Everything you ever wanted to know about Tumbling Tom:
and Cherry Cascade:
The key is picking a variety suited to that container.
The "Tumbling Tom" is a good one and "Cherry Cascade" another. Personally I'd rather grow them the old fashioned way, but for limited space and/or novelty the hanging basket in full sun works.
Here's an example of just recently planted peas in this year's onion row and also the peas previously planted in carrot/radish/turnip row. You can see old discarded onions.
Cover crops until fall.
I also love to use beans...green and pintos for soil building...and of course eating:
Today I triple planted crowder peas in a harvested potato row as a cover crop for winter planting.
For lunch, I put on a bigg Texas sized pot of green beans and new potatoes and onions for lunch...going to be a great day!
I've been doing this successfully for many, many years. I use beans and all kinds of cow peas in spring and summer and use clovers, vetch, and small grains in fall and winter.
My garden soil is NEVER, EVER bare...if it isn't producing crops, it is being replenished by N2 providing cover crops...
I use it regularly in my veggie garden...onions, tomatoes, corn all thrive with fish emulsion.
Lawn? No, I have never understood the concept or need to encourage lawn grass to grow and have to mow more often. Never fertilize lawn around here. :)
Of course it depends on rain and whether the vines are established or not.
For established vines, weekly to a depth of about 12 inches. Less after fruit set.
For new vines, I like to hit them three times a week during summer...they just don't do well without water until they get that root...
Welcome Ken . I understand your heat and humidity and experience same here in east Texas.
I use cattle panels for various things but never a green house....interesting idea...but curious about using a green house in summer growing conditions? The pollination, over temps, and water would seem...
