Beautiful indeed, my tomatoes are still small potted babies.

Re: First 2016 Tomato Flowers

is it funny i feel like the other plants would feel jealous if i didn't take pictures of them too!??

here are some more of the recovered plants:

the aunt ginny's purple tomato is still showing some. weird growth i think, but everything else seems great.

(Lindsay is referring to the fact that i got some really awful manure from a big box store that had herbicides in it and it messed up my whole garden pretty badly, i had to replace a few plants and learned an important lesson :) )

Re: First 2016 Tomato Flowers

I'm glad they're doing better! You can still see it a little bit, but they're looking like CHAMPS!!!!

I think your little garden would look absolutely STUNNING! With pine straw! If you could find a bunch of news paper or a 2 ply layer brown paper (like you can get rolls of it at big box store in the paint department!) underneath it, y'all would be SET for weed control (and moisture control) And your pretty heirlooms would be oh so happeh! And you would be oh so happeh!

I think you will really like the Lemon Boy and the Brandywine! I think Lemon Boy was one of my first Heirlooms!
