November 23, 2009 Hi everyone. Not much going on, but wanted to show you what is happening or not really happening with the garden. Most everything is pulled up and things are coming to a close. I just wanted folks to see what the garden looked like in the late fall. I’m starting to plan for next year, but not 100% sure what I will be doing. Maybe some more boxes and a few hanging plants. We shall see. I will probably have 1 more video in December for this series. Then soon 2010 will be here and I will absolutely be doing another series!! So thank you to all that have joined so far. I want you all to know I will not be stopping. Next year will probably be even larger :) . I’ll have another update in December. Thanks.

I bought four ever bearing strawberry plants this year and planted them in the pots suggested. They are doing pretty well, a couple of them have already produced a couple strawberries even though i have had them for only a month or two. They started growing long stems, super long, and a couple of them have decided to plant them selves in each others planters. My question is, should i remove those from the other planters? This is my first year trying to grow these things.

So I pulled my strawberries as they misbehaved and didn’t produce as much as I wanted. I’m into growing things that will give me more food than what they were doing.

I’m apparently going to be staying in my apartment for another year and I want to have a "Garden" at my own home this year.

My neighbor is a jacka*s and so I can’t actually dig and have a garden in the ground.

Pots are really expensive and I don’t want to use 5 gallon buckets because they look bad so I was thinking about getting large diameter PVC/CPVC Pipes cut at different heights then blocking the bottom with some kind of plastic netting so that the soil doesn’t run out the bottom with the rain, and then planting pepper plants, herbs, etc. in them.

I think that the white of the pipes will look like Modern Art along the back fence.

The base would allow for proper drainage for the soil, would keep the heat in from the sun, but I’m wondering how much room would, say, a cherry tomato plant need?

I was thinking that I could do the tall pipes for the big plants and then a 2nd row of much smaller diameter pipes in front of those for small plants like herbs and strawberries.

What do you think?
