Shwag soil, partial sunlight and left-over hydro nutes (which I burnt the **** out of the tomato with) sitting on my porch/stoop thing.

Two types of tomatoes growing into each other, brandywine and beefsteak.


4 corn plants in the same pot (I know, I know).


And some poblano, cayenne, blushing beauty and habanero peppers.



There's a bunch of other stuff too, the regulars (aloe, rubber plant, bromeliad).

Nope, that's a couple of habanero plants. I started those from seed, they took about 4 months to gain any size at all and then all that growth in about three weeks. No habs yet, the poblano, beauties and cayennes are producing though.

Looks good man, I love blueberries, we had huge patch on our land when I grew up in TN and we would eat those things until we were sick of them!

Hey man, here's a trick you might try. Where I live, the sun can destroy tomatos in a bad way. I put stakes in about 4 feet apart. Little 1x1 sticks will do. Then lightly stretch cheese cloth over them and staple em with a little piece of plastic between the staple and the cloth to prevent tearing. Make em tall enough so you can work on the plants without hitting it. That gets annoying.

In the hottest part of our summer, I use two layers to lessen the amount of sunlight on the plants. Earlier or later in the year, you can remove the sticks and roll it up. I've used this method for a lot of years. Works great!

The rain gets through and the full sun doesn't. Nice maters!

You stretch the cheese cloth over the plants like a roof that the sun can shine through. One layer is about a 30% decrease in direct sun.

No, I don't share any pics of my outside yards. Too easy for someone to recognize something. This is a pretty easy thing to do though.

Good luck.

Guess whatt I spent some of the afternoon diggin up some of my plants and put them in containers. The season pretty much over where im at since its gettin hotter and didnt rain worth a damn this year. I figgur I'll have to bring them in before too long anyway. lots of them were the ssame baby height i planted them. cheesecloth or no its be awhile before i ever plant out in the yard again. while they in pots i can move em around and control the sitchiation

one good thing tho i planted cucumbers (pickle sized) and they produced like a mofo, they didnt give a $h**, came up bigger than the regular sized cucumbers

anyone growin cucumbers too? they seem to grow well even under the worst conditions (mine)

Damn birds are getting smarter and smarter. My dad used to give us a nickle for every pigeon we showed him. He hated them. Said the cows wouldn't eat hay that was crapped on by a pigeon. I was a kid with a 22 and a mission. It's a wonder the roof didn't collapse from the bullet holes.
