Being Thankful…With a Gardening Spin

Being Thankful…With a Gardening Spin 1280 720 Eco Garden Systems

Have you noticed that a lot of people seem angrier than usual? There does appear to be more angst in the world (or at least in our corner of it) than we remember ever being there in the past (okay, the Vietnam era was a bit angry as well). It is always amazing how appreciation for all we have gets over-run by desire or despair over what we don’t have. Being thankful falls by the wayside. It is our goal at Eco Garden Systems to embrace life through the shared purpose of gardening – and for that we are thankful.

Tomato #9

Tomato #9 1280 960 Eco Garden Systems

Did you know that you should prune stake tomatoes so only one main stalk is left? Prune by removing all suckers that are below the first fruiting cluster. This provides more energy for the plant to produce fruit. This is an especially important tip for beginning gardeners as not pruning can lead to disappointment in the amount of fruit grown. Let suckers that grow above the first fruiting cluster remain – but remove all but two leaves. This will provide shade to the fruit.
