Comments On - Datterini and Trombetti

Just finished building my overhead trellis and putting in the garden boxes at the base. I've transplanted some melon seedlings this for this fall. Can't wait to see how it works. Thanks for the idea.

Love the squash variety. I'm looking for this one here in the states. I've got just the perfect place and trellis system for the hanging squash. Can't wait.

Rick, I haven't had any success with squash. It seems that the vine bores love to burrow up the center vine just as the fruit start to set and kills the plant. I planted the zucchini in containers on the patio this year hoping that wouldn't happen but some weird thing happened again and half of the plants died again right when the zucchinis were starting to set on the vines. It appears that I'm just not meant to grow squash. The cucumbers, tomatoes, and potatoes look great. The green peppers are struggling this year for some reason but I'm hoping they will finally decided to produce many green peppers for the neighbors and me.

It sounds like the place you live is a great place to live. The slow pace would be wonderful. Cliff gardens sound like a great way to grow vegetables. I might have to think about how to accomplish that on the midwestern flatland.

Have a great trombetti day.
