This is taken out my back window. Tomato plants on the right, Elephant Ears on the left
Wow, what a beauty! Is that a raised garden bed? What kind of stakes do you use to stake the tomato plants? I didn't tie them to stakes and I learned my lesson. I honestly didn't think they would do well, and I am inexperienced (sounds like you've been gardening a very long time, yes?). I didn't want to buy those pieces of wood they sell in Lowes to stake the tomatoes. Will have to get them next year. (I didn't know much they cost). I prefer the smaller tomatoes that don't grow too tall (I'm little!) Next time I walk in the park I'll be on the lookout for large broken branches...
I just noticed my neighbor has one red tomato! My DH is sure they will turn red. I already lost hope... I don't know!!
I think those are the largest ears I have seen.
I'm loving the tomato plants.
Wow you tomato plants look great. Ours didn't do so good this summer.
Are your ears in full sun? I had some in the sun & they looked like they were getting burned.

Have patience Wavy.. they'll turn red in time. My DH is a scrounger.. Any big stick, pole, broom handle he can come upon he brings home..and yes.. I learned to garden from my Mom during WW 2
Great looking maters and ears!

Gorgeous. Where did you get the pieces of art.
Owie..which pieces of art?
In the window?
Very Nice ~~ they are so healthy! What's your secret? Are those EE's first year or have you saved them in the past?
"Those that throw mud, lose ground!" :>)
The "artwork" in the window are plastic flowers that Michaels had a couple of years ago for $1 each.. The EES are in their 3rd year. The bulbs/tubers were huge last fall when I dug them up.. Imagine they'll be nearly soccer ball size this year.. I dig them up when it gets chilly, either too chilly for me or them. Let them dry a few days on the back porch and then store them in a cardboard box in an unheated cellar.. I do spritz them once or twice over the winter if I remember. I'd love tostart them in the house this spring as they take FOREVER to break ground.. No fertilizer..just a scoop of Good Garden Soil in each hole. and lots of water.. They tell you when they need it. Tomatoes got the same thing.. Good Garden Soil and water.
