Tomato, tomahto

Here it is as it looked last week; my new tomato plot. A plain triangle, a few grass clipping layered over a little compost.

We covered the area with cardboard and newspaper last fall, outlined it with a few posts and spare boards, and let nature do its job over the winter.

To read the rest, go to Green Spot-On!

I just found out my neighbor planted 24 tomato plants...he and his wife are retired. She told him it's all on him!

Sweet! We just have the two plants this year, hanging in buckets on the porch.

We put newspapers down after we plant the tomatoes, then put grass clippings on top of it. If you put three or four layers of newspaper down, it keeps the weeds from popping up for a while.
