My Garden… tomatoes kicking butt

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

So I started a garden and I planted 3 tomato plants and 2 blueberry bushes. 1) I out about three inches with about a 3 foot radius, 2) burnt wood and laid about an inch of ash at the bottom, 3) I filled it in with topsoil, 4) I put rocks around the circumference, 5) I topped it off with about 6 inches of topsoil, 6) I mixed in a bunch of kudzu leaves in, 7) I planted the stuff…

My tomato plants were about 6 feet tall after about 8 weeks. I am getting about 2 regular tomatoes, 3 cherry tomatoes, and I should start getting 1 Roma tomatoes within a couple of days. We are eating all of the tomatoes and salted tomatoes have replaced potato chips for me.

I tried eating a green romano tomato…

I was in my garden today and one of my green romano tomatoes and it was really tasty. I’ve tried green cherry tomatoes and standard big green tomatoes, but they were bitter.

I hope I get a chance to try one of my romano tomatoes once they are red. They just won’t turn red.
