Tomato Garden on June 3rd, 2011

Before planting the seedling tomato plants in the boxes and buckets, we hardened the plants by keeping them outside. We grouped them in bags to allow rain and sunlight, but give them some protection from the high winds we've been experiencing.

We wrapped twine around the vines for support. At this time of the season, we're mostly concerned with winds. Later, these will support the thick vines and heavy tomatoes.

We've installed earth boxes unde the main trellis, and a similar design out of 5 gallon buckets.
