Growing Organic Tomatoes Tip | AERO correction | Sound Problems

Kathi O'Leary Garlic Field

Correction to Interview with Naomi from Moxie Farms about AERO Expo interview this year. Sound problems and finally, while listening to Kathi’s replay I heard her share this great tomato growing tip and I know someone in the Organic Gardener Podcast Facebook Community just asked a with question about this the other day! Someone who just moved to Montana or a colder climate… I had forgotten about this tip:

“Another tip from a Mennonite farmer out of Bonner’s Ferry that has to do with tomatoes, in this climate it’s challenging to get ripe tomatoes on the vine, but if you stop watering in August it kind of forces the tomatoes to. Would cut back a little, and then by mid August pretty much stop.”
