Hmmmm. Using a shelf – great idea! I decided to use hanging baskets for my loofah and dipper gourds this year- hung them from branches in my cherry trees.
Also I’m growing an heirloom Speckled Roman tomato – they seemed to thrive when they sprawed across the ground last year, so thought I’d try them from hanging baskets this year to save some of my ground space. Now I’m thinking I could build some shelves on the outside wall of the shed… hmmmm.

I remember that this did not work well for the cukes but I can’t remember which video shows the results. Maybe it was the hurricane that put these out of action. If you can, maybe do one of those Youtube related videos to point to the cuke results. I think it was a field trip video.

Also, I like to see ALL your videos but there are so many. Maybe add a year to them like “field trip June 2009”?

Happy New Year.

The upside down cucmbers did real well until the heat of summer. From that point on I had to plant them in the ground. I believe the heat from those black pots hurt the root system.

Each video is dated by YouTube but I will keep your suggestion in mind. I have the 2009 season on DVD. Check the web site……….. Donald

They are dated but you can’t see the date on the list More from: Webcajun.

Either way, thanks for making the videos.

how many seed you put in the pot.does the root of the plants will fight..

webcajun @ 10:33 am #

You can try a couple of plants but I really think thinning to one per pot would be best……… Donald

Not fond of hybrid seeds. I like them just the way God made them. Hybrids do not absorb nearly as much nutrients as Heirloom seeds.

Heirloom / OP is the way to go if you’re going to save your own seed………. Donald
