300-Off-4-Plants-End-612x1024

Is it possible to get 300 lbs of tomatoes off 4 plants in one 4ft x 4ft raised bed? Is it possible to grow huge tomatoes in Nevada? Totally doable! Even if you’re not a seasoned green thumb. Even if you DON’T have a greenhouse.

Here’s How!

Grow Huge Tomatoes in Nevada (300 lbs of them from 4 plants)

  1. Build a 4ftx4ft raised bed 12 inches deep. Use any scrap wood you have. As long as it stays together, you’re good to go.
  2. Fill that bed with 8 inches of Full Circle’s KICK Garden Soil (leave room for drenching with water).
  3. Plant 4 baby tomato plants. Need an easy planting guide for growing tomatoes in Nevada? Click Here.  Be sure to grow awesome heirloom tomatoes that grow like crazy here in Nevada. We suggest:
    • Northern Lights
    • Mexico
    • Juaquian Jewel
    • Striped German300 Off 4 Plants Begin | Grow Huge Tomatoes Nevada
  4. Cover soil with 1 inch of PROTECT to hold water and keep the soil happy.
  5. Fill that bed with 2-3 inches of water for a full soak only once every 3-4 days (“flood style” because KICK and PROTECT will hold water awesomely).300 lbs Off 4 Plants Mid | Grow Huge Tomatoes Nevada | Full Circle Soils and Compost
  6. BOOST with 1/4 inch of Full Circle’s BOOST twice during the growing season (about every 6-8 weeks). Even though KICK has enough nutrients to grow awesome for an entire growing season, you’re growing 4 hungry (and BIG) tomatoe plants, and they’re going to love eating up nutrients. So, replenish with BOOST.

That’s it! Now you’re set to grow huge tomatoes in Nevada (and anywhere really).

Herbs and vegetables to plant together

It’s no secret, spending time with friends is good for you! But did you know that plants have friends too?  Placing compatible plants next to each other allows them to benefit the company. This strategy, known as companion planting, helps deter pests, increase the yield of your veggies and improve flavor. So garden with future meals in mind! Here is a list of plants that prefer to be neighbors in the garden and at your table.

Tomato & Basil: Tomatoes have lots of friends in the garden, but they are best buds with Basil. The aroma from Basil deters insects from noshing on precious tomato fruit. Basil is also known to improve the flavor of the tomatoes because of shared soil nutrients. Tomato and basil … a timeless culinary combo.

Sage & Bush Beans: Similar to the basil and tomato relationship, sage protects bush beans from hungry critters. Parasites detest the smell of sage, which protects bean plants. Bush Beans also grow well with cucumbers, eggplants, garlic, kale and strawberries. Careful! Three’s a crowd if you plant cucumbers too, as sage and cucumber do NOT get along.

Parsley & Asparagus: Planting parsley alongside asparagus will stimulate the asparagus plant’s growth. Parsley also keeps Asparagus beetles at bay. So what’s in it for Parsley? It just so happens that Parsley likes partial shade, so these two get along quite well!

Strawberries & Thyme: Thyme helps strawberries thrive while also attracting pollinators to your garden. These two also have a common friend in spinach. Throw them all together and you’ve got a classic combo for salads and other fresh dishes.

These Plants Are Friends With Everybody!

    • Marigolds: Your whole garden will benefit from Marigolds! Plant these fragrant beauties throughout your garden to confuse pests as they search for their favorite fruits and veggies. Marigolds can be eaten too! Add dried petals to soups, salads or even brew it as a tea!
    • Garlic: Garlic isn’t just for warding off vampires, it deters aphids and beetles too! These pests are not a fan of garlic’s strong smell, and who doesn’t want a little fresh garlic for their dishes?
    • Chamomile: Like thyme, chamomile attracts pollinators like hoverflies and wasps. Planting chamomile next to other herbs can also enhance their flavor. Way to go, chamomile!

Whether you’ve identified seeding or sodding as the best approach for your yard, Full Circle is going to make things EASY. Who doesn’t like easy? While sowing seeds is typically cheaper, sodding typically gets you to a full, lush, attractive lawn quicker. So, whichever option you choose as more appealing, see below for some helpful tips (no tricks needed).

The Best Process to Seed Your Lawn (or Re-Seed)

Let’s get right to it:
1. Rake existing bare spots across entire desired coverage area
2. Get a seed spreader and spread those seeds
3. Spread 1/4 inch of Full Circle’s BOOST (crucial)
4. Watering newly sown seeds: Twice a day, 6 minutes per cycle. If possible, set morning timers to 8:00 AM and afternoon timers at 3:00 PM. Remember, you have to keep the seeds wet for 2 weeks. Then water normally.
Now, get your lawnmower tuned up because you’re about to be trimming your lawn in as little as 3 weeks.

Craig Witt, compost consultant, looking over food waste and organic waste brought to Full Circle Soils & Compost in Nevada

Reno-Tahoe businesses send a LOT of perfectly compostable stuff to landfills. In some cases, up to 35% of solid waste is organic material–everything from restaurant food scraps to yard trimmings–which could be recycled through composting.

We’re here to help your business, institution or organization benefit by doing just that.

Full Circle’s green waste diversion can help your business cut costs, appeal to consumers, gain competitive advantages against rivals and, ultimately, capitalize off of “going green.”

Does My Business Produce Green Waste? Probably!

The rule of our large-scale green thumb is this: if stuff is made out of something that used to be alive, we can probably take it and transform it into rich, ultra-productive compost.

For many businesses, that’s a lot of stuff. Such as …

Food Scraps

  • Leftovers and spoiled food
  • Bread, grains and pasta
  • Coffee grounds with paper filter
  • Tea and tea bags
  • Dairy, eggshells and eggs
  • Fruit (pits and shells too) & Veggies
  • Meat (including bones)
  • Seafood (including shellfish)

Food Soiled Paper

  • Coffee filters
  • Greasy pizza boxes
  • Paper products: cups and plates, ice cream containers, bags, napkins, tissues and towels, take-out boxes and containers
  • Waxy paper milk and juice cartons

Plants

  • Branches and brush
  • Flowers and floral trimmings
  • Leaves, grasses and weeds
  • Tree trimmings

Other

  • Cotton balls and cotton swabs
  • Animal products
  • Vegetable wood crates
  • Waxed cardboard and paper

Sound like a lot to sift through? Not for us! We’ve been doing it every day for over 20 years!

When you call us for green waste consulting, we’ll help you determine the what, how much and where of your own personalized green waste diversion program. It’s perfect for …

  • Casinos / Resorts / Hotels
  • Restaurants / Cafes
  • Wholesalers / Grocery Stores
  • Schools
  • Office Buildings
  • Parks and Municipal Departments
  • Golf Courses / Homeowners Associations

Nevada Lawn Reseed In Only 14 days! (spread Sept 20th, photos October 4th)

Nevada Lawn Reseed In Only 14 days! (spread Sept 20th, photos October 4th)

Fall Turf Reseed: How to Prep NOW for an Amazing Spring Lawn!

URGENT! Do this before mid-October if you want healthy, amazing lawns come springtime!

Winter likes to jump onto the scene with a combo of cold weather, short days and a general beating-and-a-half for our lawns. But with a little preparation now, you can reestablish your lawn before the cold kicks in, to ensure your turf stays strong and resilient through winter… and comes back lush, lavish and healthy in the spring!

Follow these simple steps to accomplish your very own Full Circle Fall Turf Reseed. And check out that photographic evidence… of reseed results in just 14 days–woohoo!

Step 1 – Rake

Use a heavy rake (metal) and rake out the native soil bare spot or areas in the turf that need more growth. This creates a shallow seed bed.

Step 2 – Spread

Spread 5 lbs of drought-tolerant turf grass seed for every 1,000 square feet over the bare spots or turf area that needs more growth.

Step 3 – BOOST

Spread 1/4 inch application of BOOST over top.

Step 4 – Water

To establish good, deep root penetration for future drought control, water twice a day for 7 days at 20 mins a time to keep the new seed wet and allow the BOOST to soak in. For the next 7 days, water twice a day at 10 mins a time.

By the end of those first two weeks, your lawn should already be looking pretty sweet. Go ahead and water once a day for 15 mins for 5 more days. Then cut back to normal watering right up until everyone shuts off their watering systems for the winter!

Your lawn should already be nicely reestablished with a healthy thickness, just in time forthat cold to set in. And voila– look at you and your lawn alreadyall ready for winter!

Step 5 – Spring Boost

When we finally make it through the winter, add just one more application of BOOST and …

Step 6 – BOOM!

That’s it! You did it! Now go enjoy your uber-lush, super-lavish, totally healthy lawn!

SPOILER ALERT! Your lawn’s metamorphosis is going to look like this…TO SEE THE AMAZING PHOTOS CLICK HERE!
