I'm currently working on a new product for where I work at. It'll be a solar powered drip irrigation system that utilized rain water collection.

The next versions will be designed for greenhouses.

Cool! Will there be various sizes so that the backyard gardener can utilize it, or is it going to be designed mostly for the big 60 foot tunnel houses?

After a couple of weeks of saving up my tomatoes I finally had enough to do a 'sauce day' this past weekend and canned up 30 pints of pizza/pasta sauce.

I also did 19 pints of dilly beans, 8 half pints of pickled garlic, and 3 quarts of pickled eggs, while I had my canning gear up and running in the downstairs kitchen.

Now I'm saving tomatoes up for a "soup day" to put away a few quarts of tomato soup base. I usually put up about 10-12 quarts of it, for tomato soup and for a chili base during the black months. I LOVE chili in the winter; soak some beans overnight, brown up some venison burger in the morning and toss all the ingredients into a pot with some extra water and some dried hot peppers from the garden and let it simmer on the woodstove all day....
Nothing better than coming home to that after a long day in a cold snap!

Also; gratuitous shot of the sunflowers that have started blooming, and have actually gotten TALLER since they developed flower heads.

Thats a good stash.
I froze all the tomatoes in a sauce and salsa. We had tomatoes out of our ears this year. Still got watermelon on vine. Cantaloupe is about done. Peppers still going strong.
Jungle garden is barren now.
Need to plant fall crop of something next month.

My hot pepper plants are pretty well loaded too. What varieties can you grow in Texas? I imagine probably all of them...
The only ones that I've had any luck with up here are Jalapeno varieties, Cheyenne Chilis, Piquins, and a Paper Lantern variety. Everything else has produced stunted plants and no fruit.

Jalapenos and a hot banana. And a chili petine. Hot little bastard. I let the birds eat it.
Any pepper does good. Want it hot don't water it as much.
I want to make some jams. Watermelon jam came out fair. Watermelon rind same. I want to experiment more.

My goal is to have a variety of different sized kits for various sized gardens/green houses. Where I work, all of our products cater to the DIYer in mind.

I'm hoping to be finished with this project in a few months. I've got most of the math sorted out, just got to locate the components and put together the prototype.

I will definitely will post more about this project when I get sometime to work on it

Here's a little garden bed we put together about 2 months ago. It's two 4x4 boxes. My wife planted a zucchini plant that has totally dominated. There was also a seed from a pumpkin (plant at top right) and a gourd plant (behind the zucchini) that was in the compost we used to fill it. We had about 8 lettuce plants that we've already eaten. Currently there's lettuce, bell peppers, snap peas (in the pot), cherry tomatoes, basil and a strawberry plant.
