Nice Charlie! Where did you get those boxes?

Very beautiful Cole Robbie. Your plants look great and for that price I'd be your first customer in line

Cole what omsocote are you using and how much per gal pot?
I am using omsocote plus in my containers with good growth just a little high on N. I get leaf curl down.

Thanks again.

I've used the vegetable one before. This time I have the Plus, because it was on sale. It is a little high in N, but I starve my plants until they get the Osmocote. Then they turn from pale green to deep green in just a few days.

90% chance of rain and a high of 51 tomorrow. I'll probably make an appearance, but I don't expect to sell anything.

I actually ended up doing ok, despite it being cold, wet weather. Here's a pic that the market page posted on facebook. I was trying to stay out of the rain, but I kept having to get out of the truck to sell plants.

Customers have no idea they're getting a plant that's blowing away the competition.

This is how I visualize your plants' performance.

We had a few episodes of rain at our market too. I had a canopy up but was worried about all my jam jars/labels and stood in front of the display to keep rain from blowing in. I forgot my side panel. We should have fabulous weather tomorrow.
