So on the very first mow of the season with the yard half done, a horrible sound emerged from it's lower front section and it stopped working immediately. Once again, we were lucky to return it to it's resting place in the garage until further notice. Geez, what an exasperating pain in the ass that mower is, but I digress.
Our garden is now officially on it's way to glory with a number of herbs, cucumbers, bell pepper, jalapeno and of course, tomatoes in 10 varieties. I'm making a practice of lighting candles every night until I see proof that something is thriving out there.
We won't be composting this year. We decided that the delicate balance of wet and dry materials, proper container, time and attention composting requires is just too much. About the time maggots showed up on the outside of the container last year, we decided we're not cut out for that particular endeavor. If we ever try it again, we absolutely must have a proper composting system to work with. Winging it with compost is just not a good idea.
Next post, I'll share with you more photos of tomato plants in progress along with variety names, etc. Until then my friends, don't forget to leave a comment here. By now you know how grumpy it makes me when I don't get any. More later.
PLEASE FORGIVE THE SCREWY SPACING ON THIS AND FUTURE POSTS. IT'S A PROBLEM THAT NO ONE SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO FIX, AND IT'S MAKING ME CRAZY!
