Do you know where you are?
You’re in the jungle, baby!
Not really. You’re just in my garden.
And believe it or not, those are not weeds! Everything is growing like gangbusters in there!
I have learned a very valuable lesson with my first garden: Don’t plant things too close together!
My tomato plants said to plant them 18 – 24″ apart. And I did that. I even got out a tape measure to make sure. But my tomatoes are wild! They’re bursting out everywhere. There’s not enough room in there. I wonder if it’s because we filled the box with compost rather than just planting them in the ground? Is there any credibility to that idea? Anyone?
We’ve enjoyed lots of cucumbers and herbs already. The tomatoes and peppers won’t be long.
So, next year I’m gonna have Brian build me another box. One just for tomatoes and one for the few other things that I want. And I think I’ll just do my herbs in pots.
And here are some pictures of my flowers lest they begin to feel that I don’t love them as much as I love the veggies.
And last but not least, Happy Father’s Day to my daddy and my hubby. You are both wonderful fathers and I love you so much!
