My new garden

Well, I made these food-grade earthbox type planters and am trying some tomatoes and squash. They were pretty easy and are self-watering.

Here is a good link if you want to learn on how to assemble a self-watering container for your plants.

http://www.globalbuckets.org/

You can also use Google to find a wealth of information on "Self-Watering Container Garden" and "Two Bucket Sub-Irrigated Planter".

Happy gardening!

Container Gardens

Just came across this thread on container gardens. I love this idea. My husband and I did this for the first time this fall and it turned out pretty good.
We have lots to learn and we love growing organic. Our space is limited and our soil isnt very good. We already had lots of containers from our moves so it worked out great. We are looking forward to spring! My husband surprised me this week and ordered "the cadillac"(thats what I call it) of composters. I'm excited,I love gardening,so in the genes.
Oh yea, as you can see our tomatoes were quite tall & leggy. I am curious, is this normal or could it be that they aren't deeply rooted enough? They did produce pretty good but I had to keep tying them up.They got so heavy. I know you have to normally but it seemed they were going to break. Any thoughts for next season? Thanks..

That looks awesome. My dad has been using Earth Boxes for years for his tomatoes and offered them to us for this year...getting excited and need to start planning! My biggest goal is tomatoes, squash and zucchini...and lots and lots of herbs!

PS. Not that I am a professional at ALL, but can't you just let the tomatoes grow down and on the ground? You just have to watch them carefully so they don't get eaten
