you what gardening in Mid-Atlantic winters would look like.

Very cool, how do you clone the tomatoes?

Wait for the suckers to get bigger - cut them off - work up the stem a bit, make a 45deg cut, apply rooting gel - put in rooting plug (more ways to skin a cat) - wait for roots (good environment - clones want warm & humid until they have roots and you only need enough light to keep them alive) - once you have roots - plant them - wait for them to grow a bit and viola! New tomato plant.

Overall pretty good - but i'd do a few things different. BUT - basics are good.

I've done some drain to waste. Do you have questions or what are you looking for?

this year i made some adjustments to my little raised garden.

automatic water system (i did it last year). this is great for the texas weather and if you are extremely busy. it waters my garden 4x a day at 5 minutes a piece.

the plastic fence i put around my garden to keep the rabits out didn't do to well to keep the possum out. they chewed through the plastic fence and ate all my japanese eggplant. so this year, i put a chicken fence around my garden.

last year was a mess. the peppermints, oregano, chives and various other mints overran my garden. so the things i really wanted didn't make it. my usual crop of bhut jolokias, habanero, okra didn't do to well. so this year, no more basil, mints or any of that crap. they spread like wildfire and destroy your garden.

so this year, i will try something different. 6 thai peppers, 3 trinidad scorpion peppers, 2 okra, 4 white eggplant, 1 chives, 1 cantalope. i think that should do it for me this yr. i also picked up 12 cubic ft of compost since my garden bed was getting low.

also, it was so hot last year, my bitter melon never made it to a good size. they riped before at 1/5 the regular size. hopefully this year it isn't so hot and i can get a decent crop.
