Tomatoes

Our cherry tomatoes have started to roll in. This year we planted 2 cherries and 4 Roma tomato plants. We have had bad luck with larger varieties. Usually they start to rot before they turn red. This year we tried putting down a red plastic thing that claims to be a Tomato Yield Booster and it actually seems to work.

Instead of tomato cages we used bamboo stakes and trellis netting inspired by the Square Foot Gardener (see pic below). My husband has been a huge fan, but we have had some failures as a result of his suggestions. Zucchinis and Watermelon will not climb a trellis in our yard.
