How Does Your Garden Grow?

By Staff | Sep 10, 2015

HOW?DOES?YOUR?GARDEN?GROW? -- If you wonder how your tomato plants stack up, ask Joe Thompson for his secret. Thompson has a pair of 10-foot tall “Mighty-Mato” hybrid plants in his backyard that are continuing to reach for the sky. To show their height, Joe, who is 6-feet tall, holds a 4-foot yard stick that is still shorter than one of the plants. The plants are grafted and grownaturally to such heights. They can produce normal or cherry tomatoes, depending on the type of plant being grown. This is the second year Thompson has raised the skyscraping tomato plants. -- Dan Voigt photo
