I planted garden today
I've had people ask why I plant so many tomatoes: it's because of blight, plain and simple. I know for sure blight will rear its ugly head every year, and I plant a lot of tomatoes hoping I will get enough of them canned before blight shows up. Sometimes I do, sometimes not.
My gardens are mediocre at best. Once crabgrass shows up, there is never another weed-free moment. I am not ambitious enough to keep up with the weeds and bugs. Nevertheless, we are still eating tomatoes, peppers, peaches, strawberries, and sweet potatoes from last years garden. Not bad, for a mediocre garden.
Speaking of my lack of ambition, I will be very surprised if the seeds in the above tray ever make it outside. I have a tendency to get bored with projects like this and stop watering them.
We shall see.
Oh, by the way: Cliff is over whatever plague that put him out of commission for a couple of days.
