Updates of our Vegetable Plants using Electroculture

  1. Ken says:

    Interesting, my only first concern would be the frequency it would put into the ground and attract ants. All of our solar equipment and the such always bring them in..

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      So far, we haven’t had any issues with ants, but we will see if it stays this way.

    I’ve never heard of that! My first thought is having metal near food intended to be consumed. I’ll have to look that up. I am very interested to see how your experiment turns out though! I always love how you share everything you two are doing! Your garden is turning out so awesome! We don’t have much property but my husband loves his garden area. We have been eating from it so much lately!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I can’t wait until we can start harvesting and eating some of the produce from our garden! Fresh garden veggies are the best!

    I’m very interested in how this comes out.

    Everything I know about electricity and gardening and geology makes me think there is no way for this to work.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I am really intrigued to see how our plants turn out at the end of this year.

    My Mom was a master gardener before that was a thing. This was back in the 60’s, when she’s planted any fruit trees or it vegetable garden each year, she always had a handful if pennies to throw in the hole. She always had the most beautiful trees and garden, so lush, so perfect. So there must be something to the copper addition. I use copper foliage spray to prevent fungus and diseases so maybe in the dirt it works systemically which maybe more sense. Really great idea I might need to try this. Thanks for the reminder!!

    How did the copper wire goes?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Our plants were beautiful this year. We will definitely be using the copper wire again next year.

  6. Oye D&D!
    I see your last comment from 23 Nov 2023 reads “our plants were beautiful this year…”
    You got some updates?? Did you by chance keep some beds antenna-free to as a control for this experiment? I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to hear how it all worked out.
    On that note, I’ve been reading a bit, and it seems the original design for this, as shared by CultivateElevate at https://cultivateelevate.com/content/Electroculture1927.pdf, shows copper wire attached to the antenna apparatus with a long wire that runs the length of a furrow and is buried and anchored at the end. Fabulous read, btw. Anyhoo, we’re down here in zone 10, so things are just about to get going and I will be using some antennae this year. Just wanted to see how everyone else who is using this is doing with it and compare the different apparatus.
    Love the raised beds too! Another project we have on the books, and I really like the aesthetic you’ve achieved. Picket fence is classy classic and so so homey.
    Cheers and good growing!

    Check your soil for worms. One way used to attract worms to the surface is using low voltage. I’d be interested in knowing if this provided electrical current provides for the worms to avoid the area. The plants may grow larger but you may have also negated “the worms” and what they do for the soil enrichment on several levels. It LOOKS like just poking copper pipe in proximity of the plants “worked” very well by itself. If that is the case, why go to the time and expense of stripping a lot of copper wire ?

  8. Joe says:

    Ever heard of soil cover? its the latest thing.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I just looked it up! I feel like the mulch that we use to cover our garden gives a very similar effect, but I would definitely use a soil cover in our potted plants.

    Could you post an update as to how you tasted with this? Which worked better, the copper pipes or the wiring?
