Hanging Gardens - 4/28

Here's a photo from 4/28/08 of the 'plug-n-gro' bag experiment. Our garden seldom gets full-sun exposure, so we'll see how these new hanging gardens fare. I'll try to provide updates throughout the season. Also new this year will be 2 plum trees, 4 blueberry bushes, and black/red raspberries.

The bags hold 12 plants each, with a wide variety of vegetables represented: tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, cantaloupe, and zucchini.

what is the advantage of hanging bags?

I'll be doing some gardening myself this in the coming months.

I've tried tomatoes in stand alone containers. It hasn't work too well for me thus far. I intend to plant quite a load of basil and other herbs. I intend to find a cure for HW's muteness.

For now, the cannabis in the basement keeps me more than busy.

The main advantage is for those who have limited space. They theoretically can allow large crops in a small footprint. Like I said, I'll continue to periodically give progress updates (like if all the plants fall out or die).

What are your transplanting plans? Getting bigger punching bags?

Chief said...

Yes, I will transition from the speed bags to the heavy bag for my upcoming rematch with Clubber Lang.
