who's getting excited about tomatoes?
Yep, getting excited. I started seeds today in peat pods, and spent sweaty time prepping the bed.
I do lasagna gardening, so a giant pile of weeds is becoming a mulched bed, as it does every year. It takes about six weeks for weeds to become dirt.
My DH was skeptical this year - the weeds were really high. But he saw what I did today and decided it will work.
It's worked every year before, and my soil has gone from three inches of black dirt and sand under that to 18 inches of black dirt before we hit sand.
As for the tomatoes I started today, I immediately lost track of which peat pod was which. But I know I started Arkansas Traveler, Sungold, Green Zebra and some other things.
I'll give some extras to my neighbor. But I'll probably plant way more tomatoes than we can actually eat.
I'm excited. I'm also prepping for arugula, broccoli, okra and mush melon. Maybe some squash. Certainly some radishes and basil squished between the tomato plants.
Check in if you're excited about tomato season!
