One Year Ago

We were dealing with a devastating frost (I know, I know… the new journal with categories are coming soon!) and the PTF’s urban homestead was featured on the front page ‘Home’ section of the LA Times with an article titled O PIONEERS IN PASADENA

My how time flies!

Week Three Harvest

In our 10 K harvest challenge.

Pounds harvested so far: 154. Only 9,846 more to go!

That’s A Wrap

The last in a series long of journal posts today ( total of 6 I think!) Not that I covered everything, but hopefully our readers are now caught up with what’s been happening.

Next week PTF will be tabling at UCLA participating in FOCUS THE NATION-Global Warming Solutions for America

See you next week.

    Greetings in the Name of the Lord!

    I love your blog and I am trying to learn what I can about your gardening process. I want to incorporate your salad-growing process in my garden this summer. Usually I grow well-spaced lettuces, but I want to grow those baby lettuces and other greens. I don’t plan on having raised beds like you, but I thought I would make a box frame for baby lettuces that I could move when I need to till in the garden. So, my question is: Do you broadcast the seed mix or do you space them? I really like the idea of just broadcasting the seed. I do that will beans and peas, etc., in wide rows. So easy. Also, how long do the plants last, getting mowed regularly? I am planning on putting my lettuce box underneath the trellis that has tomatoes, melons, cukes, and sqaush on it, for the shade. Will that help them last? I guess, maybe I am asking for an indepth treatment of raising salads. 😉 I know you are very, very busy. I just thought it wouldn’t hurt to ask. 😀 Keep up the good work.

    In Christ,
