Container garden [update]

Went to Loews and purchased one tomato plant that bears yellow regular size fruit and one sweet cherry tomato plant plus one container of yellow straight neck squash plus one container of parsley plants. Made up one bucket containing five gallons and one bucket that contains 4 1/4 gallons. planted my maters in those and when I was done transplanting the tomatoes I noticed the sweet cherry plants main stem was bent over and half broke. SOaB. Now I will need to go tomorrow and buy a replacement sweet cherry plant. Plus I am going to purchase a container of straight eight cukes. Not satisfied with the cuke box I put seeds in. Get R Done.

Took the container of straight neck squash out back to the ground boxes and split the container in half making two hills of straight neck squash.
The melon box seeds did not show. I had purchased a six pack of tomato big boy plants and only used two plants in my deck containers. So rather than throw the extra away I transplanted three of the tomato plants in the melon ground box and tossed the remaining plants over my shoulder into the drainage ditch that is near the ground boxes. If those maters produce anything will be a plus. Only have a strip of lawn back there about eight feet wide which we keep mowed to keep wild critters from living in the tall grass if we did not mow it. Seen a turtle in the drainage ditch one time. Did not check to see if it was a snapper or not.

Used up all my potting mix and all the vermiculite. Have enough containers now. That sh!t costs money, I have spent enough back there. I have all my receipts from when I started last year and will tally them up.

I do not smoke anymore [quit ten years ago] or drink alcohol [quit that 20 years ago]. So no big loss of money for a hobby back there.

But I sure do like my Stokers long cut tobacco. I use more than a pinch i will tell you. Reminds me when I quit smoking I was trying different types of chew tobacco and that canned stuff. Leaf tobacco was not that bad as I chewed it before but that snuff type tobacco is a different story. I put some of that snuff type tobacco between my cheek and gum and I will tell you that stuff knocked me on my ass. Things started spinning around. got dizzy and sick to my stomach.Puke  Took me a few days to get used to that stuff. Take a gob of that now between my cheek and gum is like candy to a kid.Big Grin
