    You're way ahead of me. Planted later that I should have. 90? Dang! You're right! Whew! I am just not ready for that yet... This 70s stuff is just fine for me. Low 80s would be fine too.

    Early Girl planted 6 weeks ago when they were 6" tall. Container is 30 gallon and blue bucket is 5 gal for size comparison. Lots of small tomatoes and even more blooms. Shouldn't be too much longer barring disaster.

    I planted tomatoes - 4 Japanese Trifeles, 2 Cherokee Purples, 2 purple bee cherries, and another 2 purple striped tomatoes. All are heirloom varietals. Planted 3 Aji Lemon pepper plants, and 2 japanese eggplant. This is so far.

    I won't even mention my oregano which has been coming up for 3 yrs - it is HUGE right now.

    I can picture you guarding your place with a shot gun resting on one shoulder and holding a well trained Doberman on the other hand.

    Nope Sep 2016 AZ passed a law no guns on the grounds of a grow facility which pissed me off because in a huge 2nd supporter and when you go from carrying every day to not sucks . We a re trying to change the law and are inching forward. The so called good thing is ,I am literally 150ft away from my local Police department they have given me full backing in the business and the Chief is a supporter of MMJ.

    I think that statement depends on where you live, soil type and growing area available. But it definately isn't the only way to go. I am glad it works well for you, but there are several ways to have a successful, low maintenance garden.

    Yes soil ls the main difference in the quality of there crop . Building up the soil is a lot of work and then you move ! ,that is one of the many advantages of hydroponics
