    I do some container gardening but mostly square foot raised bed. I’m trying the “potato tower” this year.
    Odd that you have neighborhood kids that are into veggies, my wife and kids eat little to no fruits and vegetables.

    Fistfulladirt, I try my best to teach wonderment and amazement to the children of the neighborhood. To watch a child who has little fresh vegetables pick a green bean or suger snap pea or a fresh carrot
    and then rinse it and eat it for the first time amazes many of them and makes them wonder what this tastes like and what that tastes like. Then the adventure begins for the children and it can last a lifetime.

    Update on my planting technique, on June first (6/1/10) my first peppers appeared. jalapeno, lady bell and Hungarian wax . All the other pepper plants are well flowered.

    My Cherokee tomatoes are well flowered. Anybody in Pa. knows that we have had tons of rain and I believe that without using colanders in my planters/buckets much of my work would have been for naught.

    You in a desert area or have real hard water? I was told it was from mineral AKA hard water. My planter boxes get it and I scrape it off and throw it on the grass. Try adding in a little potting mix after you scrape it & break up the soil. Oh yeah, both the grass & boxes are doing great.

    Sounds like an excellent vegetable garden is on the way. Good luck. Tonight they are talking about a possible frost and it's June.

    I still remember picking and trying garden grown vegetables for the first time. Yes, the radishes were wild!

    All of my plants are in the ground... Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, potatoes, zucchini, melons, pumpkins... at least the staples. I hope to put out some sweet corn and sunflowers. Like all of the farmers around here, things are going in late. I was lucky in putting them in a month ago, but didn’t get finished and farming was higher priority.

    Kindest regards,
    Kantuck

    Thanks Kantuck, I only have a growing area of 30'x20' so most of my plants are in buckets(45).
    In the ground are Kentucky wonder pole beans, vineing cucumbers, bush cucumbers, green arrow peas, sun glo tomatoes, Box Car Willie tomatoes, Cherokee purple tomatoes, Black Krim tomatoes.
    Silver Queen corn, Butter and Cream corn and garlic. Everything else is on growing tables in buckets.

    Best wishes to you and tours.....Joe McDonough
