The Camp Ramshackle galley goes through quite a bit of canned tomatoes over the winter months. One evening while Eric and I were talking about our vegetable garden and the prospects of our summer garden, we decided we would like to plant more tomatoes. We'd love to produce and can more tomatoes to suit our consumption.
Enter Homegrown LA, Marta Teegan and a weekend class on growing tomatoes. Eric watched the kids at home while I ventured out to a downtown L.A. rooftop garden to attend one of Marta's classes.
The class was fantastic. One of the tips I learned about planting tomato starts is to plant them very deep, burying the lower leaves in the soil.
Ever notice how the stem of the tomato plant is fuzzy? The fuzz are roots.
