There it is. My first attempt at gardening. I have recently been yearning to grow my own fruit and veggies, but an unfinished back yard and a fear of spending a lot of money to end up with nothing to show for it has kept me from trying out my green thumb. I have absolutely NO gardening experience. My mother-in-law was quite the plant lover and my husband inherited that love, but with small kids and pets, plants have not been a big part of our life. Until now!
A few weeks ago we planted 2 containers (the same ones the tomatoes are in) with vincas because Home Depot had them on sale and told us they are "heat hardy". When I saw that tomatoes were on sale over Memorial Day Weekend, I decided to toss aside all my doubts and just go for it!
So here they are -- two "patio tomato" plants. I am afraid that we are growing these WAY too late in the season and that the heat of July will kill them. I was told that our seasons are short so we have to plant 90 days or less plants. These are 70 day -- so here's hoping they survive!
