Growth starting on tomatoes...

  Tomatoes are really just getting growing for us at this time of year. As usual in Northeastern Arizona we try to get the tomatoes in as early as we dare, but the tomatoes really don't start growing until the first of July which is when the humidity from the rains from our monsoon storms hit our area of the desert southwest.
  I planted tomato plants over a 5 to 6 week period as work would permit. My tomato plants are at different stages of life right now but that's a good thing I will have a lot of tomatoes ripening at different times.

    The biggest trick at this stag is to feed your tomatoes every two weeks. I feed mine with a mix I get from the our local feed store.  I use a organic tomato feed called Tomato Tone.

 The peppers are just starting to grow. They will look so much better in a couple of weeks.
