The urban garden gets eaten
Our last visit to the garden was a week ago, but it was finally time. In the intervening week, there had been a very warm 4th of July weekend. That heat was just what we need to kick it over the edge. All the waiting, all the patience, it was all for this moment. It is ready for harvesting!
The urban garden project
started back in February, so this felt like a long time coming. The truth is, of course, the first tomato wasn’t planted until April. Even still, we’d been through a lot, even a complete overhaul of the tomato department in early June. It’s been a lot of work and I was ready to eat it!
The irony was that it wasn’t that hard. I put the tomato plants in the dirt. Eventually I put them in a bigger pile of dirt. I watered the tomato plants almost every day, based on a soil sensor I bought. Then I waited. I timed the plants a bit, but that was mostly the larger tomato shrubbery; the Bush Goliath (Which Home Depot advertised as being perfect for the limited space garden) required almost no “cleaning up”. After simplifying it, one wonders how I failed in the past.
Next time, find out if we’re still enjoying our tomato crop.
