I started may 28th planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can with holes drilled in the bottom rim and a second row up about 10 inches... buried the can to where the top holes just barely
were above the ground... put in two shovels full of compost... then I fill the can up with water ever 2 days and try not to water the leaves... these four plants are now 5 ft 4 inches in less that a month and a half and loaded with green tomatoes and about a hundred sets of tomato blossoms...
Several times a week someone knocks on our door and asks, "Is this 511?" "So sorry!" I'd reply, "I need to put an address sign out by the road." So finally I just got out some junk from
my junk pile and made one. Now I don't have to give directions like this, "It's the house with the fence, um, it has some mailboxes in the front, oh, and look for my white van...." Now I can just tell them the address and they can find us!
