Check Out Our Grape Tomato Plants!

We can't believe how tall our grape tomatoes plants have grown! I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but these plants are taller than Elliott (and he's 5'11"). They are COVERED with green tomatoes that we can't wait to eat! They are planted in an earth box (thanks, G & G!), and they are about 2 feet taller than our traditionally planted tomatoes. We're definitely planting EVERYTHING in earth boxes next year! O loves to help pour the water in the earth box spout.

O and Ell love to bounce on the joggling board on our deck. I think this may be my new favorite picture of the 2 of them!


  1. That is a good-looking crop of tomatoes. But, it leaves me wondering.........what is an earth box?

  2. Oops! Sorry, Laura. I should have posted a link. There's a link to the earth box site now. Check it out if you get a chance.

  3. My goodness! Where do you guys live with plantslike that?
