After two years of working a backyard plot where an RV had been parked for 25 years, I think… I HOPE…. I have finally conditioned the soil and coaxed it back to life.
In March, I planted out these three tomatoes plants and sowed some zucchini, cucumber, and cantaloup seeds.
Two months later I have gargantuan tomatoes bushes running amok in the yard, threatening to overcome the zukes and cukes. So my dad and I put stakes in the ground this morning and tied the vines up.
The Early Girl bush is heavy with green fruit. Yes, I do have a basil plant growing nearby. We are going to feast well in a few weeks!
