I have a bunch of tomato plants and 4 sweet pepper plants. Also have a strip of kale and lettuce. First time I have planned a tiny garden in 3 or 4 years, since before I was on the max dose of Invega that made me apathetic to everything
I’m very excited! The last time I grew tomatoes, I had tons. More than we could use and the was with just 3 plants. Now i have about 10 or 12 ready to plant.
6 are “goliath” and beefsteak varieties and 4 are cherry types. So Ill have tomatoes for sandwich making and salads, plus enough for my kids to snack on when they’re outside.
The kale is especially for my youngest son. He loves the stuff. I wish od plantes onions and cukes. No cucumber plants at the store, though and I didn’t have any starters to plant seeds in this year.
Drove my mom to the nursery we bought purple and green lettuce. 4 plants each. Then we bought sugar snap peas. Cucumber. And yellow watermelon??? They had it so I was like wow u must get that. My sister grew my mom sone tomato and stuff from seed to put in her garden. Nah I don’t plant. I’d ■■■■ it up. But am excited to grow some vegetables even I like.
I had a garden, but the soil wasn’t good. I got new soil but I was still having problems with disease etc. I gave up. I loved fresh tomatoes and green beans. The peppers i grew kept getting eaten by rabbits, etc. it was just a failure all around. I gave up
We used to have tomatoes, strawberries and mint but after every -35c winter the tomatoes and strawberties don’t grow back in the summer. We need to replant new ones. Mint is no problem, its easy to grow.
Tomatoes are annuals when not planted in a tropical climate. Strawberries will come back next spring if adequately insulated. We shovel peat moss and compost over ours in the fall, rake it off the following year. The tomatoes out front have been through three moves and are looking healthy. My wife can definitely garden.
