The last of the vegetables have been planted. By my count (which is almost certainly off), 55 heirloom tomato plants of 12 types were planted in the ground this past weekend.
We got off to an early start this year with the staking of 2″x2″x42′ stakes, to help tie up the plants later on.
We also had some leftover straw (not hay!) and used it to lightly mulch the area.
A few hours after planting we discovered adult Colorado Potato bugs eating the potato-leaf types of tomato and laying eggs already! We think they winter over in the soil and pop up in the spring.
