    Default Composting tomatoes in the GH

    I stored some compost in a 55 gallon drum painted black.
    Helps it thaw sooner. I take 2 or 3 bucket into the GH, let it
    warm up & add a few inches at a time as they grow.
    Big "done" compost bin is still frozen. Last falls garden compost bin is thawed but
    it needs to "cook" a few more months. When I get some fresh green grass clippings
    I'll empty it, then mix in the fresh grass as I put it all back in to get it cooking.
    Will be "done compost" around August.

    You have some great looking tomatoes there. Mine are flowering now, but I'm in south Ga! Yours only look 2-3 weeks behind mine.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Last week my 17 yr old grandson helped me to pour an 8x10 cement pad for a green house...
    Using Mudbuddy's pictures for guidelines, I hope to get something nailed together this next week
    today I noticed the 4 Ed Hume Siletz tomatoes all have buds and one plant has a blossom already...
    the Denali Early Tanana starts are way behind...

    PERFECT
    Ripe tomatoes soon, well by late July - August anyway.
    Sounds like the GH will be ready soon to plant the tomatoes.
    PM me if you want to stop by & look mine over & do a few things better than I did.
