A few weeks back I bought 2 little trays of tomato plants,
Celebrity and Better Boy, both nematode resistant.
I bumped them up to my standard pot and kept them
inside until Blackberry Winter and Easter Cool Spell was past.
They grew nice roots which I teased out at the
bottom before planting. Note my fav goatskin gloves.
In the bottom of each hole, a double handful of red clay saved from my excavation project at the greenhouse patio. Around each new planted tomato went 2 double handfuls of good compost.
Blooms already. I took off the bottom four sets of leaves and planted deep
so roots can form along the stems underground.
Soil like chocolate cake. I left Toadflax and
Poppy plants when I weeded the plot.
Pinecones alound each plant discourage Kittch from digging.
Behind my tomato row are blueberries.
The light sandy field beyond will soon be planted in peanuts.
Have you planted good things to eat in your garden?
