Ordered a dehydrator and would really like to put up a large quantity of tomatoes for the winter. I'm a retiree who never had time for all this and I've found it quite satisfying. I'm already thinking about next years garden.
I just used a little Miracle Grow twice and I keep the water filled. I'd like to be a retiree (I'm 65); but everytime I think I'm close, the economy tanks. Like I said, I'm new to this and I have no idea what I'm doing. I planted 8 pepper plants in one Earth Box and 3 tomatoes in another.
I'm thinking of what I want to do next year, too. I like the idea of containers off the ground. I have no problems with pests, bugs, disease, or anything else. But, I think I want some lots bigger containers.
