After a green manure, we start to plant the tomatoes for the new year.
Tomatoes are transplanted each year strictly by hand and carefully. The annual crop duration is due to the fact that the plant can’t overcome the cold of winter. Every year therefore, exhausted its fruit is eliminated and planted again the following year.
