I wouldn't be concerned about the frogs. You would be shocked at the types and variety of critters that run around all of our gardens at night.

If they've been planted for several weeks I'd just let them go. If you're concerned about possible production issues, just snip one of them off. I would not try to separate

Strange question, but I’ve read that frogs can carry salmonella. So, if they live in the water reservoir, can that be passed into my growing vegetables?

Questions and Answers / Transplanting tomatoes?
« Last post by snorrie on June 26, 2021, 10:13:39 am »
Hi, I thought I was planting a rather “leggy” tomato seedling, but given a few weeks to grow, I can see it is obviously two plants. They are very close together in one corner of the earth box…do you think I can safely dig them up and separate them? Or can they both possibly flourish in the same spot? Thanks very much for any advice!

Over the Garden Fence / Re: Tomatoes not setting fruit

I am in central Ohio.  I had four or five groups of blooms die off, but now it is starting to set fruit.  It was pretty wet there for awhile.  Maybe that was it.  Thanks for the reply.

Questions and Answers / Re: AWS not level with hose connection...

Thank you for the reply, we'll check into a backflow preventer.

I have root & veg. separate now, that AWS doing fine. Now have a separate AWS for junior earthboxes. The company has said the standard AWS can be used for Jr. boxes, as long as we use the standard fill tube instead of Jr. size.  BUT they are still leaking, the device doesn't shut off when the little jr. is full. Any suggestions anyone? 

Arrrgggg!!

While I generally agree with the tall plants may yield less, Sungold is def the exception.
These things are tall and make pounds all the way to the top.

As long as you have a back flow device I don't see why it shouldn't work

Questions and Answers / AWS not level with hose connection...
« Last post by pressedflowerart on June 16, 2021, 02:45:42 pm »
If someone has posted on this previously, I apologize. I have two Root & Veg. boxes on deck, three EB Juniors on deck railing. The hose is down on ground. Last year we could not use one AWS for all boxes, by the time the Root & veg. boxes were filled enough, the Juniors would leak.  Sooo... this year I have two separate systems to try.  One for R & V, another for the Juniors on railing.
My Question -- does the AWS work ok with this disparity of height (Railing higher than hose on ground) would there be any issue?

thanks for any help!
