Container garden [update]


Last Edited: April 3, 2018, 9:20 am

Been working on purchasing flower and vegetable plants and transplanting them. The seeds in the ground boxes are not sprouting except for two soyas that sprouted in one ground box. Those ground boxes dry out quick too. Purchased zucchini and straight neck squash plants and transplanted the straight necks in two ground boxes by separating the plants in the one container. They had about six plants in one container. I thought six was a bit much for one hill [ground box]. Planted the zucchini in a five gallon bucket as I ran out of deck containers. I also made up two five gallon buckets with an eggplant in each one. Put the three five gallon buckets on the deck sitting on a pallet I modified for the bucket sizes.

Going out today and purchasing one more zucchini and put that in a ground box. Also going to pick up some herb plants. I already purchased a rosemary plant and put that in one of my vacant 2 1/2 gallon pails.

See what else they have for the extra ground boxes that are not sprouting.

Should be done with the transplanting this week. Except maybe over the summer I may need a flower replacement now and then. The violas I planted last year have/are reaching the end of their cycle and dying off. I am not going to play nurse maid to plants. Just replace with new plants.
