During Spring Break, other types of tomatoes (the real ones) go wild. The heirlooms were planted on March 1, 2010. Less than one week later, the seedlings sprouted on March 6, 2010. On March 28, the seedlings were transplanted into the kegger type Dixie cups until they are ready to be planted in the ground.
Here’s how the varieties look today.
One bed is ready to accept 16 (4X4) of the 53 tomato plants. 53?! What the heck was I thinking? There will be a second bed planted with tomatoes once the peas, garlic, beets, carrots are finished. That leaves me with 21 plants to adopt out.
Farmer MacGregor will be designing and constructing the frames to string these plants. Stay tuned.
