Good morning, All. Cool and overcast today but they say the rain should be slight during the day. If so I should be able to get the last of my peppers in. I packaged up seven pint baggies of the Zavory peppers, four of the Marconi and a quart and half of the bell. I also cleaned the remains of the tomato stalks out of a couple of the beds. I found that the cardboard oatmeal containers worked just the way I hoped--like a degradable pot. I hoped to provide a protected space for the tomato plant roots while directing them deeper into the container. That worked perfectly. And I think the cardboard also helped by absorbing water and slowly releasing it. Certainly a technique to continue using.
