The peas we planted a few weeks ago are coming up great despite snow and cold. The sight of these baby plants sure makes me happy.
Last year I lost almost all of my tomato plants to blight. How frustrating!!! So this year I'm trying containers for my tomatoes.
I even had some helpers! Yahoo's preschool class came and planted the tomatoes with me yesterday. They sure enjoyed looking at my garden.
The preschool teacher told me one year the best tomato crop her brother-in-law had was after they were pelted with hail. I've heard I should beat my tomato plants for a better crop, has anyone done this??? The idea makes me nervous. I've had such a hard time growing tomatoes the last few years I'm afraid I'll kill them if I could beat them.
We also have carrots, onions, beans, cucumbers, spinach and I've planted blue corn!!! I'm kind of excited about that one too.
Do you have your garden planted yet? Are you trying anything new this year?
