Good Food Producer Harriet Ells is growing tomatoes this spring and summer. After two failed attempts, she sought the council of Scott Daigre of Tomatomania.
Almost exactly a month ago I planted my little tomato seedlings. I’m proud to say they are now in adolescence. Puberty, maybe. Early on, Scott commented that I needed to add more soil to the pots. I did that, and I added some fertilizer. It worked! They are growing like crazy. In one of the plants, I even spied an actual tomato. I’m finding that I need to water more and more, especially as the weather gets warmer. I’ve been testing it by sticking my finger a couple of inches into the dirt to see how damp the soil is. Scott said to fertilize every 10 days so I’ll continue to do that, although there is a danger of “overfeeding.”
How are your plants doing? I’d love to hear your advice and thoughts on what I’m doing. I don’t think my thumb is green, yet. Though maybe the black is starting to fade.
