  •  You grow tomatoes in the woods? (1+ / 0-)

    Our tomatoes haven't ever done very well and we've got at least "partial" sunlight. How do you do it?

    •  Well, the "garden" is a small "cleared" area ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... and does get some sun.  Last year I apparently did a much better job at preparing the soil and keeping the plants watered but not overwatered.  Because of the lack of sun, the tomato vines were "stretching" and got very long.  I built a rather elaborate lattice of tree branches to prop up the vines, and kept adding to the lattice as they got longer.  Right now, it's a quarter past twelve and the sun has yet to clear the trees enough to get to the plants.

      I am concerned that the forecast for tonight is 34 degrees.  I guess I should cover the plants with something.
