Today was cool and a bit drizzly so I worked on our vegetable garden. Lee softened the ground and I weeded. The last few years we have tried to have a garden but the plants died from neglect. But this year we are determined to have fresh vegetables! So far we have a space cleared about 4 feet by 8 feet and 13 tomato planted. We have had a warm spring so we took our chances and started the garden two weeks ago. Lee went to the hardware store and came home with the last batch of tomato plants, some cherry tomatoes. So we need to clear some more space for another 12 plants. Will 25 tomato plants be enough? I also planted several hanging baskets of herbs. The basil plants do very well in a basket and it confuses the snails. Then I planted catnip plants and hung them on a tree, that confuses cats. Hopefully tomorrow will be a nice day to work outside.
