Gardening 101

As usual we are gardening this year, and as usual l am a bit behind schedule... sort of. I have plenty of seed starters going in the greenhouse, but until recently our plot was in need of some attention. R has the other plots cleaned up and cranking out green, but I still needed to get on the tomato plot. It didn't help that it was so hot last week, but at some point you just have to deal with it, or at least time it properly to minimize suffering.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and did it. It took a couple of hours, and it was hot, but sometimes the perfect time just doesn't come around. Plus, like all things that hang over your head, it feels immeasurably good to get them done. Most of the weeds in the garden were fairly big which ironically made them easier to remove. The plot looks a lot better and now I can sit back and wait for the tomato plants to grow a little more in the greenhouse with the hopes that they'll hit the ground running, literally and figuratively. I must have about 100 plants and am not sure what to do with all of them.

Then again, just plant them, right?

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Cuba Gardening for the pic.
