Tomatoes in Ground (some)

Written by Chris on March 26th, 2011

Got the garden ready for tomatoes. Info:

Central soil area of garden measures 19′ x 2′

Added 2 1.5 cu. ft. bags of Ladybug Revitalizer Compost, 1 1.5 cu. ft. bag of Farm Style Compost. 8 lb. dolomite. 2lb 10oz of GardenTone organic fertilizer. Planted three tomatoes (the rest not quite big enough yet, plus we have a bit of a cold snap coming this week): from south to north: Black Krim, Bush Early Girl, Paul Robeson.

Update 4/9: planted the remaining tomatoes. Had to deviate from original plans because the plants I grew from seed were just too small to plant (I planted the seeds too late), so rounded up some interesting varieties from the nurseries. So completing the bed from south to north are Lemon Boy, Orange Oxheart, Black Prince and Sweet 100 Cherry.

    I have another question…do you know how to handle strawberries? I am not sure what the best soil etc. would be and what kind to get?
