tomato garden

Last weekend my husband and I cleaned out our tomato garden. We have a patio in our back yard and on either side by the garage and the house we kept some edible gardening space. One bed has herbs and the other will now have 8 varieties of heirloom tomatoes. It's a great location because the sun reflects from the building onto my tomatoes and they are happy all summer long. Last year we placed them there in pots and we almost had more tomatoes than what we could eat. After clearing all of the weeds, we added worm castings, mushroom compost and coconut coir. It looks great and I can't wait for the weather to clear up so I can plant my tomatoes.
