Like Real Estate, the biggest part of gardening is location, location, location…A fact I am re-learning this year.
The Sad Tomato Seedlings are having varying degrees of success. These, in EarthBox planters on the east-facing deck are growing well. They’re sturdy and full of blooms. Watering them daily is helping, I’m sure. (That’s one chore I have no trouble getting Angel to participate in!)
The ones in the garden are about half that size, and the first buds appeared over the weekend.
Oh. The tomato is inside the black ring thingy. Free Friday this week, so the weeds will get evicted then. And they’re not all weeds. Some of them are basils…
Yeah. Mostly weeds.
These two went North to my daughter’s house. Same batch of seedlings. Same rough early treatment. They bloomed a week before the ones on my deck.
Looking good, Butterfly!
Yes, Angel. You too.
But THIS is the one that takes the cake. The one that shouldn’t even be here…
This one came up volunteer in the asparagus bed. Variety yet to be determined. It’s bigger than all of the ones that were so carefully started under the lights in March…
It’s just a very odd year. But I know where I ought to put a new bed of tomatoes!
We’re going to have tomatoes. Lots of them, with any luck.
That’s the Most Important Thing.
