Hello again from West Virginia.
It has been a long time since I last posted, things have been a bit wild this year. Finally got my greenhouse put up, and my seedlings started. Had to babysit them this year because of the record cold temps we were getting. That along with the wind and rain, I still have not transplanted everything into the garden.
This year,I am using most of my present garden spot to grow a variety of tomatoes, both heirloom and hybrids. So far my heirlooms are Arkansas Traveler, Woodly Orange, Polish red, Carbon, and Green Velvet. I always plant bush beef, yellow tangerine and cherry jubile as sturdy standbys. I will add more heirlooms as I get them.
After talking to some older tomato farmers, I have decided not to cage my heirlooms, but grow them on a trellis instead. I know this will take up a lot more room in my garden, but I have 10 acres, 7 of which I can plant. I will add some photos as the seasons progresses.
Anyone that has grown heirlooms in the past or are growing some this year, I would like to hear about your success or problems. Your experiences will be be my best teacher.
Until next time-be safe and God bless.
So long from West Virginia
