Bed 4: Warm Season
Tomatoes (1): Three tomatoes grown in cages give you an opportunity to try a few different varieties. Choose three options for variety
in color and timing so you’ll have tomato-y goodness all season long. Determinate varieties are recommended for these smaller
tomato cages, but if you prefer indeterminate tomatoes, use two large cages that are 3 feet in diameter and 6 feet tall. They’ll
need to be made of sturdy wire fencing with openings large enough for you to reach through. Be sure to anchor these larger
cages by tying them to rebar hammered into the soil.
Watermelon (2): Unlike the bush type, vine watermelon needs room to ramble. Plant just one, and train the vines to cover the bed rather than the path around the bed. Substitute pumpkins, winter squash, or melons.
