My Vegetable Garden Update

February 13, 2020

Hey guys! Welcome to my vlog channel. This is part 2 of my garden video, In part 1, we weeded the entire garden,
cultivated it, added compost and added garden lime, to make the soil’s pH ideal
for our vegetables. Now I need to make furrows. which are called “une” (畝) in Japanese. One of the main reasons you need une is so that water can drain better. The size of the une depends on the vegetables that you want to grow. The une I made this time are about
this size. Hi. Do you want some Negi? Jun: Oh, thank you! Jun: Is it really okay? This is called akahige negi.
It’s good for pot dishes. Jun: Thank you so much. I hope you can enjoy it. So this was actually November
and it was pretty late for planting. Because typhoons kept coming
when I was supposed to plant, I decided to put off planting. But, obviously I waited too long. Next time I’d like to have a sturdier
vegetable tunnel, and plant earlier. Honestly I’m not even sure if I’ll actually be able to grow anything this time. But, we’ll see! Hmm.. It’s… still not big enough yet.
So I’m gonna… …sprinkle some more fertlilizer here, around them. And hope it will grow more! The stem used to be thin and soft, but now it’s super hard. and thick and tough. Wow… Wow, it’s thicker than my finger. Wow. And, as for the cabbage… (laughs) Fail… This center part needs to..
become like a sphere. And then, it just forms into a ball,
It becomes a ball, as it’s temperature decreases and it
gets cold. But, it’s called Kekkyu in japanese. But..I think I planted it a little too late?
And… I don’t think it will become a ball. I’m gonna wait a little longer to see
If it will become a tiny cabbage ball! Maybe! …I don’t know. (laughs) Well, wish me luck! Anyway, I’m really happy that
I was able to grow… …my wife’s favorite vegetable! Romanesco! Yay!
Success! Yay!
Success! Hmm! Yay. This is great! Thank you for watching, guys!
See you guys later! Bye!

    i'm italian and i grow romanesco near rome.if i can suggest you, try to move more the soil below the spots where you will be planting. in the video seems like you only made the hole for the plant heigth,but if you move more the soil below the roots will go deeper faster grabbing more nutrients and growing much more. failure are part of the process,keep it up!

    SUPER IMPORTANT GARDEN RULE: if you take something from ground, you have to give it back.

    Any chance of getting a bag of cowshit? It would make the soil with time for fertile and not as sandy, other good option is leaving the grass you weed out on the soil, just weed when its sunny and hot outside and wiggle off any soil that is attached to plants roots, in the sun (and no rain that day) the weeds will just welt and become a good fertilizer and a natural one.

    I am a keen vegetable grower, just wondering about the deep farrows between the beds. Is that just for walking along or does it provide more water to the plant roots?

  • Reply Wayne Essar February 13, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    Raised beds are what they are called here.
    Don't be afraid to remove lower leaves on the cruciferous vegetable and plant them deep and very firm.

    Maybe it's just its composition…
