Snow Falls Silently On Tomatoes...

Category: Hydroculture | Posted: Sun Dec 11, 2016 3:15 am

...Sort of. I have more than fifty Mega Cherry Tomatoes coming in and I'm eagerly anticipating eating them on the Winter Solstice or thereabouts.

To allow for air circulation, I pruned the plants back somewhat brutally the other day. The leaves were really thick in some places, to the point of collecting moisture and causing some of the tomatoes to split open. I got to them before any real damage was done.


Now, all I can do is wait. They're all green for the moment. They're the right color for cup ripening but I think I will wait for them to ripen on the vine this time around.


Other than this, nothing much is happening. All the other plants are doing well. I am doing well. I am currently knitting and crocheting things and keeping busy while I wait, rather impatiently, for the Not So Secret Garden to become available.


About the only change that has occurred is that my friend, who was going to give me rides to and from the garden site in exchange for some of the produce, has moved out of state.


So, I'm now scrambling to figure out how I'm going to lug my potential bountiful harvest home or my tools there. I've been looking on Amazon for utility wagons and found a few that might be suitable. It's just a question of:


1. Finances

2. Distance

Money was tight enough before but dropping over $100 USD on a wagon, while it might be a sound investment, is financially painful.


I've also got to walk the distance from home to the garden site and back again with a wagon, laden down with several pounds worth of produce, as well as my tools, in all weather and all traffic conditions.


I've got to figure out a way around this.
