I thought tearing out tomato plants would be the saddest thing ever... but I'm completely over it now.
Especially when they are looking like this:
Meanwhile I'll focus on the flowers blooming instead of the dying tomatoes...
Here it is mid September on the most planted stone, growing in nicely in 6 weeks.
Ultimately this section cost $8 using 1/4th in the corners and 1/8th around the edges. But by spreading it myself that would have only cost $2.
Now I'm about $50 in to this, but being we will end up with more than 80 stones with 4 corners and 4 edges each, the time it would take to grow (years) or buy that many plants($160 + time) would be alot of no fun. This way by next summer we should be most the way grown. Plus now I have several flats I can learn to start seeds in!
