Hi all. We love tomatoes in our house. Absolutely love them.

Lockdown is here, holiday plans look to be dashed and my tax came in.

Bad combination of boredom and some disposable funds, a bit of hard yakka and here we are;



I see on a lot of tom's they say up to 2.4m - I'm about to test that out. Few trailers of dirt to go in (will take a bit of time - thanks back) and then I'll string the wire mesh up but just wanted to kick this off now.

Happy gardening

Awesome!
A trellis is never high enough in my opinion, but that might be because my plants get out of control sometimes, oops! In saying that though... if you can't reach the top it might be a bit too high. :p

There's always the ladder if I am successful :hysterical:

Looking good Josh, I'll be selling some tomato seedlings on Sunday at the regenereat market in front of Cycle Station if you are after some ready to go plants. I have Roma & Cherry red cocktails ready. Also have a few other varieties of seeds that I haven't had the time or space to start yet- Garden Peach, Tigerella, Broad Ripple Yellow Currant & Golden Sunrise.

Thanks Andrew I'll keep that in mind. I have quite a few planted in the greenhouse, if these don't work out I would love to support you over the green shed. I have the heirloom mix, cherry mix and san marzanos from happy Valley. I wasn't able to get the super sweet 100 like James Prigioni recommends, I'd be all over that haha
