Un pensiero su “urban farming: mobile edible walls”
Hello, Sebastien, here my answers:
1. containers: ok all types of containers, but large enough for the plants you are going to plant.
2. Vegetables for pots: eggplant, Swiss chard, celery ribbed, cabbage, cucumber, zucchini, green beans, peas, peppers. for crops in pots better to choose the variety of small size, such as carrots whit short roots. To combine some plants togheter in a pot you should follow the simple but effective rules of companion planting.
3. Soil: The soil for pot must have a neutral ph, no particularly acidic unless you want to grow acidophilic plants such as camellias and azaleas. It must be light, then composed of peat, pumice and compost combined in proper proportions to avoid waterlogging damaging the roots.
4. Out of pot tomatoes: you can also make crops off the ground with the only support of water and guardians to hold the plants grown. We are talking about cultivation techniques more refined than the traditional ones, such as hydroponics.
1. Contenitori: ogni tipo di contenitori, purchè piuttosto capienti per le piante che si dovranno porre a dimora
2. Ortaggi per i vasi: melanzana, bietola, sedano da coste, cavolo cappuccio, cetriolo, zucchina, fagiolino verde, pisello, peperone. Per le coltivazioni in vaso scegli le varietà di dimensioni ridotte, come ad esempio le carote a radice corta. Per mettere insieme alcune piante negli stessi vasi è opportuno seguire le regole semplici ma efficaci del companion planting.
3. Terriccio: il terriccio da vaso deve avere un ph neutro, non particolarmente acido, a meno che non si vogliano coltivare piante acidofile come camelie e azalee. Deve essere leggero, quindi composto da torba, pomice e compost combinati nelle giuste proporzioni per evitare ristagni idrici dannosi alle radici.
4. Pomodori fuori vaso: è possibile fare anche coltivazioni fuori suolo con il supporto di sola acqua e di tutori per sorreggere le piante coltivate. Stiamo parlando di tecniche di coltivazione più raffinate rispetto a quelle tradizionali, come ad esempio le colture idroponiche.
