Since the spinach has died completely – it is dead and probably better in a raised bed garden – I decided to replace them with some smaller tomato plants.
These are of a variety that seem to be optimized (or advertised) as being good for container gardens.
The support systems I built last week for the tomatoes and cucumbers are doing very well.
My pepper plants, located in between my tomatoes in the planter boxes, are beginning to show. This one is an anaheim.
Now that the tomato plants have supports, I’ve stopped pinching the buds and tomatoes are starting to sprout. This one is Porter’s Dark Cherry.
