Default Trimming and rearranging

Seems like I just did this 2 weeks ago but once again I trimmed back my indeterminate tomatoes (2 Black Sea Man, Big Boy & Jet Star) their growing so fast they all have green tomatoes and plenty of new blossoms. They were also getting to close, no air flow so I rearranged to give them more room I moved 2 pepper plants to one of my growing tables. My cuke is climbing nicely and blooming,his is the 1st time I've tried beets in a grow bag they seem to be doing just great. My pole beans are really climbing and my bush beans (Contender) are starting to develop beans here's a few pics.

Nice! The ability to rearrange is one of the beauties of container growing.

When I was a growing up we had a 2ac. garden but living in the city either I use the grow bags or I go without fresh veggies. I really like being able to still grow my own, and with my set up its very neat & compact.

Maybe it's just me --- but that murky standing water would drive me insane....

Could that potentially affect the ~taste~ of the final product

The algae been an issue in previous years and with the heat we've had this year there's not much that can be done to stop or prevent it, I haven't noticed any taste issues.

Jetstar -

I know it's the internet and all, so hopefully you did not read it the wrong way....
Any possibility to set them on drip ? The systems are pretty inexpensive these days.

Mobiledynamics, no worries about your concerns everyone does things differently. As far as a drip system I really like being in and around the patio where my grow bags are, I guess I could set up a drip system but the worry if something breaks I like my daily watering regiment I'm able to spot any issues and correct them, and if need be I'm able to remove and isolate the plant
