Nice maters', John!

Yeah, those cherry t's can get outta control quick. I take a butcher knife to mine and keep them in check.

This post makes me think that gardening is right around the corner. My garlic is already going mad from the mild winter, pruned the raspberries and grapes, just need to sit down with Bassman and see how many green chilies we're going to tackle this year.

I think he has a brother who used to hunt, but Igor never hunted or fished. In the Old West, he would have been the guy cheating at Poker at The Long Branch, but Matt Dillon would have to run him out of town.

Price isn't bad either. Last time I got some (2 years ago), it was still $9.99 per bag.

I never had any luck growing things in pots, buckets, or tubs. I think another big reason this works so good is because I cut the bottoms out of the tubs, and sunk them in the ground. That gives them drainage, and keeps the temp in the tubs just like ground temperature, instead of big changes in temp from being exposed to elements outside the tub.

Just my thoughts on that.

I've seen some great plants in pots, in situations like yours.
My guess is the amount of sun & the amount of water is more important for them than "in-the-ground" plants.

I typically use self-watering containers for my maters. They are similar to the earthbox, but DIY. it's not really much cheaper than an earthbox, but you get a bigger container. I use 18 gallon tubs with two plants per tub.

The past couple years have been bad years tomato-wise for us, but the year before that I got so sick of tomatoes that I didn't eat salsa for a few months after the growing season. Last year I was sick of sugar and snow peas! LOL!

Every year I'm sick of Zucchini!

That's what we used to do, but the little spikes every 5 inches would never hold these plants up. You gotta go with the half inch rebar, like in my pics.

LOL....yeah at that size you need some more anchor.....I do hill up soil around the bottom a bit to add some more strength and it makes a convenient watering circle........I did have a few blow over about 10 years ago,but they had already grown back down the outside of cage and of course 100 mph winds from a hurricane .......

Yep , home made here as well. Had great luck with the peppers last year in our 2 containers , so adding 3 more this year.

Ours looked like this last year.



Blurry pic , but 90# dog for scale.




Question though , for those that use this product ( the master gardener stuff ) Do you think it would wick the water up in a self watering style container ? Or , should we just use it as part of the mix we put in the tote bins ?
The local place has 2 cu. ft . bags 11.99 and 3 for 30 $ .
