It has been a good week for gardening with warm temperatures and over an inch of rain. I wondered how my tomato plants in the compost bin would do, but the experiment is a success. A week ago, see Compost Gardening Experiment, the plants were just at the top of the chicken wire compost container. This week they are twice as high and have small green tomatoes and many blossoms. Besides growing in fertile soil in the compost bin, an added benefit is the chicken wire compost frame which will be useful for securing a tomato support. The wire frame is also helping to keep the squirrels away from the plants. They don’t seem to like climbing the flexible sides of the frame. I had to repair damage from squirrels digging around the okra plants in a near-by raised vegetable bed, so I am happy to keep the squirrels away from the tomatoes plants.
