That was an awesome vid worth. Inspiring and it made me happy to see someone other than my brethren picking the tomatoes.

RS: 2016 year of the dwarf for me

My ode to dwarfs and compact plants, rooftop access railway will be busy in a few short weeks. Room for 10 more if I do the steps too.

The stair tomatoes look fantastic.
I bet the kids and folks that live around you have a lot of respect for you and is the reason they dont bother stuff.
As for the video and your brethren.

I can laugh because I have worked along side your brethren many times.
From swinging a sledge hammer and making stone blocks.
Mowing grass.
Driving tractors.
Picking pecans.
Sorting pecans.
Planting trees and grass.
You name it.
Not as the boss but as a worker for the same wage sitting down and sharing food.
My wife did too.

Are those the final homes for the dwarves Gerardo? They look to be about 2 gallon pots.
I've only grown one dwarf but am willing to try again this year. Was going to plant in no bigger than 3 gal containers, am I about right?

Peebee: the black ones are 2.5-3 or thereabouts. Lettering below says NC-3 GroPro.

I've given them 3-7 gal and fruit size has been pretty consistent, from now on they all get smaller living quarters.

Gerardo, when I was a kid we went to the beach at Angel's Camp. Was that Rosarito or Ensenada? I can't remember.

Very close to Ensenada. A rocky beach, yes?

OK, so Ensenada, not Rosarito. Thanks. I've always wondered where that was. Yes, and rocky. I remember the tide pools and my beautiful mother teaching me about starfish and anemone which were there.

It was winter, the early 90's, I spent a couple of nights at the Estero Beach Hotel & Resort in Ensenada. My most vivid memory was how beautifully landscaped and well maintained that place was. Early mornings the grounds would be bustling with caretakers.

We'd planned on staying a week but were freezing to death, 60's and drizzle had set in. We got in the rental car and drove over to San Felipe, 85 and sunny, with the Sea of Cortez warm as bathwater.

Default small pilot for irrigation scheme

I responded to RS's post, it somehow got lost in the server transition. Very happy to hear you have good memories on both sides of the peninsula.

Winter children doing well in their square pots.

Expired; saved from being thrown away, repurposed. Will spray paint everything black to minimize algae. No leaks thus far.

Test ones to see if the pooches leave them alone.

Pretty easy to dial-in 10 drops/min.

Okay there are 3745.41 mil per gallon and 20 drops per mil.
How many drops it that?

Digging those pictures. What kind are in the top photo in the terra cotta pot with the cage? It might be just the photo but the foliage looks a little different on those.

The medical infusion sets are standardized, I think these are 15 drops/ml. So 10 drops per min comes out to 960 mL for the entire day. Not bad eh?

Forgot to name them. That's Pink + Sunrise BB in the cage. E. Ssubakus Aliana up top, Dora, Gregori's Altai, and Sakh. Pud in the squares, and two Gribovsky in smaller clay.

Okay I now have to ask where on earth can you get those things?
What you did was think outside the box like I did with the whiskey bottle pour spout.
I want one to use on my drill press to drop oil.
