Planting Tomatoes

It was time to get the tomatoes planted, the weather was good, the ground ready, rows covered with plastic, and I found the time. So.... The trailer got loaded up with the needed equipment and tomatoes. There were 75 plus plants in nice shape for putting in the ground. Eight Taxi (a yellow determinate, tennis ball to baseball size) and the rest were New Girl, an improved Early Girl (indeterminate, very uniform fruit of tennis ball to baseball size.)

The garden cart is used for planting. First holes are punched with a bulb planter, tomato plants are set, and then given a drink of water.

Next, hoops are put in place for the row cover.

Looking across the garden with a couple of hoops over a tomato row. The Mississippi river is in the background with trees on the far bank.

The garden after the row covers are up. The three rows in the foreground are onions and shallots. Next are four rows of beets, then two and a half rows of glads. On the other side of the row covers there are two rows of kohlrabi, two more rows of beets, and another row of kohlrabi.
