Loaded

It’s now approximately Week 8, and the first plot of tomato plants at the Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden are loaded with ripening tomatoes. With the help of soaker hoses; fertilizer – including Bloom Booster; absolute full day sunshine and a diligent army of honey bees the tomato production is ramping up. So fast, in fact, that’s it’s been a race for the garden volunteers to keep up with tying the vines on the stakes as they grow.

To help with judging the size/scale in this photo, the stake is 1.5 inches wide. Even accounting for a little perspective effect, these tomatoes are getting huge! The main vines are as thick as fire hoses! (Well, maybe not that thick – yet.)
