I'm not a great gardener. I get better every year, but that's not saying much. I narrowed part of the problem down to the double whammy of our cabin vacation and school starting, which happen right together and take me out of commision for awhile. By the time I get back out to my garden, it looks like this:
A crazy overgrown mess, but it is producing a lot of tomatoes. It might be also producing other things, but the tomatoes are red, so I can find them. I picked over a dozen the other day. I'm going to try my hand at canning, we'll see how that goes. Thankfully Sarah posted a tutorial.
I had the idea to grow cucumbers in a tomato cage this year, to try and keep them contained. Marion smiled at me when I explained it. He was right, it didn't work. My one cucumber is growing all over the place, and mixing in with the tomatoes that are near it. I've never seen anything like this in anyone else's garden.
