PaNoy’s Garden

I didn’t have a chance to visit PaNoy’s Garden this year, and he is nice enough to email me photos of his garden to share. All photos were taken by PaNoy.

A view from the patio deck down to the garden.

PaNoy said “it’s been a warm winter so I got things on the grown sooner than previous years.  I plan on leaving the banana tree in the ground this time around.  I also planted one of the guava tree and see how it will do.  Hopefully it will grow substantially to survive the winter.”

  1. What I understand about most fruit tree, blueberry for example, is that you remove all the young fruit on the first year of planting, so that all the sun’s energy goes toward making stronger root system. Most folks like to leave the fruit on the tree for admiration, do not do that…the sun’s energy need to go toward producing the root the first year. A better root system will lead to healthy and stronger tree in the long run. Be sure to compost and water weekly the first year, fertilize, and prune in the fall. Pruning will allow air to circulate and give the shape to your tree. I also like to plant onion and garlic around the base of the tree; a type of companion planting that will keep unwanted beetles or borers from seeking out the root of the tree…just like we seek young bamboo shoots, it’s tasty:)) Good luck with it.

    Unfortunately, I should have replanted my young strawberry in August of last year. I replanted them in March of this year (too late), that’s why the fruit are not like at the farm. Also, with strawberry it can take up to 2nd or 3rd year to get better tasting fruits, and then you have to replant…ironic But at the farm, I think they fertilize them like crazy.

    • Thanks PaNoy for the tips. I think the strawberry farm they plant them every 5 years, and that’s why Ira Farm in our area quit doing it since it was that time to replant all his strawberries again.

      I hope to be able to plant many fruit trees of my own in the near future, just have to save up to buy a piece of land.

  2. Wow Panoy’s garden deserves a blog of it’s own. 😉 This is a truly backyard garden oasis. Love to see this garden when the kiwi’s and blueberries are ready for harvest.

    I am actually reading this e-book Joy Of Hobby Farming . Kindle edition is only $1.99! There are neat section about growing strawberries as well as composting.
