The Story of Two Trellises

Today one of our neighbors and garden cohorts came over to help us trellis our beans. Beans like tomatoes need something to grow up on. Pumpkin and watermelon will grow along the ground. But other tendril like plants like green beans and tomatoes need to grow up and not along the ground. Bean plants can actually grow pretty tall like tomato plants. So, today we placed the beans into 2 types of trellises. One type (red) is circular while the other (green) is a flat web of string placed between to poles or stakes, so that the plants can grow up and have plenty of space to bare their fruit.

Tomato Plants Progress

Roma Tomato Plant

How they have grown! San Marzano and Roma Tomato have come a long way. These two tomato plants were sown several times before they survived and grew up into small plants. We believe that we had a Vole eating them from under ground and up rooting them from their mounds. We have since put in a sonic Vole and Mole repellent, which is not only Organic but is Environmentally friendly. After we installed this sonic centered repellent many of our troubles in the garden went a away. Many of the seeds we sowed directly into the ground have yet to sprout but these plants will surprise you with what they will do. Both San Marzano and Roma Tomato plants are growing up big and tall and have over come many pest attacks. Though sometimes it looked hopeless we have remained true to our Organic pursuits. There is still much we have to learn but, we have used no chemicals in the production and growth of our foods.

Our beginnings have been humble and we have learned a lot along the way. We want you to know how possible this journey is for anyone! Have you considered growing your own foods? Have you considered starting your own garden? Do you want to grow a garden without foods: a flower garden? Have you always wished you could have your own garden but something is holding you back? Someone once said a goal is best broken down into manageable and smaller goals. Write down your primary goal and then the smaller goals you will have to accomplish in order to achieve your primary goal. Share your comments with the community by posting them below.
