One of my goals with this garden has been to grow and preserve my own tomatoes. It's been slow work trying to figure out how many plants I need to get the harvest I want. It didn't help that the first year I had tomatoes in the garden was the year of the Awful Tomato Blight, making it difficult to separate my mistakes from other problems. Last year I came to the conclusion that I just needed a bigger garden. Yesterday we had a rare combination of warm weather, and my son having a half-day while my daughter did not, so I had extra help rearranging the garden fence! The new fence arrangement will give me about three times the garden space!
One of my beds has morphed into a perennial herb plot. I cleared last years leaves away, and look what I found!
