Photo below - Since alot of pollen and small leaves are being blown from the trees, I laid a sheet over the makeup bucket to keep the trash out. I'll check tomorrow, to see if it can breathe enough to keep the siphon from failing.
Since it hasn't rained in a few days, the moisture meter was used to check the level of moisture in the Pro-Mix. At the high end of the "moist" range, that's exactly where I want it to stay. It'll be checked once a week throughout the summer. Maybe my crazy restriction method will actually work.
Photo below - Here's the Cherokee Purple tomato plants in their Earthtainer. Although they look kinda rough, I'm happy with them at this point. They are looking better everyday. Whew....
Seeing everyone else's beautiful plants makes me feel like the worst propagator on the web, but i'll do better next year. That......I promise. I don't accept failure very well, and really beat myself up when I do fail. Oh well, maybe the 80 lb. melons trellised will make everyone forget all about my over-watering of the tomato seedlings....Hee Hee. BTW, I started the seed for those today! Get ready!!!!!
Take care, and happy gardening!
