That would be correct.

That's a good method. I think whatever works well, is all fine and good. Even though the ET method is a lot of work, I won't be too harsh. For people with a lack of room - especially balcony growers - it's a very good option. I just like to offer variety for those who don't mind going a little "lower tech".

One can do all sorts of methods. Even using a FLorida weave across an entire row of boxes. Limitless staking and caging possibilities.
