BLOG: You Say Tomato

I wish these were our tomatoes. Our garden this year didn’t do too well, especially on the tomato front. It was our first summer in our new place and our garden patch was a mystery. Just a rectangular dirt patch in the backyard. We thought it would be a perfect spot for gardening. But, we think the previous owners/tenants never used it for such. Since the soil wasn’t used to growing things other than weeds, most of the starters and seeds we planted yielded very little. The tomatoes were especially sad. Next year, we’ll fertilize more. Or I might building planter boxes and fill them with really good soil.
