Harvest 2015

20 August 2015 in Chilijournal

This year's harvest is probably less than 2014. Bad weather in the spring, less plants and experiments with soil which turned out to be suboptimal. Not all variants seem to like compressed cocos fibre. The stuff can hold a lot of water, but the plants contantly have "wet feet" and it dries out pretty fast. The turfless soil I tried this year is much better. I will use that again next year. Only downside: it's more annoying to transport. I could probably order it at amazon, but that really feels weird.

So, this year's leaderboards:
