Thats just what Im doing, cleaning, pulling up the plants, toping them off, and feeding. It has been so hot and miserable, but Im halfway thru, and it looks like its going to be much cooler for the second half. Its either now or never for spring blooms. I do need some more sand, to mix with the fines, lord my back hurts.
I just get so sick of the having to pull the darn things up every year, so sick.
Im going to try something new, Im going to take a tomato cage and whop it off pot heigth. Sit it in the pot, and plant. Well you have to get it full of dirt and stuff, but Im hoping the point will be, the darn plant wont be able to pull down past the top of the tomato cage.
Fred, your 'everything' looks excellent. I only dream.......
