I planned my garden, I used my mother's day gift card to buy tomatoes, peppers, jalapenos, squash and cucumber, but they looked like they always do. Wilting. Then when we got home from our short vacation in Seattle I turned the water on, then fell asleep and forgot all about it. I expected a high water bill from that night of indiscretion, but what I received was amazing. My tomatoes really responded to all the water. I have the nicest tomato plants I've ever grown! Even now in September, I'm still picking lots of cherry tomatoes. We're eating them in salsa, salads, and just as a snack.
I have learned one little Tomato Law. The plants you stake well will not produce. The plants that end up in between staked plants, will grow abundantly. Go figure!
We're a bunch of rednecks up here in Central Washington, just waiting for our own reality show. There are twin 4 year old hurricanes that are always into something. An 8 year old with a Minecraft obsession and ADHD. And an 11 year old drama queen that has already started in musical theater. Us adults work full time and try to make ends meet. We are loud, we are wild, and often inappropriate. Hey, it's just another day at the Kihn's.
