My potatoes grew a lot faster than I had expected. I have already decided they get their own 4X4 box next season. Then I can just stack a whole box on top of another. I hadn't really thought it through so had to put together a box to build up the soil rather quickly. I am optimistic that it will work. This has brought the enthusiasm back to gardening.

Wow, they are doing well, aren't they?!? You have a really nice set-up going in your yard.
I love this whole SFG thing......living in town, I didn't think I could have a garden. Silly me.

Your gardens look very nice! And your potatoes are really growing good! We started off last year with just two rows of potatoes in our SFG, and we made a SFG just for the potatoes this year. Just two rows produced a lot of potatoes last year, so I can't wait to see how many we get this year, the best part is, no digging!

Potatoes Gone Wild Empty Your tomato cages

Post  ander217 5/5/2010, 7:08 pm

Nice looking boxes.

I see you have cages for your tomatoes. I'm wondering how you have those set up. Do you have anything on the bottoms of your boxes? I'm thinking ahead to next year when I need to rotate my tomatoes and may not have room to put all of them near the trellises. We have weed barrier stapled to our boxes and if I use cages would I just punch them through the barrier? That would seem to defeat the purpose of the barrier because I know our weeds and grass would find the tiniest hole to grow through.

I'm just wondering how you managed to use cages in your boxes.

Thanks for any advice.
