The harvest

Posted by Charles II on July 26, 2015


These are actually the seconds and the ones that are still ripening. And they continue to pour in.

Thanks be to God!

    WOW, Charles they look great. I got such a late start this yr I don’t even have any green ones yet.

      I planted as early as I could, and suffered some weather damage as a consequence.

      I use Earthboxes, which deliver water and fertilizer almost perfectly–the only problem seems to be that the tomatoes grow so fast that they really need to be watered twice a day, which I can’t do, so some split.

      Another trick that seems to help is using 10% calcium chloride solution as a spray to prevent blossom rot.

  2. Mine are just starting to ripen.

      Gotta start as soon as one can after the last frost, and use well-rooted seedlings. Then you get most of the growth in before the bugs get going. Plus: Earthboxes. They do a lot to help rapid growth.
