Magnificent! Do they have a scent, Saliha?

I just finished planting my container garden yesterday. What a feeling of accomplishment!

My DIL says it's burdockk.
Isn't that the same thing?

burdock is often called wild rhubarb - but it is not the same plant nor ancestor / genus of the stuff we cultivate as rhubarb. parts of burdock are edible / used in herbal medicines - but note that some people react to burdock compounds....



had to go dig out the latin names....
"Common burdock belongs to the Composite or Aster Family (Compositae).
Other names for Common burdock are Burs, Wild burdock, petite bardane, Clotbur, Lesser burdock, rhubarbe sauvage and toques.

The edible rhubarb plant, however, belongs to a group of plants of the genus Rheum in the plant family Polygonaceae."

Thanks Professor lol
Either way, the patch under the kids swings and slide is coming out. The other looks ornamental as long as it doesn't take over the stone path.

I have some of those spiral stakes, too, Chowder, but I pretty much buy the bush varieties of tomatoes for my containers and the stakes are not as effective for me as the wire cages.

What varieties of tomatoes do you grow?

Default Re: My Garden

what's not in the pix - the spirals I tie together at the top with a cable tie to make a tripod. they don't work well as a stand-alone stake. these are steel spirals, flash galvanized, I bought in 1986 - my daughter has her dibs on them. 30 years and counting,,,, not too bad.

for containers probably not needed

I usually do an heirloom type beefsteak plus 1 or 2 hybrids. Better Boy/Girl, SuperSonics, etc. depends on what the local farm store brings in.

do you have the heavy duty cages? I use those for peppers.
here's the tripod deal, the yellow is the heavy duty tomato cage with a green pepper...

Brandywine! Man, I spent all morning trying to think of that tomato variety that has been touted as the "best-tasting tomato ever grown"!

I tried it once, but even a 5-gallon container is too small for it, and it only bore a few fruits. Good, but not worth it.

No, Chowder, I only have the cheap metal cages. I grow some tomatoes against a chain-link fence, so I can tie the cage to the fence if the plant is too heavy. I grow others in a circle of chicken wire on my patio, so again, I can tie the cages to each other if I need to brace them.

Brandywine requires deep cool roots - "normal" temps are tough with containers, when you get a picky plant . . . when I had the greenhouse I'd start them from seed and let them get real leggy - then bury 12-18" of stem about 12" deep horizontally. that made tomatoes by the wheelbarrow full.


I've got lots of gardening info/tidbits if you need anything.

I do need some info, C-Man.

I cannot, for the life of me, grow pickling cucumbers in my pots. The few fruit I get are little yellow golf balls.

I tried again as late as last year. Same thing.

What the heck?

cucumbers have a large but shallow root system - like 2 ft in diameter. the pots may simply be too small.


they have male and female flowers - the small round ball sounds like poor pollination. how many plants do you grow?


the yellowing could be the pollination issue, over watering, virus or age....

We have pumpkin blossoms going crazy, and wild morning glory.
I'll go out and take some pics when the weather improves.

Last year, I tried 3 plants in maybe a 4 gallon pot. Got 1 yellow golf ball.

I'm thinking that they just are not meant for smaller containers.

Thanks, Chowder!
