Roma's Planted!

Planted 32 Roma tomato plants this morning.  These were the ones we started from seed a while back.  These should be ready to harvest this fall.  Canning tomatoes in the fall is nice, because it doesn't get so hot!

We spread some lime and organic fertilizer down, tilled it in, set our end posts, laid out the soaker hose, laid down the weed cloth barrier, set in the middle posts, and attached the cattle fencing for a trellis.

Then this morning we cut slits in the fabric for the planting holes.  Dug the holes, set the plants in deeply, and watered them in well.  Mulched with straw, and enclosed the whole thing with chicken wire so the rabbits and chickens will not eat the plants.

Lord willing we wil have a nice harvest in a couple of months!
