I am undaunted.
So, come April of this year, I took my shovel to the clay soil, dug up the ground and planted my little fledgling plants. And lo and behold... would you believe it!? They are still alive, and dare I say, some may even be thriving! Here are my first fruits!
So, as long as I can keep Sassy A and Mr. Jenkins from picking the unripe veggies (see picture below of what would have been my first ripe heirloom tomato), I hope to enjoy and share more garden delights in the coming months.
