I told my self I wouldn’t be growing tomatoes this year, we don’t have the garden space (yet) and there are several places around here with U-Pick tomatoes.But then something in the air (anyone else love the smell of tomato leaves? Smells like summer to me!) made me bring home these guys:
A six pack of Roma Tomatoes.
A little leggy but nothing hard to fix.
Start by getting your maters out of the little six packs.
Add a few inches of soil the the bottom of a container.
Snip off the lowest leaves, there shouldn’t be that many.
Spread out the roots and place the plant deep in the pot.
Gently fill in with more soil.
You want to cover the stem!
You won’t immediately see a ton of growth.
For the next little while the plants will be focused on root growth so it’s going to look like nothing is going on above ground.
It’s the same reason why when you transplant annuals nothing happens and nothing happens and then suddenly out of no where you have 3 foot tall marigolds.
Keep them watered, sunny and warm and you’ll be eating tomatoes in no time!
Make sure you come back this weekend!
I’ve got two amazing guest posters including the first in my Wedding Bells Series!
