I believe it was Guy Clark who sang "There's only two things that money can't buy, and that's true love and home grown tomatoes". Well, sorry Guy, we're making a liar out of you. The tomatoes are rolling in. Big beautiful tomatoes, little tiny tomatoes. All sizes and shapes. So, money will in fact buy you home grown tomatoes. From our home. It will probably also buy you true love somewhere, but we can't make any promises.
Last weekend saw the till repaired (good job Trogg) and more seeds in - carrots, beets, radishes, lettuce, chard, spinach, and peas. Fingers crossed they grow up big and strong. We covered the newly sown seeds with some landscape fabric to protect them from birds, rain, and dogs. The fabric is keeping them warm (as if the weather wasn't enough) and moist and we've already got sprouts. Needless to say, its pretty rewarding to see that happen so quickly.
That's about all we have this week. Its hot. The mosquitoes are TERRIBLE. But vegetables love this weather and everything is going strong. Thanks, as always, for the support.
