Fall Tomatoes.

the two tomato plants from this spring are still strong and healthy, and i'm reasonably confident they'll survive august and be productive come fall.

there are also several volunteer tomato plants that have sprouted in various places. yesterday i put pine needles around the best positioned / most promising candidates. today i noticed that one of the volunteers is about to bloom. got to scrounge up more stakes before the new plants get much larger.

By the way, have you heard of Lasagna Gardening? If so, what did you think of it?

I swear by the method.

jessa, you're welcome!

i have read a fair amount about lasagna gardening and i think it makes sense. i kinda-sorta do it here, but since we have the space, i mostly throw everything into the compost pile, then distribute as needed.
