  • Looks like you are growing a bit of everything…. how are you planning on supporting your tomato plants? Cages or stakes and why? This year I am trying both…mostly because I ran out of cages and had an extra supply of wood.

  • Tomatoes are being supported with strings.

    About the weather – Wednesday was sunny all day and I just stayed out in the sun the whole time.

    Can you believe this gloominess?!!!

  • I've got to get some tips on two of the crops labeled in the bottom right picture- Skippy's Umbrella Pole and Skippy's Water Dish. 😉

    Seriously, everything's looking good!

  • I thought it was recommend to rotate potatoes (or the soil they're in) yearly to avoid disease? You don't seem to have this problem with your volunteers? I grow potatoes in trash cans and big containers and usually dump that soil into my raised beds and put new virgin soil in the cans in the Spring.

  • Chris,

    Thanks for the reminder to rotate!

    This is a good reason not to let the volunteers grow. I did rotate the bed I planted them in, but since I also reorganized my beds, many came up in paths. I let volunteers in the paths grow.

    Since its only the second year I'm growing potatoes, probably OK. But a real good point for pulling them out next year.
