The single truss tomato bed has gone mental!
I haven't kept on top of them as much as I should have but they're growing well, a little too well really. I had a massive hack at them tonight and found all the tomatoes hidden under the leaves.
The plastic is working well though as there isn't a single weed in the whole bed.
I can already see improvements for this method of growing. firstly only grow them two wide per bed, on a 30" bed I think this would be about right. These are about five deep and it just gets a bit tangled. I just got greedy on how many I put in!
Also I think that rather than just shoving in my left over plants I should grow some specially for this type of growing. I'm thinking that maybe growing determinate type (bush) rather than the indeterminate (cordon type), that way when they get pruned they might not put quite so much energy into trying to regrow.
Hopefully they're be plenty ripening in the next few weeks.
Anyone else grown in this way?
