Veggie and Fruit Garden -Summer 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAcrabbigB-150x150OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWell folks, not only I grow jade plants but I grow “things” to eat in my garden. I am bless with a big garden. What I grow in the garden-I grow strawberry,blueberry, raspberry,apricot,apples, Asian pears, regular pear, peaches, plums,big cherry tree that produces bing, red and Rainer cherry, Japanese Persimmon, Nectarine,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Italian Prune, Fig, green beans, zucchini, cherry tomato,asparagus, sugar peas, kale, Chinese spinach aka chai-sim, Chinese Broccoli aka Kai-Lan, and…soon Marijuana. Did I miss anything? I grow anything that can grow.

Did you see the largest blueberry? it is huge

**Total cost spend per year to maintain a big garden:
Seeds: $10-I buy them on sale
Soil: Free- as I compose all the dead leaves and trimming.
Fertilizer: only 5 bags of steer manure but most of them are organic.
Water: FREE-FREE-FREE–YES YOU HEAR ME. I have 10- 55 gal rain barrels and have never used public water during summer.

Note: There is so much veggie from my garden that I give them to my neighbors and some to the Food Bank.
I love to grow and I love to grow FOOD instead of grass.

Dry clothes-using the power of the SUN.
How to save water and Energy

This is how I dry all my clothes, save lots of money and it only takes 2 days to dry in the 50s and only one day it is 60s and above.
Oh yeaaaaaaaa save lots of money and best of all -going green. When it is dry, all you have to do is touch dry in the dryer. The clothes last longer too.
Using the power of the SUN- FREE SUN

Yea-lots of people are freaking embarrass to do this hanging clothes because they might offend their neighbors but who gives a F… I tell my neighbors that I save lots of money and that all I care. What there to be embarrass about??? in most of Asian countries like in Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Thailand, you can see those people hanging clothes outside.
Yea- the best part is you get to see your neighbor’s clothes and I love it when I see cute panties …..Whopeeeeeee

So my dear what is there to be shy about??

In America, it is such a BS- they say to go green and save energy and blah blah blah– by changing the light bulbs, compost the food and driving electric cars —— all these are pretty freaking small stuffs- but it all adds up. The BIGGEST ENERGY SAVE IS DRY YOUR FREAKING CLOTHES OUTSIDE–FREE SUN-
AND use rain barrels. Yes I have lots of rain barrels too.
Save lots of water and energy!!! BEST OF ALL SAVE LOTS OF MONEY!!!

How to grow that big Jade Plant

Hello All,
I received so many inquiries on how I grow that big jade plant, asking me what my special secrets or tricks or what kind of special “steroid” food I give to that jade plant.

Well Folks, there is no secrets, no tricks, no special food. It is all about TLC- Tender Loving Care- yes Sir/Madame, just plain old fashion tender loving care. I talk to my plant every morning and nite—This is like my baby. I feed her good quality food, water her and make sure she is in good health. She is in the 55-60 degrees cool temperature of Seattle and located at the South West of the house near the big window.

I do not use any special add on fertilizer or any of those gimmicks that stick to the soil, all I use is the clean indoor soil bought from Home Depot(the cheapest brand), yes, the cheapest band.
Just think about it, you do not need any more fertilizer than the plant need. YOU ARE OVERFEEDING THE PLANT.Let the Plant take care of herself. The biggest problem in this country is people overfeed themselves. Like pets, most pets died or sick because the owners overfeed their pets. We do not really need to eat more than what our body requires. Oh well, that my next post….

Another big reason why I can grow almost anything besides giving Tender Loving Care is because I have Good Karma. Yes, I think I have the “green” touch. With Good Karma, the Ying and Yang are balance in the house.

Another personal thing to share with you all, my mother just passed away and I put a little bit of my mother and father ashes in the pot!!

Next post I will tell you the name for my baby jade plant…yes my baby jade plant is no longer a baby anymore—It is like a football blocker linesman.

Anyway, keep the emails coming and if I can help you grow a big jade plant and if you have any questions, shoot me an email at info@homecaredomains.com

Time to repot the Jade Plant

Hello Jade Lovers,

It has been 2 years and it is time to change the soil.

Do you know when it is time to change the soil and/or replace the pot?

Smell Smell Smell and touch.

Smell the soil- if it does not smell like the real soil aka Manure-like aroma(follow your nose), then it is time to change the soil. In wine, we called it the “terroir”

Touch: It feels so good playing the soil with your hands. I love love love to to dig/hold/caress a good lump of clean moist dark rich -a little bit of gritty soil.

When you are going to change the soil in the pot, do not water it for a couple of days. You want the soil to be a little dry. When the soil is dry, feel it–if it feels like sandy, then you know it is time to change the soil. It shows that it has run out of the nutrients.

If you look at the pictures, I do not use any shovels or the digger. All I needed was a spoon like tool(or a big spoon) , a bucket and a tarp to prevent dirt from getting into the clean carpet.

Now- start digging with your hands. Remember when we were kids, we play on beach, oh yea- it brings back good memories of building sand castles.

When you are digging the soil with your hands, feel the soil, feel the roots-if they are soft and moist, then you got a big problem. It means the roots are rotten-decaying- and the soil is infected with “cancer”

Slowly and gently, scoop the soil out of the pot and put in the bucket.  With that big of the jade plant I have, it took me like 2 hrs to scoop  out the soil as much as I can. Yes,I have someone to hold the jade plant when the soil is quite low in the pot. Yes, the jade plant is heavy but feels so good to hold her-just like holding a nice looking naked body(LMAO)

While I was digging and scooping the soil, I feel the roots. I have to prune some of the roots. Look at the inside of the pot- are they any signs of fungus or white spots or any spots? You can clean the inside of the pot or just replace it with a bigger pot.

When to replace the pot? Common sense tells you that the roots need to grow and explore. It is advisable to use a slightly bigger pot and another good tip is—get wheels!!!

That my biggest regret- I did not have wheels roller underneath the pot. Pretty soon, I need a bigger pot, oh well, when the time comes, I will have to have a pizza party and invite some people over.

After you have scooped out the soil with your hands( yes-hands- forget about manicure for once), doesn’t it feels some kind of accomplishment seeing the dirt in your fingernails???

It is time to shower the jade plant with the good clean “organic” moist  soil packed with high nutrients and protein for her to grow bigger and produce more babies.

What kind of soil to use? Well,  you can use the any good soil from Home Depot( I do not work for HD but own stocks in them)- I have to get 2 big bags(2 cubic feet) of soil- any clean indoor potting soil is good enough.

**** Do not use any of those fertilizer sticks–it cause more harm than good to your plants. They are detrimental!!!  Why you might ask? Well, it is like “OVERFEEDING” DO YOU LIKE TO OVER FEED YOUR KIDS ?

As you know, most pets are sick not because they are underfed, but they are being overFED!!! Look at yourself in the mirror- honey–am I fat??( killer question)

The fresh soil you put in the pot has more than enough nutrients the plants need. Remember– it is  patience and lots of love that help the plant or any human being grow.

When you put the new soil in the pot- do not forcefully press the soil, just gently drop the fresh soil and let gravity takes it course. Once a while just gently pack it down.

Wait for a couple of days, then add more soil to the pot.

Do not water the soil as it is already moist out of the bag. Wait for 3-4 days and then  give a good through watering.

NOW you are done- doesn’t it feel so good to the smell of fresh soil in the house-Man I love the smell- it brings freshness and aliveness to the plants,house and you.

2 weeks ago, I had to help a couple re-pot their 10yrs old jade plant and took me like a whole day to do it. They even paid me a small fee to do it- but I really enjoyed doing it. The soil has not  being changed for 8 yrs and was in pretty bad condition, dry and sandy and worst of all, root decay. Had to cut the roots off.

Now- they are growing happily in the new pot and fresh soil.

Anyway, it took me like 2 days to do all the re-poting as I have about 10+ different kind of jade plants.
I washed down the roots and the leaves.

Since I changed the soil, the jade plant has been growing like crazy.As a matter of fact, all my my jade plants are growing very well and healthy.
Remember jade lovers, Jade Plants are living breathing beings and they will bring you happiness, success, good health and lots of prosperity– Good feng shui and Good Karma to your home and to your family and love ones.

The jade is so big that there is no way she can be moved out of the house. She goes with the house-she is part of the house. A beautiful living breathing human being in the living room. Call me crazy all you want and yes I do talk to her all the time.

The last time I changed the soil was in 2007 and the soil I used is the one I got from Home Depot, nothing special soil—just the clean good soil.

As you can see from the pictures, I have to put the long table against the pot to prevent the pot from tipping over. She has to be transferred to a bigger, newer, and a more stable pot with wheels. Don’t ask me how I am going to do it, maybe a couple of Hulks will help me out.

During Summers, the leaves grow like crazy and buds start shooting up. I have to break the buds off. Water once a week.

During Winters, water once every 2 weeks.

No special fertilizers needed, just good old TLC.

I have given some of the shoots to my friends and all of them are doing very well.

Anyway, I think this is the largest jade plant in the world, if not, please send me your jade plant(s) pictures. You can post your pictures at Forum .

I always love Jade plants as they bring the good ying and yang, peaceful harmony to the house. See that lottery ticket at the jade flower……my time has come for the big one $$$.

I have a couple of jade plants of different varieties, the big leaf, the climbing one, the long finger leave, the spiny leaf and the small thin one.

There is one jade plant with the pink flower and it was taken at my Aunt’s house in Melaka.

Yes, I do have a big garden with lots of fruit tress and a big vegetable garden. I have Asian pear trees, regular pear tree Italian prunes, fig, apples, Rainer cherry trees, Apricot, Japanese persimmon, and who knows what. Also included are blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry, I grow lots of green beans, Chinese pea pods, Chinese spinach, zucchini, char, spinach, asparagus and more than I can remember.

I buy most of the seeds at the 99cent store , 10 packets at a dollar. How can you beat that!!!

Anyway, if you have any good garden pictures, please post at the forum and share them with us.

Regards,

Chris
