    I’ve just finished a short video on pruning tomatoes, watch for it on Wednesday. The only plants I’ve ever pruned are tomatoes–they grow hog wild and you either need really good support, or to prune them. Another reader pointed to a video where the guy prunes his zucchini. I am trying it, and will take pictures and report on how it goes.

    It has emitters every 6 inches. I find this waters pretty evenly.

    What is the spacing of your built in emmitter tubing? I’m using drip tape right now and am not too happy with it. Thanks for a great blog!!!

    You mentioned that you prune your Sweet 100 tomato. I have one too and want to maximize production. How do you prune it? Also, should I prune any other plants, and if so, how? (In particular, potatoes, squash, cukes, tomatoes, peppers.)

    Thanks! Your blog is helpful! This is my first year with a square foot garden, and so far, I love it!

  5. Emily,
    Thanks very much for inviting me to guest post on your blog. I would enjoy doing that very much. Feel free to email me with the details, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

    Also, congrats on getting your gardens in, and Happy Birthday to you!

    What does that look like? Do you have a picture you can send me?

    Hey, one thing I’ve been doing with my drip line in the boxes is I put in a microsprinkler for each box. That helps with my seed germination because the dripline doesn’t get the surface wet very well. Just a tip.
