Ups and Downs of Gardening

What I like to see!:

Strawberries

They're pretty tiny! No bigger then my thumbnail but man they are sweeeeeeeeeet like candy AND bug-free!

Strawberries

My other breed of strawberries are also doing well, much larger in size, but are taking their sweet ass time to ripen!


What I DON'T like to see:

Fail Pot

Failpot continuing to fail. This is AFTER I widened the drainage holes on the bottom too...

Fail Pot

I know the entire town is flooding, but do you really have to flood in the pot too?! All the OTHER pots are draining nicely even with the heavy rain.. it can't be the soil because I used the same for all the pots.
I'm afraid there's just no hope for the last of my cherry tomatos, I might see about experimenting with some green tomato chutney this coming week.

Is there any chance of...well, tipping the water out and praying? Though they do look pretty drowned.

Yeah, I've tipped it out and have since moved the tomatos into the garage where they won't get any more rain; this is the second major flooding of the pot like this though and I have a feeling that if the roots hadn't given up the ghost the first time around this second submersion is just going to do them in.. at least it was just this one wonky pot that determined not to shed water and not all of them!

try drilling a thumb-sized hole in the side just above where the dirt should be?

That is a great idea! I think I will give it a shot!

After draining, try using some hydrogen peroxide to airate the roots and avoid root rot?
