It is with a heavy heart I have been transitioning the vegetable garden into a rose garden. Well, maybe that's a bit dramatic because I have been having fun searching for roses and clematis (who wouldn't?) but the other day at the nursery I wandered into the vegetable section where the isles were filled with eager gardeners, mostly new gardeners, based on their questions, and I was a bit sad to not be able to join in the frenzy of peppers and eggplants. Then I reminded myself that I was still going to grow anything I wanted, just not in the same fashion. So now I have reverted to growing the tomatoes (I did not get a single one last year due to the cool weather and foraging animals including my own dogs) among the perennials. This is where the first tomato lives (see the obelisk?), hopefully tucked away and in disguise from hungry predictors. Now if only we get some warm weather this summer!
