This week Mama Kat asked…
Prompt 3.) Do you have a green thumb? Tell us what kind of gardener you are!
I’ve attempted many a summer and style of gardening. I’ve had good success with Square Foot Gardening, but last year I decided to tone down my efforts, protect what I was growing from Jack, and move from 2 raised beds to a few containers housed within a gated section of our yard.
We had some good output of cherry tomatoes, and the girls and I thoroughly enjoyed our much smaller and more manageable “garden”.
At the end of last season, I was very late and very lazy about cleaning out the old plants.
But it turned out that my lack of efforts were rewarding to me in a HUGE way!
One day 6 weeks or so ago, I glanced over to the
what I thought were empty pots. I was a bit confused when I saw some pretty substantial green growth. As I walked through the gate and over towards them, I slowly began to realize that all that green growth was actually 10 different tomato plants!
Evidently, the tomatoes that had dropped from last year’s crop that I left sitting for waaaaaay too long, ended up producing brand new tomato plants this year!
How’s that for dumb luck?
This concludes your lesson on: How to Grow Tomatoes the Lazy Way.
