Day 71 – Tomato Comparisons

Tomato plants are all a little small, but the one picked up at the Williamsburg Farmer’s Market is outdoing them all. Of the tomatoes from seed, the lasagna bed has the most green, while the hugelkultur bed is almost the same height and only slightly less dense. The self-watering bed is only slightly taller than the banana box bed.  The other tomatoes that are looking small but hearty are the third picture – these in banana boxes.  The one to the left was only planted last week, while the other two have been in their boxes for about three weeks.

Tomatoes from the four different beds.

Clockwise from the top right: Lasagna bed, hugelkultur bed, banana box bed, self-watering bed.
