LOL! That's so funny years ago when I was a kid my Dad and Mom grew some beefsteaks and some cherry toms and they just let them grow wild but since it was just tomatoes there was plenty of space. Unfortunately I got wrong advice and planted my toms too close together and now that they're growing a lot there ain't any room between them and they are getting too wild so I have to trim some back but I wanted to make sure I don't mess them up before I get to trimming. I have a lot of stuff in my garden and not a lot of room left. I think I placed everything else far enough apart except maybe the corn could of been a tiny bit farther away from each other. Since this is my first time I guess some mistakes are expected. It's all about trial and error, next year I will be doing some things different, I will have more space for the plants for sure and Using better cages and trellis's. Plus I will probably plant 8 strawberry plants instead of just 2 cause 2 is just not enough same with my cucumbers. Any way for a first timer I think me and my husband are doing darn good. I guess I will have to go outside when it cools down later today and trim my wild maters cause right now they've gone crazy.hit or miss wrote:Sorry, I'm not much help other than to say try the stickies at the top of the page. I let my maters go haywire every year, in the cage, out of the cage, all over the garden!
