More Gardening

IMG_3502So, this year I had three seedlings (Better Boys) all thrive (and by thrive, I mean, not die). I bought three tomato plants (one better boy, a brandywine, and one other varietal) from the farmer's market which had the benefit of a better upbringing and are already beginning to fruit.

Gardening, take 1

SeedlingsI planted seeds for the garden this year. It'll be a scaled-back version of the 2 previous years of gardens, as I lack the huge yard of the NutHouse. I intend to grow 2 varieties (or more) of tomatoes, cucumber, and a mix of hot peppers, as well as some herbs (basil, chives, and mint). I might try sunchokes from the some shriveled roots from last year just to see if they come up.
