a new journal to visit - Rambling Woolysheep

Please stop by Kristi's journal and say hello.

Kristi has an interesting blog.  She writes about "Urban Homesteading".  She does not live on a large piece of land, yet finds ways to manage this way of living.  Please click on the links in her sidebar to find out what Urban Homesteading is.

Currently, Kristi is raising chickens for eggs and is growing tomato plants.  She has encouraged me to grow tomato plants, even if it means growing them in flower pots on my patio (as my landlord may not allow me to grow them in the ground on the property).  I  just may take her up on this suggestion, as tomatos are very expensive!

Here is her journal:

Let's stop by and make her feel welcome in JLand!

    I grow tomatoes in containers too on my patio and they don't really need much care.  It's been fun to have fresh tomatoes!

    Tomatoe plants also do well in containers and hanging baskets. There is something new called a Topsy Turvey Tomato planter.  Nothing better then HOMEGROWN TOMATOS!
    Will run on over :)

    Oh, I would love to go over there and visit her.  Last year I had to grow all my tomatoes in containers and had 32 pots full.  I also raised cucumbers, and bell pepper that way too.  (We had a septice tank problem and didn't want to use our yard for that)
    Thank you for the link.  I can think of several people who will enjoy meeting Kristi.

  7. This sounds wonderful, urban homesteading is one of my interests.
    Thanks Krissy!

  8. Your landlord needs Hank Williams Jr. to give him an attitude adjustment. Hi to Mr Michael

    Sounds fascinating, Krissy. Thanks!  I'm going to pop over.  Love ya, Chris

  10. Will stop by, Krissy. Tomatoes-on-the-vine in the winter are particularly expensive!Hope you get to grow some. Hugs to you and John, Deb ;-)

  11. I will pop over and say hello. Love Pam xx

  12. Fresh Tomatoes are the best!!! Can't wait to get our garden going.

    Hugs Rosemary

  13. Krissy here's one for you to try.  If you plan to put out some tomatoes in containers on your patio.....this has been known to work, get a bag of potting soil, lay the bag down, cut a slit in the center of it and put your tomato plant in it to grow.  Just water it in the bag cut seem and enjoy.  Saw this years ago on the Regis and Kathy Show and was amazed how well they grew right out of the bag. Also had a neighbor in GA who grew them, plus green beans in large flower pots and they got a new crop of tomatoes and beans.  If you have a private patio with some ground area available, can't imagine your landlord not allowing you to plant some veggies, I'd ask him.  You and John have a great day.  Arlene (AJ)

  14. Thanks for stopping by my journal.  We always grow tomatoes in ourgarden every year.  One plant seems to give so many, you don't need many plants, lol.

  15. I am taking a peek now Kristina.  I love any kind of gardening.

    Jeanie xx
