Baby vegetables + spring garden = mega cute
Looks like this Clemson Spineless okra is going to kick out the jams!
I love how clusters of green Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes look. (Those are our first Early Girls ripening in the background!)
I've taken to using pruned tree branches as plant stakes; they're the refuse from Jay's post-winter tree pruning projects.
He just throws them behind our azalea bushes until I'm ready to pull them out, strip their leaves, cut the branches down a bit, stick them in the dirt and gingerly thread the tomato vines onto them.
I have to keep the hands-on gardening stuff to a minimum, owing to my cantankerous repetitive strain injury issues, but the little bit I *can* pull off is so much fun. (That's why cultivating the soil with organic matter has been such a gradual and lengthy process!)
Will I feel so blithe and delighted about gardening once the summer heat and humidity set in?
