Tomato Bed.

Tomato Bed.

Home Depot was having a sale on their large vegetable plants, 5 for $10. which is about 50% off. It appears that the grower was overstocked because of the cold, wet spring.

So, I decided to do all large tomato plants this year, except for the Roma tomatoes, since I dry most of those and early harvest isn’t important.


Here’s what got planted:

  • 2 Early Girl Hybrids
  • 1 Big Boy Hybrid
  • 1 Big Beef Hybrid
  • 1 Heinz Super Roma Hybrid
  • 1 Red Beefsteak Hybrid
  • 2 German Queen Heirloom
  • 1 Mr. Stripey Heirloom
  • 1 Cherokee Purple Heirloom
  • 1 Black Prince Heirloom
  • 2 Lemon Boy Hybrids
Hot Pepper Bed

In the pepper bed by the back fence, I worked in manure and mushroom compost and planted:

  • 4 Hot Hungarian Banana Peppers
  • 4 Jalapeno Peppers
