    Side note...I got one of these for a few hundred bucks on amazon..great investment...but as soon as I put it in a few weeks ago the wife had to go to Armstrong gardens and spruce up the yard a bit...so although the food is lacking..the plants and landscape she designed is on point! The one with coffee is from this morning getting ready to work reading sdfish

    We had one similar to that one that we bought from the fair. It was in our sunroom. But the pump went out and started to leak. It lasted a very long time.
    Funny story, when our granddaughter was very young her and her brother wanted to go in. We started it up and it was bubbling like mad. I picked her up to put her in it and she started screaming and kicking. I guess she through that we were going to boil her like a lobster.
    The grandson got in it and turned it off, then we put her in it and let her turn it on. After that she was fine with it.

    If it's like our old one it pulls the heat from the motor to heat it. Pretty efficient. 104 yes on ours.

    Good advice here. There are also ornamental plants that can wreck a garden. Hibiscus is a real no-no near any of the cucurbits like squash, cucumbers, melons, gourds, etc.

    I’ll go you one better. Stuff a Ortega Chile with squid and ricotta before stuffing that in a squash blossom and dipping the whole thing in batter and frying it. So good it will make a fella hit his grandpa!

    My tomatoes are all over the map. In pots the San Marzano is about to fall over from its fruit weight, Celebrity has ripe fruit but is meh quantity wise, Rutgers is similar but a super sweet fruit. The Rutgers in the raised bed is a monster and knocking over the cage.

    Chile peppers are slow,

    It’s not a plant, but it should be buried.

    Really haven't grown much of anything in a couple of years. What I used to grow the most of was illegal at the time. I'd bring a gunny sack of anchovies home from the boat. Best fertilizer I've ever used.

    Transistor radio used to keep the critters away but I've found a. 22 pellet gun to be most effective and more fun
