You may remember a few months ago I built four very large vegetable planters in our back yard. I haven't posted any progress shots for two reasons. First, my original organic tomato plants were a total bust so I ended up tearing them out and replanting them. I also had problems with the watering restrictions (in case you haven't heard there is a water shortage in California) and two days of watering just wasn't enough. So my corn, pumpkin and cucumbers didn't survive. The good news is I now have at least 40 ripe tomatoes and as soon as I have a spare moment I think it will be time for homemade tomato sauce! I also have a ton of lettuce and lots of peppers. But that's ok. Healthy eating it is!
I am about to rip out the dead corn and plant some fall vegetables. That's what I love about Southern California. I get a second chance! Of course I need to actually be at home to do that. Details ...
In case you are wondering about the title of this post, it is true that I often garden in the dark. In fact my mom called a few years back (at about 8:30pm and it was dark) and when I told her I was gardening she told me I had to name my book "Gardening in the Dark". Some day I just might do that ... cuz that so sums up my life right now!
For the record, I am not complaining.
