Tomatoes prepare to battle cold spring!

We got our tomatoes in the ground, ready to go fight a tooth and nail battle against this coldest spring ever in Seattle. It’s June 1st today and chilly/rainy- so we gotta cover those tomatoes. We had students pick the biggest tomato they could find in the greenhouse.

Then we built our hoophouse to keep these little fellas warm and cozy. My secret to growing giant, delicious tomatoes, is to keep them covered through June. Tomatoes love the heat and these mock-greenhouses’ really do the trick. Stay tuned for Cherry, Yellow Pear, San Marzano, Roma, and many more varieties!
