Tomatoes Running Amok


After two years of working a backyard plot where an RV had been parked for 25 years, I think… I HOPE…. I have finally conditioned the soil and coaxed it back to life.

In March, I planted out these three tomatoes plants and sowed some zucchini, cucumber, and cantaloup seeds.

Two months later I have gargantuan tomatoes bushes running amok in the yard, threatening to overcome the zukes and cukes.  So my dad and I put stakes in the ground this morning and tied the vines up.

The Early Girl bush is heavy with green fruit.  Yes, I do have a basil plant growing nearby.   We are going to feast well in a few weeks!
