THIS IS NOT MY GARDEN.
They have squash starting! And the tomato plants are spangled with flowers. Definitely progress, although I am still worrried that the squash plants will start crowding out the tomatoes.
This garden inspired me to pick up a couple of tomato plants. I have never had good luck with them, partly because of a largely shady back yard. The plants I got were on sale (as in “Priced to Move Before They Die”) from a local nursery. I paid $4.50 for three. One sits in a new ceramic pot in the front yard, that gets more light, one is in a pot on the bak deck and one is in the ground next to the potatoes. They all look pretty pathetic. I had to resist the temptation to buy a lush, dark-leaved plant at the farmers’ market yesterday. I’ll give the three burnt and half-dead plants a try. If I get a tomato, it will be a triumph, and if I don’t, well, they were cheap.
