I just looked at how long it’s been since I blogged, and I’m kind of stunned. I’ve been working on a number of projects at once and the last month has positively passed in a blur.
But now that it is near the end of February, what time is it Mr. Wolf? (who remembers that childhood game? No one under 30, I’d imagine…) It is time to plant my tomatoes!
Last year I had moderate success with my tomatoes, I’d planted 3 varieties of cherry tomatoes and had a nice little crop, although last year was a terrible year for tomatoes. The weather was too wet, the sun came out too late, all things beyond my control, aside from the fact that I am not the world’s best gardener.
This year I’m going to try again, but I bought seeds for bigger tomatoes, and I have 2 metal tomato-plant holders for the larger and heavier varieties that I have bought.
Last year the best tomatoes I grew were the ones that never made it outside, they survived nicely in my office window, and they did better when I realized I had to manually cross pollinate them.
Wish me luck! Here goes.
