A few days ago one of my cousins asked me to share some gardening failures. There are plenty and I started thinking about where to start with that post. Then Michael came in from the garden a few hours later and asked “what’s that growing in the basil and tomato plants?” I went out there to look and found this beautiful sight:
Seriously? what is that popping up all over the bed? I think it’s probably some grass from bunny food that had made it’s way into the rabbit compost that I added before I planted these last weekend. I had to laugh because before I could even take a photo Michael had started digging it all out. I’m going to add some straw mulch today after another round of weeding. That may help to keep the weeds down, moisture in and wilt away from the tomato plants.
It happens, it’s okay, hang in there! It can be a long road but it’s so worth it in a month or so when we’re enjoying fresh tomatoes and pesto. There’s nothing else like that! Have a wonderful day! Enjoy everything!
Michele! I am loving your blog! It is PW East Coast! Keep up the posts. I will be following you along with my 1 tomato plant, 1 basil plant and 3 cucumber plants.
Thank you so much Karen!! I missed seeing you at that book signing ;)! Anything you grow is good as long as it’s fun!
