Bathtub Tomatoes

bathtub tomatoes and hens 033

These bathtub tomatoes were inspired by my  exploratory research paper  from English 101from this spring quarter.  Three plants are in our old corner bathtub. I have layers of straw, 1 big bag of Miracle grow potting soil, coffee grounds, and  chicken manure in the tub.  I’ll keep you posted on how they grow.

  2. I picked a few tomatoes today, but there are not as many as I expected for late July. The dirt in the tub really packs down and I should have put more in from the start, but they are doing ok.

  3. They got blight as the season wore on. This year, I’m filling the bottom with compost and filling the tub with lettuce. The roots for lettuce don’t go down as deep, I’ll try lettuce, parsley, sale stuff.
