This is my first garden and, I must say, my botany reputation up to this point has been less than stellar. These are my house plants.
I know, pitiful. I have even struggled keeping a hanging potted plant on my porch. It's not rocket science, people! All you have to do is water potted plants. It's pure laziness on my part.
So when I decided to plant a garden, I was determined not to fail. I started all the tomato plants from seed! That's what impresses me the most. It also helped me save A LOT of money by not buying tomato plants. I have about $2.75 in tomatoes. The garden soil was the most expensive part. And that must be why my plants are doing so well. Yesterday, I finally got around to staking and tying the tomatoes. I waited a tad long to do it as some of the plants were already growing on the ground. I broke a few trying to force them into an upright position.
