The Adventures of a Would-Be Gardener II

Wow - it's been a long time since my 1st installment!!

Nothing much new to report other than, they're still alive!!  Well, most of the plants any how.  I've pretty much given up on the potatoes.  I'm still giving one of them another week or so....

Here's a picture I took a few weeks back.  Looking pretty good.  They've grown like weeds good little veggies since then.  My, they grow up so fast!

Today I had to do something that I've been dreading.  I had to move two of my tomato plants due to crowding.  The tomato plants were all doing so well, but they were too crowded and I knew that it was going to become a problem.  So today I moved two plants 'open' areas of the garden. (ie. I tossed one of the potatoes that didn't have any sprouts coming out of it and then I moved a sickly looking bean).

I dug generous holes and then put some good potting soil in.  I then carefully dug up to tomato plants - still afraid that I could have damaged them in some way.  Next I planted them in their new spots and gave them some water.  Now I'm just praying that they'll take to their new neighborhoods!!  I'll be so sad if they don't, but I had to do something.

I'm now a little disappointed that my garden is no longer symetrical and pretty.  It's a little mish-moshed looking.  who cares as long as I get some veggies, right?

Well that's it for this installment.  I hope to report soon about some happy tomato plants that entered the relocation program!

Happy gardening!!!
