|Way Back Garden 42 tomato plants|
This is the way back garden, because it was "way back" of the house, it's really not that far from the house tho. Some pick and shovel work and I planted 42 tomato plants, they seem to all be doing well.
Since I had to move in with mom my old chicken pens are empty. Well now they are full of tomato plants! Gives a whole new meaning to tomato cage doesn't it? I have gotten 86 plants in the ground, with 40-50 more in pots waiting to be planted. I have 12 plants in permanent pots at mom's house. Why so many? I sell eggs and veggies at our farmer's market from June through September. For the past 2 years there have been almost no tomatoes from any vendor because we have all had a horrible problem with viruses and wilts. So I just decided to plant lots of different kinds and see what happens.

You know nasturtiums are edible, right? Blossoms, leaves and seedpods have a spicy flavor reminiscent of watercress to which they are related.

And in an exciting development we have zucchini blossoms at about the time of year I am usually just planting seeds!
