Default today I prepared tomato bed

This is all the room I have to grow tomatoes...about room for 7 plants. I turned the soil with a shovel today and mixed in composted cow manure. I'll set plants out in a couple of weeks. The dog has already dug several holes.

Default My little tomato bed

I have room for only 7 plants. Today I turned the soil and mixed in composted cow manure. I'll set out plants in about 2 weeks. The dog has already dug several holes.

Default Sticking plants wherever/Cherokee Carbon

I filled up the tomato bed, but still wanted to try a few more varieties. Since I ran out of ground, I put these two in pots and stuck them by the little goldfish pond. The one on the right is Cherokee Carbon. Anyone try this one?

Default Marglobe

This is in the middle of a butterfly/hummingbird garden because I ran out of room in the tomato bed. Live oaks are dropping their leaves now and leaves are everywhere.

The name of that tomato variety is "Big Beef".
Big Beef is a hybrid tomato popular in the USA.
