This is no lie....I didn't get much from my tomato plants last spring, but had a bunch in the fall. The garden was so muddy, I got what i could one time and left the rest on the vine. My garden has literally been too wet to till ever since! We're talking complete mud pit for at least 4 months now.

10' sounds about right. They get big, but they stopped producing when the heat turned up and didn't start again until late September.

Unimpressed.

Oh... and the skins on them are really tough too.
Okay, well I always have volunteer cherry tomatoes, so they can help...But DANG, 10 FEET? scared

If I hadn't moved our garden to the lake house a few years back, I'd be in the same ship. The garden area of Joshua is swampy too...There has been a LOT more rain north of us than we've gotten...

Okay, just got back from Meridian and picked up another 48 plants...Grand total of 108 will be planted in the garden next week after I get them acclimated to the temperatures by setting them out on the screened in porch...

I also met a new fishing buddy...Man it has been a great day today...

They were all the way up to the eaves of the house. All I know is to hang the hummingbird feeder up there, I've gotta get a ladder. So it may just be 9' ... but doubtful. And that's not counting what decided to make a break for it from the trellises and spread all over my lawn. mad

Hey, its better than some of the roses I know of. Labeled as grows 5-6 feet.... but had a friend down in Houston fall into her 20' monster and have to go to the emergency room to get all the thorns surgically removed scared

Wow...Okay, that's gonna be tall one...I guess my sisters can pick those tomatoes if they want them...grin

My neighbor had a similar rose over here at the lake, it started pulling down the overhead phone line that's at least 15 feet high...He and the other neighbor got into who actually owned the rose because it was over taking the fence and neither one had lived here long enough to have planted it...It wasn't until the thing was taken out that they knew who actually owned it...rolfmao

If the tomatoes are climbing that high, vertically, you might be able to drape it over the other side (if it's growing on a trellis). I haven't done this personally, but I have heard of people doing this.

onions are coming up nicely, peas are busting through the ground. I put 4 heads of lettuce out and killed the other 10 when they got flooded in the container I had them in. Tomatoes are about 6" tall now and peppers are about 4". My plan is to start hardening up some of the tomatoes by keeping them out for a little each evening here over the next week and have them in the ground by 3/25. Peppers can wait... They're doing in the garage.

I'm glad your onions are doing well...It's a shame about the lettuce, but you really shouldn't pee in your vegetable containers...

That could actually be a pepper plant that the seed didn't come off before it grew...Try to GENTLY remove the disc without pulling off the leaves or breaking the stem...


Well, I got home, and it was dead and shriveled up. So, no picture, lol.

Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

Got to get rid of the winter crop to make room for spring. All greens still producing, haven't dug the parsnips yet, still a few turnips, spinach still doing well where I've kept it cut, gone to seed where I didn't. Three types of leaf lettuce still going strong, as is curly endive. Arugula going to seed as well, that stuff grows like weeds!
Planted 9 Celebrity tomatoes in 1 gal. pots on Feb. 10, will keep them there until end of Mar. They are about 6" tall now. Going to put clear plastic around cages this year, and keep it there as long as possible, not for heat units, but to guard against thrips that carry tomatoe wilt virus.
Will see what I can squeeze in between fishing trips.
* Seven hens from last May are avg. 4 eggs a day.
