40 Tomato plants planted

Discussion in 'Tomatoes' started by alelover, May 2, 2016.

  1. 20 San Marzanos, 10 Romas and 10 cherry toms.

  2. Now I'm jealous...

    I only have room for 5 tomato plants on the mountainside...all heirloom varieties(black krim, red brandywine, purple cherokee, and a pair of sungold cherry tomatoes) 

    My question is with the local denizens(raccoons, deer, squirrels, rabbits, etc) at our new place...whether they see my mini garden as theirs... [​IMG]  

    I'm hoping, that by leaving some of the wild peas growing, that it will appease the deer somehow... [​IMG]

    If not, it's back to mixing a "hot" chili powder, into used coffee grounds, and spreading it around my tomatoes. Only problem with this method, the raccoons seem to enjoy spicy tomatoes(at least at my old place they did)... [​IMG]
  3. I have a cat that chases the rabbits and squirrels off. The deer never come up close to the garden.
  4. The mountain lions and bobcats are "my" cats... 

    House cats and dogs are on the menu around here... [​IMG]
