One Year in a Small Tomato Garden

May 25, 2011

Last year, I followed master gardener Lee Reich's advice for creating a weed-free, dig-free garden and since I am a photographer I documented the process through the year. Click through to see photos of a scrappy piece of lawn transform into a lush tomato-producing garden. Since I am part of a great CSA in my area, all I wanted to grow on my own were San Marzano heirloom sauce tomatoes. They were so delicious I ate them all in fresh sauces and didn't can any.


Thankyou for sharing the pictures. Geoff Lawton demonstrated a similar garden process in his video, "Soils". I enjoyed seeing your example of how it's done.
