Daily Crack Photo Blog – Tips and tidbits from our everyday frenzy
Our tomatoes are a bit confused. They’re exploding with new growth and flowers in October, thinking it’s the peak of Summer. The three wine/whiskey barrels to the left are overflowing with new branches, while the barrel on the right has a new plant (seeded by birds) that’s growing like a weed.
And oh, Sierra is in the middle to give reference to how crazy huge these tomato plants are!
Tip – We purchased these whisky/wine barrels at our local hardware store for about $25. They’re wonderful as instant container gardens and big enough to let vegetable roots stretch out. Just ask the folks at the store to drill a few drainage holes at the bottom, fill the barrels with some good draining soil and you have an instant veggie garden!
Their vintage, patina look is mighty impressive too.
