This year I’m not starting a garden. It’s too much work weeding and preparing to plant. It’s a lot to maintain it. Last year’s garden didn’t grow so well (neither did the neighbour’s), all of the herbs died within the first month and I only got two tomatoes from four tomato plants. Or at least, that’s what I kept telling myself.
But, when my Aunt was in town the other week, she brought tomato plants with her. I couldn’t say no.
This year, I’m taking a different approach to gardening. I bought planters and fresh soil, then placed them in the garden. Each tomato plant (Yellow Cherry and Moonglow) and the basil have their own planter. The other herbs (rosemary, mint, cilantro, and chives) are two in each planter. The plants look healthier than last year already.
My brother is growing a Pink Ponderosa tomato plant. This is one of the ones that didn’t work out for me last year.
My herbs are still growing. The tomatoes haven’t blossomed yet. They’ll grow… I hope.
Any tips for a successful garden?
