One day a tomato

Ah yes, my first vegetable garden since moving back to Missouri! I planted a couple tomatoes and lots of basil last year but they were in pots. It was a bit of an experiment to see if the the deer would let them survive. This year I dug a small bed and have planted cold crops: broccoli, beets, radishes, lettuce, carrots, spinach, and swiss chard. Inside I’ve started tomatoes and peppers. If all goes well perhaps I’ll expand the bed a bit next year. I’ve also got lots of native perennials so I may try interplanting a few veggies and herbs as an experiment.

My sister and her family have also put in a garden for a second year in a row so that’s exciting.
