Joy, your veggies are outstanding, especially your tomatoes! They look very healthy and happy. BTW, what're your daytime and nighttime temps running right now?

Joy, as I remember it, you are the daffy old lady that grows daffodils. And I am the nutty old guy who never grew them before. Well BINGO! I got daffodills! all two of them. One got two blooms and the other came free of charge with its own under growth of purslane. Looks like they are doing good in the one gallon pots. How long do they bloom?

I have 3 of those Bloommaster pots- last summer, I planted eggplant, but didn't use the outer holes, couldn't figure out what to put in them. Looks like cucumbers might be the answer, what about beans or snow peas, if the pots were elevated? I didn't hang them, thought they would be too heavy.

Thanks everyone, once I took the bloommaster apart and put in Jungle Growth for hanging baskets, some perlite and fertilizer it wasn't all that heavy and the plants seemed to thrive better. I think beans would do wonderful in it. It's been right around 60 at night and around 70-80 during the day. Daffodils don't last all that long once they bloom Jay, they don't like to be crowded that I know. Everything needs staked up now. I bought some cheap stakes at Lowes and string to use when my baskets and cages run out. LOL Next time I will use the vine clips, I like that idea better and think it much more natural and less stressful for the plants. I even got 4 strawberries today instead of the usual one or two. LOL

The tomatoes in the grow bags are getting Bob's fertilizer every other day, I water with a watering can for now. Then just use the spray nozzle on the hose every other day and of course, just water in the EBs and homemade EBs as they have the fertilzer ring/strip and dolomite lime, I did add epsom salts to them also though. The size of the cabbages really surprised me though, so glad someone said to replant some in another container. The funny thing is the tomatoes seem to be growing straight up and not wanting to bend like they did last year, hopefully that will continue with the help of the cages and stakes.
