Tomatoes in Ground, 2018

I thought I was going to let my tomato patch lie fallow this summer -- it rained almost every day of the Spring, well into June, and was uncharacteristically cold. But then we had some landscaping done and the nice men built me a brand new raised bed, larger than the old one, and there was all that nice soil sitting there doing nothing, so....

I went and bought some cheater tomato plants (some w/ fruit already on them) and planted 3 cultivars and a bunch of herbs, and there's still room for fall cilantro and lettuce. Throws the "tomatoes don't lie" narrative right off, but hey: tomatoes. And if it stays warm through August, we might even get some.

I may or may not have been motivated as well by a week at the beach with farmer's market tomatoes every night.
