Tomatoes 2018

4/21…I think it may be too late to start tomatoes from seeds so I picked up four plants from Wilco while they were on sale…. Brandywine Red,  Celebrity, Cherokee Purple and Black Krim.  I planted them deep and tomorrow will top dress them with some veg fertilizer.

4/23…I added two more tomato plants from Wilco into the bed nearest the chicken coop.  The uphill side has a San Martino paste tomato and the downhill side has a Brandywine Gold.
