Staking lots of tomatoes!

I have dubbed this year,” the year of the tomato!” because we had over 50 tomato plants come up all by themselves! So, I put some in the garden, some in the raised beds, along the fence and by the chickens. That’s a lot of planting, but I have some good supervisors when securing the tomatoes to their run!

I planted lots of heirloom tomatoes this year.

I’m intrigued by a strange looking variety, which is the brandywine tomato. The mr. Thought they were peppers! There is a striking resemblance!

We are getting so close to harvesting some of the fruits of our labor! The bush green beans will be ready soon and the zucchini are growing by the minute! I’m so excited for creating this little garden oasis in the middle of town!
