Moving the tomato freed up about 38" x 38" of floor space where it sat just inside the door. I kept brushing against it going in and out which can bruise the leaves.
Squeezing into a space 27"x18" through a tiny gap between the ends of the shelving without breaking a limb was a real trick.
Limb ends rest against the greenhouse walls. Come cold weather, bubble wrap will protect it from cold if I can work the plastic down the walls.
Yesterday Alternanthera filled this space.
Two small tomatoes hung on through the move.
I give it a gallon of water when it was in place.
While it isn't the best location for a tomato, it is the best use of space in a small building. Indeterminate tomatoes tend to vine upward, so the roof's the limit. Right now it's only 5' tall. Lanky limbs can be secured to the posts of the shelf unit beside it. I'll be able to reach the shelves without an obstacle.
Tomatoes in the winter of 2012-2013 were successful for
fruit but so much in the way. Every year I rearrange.
There's never a perfect layout.
I looked back to see when I brought in other plants last year. October 10, 2013 I was bringing in the tenderest.
The tiniest signs of fall are here despite high temperatures. Virginia Creeper and Sassafras are dropping red leaves. There was fog this morning.
