Hi New Readers!
If you dropped by today after reading the Sun-Sentinel article (found here), welcome!
We're midway through tomato season around here, and my first planting is rapidly approaching harvest time. The first plants went outside around the first week of October. I just did a second planting around January 1, so those will be ready for harvest as the spring begins to heat up. So far, this season has been a challenge—it's been all about the fungal diseases this year. But nevertheless, soon the tomatoes will begin to come off the vine, and although I'm expecting a smaller harvest than in years past, we'll still have plenty of fresh fruit for the next few months.
Feel free to poke around and check back every week or so. I try to post about once a week, but it doesn't always work out that way. And if you're a tomato grower yourself, please feel free to share your experience. Because there's no wrong way to grow your own.
