The progress of some of my tomatoes as of June 16th.

This group of tomatoes had the bottom leaves pruned out and a grass mulch put down to prevent soil splash diseases from getting on the plants.

The 'Black Krim' was started in my hot-house garden cage earlier than the rest of my tomatoes. It is about 1 1/2 the size of the other plants. You can see how I built the cage here: How to Build a Hot-House Tomato Cage.

Below is my disease bed design the has plastic and mulch covering the the soil. It is to prevent soil born diseases from getting on the tomatoes. So far so good! Check out how it was built at this blog entry: How to Build a Disease Barrier Raised Bed.
