The Biggest trick in growing in Dairy Do & other potting mixes is not over watering.This plant has been over watered the past month.Over 4 gallons of water dumped in bag to ensure roots were not hitting dry soil.Hind sight is 20/20. Will back off now & let it go a little drier.I will grow this 10 gallon grow bag on the deck this summer & bring back in next winter.Like a tree it will keep producing I'm told for several years.You learn something new every year.Join us to learn about Shade Clothe & Hoop house screens.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9sZ3uur8-8&t=155s Part 1 is linked up in the description of video. Leave a comment & share video & you could win a 1911 Urena & more Brandt/Bubba seeds April 1st Seed Giveaway

This was 10 years ago, My we have grown. This was the melon sisters the year I grew the 260 melon 228- 219- & 192. I was a legend in my own mind that year.lol The Youtube was a way to share with my friends on BP I was Handyhomegrown on BP then.The next few years was bit ugly at times as I was hit with a few nay sayers who didnt like me stepping on there toes.One guy told me You climbed the ladder so fast you stepped on some toes that thought they were in front of you. We were just breaking the ice with the internet & sharing growing tips.Back in the 90s it was all tight lipped & only a few would share REAL TIPS.It was very political as the world is today.But the internet has really grown this hobby.Hence the "Keep it a secret,but go tell a friend"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7soP0-BgdWY&t=381s
