Thank you GrowingCoastal. Yes, it does feel good fixing things yourself. The computer is running so fast now - it must have been infected for at least a few months.

Back to container gardening: The next two days, my wife is on vacation and I'm going to do whatever she wants to do. The only thing garden-wise I have left growing is okra 5 plants - 5 buckets. Saturday, when she goes back to work, I'm going to dump the 15 buckets of mix that had tomato and squash plants into a large plastic tub and mix it all together. Then put that plastic sheeting I bought over the tub to attempt to keep out RKN and FW3. It's also to add products to change the PH level if need be.
Salt, AlittleSalt, Robert

Congrats on the computer fix! Here are two more photos of Astia F1 -- they are delicious. Picked three more today; will probably have five more in a day or two... Then I'll start leaving them on my neighbors' porches.

I will grow this variety for as long as seeds are available. The leaves are beautifully marbled with silver (appears white in the photo), and it must be parthenocarpic -- no bees required.
