Greenhouse Tomatoes and Other Vegetables

Greenhouse Tomatoes and Other Vegetables

Here’s a look at how the tomatoes are doing, along with squash, peppers and cucumbers, in the greenhouse. A long overdue update on the Moringa. And a little mustard, cabbage, and broccoli outside.

    Do the big beef’s yield as well as the Dutch varieties like trust? Because I want to grow my own hydroponic greenhouse tomatoes but was confused about what varieties do well.

    Just found your channel and I am so glad. We finished our first greenhouse two weeks ago , just a small one and its our first. We’re real excited about learning as much as we can about growing vegetables over the winter in it. Have had gardens for a long time but want try this as well. Will be watching often. Thanks and God Bless

    How often do you fill water trays under grow bags

  5. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 5:45 pm

    @ttitanic121 LOL…. I spent most of today "out" there, not "in" there, working on the new GH. I’m finally making decent progress. Whew ! 🙂

    Thank you sir. This was my first greenhouse. I finished the second one last fall. Its a lot larger. And I have plans for a third one for strictly aquaponics and hydroponics. Its gonna require a great deal of planning, so I’ll be taking my time getting it going.

    @mhpgardener Yes I’m sure a dwarf orange will go great, I wish I had the heat for oranges two but I don’t. I just started posting videos of my lemon plants that I bought in Aug. I got them when I realized that when I’m canning things it often calls for lemon juice. Love your channel keep up the great work.

    Neem. It has multiple uses.

  9. A J on March 22, 2022 at 5:50 pm

    Hello how do you keep the temperature down ? Looks like summer when you took this video ? Shade cloth ?

  10. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 5:50 pm

    Generally… compost, peat, perlite, potting mix, and some type of fertilizers.

  13. Simple Living on March 22, 2022 at 5:55 pm

  15. ttitanic121 on March 22, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    :))…no need to reply, get back in there!…lol

  16. franzb69 on March 22, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    a bit of advice. if you like eating basil. i think, you should grow basil. coz when you grow basil close to tomatoes, eggplants and peppers they grow a lot better and make more fruit. even improves the taste!

    ain’t no bull. it’s for real. =D

    with your moringa, you can clone those plants by just sticking the stems of those moringa that you trimmed and they’ll grow to another new plant/tree. we eat the leaves and include them in soups and salads out here in the philippines.

  17. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    @pilgrimfarmer Haha,,thank you. Well, I like fresh food in the winter too, and I aint gonna find it in the store. I hope you get one soon. I’m sure you’d enjoy it.

  18. Shane Towne on March 22, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    Great video

  19. John Taylor on March 22, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    Wow Bobby! I would love to grow tomatoes from seed like that. I always have to buy pre grown plants. I have some seeds but here in AZ its hard to use a greenhouse. How would you recommend I try and start my seeds.

    what do you use to grow your stuff

  21. Victoria Nguyen on March 22, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    You have an awsome greenhouse . I wish i have one

  22. Spiritual Matters on March 22, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    Great video and advice about being careful with planting mediums… nice greenhouse, too!

  23. bernie018 on March 22, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    What size grow bags you use for your plants? Where is the place to buy them . great idea. God bless you. I study online with Arnold Murray from Arkansas. Shepherdschapel.. Also another man who Doesnt give out his name Justthoughtsstudies on youtube.

  24. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    It depends on the type and variety. Determinates tend to produce a lot all at once. I primarily grow indeterminates, and they can continue producing for several months under good conditions.

  25. Mike Kemper on March 22, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Sir,what mixture do you use for your dirt for tomatoes? They look wonderful.

  26. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    @SteveHarpster Thank you sir. 🙂

  27. Lois Laney on March 22, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Things are off to a great start. Everything is growing beautifully. Where do you start your seeds? Are they in the gh too?

  28. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    @MissPatchwork Yes mam..not too bad at all. Still living and learning. 🙂

  29. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    @franzb69 I’m not much for basil, but if the plants like it I’ll have to look into it. No bull huh ? LOL

  30. Steve N Vegas on March 22, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    wow great job. keep the videos coming

  31. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    @jsddf8455 Thx John. I don’t do it any different than others as far as seed starting. I use the 6pks sometimes, and other times I’ll do what they call "dense planting", where I just put a bunch of seed in a container and then separate them to individual pots when they get big enough, the soon the better. I think tomatoes are very forgiving, hard to mess them up. I guess you know why I like them huh? shhhhh !

  32. MrPaka420 on March 22, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Nice Bobby, we improve with every season, knowing what to do and what not to do. All comes trial and error, we learn and pass on the great info so others can prevent mistakes we have made in the past. Have a Blessed day, keep the great info coming, and yes nice to see and have harvests coming even though the cold and freezing temps are on their way.
    Peace

  33. vnswamy2008 on March 22, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    @mhpgardener In india we use to take finger thick branch cut to about a foot long plant wet /damp soil up to half the height and cut top end with wet clay/cowdunk keep moist root in few weeks, i thing saw in one of african web site showing similar pictures
    happy garrdening

  34. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    @bkbball22 Thanks. Thats a great idea. I’ll have the space and height to work with in the next GH. Maybe a dwarf orange too?

  35. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    @mediamaker2000 The whole time I was lining those buckets up, I felt like I was being watched. Now I know..it was YOU ! Actually I was using the purlins overhead as a guide. Took a little adjusting, but they’re close enough for me. Thank you…I always clean up before I do any filming. You know, like when company is coming over. 😉 BTW..can Michelle use some more Hab’s? I have way too many right now.

  36. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    @quilterinthewoods62 LOL… I won’t be waiting that long though…they are already turning. Got my eye on a nice one, perfect sandwich size. Just waiting for it to get good and ripe. No blushing maters for me. 🙂

  37. plain2growJim on March 22, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Great video! I wish I had a big ol’ greenhouse like yours! On my dream list as I approach retirement, I guess. I added you to my Youtube channel. Keep up the good growing!

  38. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    I was using 5 gal growbags. As for the best place, I would check various hydroponic stores online or locally, and just make cost comparisons.

  39. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    @MrPaka420 Thanks Mr P Like everything else, practice makes perfect, or at least better. 🙂

  40. quilterinthewoods62 on March 22, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Oh my goodness!!! Will you have fresh tomatoes for Thanksgiving & christmas? Way to grow Bobby!

  41. TheSonoman1976 on March 22, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    @mhpgardener I’m using a mixture of vermiculite and perlite in my raised beds and it seems to work. I just think growing in containers, whether it be raised beds, bags, or buckets, takes more water because if you don’t have drainage…well, you know. I have to stay on top of my tomatoes in the summer cause I grow them in pots. Boy….do those things stay thirsty or what?

  42. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    @loislaney23 Thank you mam. I start everything in the GH. Makes it simple for me. 🙂

  43. Greg Boshell on March 22, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    is your tomatoes regular tomato seeds or greenhouse seeds

  44. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    @TheSonoman1976 Thank you kindly ! For some reason or other, the buckets don’t seem to hold water as well as the grow bags. So I’m just working in the perlite, trying to find the right combination. Still much to be learned. 😉

  45. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Thanks. Those are called "grow bags". I bought them from a hydroponics store online. Most of the stores carry them. I don’t have a local hydro store, so I have to buy everything online.

  46. mediamaker2000 on March 22, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    For some reason I am picturing you out in the greenhouse with plumb lines and chalk lines lining up those buckets! LOL I’d be one proud puppy if I could make lines as straight as those! I like how your greenhouse always looks so clean and professional. I’m always impressed by that in your videos. The plants are looking great!

  47. ads92557 on March 22, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Did you build your tomato cages for the indeterminate tomatoes?

  48. Pilgrim Prepper on March 22, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Man… You are a gardening MACHINE!!!

    Fantastic results you’re getting there Bobby, I only have enough ambition to do a spring and summer garden.

    Maybe someday I’ll set up a greenhouse, and if that happens, I’ll have your hard work to use for reference.

    Thanks for the great videos.

  49. mhpgardener on March 22, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    I’m not sure, but I think what you’re seeing are the handles for the buckets.

  50. 1crazynordlander on March 22, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Not related to plants but about the varying temps during the four seasons. I always had better luck raising heavy chickens starting in late July and butchering in late September or early October. I’m in Minnesota so it gets cold much sooner here. Chicks like the heat and as they get heavy they like it cool.
