tomato crop 2016
Who knew it was going to be a good year for tomatoes? I would have had triple the amount if I had done a better job of weeding and tying up tomatoes. I also normally plant more than 8/9 plants.
The rats have hit them also, or possums. I've also fed several icky looking ones to the wild turtles and of course I have to share with the chickens, although too many scraps to the chickens equal less eggs.
I've really enjoyed tomatoes, but unfortunately, the acid really gets to my guts, so I've had to cut back while steady having to watch them ripen indoors. SAFE from the bugs.
I really need to take a picture of my sorry looking weed filled patch, but its a bit embarrassing.
