I was on a gardening outing last week at a local iris farm, and on my drive home my co-pilot gardener and I had to stop by Morningsun Herb Farm since we were driving right by. What fun, we both love to window shop in spring and pick up a few newbie's to try in our gardens. We found a good assortment of basil, squash, and tomatoes. I chose 'Pruden's Purple' as my tomato experiment this year. I have just found that others have grown this indeterminate variety to a size of 6 to 12 feet tall. My, my. The fruit are about one pound each and are similar to 'Brandywine', another of my favorites. So, I thought maybe I should put up some support now. I just happen to have a number of old trellises in storage. Our side fence finally crashed with a recent wind storm. I salvaged a number of trellises and thought "why not!". So this morning I pulled out some leftover acrylic paint and have given three trellises a new purpose.
So now with the trellises and pots this year for the veg garden, trying to be a little neater this year, well at least I will try.
