I have a friend who is crazy like me and works out every morning at 5:00 A.M. This friend also has explosive vegetable gardens every year. He asked me last winter if I'd like a few tomato transplants. I told him I have a black thumb and would probably kill it. He reassured me I'd be just fine.
So I thought, what the hey - let's try it.
A disclaimer. I know nothing about gardening. Nothing.
So between myself and the troops, a lot of advice and me actually talking to the plants (no joke), our backyard exploded!
It was so super super cool and amazing and mind-blowing!! (it actually worked!)
Seriously. Wow!! Like...this was my favorite part of the summer.
And the best part - asking my children every evening while making dinner, "Hey honey, can you go pick me a few [insert veggie or fruit] from the garden?"
Why in the world did I wait so long to start this??
We have big plans for next year. BIG. Like potatoes. And watermelons. And squash. And hopefully raspberry transplants from Lea. And more tomatoes...
