Second Season Tomatoes
According to the Plain Garden Planting Cycle we have two tomato seasons here.
I have never tried to grow tomatoes in the second season.
By now the tomato plants are usually 10 ft tall and
I'm just fed up with watering and staking and bugs
to even think about starting this again.
But we got our plants started pretty early this year
and they were all determinate plants so they didn't get out of control.
So I cut off two branches of the old tomatoes,
stuck them in bottles of water on the windowsill
until they sprouted roots
and put them back in the cleaned-out pickle buckets.
Just two of them.
We'll see how this goes.
Gary says it will proababy go great
and we'll be mad we only did two.
