Though the sign announcing the home of our tomatoes was accurate (above), you had to know what you were looking for, since the first crop to go into that plot was watermelon radishes (left and right of top photo).
Last Saturday, the 19th, said radishes were harvested, ceding the tomatoes their designated territory (below).
Knowing that the radishes would be leaving before the tomatoes really got going, we crowded the tomato plants into the radish greenery. But it wasn’t until the radishes were removed that I realized how severe the crowding was. I don’t know what the tomatoes’ reactions were, but I exhaled sighs of relief once they had their space all to themselves.
THIS JUST IN: I’d reported earlier that we’d spotted in a couple of "extra" tomato plants in the brassica bed, where a couple of plants had failed to flourish, but it now appears we’ll be adding three more tomato plants as well.
Wednesday night, for fear that our best looking cauliflower was close to flowering, we pulled it from its brassica home. I believe i that space, and a couple other cauliflower spaces, that the tomatoes are going to take over.
