Growing Urban tomatoes
Well they have finally arrived. My wife and I were doing some house keeping around the garden and I noticed that there was a small tomato hanging around. My tomato plants have taken off and are climbing straight up the stakes and trellis that we have surrounding them. Our main goal was to tie all of our branches to the stakes to that they wont fall over. There are so many little flowers and we have taken the advice of giving a gentle shake to activate pollination and pinching off some of the suckers. I really hope these guys do well. Taking a closer look, my wife and I realize that tomatoes are a major part of our diet. It will be great when we have our first.
