    Hi Stephanie!
    Yes, without that particular screen the water tends to break down the soil into a sludgey mess. (Tends to smell a bit too.) And yes, while the uosy-daisy doesn’t have as many holes for the roots to penetrate through (as well as dry soil/water interface it’s worth a try. Let us all know how it turns out for you too. We can all learn from each other here.- Jonn

    Hey Jonn,
    I noticed at 4 minutes in on this video you place a screen of some kind in the passion pot above the reservoir before you added the container power. I have a similar (inferior) pot with reservoir and have not used a screen. Am I placing my plants in fungal trouble by not separating soil from the reservior and would an old ups-a-daisy take care of said problem?

    You are always an inspiration Michael! We are currently working behind the scenes to be able to send our Passion Baskets (as a complete blooming kit) to far, faraway places like Boston Mass. (Stay tuned!)

    Hi Kathy! You may remove the walls o’ water when the night temperatures begin to rise (solid 40’s)and the day temperatures are in the 70’s. It’s always a gamble to remove them earlier but you’re in solid, safe ground removing them after May 5th. Hope that helps!

    New try! Technical difficulties before. I was reminescing while watching your tomato 101 video. I think it shows the level of fun and great teaching that most of what you taught me years ago about growing my own tomatoes (shocking as that is to someone who never thought she was a gardener) is still with me and the video was a great refresher course. Maybe I should have made you a tomato cake (yes, there is such a thing) for your birthday. Rebel On (and keep on teaching!!!)

    Do you leave the 'Wall-of-Water' around the tomato the entire summer? If you remove it, how? I ended up slitting the 'Wall-of-Water' between two water cylinders and dumping out the water. I reused it the next year by clipping it back together with clothes pins.

    Hi Deborah! I secretly think we all have some valuable garden tidbit that we’ve learned over the seasons. Come to think of it, isn’t the term “Garden Party” originally from a group of gardeners just talking garden? (I’ve done no research here whatsoever.)

  8. Jonn Karsseboom Jonn Karsseboom

    I was just talking to one of our customers today. He had lived in Laramie Wyoming and I learned that they too have a very short growing season. (It can get hot but then very cold.) I suppose short season tomatoes are a bonus for anyone... short or long season. (Always enjoy hearing your thoughts.)

    Hi Margo! Milkweed for the butterflies? Yes we do carry it and usually have it in during Mother’s Day. You may download our app and it will also notify you when it arrives! (Might be easier too.)

    Wow. Lots of information. Great video. I’ve grown a couple of those tomatoes on the East Coast.

    I want to buy my granddaughter and my daughter milkweed for Mother's Day do you sell it?
