Today we tilled up the area of the beds in which we would be planting tomatoes.  This fluffs the soil and mixes some of the nutrients in the soil to ensure that our tomato plants will grow healthy and will survive the transplant.  When transplanting the tomatoes, we bury them deep at a 45 degree angle to the ground.  We want to ensure that the max amount of stem is in the ground (which will later become part of the root system of the tomato plant) and that only the top few leaves are above the ground.  We managed to plant about 18 tomato plants today and will continue to plant more on Friday.  Furthermore, the carrots are ready to be harvested soon.   We will probably harvest these next week along with another bed of lettuce.
