I decided I wasn't doing much with the garden this year, with Baby coming at the height of the season. Red Chief and I planted some peas in the spring, and he now wants to plant every vegetable on his dinner plate.
After the peas, we put in four tomato, three pepper, and two parsley plants. I purchased an early variety of tomatoes after my last year's experience with green tomatoes, and so far we've harvested six, with many, many more green ones waiting for us on the vines.
As I checked this morning for ripe tomatoes, I noticed that our garden has slugs, weeds, and toadstools. The dead pea vines are still there and the peppers have completely disappeared under the tomatoes.
Our garden isn't perfect, but I'm pleased to have gotten anything out of it, since I don't think I've spent more than an hour on it all year. Added bonus: Red Chief will eat any vegetables that he helped plant.
