Thanks Zeke! It still blows my mind that I achieved a personal best and a UK record in a 18.9 litre (5 gallon) pot - despite the fact that I'm usually the first person I know to avoid pots at all costs. There's something there to learn for sure, tho I'm still not entirely sure what it is... I'll trying to be open to listening tho :)

Congrats all. Our bucket plant was lost to a big wind storm. Quite an accomplishment to get one to the scale.

Here I am.

Congrats to Doug. Maybe I should just abandon my garden and go for it in containers? Doug not only did very well, he changed the way I look at things. A plant in a pot on wheels can be moved out on good days and moved in on bad days etc etc. This is food for thought. Hmm.

Congrats Doug and everyone that got one to the scale! With 53 entries and only 16 fruit weighed it is clearly a big accomplishment just to get one to the scale.

That's a great point Marv.
