We managed to get all of the first round of organic heirloom tomatoes out and into the ground of our main field. It ended up being just over 2,000 plants total. Whew! What you see in the photo on the right is the stakes set for them to grow. Some of the vines will grow as tall as 6 feet!
This week we’ve been busy getting the next patch of ground ready for peppers, eggplant and the last few tomatoes that weren’t quite ready for going out. This will end up being another 2,000 or so plants and will take Miguel, Anibal and I all Saturday morning to get them in. Then we get a bit of a break and don’t have to worry about getting any more in for a few weeks yet.
