I understand about grafting fruit trees - is that the same goal for grafting tomatoes? You want a sturdier root stock than the fruiting variety grows on its own?

My husband is military and is getting transferred. We'll probably be in New Orleans for about 3 years. We're hoping to rent the house here since houses are not selling. I hope another gardener moves in otherwise.... I need to update my pictures, nothing looks quite like that anymore (except the high tunnel). I have a lot more garden area now.
The high tunnel (I can't heat it because it's located under transfer lines) was really easy to make, well, relatively speaking. We haven't changed anything on the frame since we put it up 5 years ago. It's been through a hurricane (minus the covering) and a couple of tropical storms so it's pretty sturdy. However, we have changed the inside of it quite a few times, learning by trial and error.

Si vales, valeo.

Container Gardening is a lot of fun. Are you moving permanently or just temporary? Sorry to hear that your gardening activities are put on hold. What will happen to your greenhouse? I love your Greenhouse.. makes me want to set one up.

I've read a lot of articles on grafting tomatoes and "they" say certain varietals work better than others, unfortunately I can't at this moment think of them.
Recently, I found out that my husband and I will be moving to New Orleans next May/June. So I won't be starting any new gardening activities this year (other than moving around some bushes and such.
We will probably rent in New Orleans and I guess I will learn a lot more about container gardening! The hardiness zone is only a notch up from here but the heat zone is up 2 full zones.
I love your videos and thanks for sharing! emoticon

Has anyone tried it and has had success?

Not sure how mine are going to turn out but i figured it would make a fun winter gardening project.
