First, I put in the 6 tomatoes in their towers. They were already put together, so it was only a matter of pruning away some of the bottom leaves and then planting them deeply. I try to plant about 2/3rds of the total plant to give them a good start.
The tomatoes are: San Marzano, Juliet, Hillbilly, Aunt Ruby's German green, Isis Candy, and the Lemon Boy. I decided to put the Blush in a pot instead as it's looking a little spindly. Not sure what's going on with it, but I'm going to baby it along.
|This big guy was in one of the tomato towers! Huge, but the chickens made fast work of him!|
|My garden markers this year. This actually says Calima Bean, but its hard to read with the water droplets on it. Sigh...|
purple tomatillo plants that I started from seed. I got these in California last year when we visited with JR and Ashley and took a trip to the Baker Seed Bank. Great germination, even though these seeds were a year old already. The last plant was a single green tomatillo plant that I purchased.
That's enough for today....we "may" have rain tonight which would be great. I'm actually trying to remember what rain looks like. Crossing fingers that it does!
