Kathy,
Is there a way to make sure we don't have salt build up if were not sure.  I was using non-organic fertilizer but have switched to organic.  Can the potting mix be flushed out some way or do I need to start completely over?  This will be my 3rd year and I have always dug out the fertilizer strip and surrounding area. 
Thanking you in advance for all and everyone's help.

Barbara

Any salts present will rise and collect at the top of the mix, not throughout unless one has turned it into the mix instead of removing first.

What is the item you use to remove your soil? A ball bogger?

I have relatives in Long Beach, and they have slightly more southern accents than the Doc. Transplant?

Weve been having the conversation about supporting peppers lately, so I wanted to show everyone how I use the Ultimato. This works well for peppers as well as eggplants

Thanks for the video. That was easier than I thought.

What is the spacing of the ultomato for 6 plants? The two in the middle would be under a span.

Gardendoc,

Last year I had problems with the wind knocking the peppers down.  What would you suggest about the wind.  Your videos are great.  Thanking you in advance.

Spacing three longways on each side and just work the support bars through.

We were a little windy when hurricane Issac brushed us last September, peppers and eggplants did fine in the Ultimatos.

Gardendoc would you think this ultomato would support growing zucchini plants?
Love your post, your videos have been very helpful.

Here's what I used for my Zucchini.  There's a piece of rebar in the ground that the pvc fits over so it wont blow over.  I had trellis string but it was too small for the leaves so I just left the pvc pipe and it worked great.

Other than the two lower crossbars, I don't see that framework providing much "support" at all.  or am I not seeing the picture right.

When I saw that the trellis string was too small I took it out. The four sides of the pvc pipe with the learge leaves seemed to hold up the plant off of the ground which was my intention. Where the plant is gets a lot of wind from the front. For the pepper plants I think the ultimato looks better.
