Can I bookmark a topic if I’m on my phone?

Thank you for your help!

Who's 4" and 3.5" pots are you using?

Currently, I just use leftover ones from plants I've bought at stores, but I need more, and most online seem incredibly fragile.



I bought mine new from one of our local feed/gardening supplies stores.

I know what you mean about the plastic being thinner every year. Unfortunately.

I’ve been using 4” and 3.5” for close to 7 years now. Seeing the condition they’re in, I think I will get at least 7 more out of them.

I try to take good care of them as much as possible. When I plant the starts in the garden, I make sure the pots are empty and store them nested in each other, and out of sunlight.

For root bound, I don’t know how many plants you’re growing, or if this is doable: I have a neighboor that pots up his tomatoes to 1.5 and 2 gallons before transplanting. He does get nice plants, and it works well for his 20 tomatoes he’s growing. I cannot do that with my 100-120 plants every spring, so mine do get root bound sometimes. It’s not a big deal, and they do spring back quickly after getting in the ground.

Only my second time making this dish: Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes.

Tasty and quick to make. Who knew?
