Tomatoes!
Tomatoes! The students at OSU are doing a fantastic job of planting tomatoes where our amino acids and fava bean cover crop trials were over the winter. We will soon find out if after mowing the cover crop had any benefit for the subsequent crop of organic tomatoes. rok-tomatoes
Giant Pumpkin Seedlings
Giant Pumpkin Seedlings Shout out thanks to the organic club at ‪Oregon State University‬ We gave them some champion strains of *Giant Pumpkin* and *Giant Watermelon* seedlings to try their hand at growing. The seeds were gifted to us by Susie in North Carolina to see if leveraging the biostimulant power of amino acids in ‪Be-1 and going organic can help beat her 1,000 lb record from a few years back. Each pumpkin requires 1,000 sf per and the watermelons - 750 sf so we planted right under where they kept their old ‪#‎compost‬ piles, so should already be plenty nutrients and indigenous microbes to drive crazy. ‪Go Beavs‬! rok-pumpkins
Okinawan Goya comparison
Okinawan Goya comparison (L) Okinawan Goya "bitter melon" fruit fed Be-1. (R) Fed conventional fertilizers. The Be-1 fed is much larger and tastier. Goya is very bitter. It is crunchy and terrific in many Japanese dishes (esp. salads). #AwakenYourSoil rok-cucumber
