    OK, it’s deep winter, so it’s time to start thinking, planning for next spring, and now’s the time to do it :)

    I found this interesting article on how to grow better, bigger and more tomatoes

    http://www.hometalk.com/446407/tomatoes-and-their-need-for-water

    I started may 28th planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can with holes drilled in the bottom rim and a second row up about 10 inches… buried the can to where the top holes just barely were above the ground… put in two shovels full of compost… then I fill the can up with water ever 2 days and try not to water the leaves… these four plants are now 5 ft 4 inches in less that a month and a half and loaded with green tomatoes and about a hundred sets of tomato blossoms…

    • End of June topping the 3 ft cage
    • July 9th after a week of record high temps and very little rain…the plants here are loaded with tomatoes inside the cage and full of blooms too!
