Thank you Marsha. Love to have you come over when I am back in town. You would find it interesting as I am into
growing tomatoes different ways with different inputs. I also like growing greens just as much as tomatoes, maybe more
.Asian greens, lettuces, etc.
For earthbox covers I use old bags from the potting mix. And just tie string around them. But you wouldn’t have all those bags as you reuse longer. I frequently put the plants in before the cover (as they are big) then I have to cut slits in the plastic and slide it up around the plants. I find what I do a PAIN in the neck so can’t really recommend it. I think I have tried everything over the years including Garbage can rubber bands, 1/4 inch elastic Knotted to fit. , clips that go around edge of earthbox. I liked those but they rusted too quickly. Maybe the real earthbox covers are worth the expense—if only they could be reused a couple times. Wonder if you could rinse them in bleach solution? In the past I just threw them away not thinking about it.
Have you seen the youtube video where they put plastic over the top and then tie a knot in each corner? That looks interesting.
Here are 3 of your African queens from the Master gardener sale. Thanks for growing all those plants. (is the pic upside down?)
