Thanks a ton for the suggestions. I think I might write about this on my own blog.

Sam Vaine

This was my first year planting using SIPs, have seen varied results. I planted 6 heir loom tomato plants in separate 5 gallon buckets. The first round of tomatoes took about 10 weeks to ripen. After that, blooms continued, however the fruit matured at half the size of the first bunch - a little bigger than a cherry tomato. Any suggestions as why this is the case? I live in the Southeast, the tomatoes get about 8-9 hours of full sun, and the containers were checked daily to ensure there was water in the reservoir.

Any help would be appreciated!
