Hey, EG, I just bought cat litter in a new plastic container (a pox on packagers) and realized that I'm going to have to save them and make SWCs out of them!And I just got my video camera battery charged -- I'll video right back at you. Denise and I have been practicing our accents!
Interesting. I would think since it's happening to all your plants it must have been weather related at one particular time that stressed all your plants and they're showing new healthy growth. Is that possible?Sorry about your BER, I hate to see your tomatoes not doing well. Mine still have tons of blooms but little in the way of tomatoes. Can't wait though, my first ones are starting to ripen, hehe.
Ok, keep in mind I'm an idiot when it comes to SWC and I have no idea how diseases etc are transferred from plant to plant, but could it be that your siphon system is stransferring something icky (that's a technical term) to the other plants in the system?Again, I most likely made all that up.
One thing I would recommend for next year maybe is having plants in 10+ litter buckets that are moveable. I had BER hit three plants because of their position during the rain fest. I moved them over a few feet to where they'd get max sun during the good hours and the BER pretty much disappeared.It made me thankful I talked to the ice cream store and asked if they had any spare buckets.
Stefaneener - oh goodie! I can't wait to hear y'alls attempt at southern dialect. It should be funny...Yeah, I love using cat litter buckets as swc's.....Sinfonian - it's happened to all of my plants because I applied too much magnesium to all of them. The BER is from the abundant rainfall for several weeks.Ribbit - No, it's not a contamination issue from the siphon system, paste tomatoes suffer from BER alot worse than slicing varieties.waters_deep - I can't move the earthtainers, because they weigh over 100 lbs. when full of water.
