Photo below - First, you'll notice that the red swc with honeydew melons in it has been moved to the next trellis over. This was done to hopefully expose the container to more exposure to direct sunlight, because the plants are kinda leggy.
Photo below - the 12 cucumber plants growing in the 34 gallon swc are doing really good, and have already outgrown the really tall trellis I made for them. I can't wait to see what the roots look like at the end of the growing season, because I bet it's pretty congested in there! The corn next to them are doing good too, and a few ears should be harvested in 2 weeks. I bet it's gonna be some good stuff, and we'll most likely roast them on the grill. Yum!
Photo below - here's some of the plants growing in 4 gallon swp's. The one on the left is planted with 2 cucumbers, and so far are doing exceptionally well. To the right of it is a tomato plant of some kind - of which I can't remember the variety right now. Oops! To the right of it are 2 black cherry tomato plants, which aren't shown in the photo.
Photo below - here's a "bush" variety of sugar baby watermelon growing in a 4 gallon swp. The reason they call it "bush", is because the vine is only supposed to get around 4 feet long. It'll be trained up the trellis later as usual, and it will be the first attempt for me at growing any type of watermelon in such a small swp. It's gonna be interesting!
Photo below - Here's my only early girl tomato plant in the garden, and it's being grown in a 4 gallon swp, too. See that tomato on there? Well, after taking this picture, I looked at it closely and it had a severe case of BER. Booooo! Luckily though, i've only found about 3 tomatoes that have been affected so far. That's not bad for 31 plants....
Tomorrow, i'll post a video of my trellises, and how they are utilized in the garden for my good friend Toni. She had asked me some questions about them, and the best way to explain everything is by doing a video. I've got another one that'll be coming up a day or two later, that covers rooting suckers from tomato plants. Gosh, I just love rooting those things, and have been giving out free plants like crazy!
Take care, and happy gardening!
