our new tomato plants


our new tomato plants

I've never grown tomatoes before, but I figured it can't be that difficult. The pots are huge, Fred had the idea to place them on wheeled platforms so I can roll them around.

I have a feeling this will not be the last blog photo of these plants!

good luck with your tomatoes, val! my great uncle george said the secret to his amazing tomatoes was a good soaking with miracle-gro after planting. nothing beats fresh homegrown tomatoes. now plant a pot of basil too -- heavenly combination!

ohhh - last year we grew tomatoes starting in June. The plants died in the beginning of September due to frost. There were over 1,000 tomatoes from 3 plants. That's why we call my dad the Tomato Whisperer.

Yes, you would think that it wouldn't be that hard to grow plants, but for some reason mine didn't grow well at all last year. It may be because I neglected them a bit, but I still think they should have done a little better than they did. They got watered. I do not have a green thumb whatsoever.

Lisa, yes it was likely the water issue. No matter, you are doing a great job raising those 3 young boys...tomatoes are small stuff! lol! Nice to see you!
