The time has come to start picking our tomato harvest! This is just a small portion of the amount of tomatoes we have in the ground here in Gardnerville, NV. We planted 75 varieties of tomatoes and today’s picking is only the current ripe tomatoes of ONLY 1/3 of the Full Circle Compost garden. We have already picked 400 lbs of tomatoes from the entire garden this growing season.
How many pounds of ripe tomatoes can you pick from only 1/3 of your tomato garden if you balance your soil and use Full Circle Compost?
71.5 lbs of ripe tomatoes just on one picking from 1/3 of our garden!!! Holy Tomato!!!!
Based on this one picking we should be picking 225 lbs of tomatoes from our garden today. After today we will have picked more than 600 lbs of tomatoes from our back yard garden!!
Tonight, September 20th, you can share in our harvest if you come by our booth at the Gardnerville, NV wine walk! We will be at Joyce’s Jewelry (here is the map) from 4:30 to 8 pm!

If you can not come by and you are in the Northern Nevada area and would like some tomatoes, please contact me and we can set up a tomato delivery!!
Big tomato harvest if you balance your soil! To get the result we did, you only have to understand a few things:
- Balance your soil with a humus based soil fertility program! All of these tomatoes were grown outside in native Nevada soil!!! This is possible if you know how to balance the nutrients that the tomatoes crave. Calcium and organic matter from a high quality humus based soil amendment.
- Water them correctly. Many people over water there tomatoes! Don’t do it!! We water our tomatoes when they need it. Since we have balanced our soil and fixed it correctly, we water less than anyone might think. Some of our tomato plants that are even bigger than 6 feet get water once every three days!!! Balanced soil that is high in nutrients that has the best water holding capacity possible. Ohhhhh yessss! And people say you can’t grow tomatoes in our area very well, Full Circle proves that wrong!
