Last Sunday was a gorgeous day. It was warm and sunny and made Tom and me feel like gardening. So we did.
I finally got around to taking pictures of the garden after we put in new plants. The only place we get enough sun to grow tomatoes and fruit, is in our drive way. It’s covered in asphalt, so we garden in Earthboxes and buckets. We put in two new Earthboxes, one for strawberries and another for herbs, and 11 tomato plants.
Here are the herbs.
Tom is very good at growing tomatoes. He gives them lovely food, good soil, and the correct amount of water. Most of the time, his plants get 6 or 7 FEET tall. (It’s California.) This year, he’s getting super duper tall and strong tomato cages that will support these hummers. Thank goodness. The el-cheapo cages he used in the past were tippy.
When we were done, we got to relax in our cool and pleasant back garden. I can’t wait until April, when the whole place blazes with roses and clematis!
