Caged Tomatoes on South Field Plateau
This is a picture from earlier in the summer of volunteer tomatoes in cages on the south field plateau. Tomato caging is the only form of confinement farming we do, but even most of the tomatoes are free to roam about. These are volunteers which I had talked about yesterday. Some of them we dug up and transplanted to other areas. They do far better than the ones I start indoors. For decades I would start plants each spring indoors. I’ve decided though that the volunteers are better and now I just transplant them to preferred locations if needed. It is cheaper since I’m not buying seed, peat pots, paying for lighting, etc. This saves a lot of work and I get better plants for my kitchen gardens.
