We continue our tomato growing this year, with good results so far.
How do we grow the red lovelies on a mountaintop, during a short season? First, we start from seedlings. We'd like to try seeds, but haven't been able to get the right environment for them yet. Cold frame or greenhouse: that might help.
Second, we prepare beds. Most are old tires, which are terrific: black, so retaining heat; a few inches high, so keep the soil up a bit. We also made some extra beds with rocks. Then poured in compost, into which the seedlings settled. Then added frames for them to grow up:
PS: by "us" I (Bryan) mean Ceredwyn. These are her babies; she did all the work.
