Tomatoes planted today. With eight foot tall cages, and Alfalfa meal.

I planted 6 plants today. Some Beefsteak, Aunt Gertie Golden,Radiator Charley's mortgage Lifter, And Big Zac. The soil temperature is 48 degrees, and I'm hoping that with the plastic surround it will raise the temperature a few degrees. I made some eight foot tall cages out of concrete reinforcing mesh. I also worked a whole bag of Alfalfa meal into the soil. I used it last year and was pretty impressed with the quantity of tomatoes. It is supposed to help with blossoming and fruit set.
