Behold! The experiment!

We’d hoped by putting tomatoes on landscaping fabric they’d be protected better from disease and rot.

Because, staking tomatoes is a lot of work. If you’ve done it, you know what I’m talking about. And I’m not talking about those cages that flop over in a high wind. I’m talking about the kind of staking that requires a post driver…

Alas, the landscaping fabric didn’t really show much improvement compared to the ground. There only one way to learn, right?

Nonetheless, these plants produced happily and heartily. The crop of tomatoes that could be plucked from the clutches of blight and rot were enjoyed immensely.

I’m glad we had the opportunity to experiment with something new.
