We do! That’s why we planted tomatoes in the backyard!
We thought 3 plants would be a good start for this year. Two are Early Girls and I think the other is an Early Goliath. We did a little research about tomatoes and found out that tomatoes with a short growing season do best here since Seattle has a short summer that isn’t very hot. So, we opted to buy some tomato starts at the farmers market that were grown by a local farm, The Root Connection.
Alex planted them a couple weeks ago along the back of the house. They’re in a spot near the house where they’ll stay nice and warm and get sun almost the entire day. Let’s hope all the research we’ve done this year helps to produce some yummy fruit.
PS. See the grass?? Yes, it’s growing! And these pictures are from two weeks ago. Since then, Alex has mowed it a couple times and today he was re-seeding spots that haven’t come in well. We’re a little behind on taking updated pictures, but I assure you it’s doing very well and we will share it soon.
