I have started saving rinsed out egg shells to crumble around our tomato plants anybody else do this?
I think it is good if your soil lacks calcium but it would not help my tomatoes. This area the soil is high in calcium.

I'm always curious how a post from 2009 comes up and people reply to it.

You can turn each outlet on and off manual or by timer. When doing it manually you have a limit amount of time up to 240 minutes (4 hrs). There's a way around this if you need a hose on at all times while the others on timer

Planted all my veggie starts yesterday. Covered with fabric for overnight (48) and expecting a warm sunny day.
Herbs went in a grow bag, as did a leftover tomato plant. We'll see how those do. It looks like a good start.

Flower seedlings will go in a small garden in front of the house. Zinnia, crazy daisy, shasta daisy.....and some marigolds (I planted some of those with the veggies too).
That was a lot of work getting this going!!

I read in a different forum that advertising garbage was posted, deleted, but it bumped the thread.

This is my first time to grow broccoli. I have 6 plants and this one is the furthest along. How long should I wait to pick? I don’t want to be too anxious.
Picture to follow.

You can wait a few more days I guess. You don't have to cut the whole plant down btw, broccoli will often produce secondary heads depending on the weather.
