Ace is having a sale on tomato plants. They are 88 cents and the cages are 77 cents so I figured it was now or never to get in a garden this year. The past couple of years I haven't had any garden, even though we put in this raised bed about 3 years ago. I just couldn't get out there to water it and the first time I planted, everything died. Now that I have a sprinkler system for my new lawn, it also waters the garden.
I put in 8 tomato plants (one in the back flower bed) and 2 zucchini. I put some egg shells around the zucchini because I have dogs and can't use snail bait. This is Mandy, my 13 year old boxer/lab who had to check out the egg shells and sample them. Between the dog and the snails, I'm doubtful I will get any zucchini, but I can hope. I will either get too many or not enough. Can never get just the right amount of zucchini.
