  1. P.S> every plant in my garden is from seed also so it takes a bit longer.
    You got hybrid bigboys and better boys. Their good and I usually plant them
    but this year I went all from seed and did beefsteaks. Im hoping they will
    come in good.

  2. Good deal! Sounds like a healthy plant. Cant wait for mine to come in. I
    love okra!! Take care.

  3. your already getting okra?? Man you had to of starting inside and
    transplanted or live in a hot climate. My dads got potatoes I didnt plant
    any and got all the above but my okra is no where near ready. Its Crimson
    Spineless. Will be glad when it does hit though. Going to stock the deep
    freezer good this year with a bunch of goodies.

  4. Oh and if your fruit is being supported up in the netting, you don’t have
    to worry about underside rot and you can grow invasive stuff like the
    melons in less space 😉

  5. Great Video….Question on your Dads all purpose tonic. I just have a
    gallon sprayer. Can I just mix up everything in the gallon sprayer and
    spray directly on the leaves or should I add water to dillute it? thanks

  6. Reaganite I went and bought me a compact hose end sprayer. They only had
    the 50 gallon ones, do I still pour in the mixture like normal and just
    spray the plants? Sorry for all the questions just trying to figure out how
    much to use. Thanks

  7. I use a 20 gallon hose end sprayer. All of the ingredients are conditioned
    on that. A 50 gal. sprayer will dilute the tonic too much. You can turn it
    into a 25 gallon sprayer by finding a drill bit that fits the vent hole,
    going up once size and making it wider. If you have an Ace hardware nearby,
    they should have 20 gallon sprayers though. They’re handy for putting the
    apple juice into for setting blossoms too 😉

  10. Thanks Stymye. I can’t wait. I’ve got a salsa recipe that puts Totstitos
    Restraunt style to shame. Plus, I’m tired of paying for it lol.

    year!! O well.. looks good man!

  14. I have never seen anyone trellis watermelon, pumpkins or cantaloupes. Wont
    they be too heavy to hang as they grow and ripen?? I have always been told
    they need to run on the ground. Maybe you know something I dont….Please

  18. You can trellis those items, if you give the melons support. You can tie
    off the support to the trellis netting and support the bottom of the melon
    and then tie off to another section of netting. Think of it like a hammock
    for the fruit. I’ve also heard of folks using fruit “bras” for the melons,
    but my wife won’t let me do that because of what the neighbors might think

    about a 2 1/2″ diameter. I call it an Okra tree. LOL We’re in zone 7b in
    Western/NW Arkansas.
