What a beautiful harvest basket, dawgluver!

Thank you! I grow all my vegetables in containers as we're surrounded by timber, and sun is at a premium. It seems to work!

Containers! Now, I'm suitably impressed.

Me too, I was just going to post my amazement at dawgluver's successful container gardening!

I too have to chase the sun as there are so many trees here, but am now inclined to think about branching out to something other than tomatoes, onions, and herbs next year.

If the critters in question are birds, in my experience they only strike when the tomatoes turn color. When I've had a problem, I went to a fabric store and bought green nylon net. It camouflaged the ripening tomatoes but let enough sun through.

I am picking tons of tomatoes and making bunches of pasta sauce which we eat all winter. We freeze ours. Still a bit timid to try canning. Most of the batches we like sweet and mix and match our varieties but a few batches we put in a good dose of our home grown hot pepper.
