Oh! Remember those peas and cold weather crops we planted in the warm of St. Patrick's Day for good luck? Here's that bed:
We put red plastic mulch down on our tomato bed this year as an experiment. It's supposed to trap moisture in the soil, produce more fruit because of the spectrum of light it reflects on the plants, and help control weeds. We shall see. We are also trying an experiment I saw on a blog that I follow. We planted the tomatoes with a banana peel at the bottom of the hole and a sprinkle of powdered milk. I felt really weird doing it, but if it will make my plants happier, I'm willing to give them all the help they can get.
That's it for now. How's your garden growing?
