Here is my son standing in front of our garden on Eastern Ave. Our tomatoes have gone crazy, and I was definitely not prepared for all the staking they would need. They quickly outgrew their standard size small tomato cage, and I've started using anything and everything that I can find to keep them upright! My tomatoes are already starting to ripen, however some of them are splitting (see the picture below). Why is this happening? Can anyone tell me?
After catching 2 groundhogs in our yard (in a have-a-heart trap), I am now starting to see cucumbers, and Minnesota Midget cantaloupe melons appearing!
I also have some valencia onions growing, but they are small (about the size of a ping pong balls) and sticking out of the ground a bit. Does anyone know when I should pull them up? Are they supposed to stick up out of the dirt like that?
Thanks for checking out this post, and I appreciate any help you can offer me!
