Sheesh, I posted this in the wrong forum.

Here is a pic of my season extenders in one place for a class I taught & thought I'd bore share:

Put the WOWs out today and the sun stuck around for awhile and warmed the water. Under them is one each of 'Stupice', 'Purple Calabash', 'Brandy Boy', and 'Bloody Butcher'. I will container one each of 'Razzle Dazzle' and 'Better Bush'. Sadly most of the fam are not big tomato eaters, so my plants are much reduced in favor of things folks will eat (and not having to look at Self-Watering Containers throughout the yard).

You can also see what happens when you grow garlic: for some reason you miss one or five and next year you get some freebies. That should be 'Siberian' over there, yummy and hardy.

Way to set the bar, Dan! Now your plants can reap the benefits of this moisture. If I get a break in the rain after work I'll get a few in, too, but it looks like this may have to wait till Saturday.
Thanks for sharing!


I like that - 'set the bar'. The BH calls it 'obsessed' or 'brain damage'. I'll see if I can get her to change her framing to yours Barb.
