    Congratulations on being farmer of the day. Looks like your first crop of tomatoes turned out pretty nice. Did you get a good crop?
    Good luck with your larger farm next season.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    I too have containers on the front patio. They are begonias and Impatiens. Of course they are done for this year but spring awaits.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    I've heard that vermi composts do smell though... you haven't found this to be the case. This is the compost with worms right?

    Save money and make your own vermicompost in a closet in your apartment. No smell, no mess, and your containers will love you for it.

    I always like gardening,I did growing up but I don't have the space in my apartment. I try some containers this year and I have tomatoes, basil, rosemary, mint, cucumbers, peppers and thyme, all organic. I'm getting ready for next year with bigger containers and looking to buy compost.
