The main interest I have in the gardening topic here is to find areas that overlap, so I don’t have to buy separate supplies for my regular garden and my “good” garden. For instance, caterpillars attack pot AND tomatoes, so diamataceous earth is good for both.
Today, I removed cages from my outdoor pot plants, and splashed them with a mixture of beaten egg, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, and water. That might not affect the taste of tomatoes, but will it affect the taste of my buds when smoking? Maybe a fellow pot/tomato gardener could address the pest/deer control problem better.
Anyway, I don’t put much out, just a couple of tomato plants, a little patch of onions, and a couple of other odd seeds here and there.
My 3 tomato plants, one got decimated by caterpillars, another got hit, but is still producing (the tiny tomatoes):
My tiny little onion patch:
A lone green bean:
A couple of older onion bulbs, I was surprised they grew:
Lunch!! (The sweet corn is from my niece’s garden.)
And a lonely late bloomer on the rose bush I planted 36 years ago!
