Hey. Nice set up looks like you will be having alot of fresh produce. Tell more about "Dwarf project tomatoes".
Is that a Cherry type? I am very interested in growing dwarf verities of all plants in my garden.

How do tomatoes do for you in the 5-gallon buckets? Do you grow patio-type tomatoes in them or full-sized determinates and indeterminates?

Fantastic! Such a smart guy and taking advantage of any sunny space you have, even if it is on cement. Bravo!

Can I ask a couple of question?

I am thinking of growing tomatos and others in tote containers and or pots on my flat roof since it gets lots of sun up there and I figuire it is space a could make use of.

What and why is the plastic on top of your buckets and totes for and made of?
Why are some buckets wrapped in black plastic?
How can I make it that I water thorugh a pipe too?
Is it easier than just watering overhead every other day or so?
Do you use lime?

Any ideas and or help greatly appreciated before I head out to start.

I just started a strawberry collection in a stand up pot that allows me to grow them on the sides. Yahoo:-)

Thank you.
