Around the Yard
By: Tricia Craven Worley
A child’s wagon makes an easy-to move base for off-season tomatoes. Two tomato plants in separate 10-gallon containers can easily fit in such a wagon. Let the plants grow outdoors as long as the warm weather lasts. As temperatures begin to fall, wheel the plants indoors overnight and back outdoors during the day.
It doesn’t take long and you could harvest fresh tomatoes until Christmas. Remember to stake the plants well and make sure that the plants can fit through the door. Also keep on eye on them so that they don’t become root bound in their containers.
