Greenhouse update june 2017


today you get an update on the
greenhouse so stay tuned hi everybody this is Andreas from Off Grid Sweden. If
you haven’t been here before i want to welcome you for the first time on this
channel i show you things that we do on the homestead tips and tricks reviews
stuff related to home study and off your living and also videos like this one if
you haven’t subscribed please do so if you like the content and you will get
notified on new content now back to the topic of this video as you can see the
tomatoes are doing great in the greenhouse I try to trim them every day
so the actual tomatoes get all the growing power they need I could probably
be more aggressive but they are doing really well it was a cold spring this
year so it’s amazing to have a greenhouse to plant him the grapes was moved from the back of
the house in the spring and are doing well there won’t be any great this year
but that’s understandable I had to protect the cucumber’s from the Sun so I
used some leftover ground cloth it don’t look so nice but it works for now the
cucumber’s are coming along nice they are already about 30 small cucumbers on
the plants they are very happy in the box that I built if you want to watch
the build of the box I leave a card for you and a link in the description I took
out the lemon tree from the living room and it started grow like crazy I know
that you’re not supposed to replant them in the spring and summer but I will take
a chance to do that the fig tree was standing in too much Sun and got dried
out but it have come back and are now producing new leads I even got one Pig
on it this is a cucumber that my son wanted to buy when we were at the plant
school it is called Jungle cucumber and it produces round striped cucumbers it
seems to do really well in the cucumber box the pepper got a late start but
hopefully they will start to grow and catch up I also got electricity out to the
greenhouse now this is a role long network cable I thought it was a good
idea to get some Network out here as well and with the electricity I can have
a security cam out here and control the water this is a 12-volt cable running to
the valve for the water I change it from the Galliano one because it didn’t
turned off as it should with a drip irrigation system
this one works much better and it’s connected to the home automation system
and as you can see it works down here I got some pumpkins that are going out in
the garden and some passion fruits that have had too much Sun so this is how the
greenhouse looks like right now I planted a red currant bush here and it
will cast some shade in the greenhouse in a couple of years we are making some
curtains for the greenhouse as well for shade I also have to put the
irrigation system for the lawn back into the ground again in the greenhouse area on the other side of the greenhouse I
have planted some pumpkins they had a rough time in the Sun but are doing
better now I have a layer of wood chips on top of
the soil and even though we haven’t had so much rain the soil is moist I will go
all in on the back to Eden Garden method it really works this is how the
irrigation control the box for the lawn looks like I will dig it into the ground
when everything is ready around it these connectors goes to my controller that I
built myself more on that in another video the blackberries are coming along real
nice even though we took a lot of rubaba this
year we got a lot of rhubarb left we will make some more lemonade pies and
marmalade if you want to watch how I make lemonade I leave a card for you and
the link is in the description the strawberries are doing nice they will
also get wood chips but for now they will have to manage without I put some potatoes in the ground and
they are doing well here you can see how do we’d take over when you’re not using
good chips so a mental note produce a lot of wood chips that’s it for this
episode I’ll talk to you in the comments and I’ll see you in the next video if
