Hydroponics A New Beginning

Hydroponics is gardening without the use of soils. Hydroponics is a new beginning for me. because up til now I have only used basic methods to garden. Plus I garden organically. So I use compost tea for my nutrient base. I’m new at this so please be patient. But basically I built an ebb and flow system. I used a gutter that I purchased for about $6 at the local depot. I use a pond pump with an extra sock filter over it to keep out the big particles. Using compost tea there will always be some residuals floating around in there. So basically I just will flood the system about every 20 minutes or so and we start there. The beauty of using compost tea is that you can not over fertilize. But you can still over water so be careful at first to not over do it.

Hydroponics Ebb And Flow

In hydroponics there are many different methods. Ebb and flow is the one I choose because it seems to be the cheapest method. Basically you just flood(ebb) the system and let it drain(flow) every 15 or 20 minutes and that’s it. I love gardening cheap. If I can do it for free even better. After all I doing this to save money and to make money gardening you gotta try to find the cheapest ways. Which will save you money which will then make you more money. Find what works and multiply it several times over and over. I mean you are already doing it once or twice why not five or ten more times. If this works I will have these all over my greenhouse. I haven’t gotten the soil less medium yet but as soon as I finish this post I’m going to get it. Hydroponics is all new to me but I will figure it out and learn many different and new ways to garden for money. Hydroponics is just another way to make money gardening.

Perennial Gardening A Gardeners Dream

Perennials Rock

A perennial is a plant that comes back year after year. With no extra work involved. Unless of course you want to spread that perennial all over your gardens or yard. A perennial to me means I do a little work and get to enjoy it for many years to come. A perennial is my kinda plant. It spreads and provides even more enjoyment. For me perennials make money gardening. Because I dig them divide them and sell them. Always keeping some for myself. And in my landscape perennials rule. And let me tell you perennials make a small garden design rock!

Perennial Gardening

Perennial Gardening

Plants like daffodils, tulips, water lilies, day lilies, iris, the list goes on and on. There are literally thousands of them. One thing I love about the perennial is the fact that I only have to plant it once and the work is done. Mother nature will do most of the work for me. In fact with water plants you don’t even have to water them. i sell many perennials at my nursery or garden center Gabelmans Gardens (859)242-1602 feel free to give us a call.

Perennial Gardening My True Passion

Look the real reason I love gardening so much is because it’s easy for me. I plant it. And it grows. I sell some and make money gardening. Now you have got to like that. It’s practically free. Now don’t get me wrong there is usually a small investment to get the plants to start with. But I never buy plants that I think will not sell. Unless it’s for hobby purposes. I always buy plants that I know I can make my money back with. Keeping in mind that it is illegal to propagate and sell some plants. It’s up to you to find out what plants can be sold and what can not. Do your research first before buying plants. Only buy plants that can be sold legally by you. If you buy plants to resell them make sure you buy plants that sell easily. And sell a lot of.

Perennial Gardening For Fun Or Profit?

Whichever you decide perennial gardening will provide you with years of enjoyment. I like it for many different reasons. But making money is my favorite reason of all. I mean you get to have the enjoyment of beautiful plants and you get to make money from them as well. You can’t go wrong. And then when you see your hobby make you money you will have a whole new perspective on gardening for money I guarantee it. Just start small and grow your business slowly. It’s fun and easy. You can do it. Make money gardening and you’ll be doing something you love and getting paid for it. In two more maybe one year I will be totally reliant on my perennial gardening business. I grew it slow and steady always adding products along the way. Never made a big investment yet and it is totally working for me. Start off with the plants you already grow and add a few each year. It works or I wouldn’t even be writing this.

Perennial Gardening In My Greenhouse

If you have a greenhouse you can take it one step further. You can do you propagation in there. I grow all year long now with the help of a tiny heater and some innovation. I grow all my props in the greenhouse and produce many new plants like this for free. Now this is when you can really start making the money. When you can mass produce many different kinds of plants that sell easily. Stuff like hydrangea and other easy plants to propagate. Garden ideas are what make money and the more you garden the more ways you come up with to make money gardening. My biggest ways are to add more products. The more products I offer the more I sell with very little added work. After all nature is doing most of the work for me. So get out there and garden a perennial today and make money gardening.

Bamboo, water lilies, lotus, forget me knots, Easter lilies, day lilies, iris, Hosta, eastern Red Bud tree, hydrangea and many more to many to mention. But you get the idea.

How Did I Start To Make Money Gardening Plants?

Well about 17 years ago I started noticing great landscapes. Some of the stone work I saw amazed me. Then I saw something that opened up my eyes. It was a huge waterfall spilling into this giant pond with Koi swimming all around in it. That was all it took. I wanted a pond with a waterfall. And so I went to the big box store and bought a little kit for a pond. I put it in for my Mother on mothers day. She loved it. So we went to this pond class together. When we came out we looked at each other and said we need a bigger pond. So this time I went and bought a huge piece of liner and built a new pond. Well then my Dad had to have one so I put one in for him as well. He loved it. I thought man I could start building these for people. And I did. I have installed 37 watergardens with waterfalls. So getting back to the original purpose of this story. I bought some water lilies for the ponds from a guy down the street. He told me he was going out of business soon and wondered if I had any interest in taking over the business. He taught me a lot about water gardens and waterlilies. And so it began I put a sign in my front yard that said water lilies and people came. I made a lot of money that first year. So I just kept it up and expanded into other areas of gardening. Now I make money gardening plants. And its as simple as that.

Make Money Gardening Plants In The Greenhouse

From there I just kept on expanding my capabilities and built the greenhouse. Which was the best decision I ever made gardening. Because if you really want to make money gardening plants you gotta get a greenhouse. Its crazy how much you can grow in a small amount of space like that. I love growing plants in the greenhouse because you have so many options. You control the way the plants grow without having to worry about the weather destroying your crops. I wouldn’t give up my greenhouse for anything accept a bigger greenhouse. Got to run. I hope you learned some new ways to make money gardening plants.

Garden Ideas Make Money Gardening

I have many different garden ideas and tricks you can use. I am going to share some of them with you today. First things first we want to do this as cheap as possible. So by using soil you have already get some pots. I’m sure you have some laying around somewhere that are not being used. Put you some well draining soil into the pots. You may have to mix in some potting soil if the soil is hard-pan clay.

Garden Ideas That Save You Money

This is one of the best garden ideas I know. Instead of buying a bunch of plants already grown for you at who knows where. Why not grow your own it saves you so much money. It’s fast, fun and easy to grow your own starts. For next to nothing. I mean how many large vegetable plants can you get for $10? Not many in my opinion. But now how many different seeds can you get with that $10 many, many more. It only takes a week or two to get them going and ready to transplant in about a month and a half.

Garden Ideas

Get you some vegetable seed. You might have to buy these but you can usually get all the seed you need for under $10. That is actually pretty cheap. Or if you buy fresh vegetables from the store you can save the seed from them. I mean you are already buying the seed inside the vegetable. If you sell a few of your starts you can make your money back easily. If You sell them all you will make money gardening. Then you can garden for free. Now I collect rain water to water with so no cost there at all. Rain barrels cost nothing to run and you get free water. I have about 10 of them so I get plenty of free water. Trust me collecting rain water from a rain barrel is one of the greatest garden ideas ever thought of. It has saved so much money on watering plants. Now I would start all my seed indoors next to a partially sunny window. Each pot can grow all of the starts at first. Once they start growing well and have about 3-4 leaves they will need to be separated and transplanted either into bigger pots or going into the ground. Make sure you harden the plants off before going straight outside with them or they will surely die. What I mean is take them outdoors for short periods of time. Before thrusting them straight outdoors. They need to get used to the outside temps if started inside. For greenhouse vegetable starts you can just open the door to your greenhouse for a little while each day until you are leaving it open all day. In my opinion the longer it takes to harden them off the stronger they will be. But that is just my opinion and others may not agree.

Garden Ideas Proven Methods

That is why I do my next trick. I use bottom heat until it is time to transplant. This gives my new starts a great root base from which to grow on. I mean a house built on a solid foundation will stand strong. I believe it gives the plants their best chance for growing success. And since I grow organically these plants will be amazing just like every other year. I grow lots and lots of starts each year. The ones that don’t sell get planted and there is simply no waste at all. I only sell vegetables and fruit that my family will eat. Later on as my business grows I may take on other vegetables. But for now it is just the basics. Which brings me to my third and yet untried method.

Garden Ideas I’m Trying This Year

Garden Ideas Compost Tea

Garden Ideas Compost Tea

Compost tea is supposed to be the be all end all when it comes to fertilizing plants. Well this year I’m going to find out. Because as I write this my first brew of compost tea is going right now. I can’t wait to see what a difference it is going to make. I’ll be feeding my plants for the first time tomorrow with the new tea. I am also growing a lot more vegetables this year. I’m really going to get the full use out of the greenhouse this year. I’m going to finish the other half of my greenhouse this year as well. Hopefully in time to grow in there this year. I hope these garden ideas will help you in your gardening experiences. If you would like to purchase vegetable starts from me contact me at (859)242-1602 Jeff Gabelman and we can work out the details. Now get out there and put these garden ideas to work for you and make money gardening.

Greenhouse Vegetable Gardening Make Money Gardening

Greenhouse vegetable gardening is a great way to make some money on the side. Or you could actually make a full-time income if you are willing to put the time in to do it. Greenhouse vegetable gardening is a fun and profitable hobby. It takes away your stress and gives you something to take care of. I believe that this has an importance in my life cause it helps to keep me on track. I grow and sell vegetable starts and I grow food for my family. Greenhouse vegetable gardening is a big part of my business. And I couldn’t see me not doing it. It’s a great opportunity to make some really great money in a short amount of time.

Greenhouse Vegetable Gardening The Ups and Downs

Greenhouse vegetable gardening has it’s ups and downs. Just like anything else. There will always be some kind of problems growing plants. But when growing in a greenhouse you can eliminate many of the problems that you would have outside. I love this type of gardening. For the simple fact that I can control a lot of the normal problems of growing outdoors. When greenhouse vegetable gardening you basically control how the plants grow. So when you can control these factors you will learn what they need and want. You give them what they want and need they will pay you back with produce and lots of it.

There are however some bad things about growing in a greenhouse. You have to worry about damping off, fungus, and mold. And there are insects that will still get inside your greenhouse. I got the tobacco worm two years in a row and in a matter of 2 days they stripped my tomato plants clean and destroyed them I was so mad. Those things can wipe out your whole crop fast. It’s not always that fun. When something does this it makes you very mad. All your hard work gone. That’s exactly why I built my greenhouse. Because the deer ate my 6 ft tall tomato plants to the ground.
