giant tomatoes in garden

giant tomatoes in tomato sacks

I finally planted my giant tomatoes that I’ve been growing in the house since March. Looking good-all are over 2 foot tall.  I have five ‘Big Zacs’ and 6 ‘Nick Harps’. I put on some row cover tomato sacks (like potato sacks) that I sewed up last year to protect them from the leafhopper early in the season. The leafhopper carries bacterial wilt disease but if you protect your tomatoes when they are young, they can quite often resist the disease. The young tomato plants succumb easily to bacterial wilt. The sacks also help them from getting sunburned when you first put them out.

What do you think??
