We re-planted our tomatoes tonight. D. wasn’t satisfied with how the first tomatoes looked. They took a beating because it took a week for us to plant them after we bought them and then they got hammered by rain.
D. worries over his tomatoes. I’m serious. I call him the “tomato-whisperer.” We stood over tomato plants for at least 30 minutes this week discussing their “state” and whether they would recover. This is serious business!
I felt terrible yanking plants out of the ground, but the growing season is short here, and we can’t afford to nurse sickly tomatoes all season. So, new tomatoes, and a few new basil plants too. It’s going to be a good season!
Pictured here are our crop of pepper plants, from spicy to bell, and back again. It’ll be fun to show this photo again in August when the peppers are growing and the squash in the back has completely taken over the ground. I’ll share photos of the beautiful tomatoes too.
