|Huge tomatoes and it's only July 7th!|
How this luck descended upon my garden I'm not sure, however, there were three new variables thrown in the mix this year. First, I bought heirloom seeds. The tomatoes in this garden are all heirloom varieties (Cherry, Thessaloniki, and Moneymaker). Second, it's a new garden bed which means all new soil. Third, I pruned the tomatoes early on this year. Apparently, this is basic knowlege, for growing tomatoes, but I had never pruned before. So add all of those new varaibles together and we have a trifecta for giant tomatoes! And then the rains came bringing the damaging winds.
