Tomatoes are fickle
We are trying to grow a few vegetables in this unreasonably hot and dry central Texas Spring. Well ok, for all practical purposes it is now Summer.
The 12 inch boxes are filled with the best dirt we could get from John Drumgoole’s Natural Gardener in southwest Austin. John has Ladybug brand among others and is a wonderful source of natural gardening knowledge.
Anyway, I’ve been watching these two starkly different examples of tomato plants in the same dirt in two different boxes. Weird, huh? Either we bought a small weed resembling a tomato plant along with the real tomatoes, or the lone tomato plant feels very socially isolated and is in deep depression.
