With enough rain that is going to be quite a jungle in there eventually. So how do you maneuver in there? We like tomatoes and three or four good plants is enough for my wife and me - what do you do with them all, sauce, freeze, can, or just gorge on fresh?wink.gif

 

Liked your potato tubs and am trying that with one. If it works I'll do three next year; and save the straw from the oramental grasses for it.

 

Also like your reports.

Tomatoes are 26-28" apart in one direction and 30" apart in the other. Peppers are 20" apart in one direction and 15" apart in the other.

 

It gets a bit tight, but with staking and tying it is really not that much of a problem. (One of the reasons I don't like cages.)

 

Other thing I forgot to mention is that lettuce seedlings will get interplanted between the tomatoes within the next few days............

cwm27.gif I plan on it, but hopefully I can get a memory card for the cheapo camera before I go, as I am not sure it can handle 2 weeks worth of photos without it....redface.gif
