Hey Hive Fam! I wanted to share a quick update on how our tomatoes are growing.
You already know that I have uprooted the rest of our garden. We had way too many worms and the rabbits and birds demolished all of our green produce. I focus on the fact that we were still able to enjoy some of it before it was all over.
Our tomatoes have grown quite a bit and we are even starting to see some red come in…
That has been really exciting to watch. My family is looking out there everyday to watch the transition of color.
Here are some more but they haven’t started the change yet. You can see how well they are doing though…
Yay! Let’s hope we can keep going in this direction. Maybe soon we’ll be able to grab some to bring them in :D
We’ve had a few storms that have knocked some of the plants completely over. I always get out there as soon as I can to get them back up and supported again. The plants have gotten so tall that their stems are so fragile and easily bent.
Unfortunately there were several tomatoes that fell off the vine due to the storms. Some that were connected to each other I just laid over the plant and kept them out there. We bought a few in and wrapped them in newspaper to see if they’d still ripen (found this remedy online).
What do you do with fallen tomatoes?
I’m not a big fan of green tomatoes or I should say I normally don’t cook fried green tomatoes so I have no clue what else to do with them. 🤷🏽♀️
I am open to suggestions!
Well that’s all for my quick garden update. We do still have strawberries growing on the side of the house so we’ll see if any yield before the Summer is over. I’m fine either way since I used this year as a practice and trial time for gardening.
There is a lot of changes we need to make before planting another one. I refuse to plant anything until we are able to build our own raised beds where I can better organize and keep track of the plants. I think it will be easier to protect them this way.
