We went to Market Day at the Cylburn Arboretum with the always delightful Danielle and her equally delightful boyfriend today. We braved the mud and rain and ended up with about 6 different varieties of tomato plants. I'm most excited about the Yellow Pear and the Rugter varieties, which I've only had from the farmer's market before. I tried to get the tallest of the plants available so I am hoping for an early harvest and sturdy plants. One of the plants even has a tiny tomato on it so that's a pretty good sign! Matt's going to get them in the ground tomorrow. I don't think we're going to grow much more in the way of vegetables this year (we also bought a chile which is described as chocolate brown and smoky tasting) because we only had okay luck with the zucchini and eggplant last year and we've already planted 3 blueberry bushes this year. We already have a plum tree, plans for a possible fig tree and a blackberry bush that had quadrupled in size from last year to concentrate on.
What's going in your garden this year?
