Project Tomato - A New Start

Category: Tomatoes | Posted: Sun Jul 27, 2014 4:11 am

Finally after 2 long years I managed to get my hands on Epsom Salt and it rekindled my interest in planting tomatoes. In my last "successful attempt" I managed to get some regular tomatoes but they were more like large cherry tomatoes.

OK This time I am going to plant real cherry tomatoes because the aim now is to get garden fresh tomatoes for salad instead of making tomato paste or sauce. I have two different varieties and one is a hybrid.

The one on the right is the hybrid and I got these seeds about a year ago. Prepared the bed with 75% compost and 25% black soil which I got from my neighbor. According to him black soil is burnt soil combined with other vegetation. I found quite a fair bit of coconut husk in it.

I put in 3 seeds of each type separately into each starter. The starters were placed in a place where they get the morning sun.

And now keeping my fingers crossed and counting the days...

Great to see you are able to think and plan for your garden again. Can't wait to see how those tomatoes do.

Thanks all, now deciding which brand of potting soil to buy.
