» How does your garden grow?
Mine, not so good.
I have a decent sized yard and while I would love to have a garden, I simply do not have (and will not make) time for one. Which is probably why these plum tomato plants are committing suicide. Last year I watched my neighbor grow a zillion tomatoes in buckets with almost zero effort.
So when the “Italian Tomato Fairy” dropped these seedlings off at my studio about two weeks ago, I thought, “No problem! I like tomatoes and I’m sure I can handle the bucket thing.”
I was told to place the plants in direct sun, (check) and to make sure they are watered daily. (check) I also gave them some plant food but what you see in the top photo is their current state. (One is pretty much dead.) I don’t know what I did wrong, but I suspect that the torrential downpours we’ve been having lately have been too much for them.
How is your garden coming along?
(PS: Did I ever tell you that my first inspiration for journaling was when I happened to be watching one of the shopping networks sell a gardening journal? I thought to myself, “How silly” but the next day was inspired to buy a journal and start writing. Funny the way things work…)
