What a Difference a Month (and a little Miracle-Gro) Makes!

Up-Close and Blooming!

Tomatoes at 1-Month

The temperature is hovering around 100 degrees today. My tomato plants are holding  steadfast with their heavy layer of straw mulch, generous watering, and thorough daily dustings.  Miracle-Gro is administered weekly. All suckers removed on sight.

At one month, nine of the twelve plants have marble-sized tomatoes – all ample bloom. So far, no signs of disease or dying.

It will be interesting to hear what the report will be one month from now. Will it be delicious tomato sandwiches, or pulling up the vines?

“Ah, sweet mystery of life…”
