    Anybody grow (patio tomatoes)? My wife brought one home and a sweet cherry plant and we planted them in some pots on the deck along with some kinda string beans and a couple of mild,yellow/hot,red chili pepper plants around the deck.

    The patio tomatoes are about the size of a hardball and this plant is loaded with them and they grow in bunch's like the cherry tomato. Check-em out. they are growing through the spindles and are tied up and growing over the rails..Yeah Boy Ain't nothing like Home Grown Tomatoes.:smile2:

    The beans are growing up the strings and spindles and I'm weaveing them back down into the vines as they grow over the rails. the peppers are on the side.. Next yr I'm going to have a little better thing going with several garden plants in each pot.. :wink:

    I just thought I would share this with you guys..

    Looks good. We're canning fresh maters and peppers already. Nothing like home grown.

    Thanks for all the comments ladies and gentlemen:wink:

    I love home grown vegetables. A couple of years ago I watch some program about utilizing space in their/your garden.Thats where I got the idea to grow in containers, plus I have no space in my yards for a big garden, but I have used only one plant per container for the last 2 years..

    These people were using several plant types per roll, and letting them grow together,, So I figured I'd do the same next year. something like this.

    Pot #1. By planting about 2-3 stalks of corn spaced out even in the center of the pot, then about 6 pole beans just outside of them and 1 squash dead center. The beans will grow right up the corn and the squash will cover and drape down over and shade the pot and vine out into the spindles.

    #2 A head of lettuce center with carrots/onions around the outside etc..

    #3 Even plant some potatoes in 3-4gal container. :big_smile:

    You can use your imagination and mix/match the plants that would use the same soil type and watering habits and your good to go.

    I plan on having a BUMPER CROP next year!:003::002:
