Inspired by the fact that Thom is going to give me some tomato plants that he started from seed, I decided to make a vegetable garden. A major problem is that it is shaded by the house in the afternoon. Well, the plants will have to do what they can under the circumstances. Since I dug the garden in a part of the yard that used to be part of the chicken pen, they should be well fertilized. My plan is to actually take care of this garden. If I do, it will be the first time I haven't lost interest by the end of June. Time will tell.
