In spite of the wet, cool conditions outside, the tomatoes in the greenhouse are putting on signficant growth and are starting for form tomatoes. This year, we’re doing something new to trellis the Sungold tomatoes, which get huge in our greenhouse. Last year, the Sungolds easily reached over 10′ high (reaching as high as the giant sunflowers we grew in the greenhouse last year). What we did was attach wood posts to the outside of the raised beds, securing them to the rafters in the greenhouse. I’m using twine to support the tomatoes as they grow up.
So far, so good with this system and the plants are forming tomatoes already.
I’ll leave you with a picture of one of the adorable hummingbirds visiting our feeder this weekend. I find them such interesting birds to watch.
