my favorite grape was the sugary... could not stop eating them... I grow regular cuccs in containers every year... my bush type did not do well for me... but I think that is because my lack of full sun... I just have to think of better support for these next year... a few of my tomatoes got crazy big
What a great photo...containers as far as the eye can see! What do you think of those hanging upside-down planters? Is that where you grew your grape tom's? I want to try those next year. I think I'll put flowers in my terra cotta one.
well I can't make a good call on the upside down planters... they were growing just fine... until I realized I hung them too close to my bird feeders... the birds & squirrels used them for perches and climbing rope... so after that they didn't do well at all... one had the ramapo and the other with a grape... the ramapo put out only a few that the chipmunks took care of... and the grape was too beat up to produce anything
I am going to give them another try next year though ... but put them in a better spot
the bulk of my tomato and cucumber plants were in the homemade self watering planters... I love them... totally worth the $10.00 to make and fill with promix... the plants were bigger and healthier... and way more production ... even though the beefsteaks couldn't keep up with the chipmunk damage... but the grapes and cherries had no problem keeping up with them... think I am going to stick to only those next year
if you could see the pile of rocks behind those two tubs in the photo... you would understand why I use so many containers
Oooh, I'm sure they thought it was all for them. That's another 'live and learn' lol. Rocks or no rocks, don't you love the planters? It's so much easier than growing in the ground for me. and you saved a ton of money by making the planters yourself.
