May 13 th we started planting outside.

Our neighbors thought we were crazy this year because we started planting a month earlier normal. June 1st is the earliest we normally begin planting outside. This year we planted the corn on May 17,2014.

The Borlotti beans are to the right. The weather was unseasonably warm this year. The corn and beans had grown so big that we risk loosing them if we kept them inside any longer. One thing we learned is that we planted 4 weeks too early inside the house. The grow light speeds up the growing process more than we ever imagined.




This is what the corn looks like today June 8, 2014. Unfortunately you can’t see the two rows of corn that we planted directly into the ground in this picture they are about one inches tall. We now know planting them inside early is the way to go for our Swedish climate.


We have also planted 4 rows of peas and 1 row of string beans.

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
