I was surprised to hear that nurseries are running out of tomato plants!? Personally I never had good luck planting them, but I guess with shopping dilemmas and food & vegetables some what been scarce, for some people growing their own food made sense. Or is this just a beginning of a trend?
Creating a garden, is not an easy task. It is extremely time consuming, and expensive. To create a garden and keep it beautiful, and healthy is a daily chore, but a chore that is delightful, gratifying, and heavenly.
I have had vegetable gardens, herb gardens, and flower gardens. Had to make peace with squirrels, bunnies, birds, and yes even lizards, that enjoyed leaving bit marks on tomatoes that were half ripped.
In mid summer when plants are well established and are in full bloom is when I sit back and enjoy as they say the fruit of my labor. But for now, I put on my gardening gloves and start my mornings with pulling weeds, watering and filling the holes that squirrels have left behind.
Gardens don’t just add color to our yards, or food to our tables, they make our homes a haven for birds, bees, and butterflies. They come to our gardens to find food and they pollinate our trees and flowers.
If you are a first time gardener, you will be a gardener for life.
