    I hate to gloat but I will anyway!!! [​IMG] Here on the Gulf Coast we can grow tomatoes is the winter...if you want to call what we get winter. It very rarely freezes here but we have very poor soil so I do hay bale gardening. I works very well!!

    These are my tomatoes...I cut stakes out of the woods but the plants are way too heavy for the stakes to hold them up so I just put some pine shavings on the ground and let them tip over.

    Awesome Betty, when I can retire (if ever) I will move further south to have an extended garden season.

    The weather here was also awful all summer, all it did was rain and be cold. These were picked green and did ripen. But over all, I hardly got any tomatoes. I wanted to can some but there was never enough.

    [​IMG] Your tomatos are making me nostalgic for three months ago when the last of mine were in... *sigh* I sometimes wonder why I live up here.

    Does haybale gardening mean you grow the crops rooted in hay instead of in soil?! Sure looks like it, but I have never heard of this, and why not? Can yout ell us more?

    Thaks!
