They’re growing, although not very fast.
Some mid-season observations:
- I mixed the dirt wrong. Something that leaks out when I water them is killing the plants. The dead sections are where water drips down from the holes in the buckets. It’s also hurting the stems of the plants.
- It’s harder to keep these guys watered. We’ve had pretty decent rainfalls, but I still have to get out more than I’d like. They’re dependent on me.
- Tomatoes want to grow upwards. I don’t know what is happening with the roots inside the buckets. I imagine it’s not normal.
- Even easy tomatoes aren’t as easy as they make it look on TV.
