My garden from last year was pretty good. I only grew tomatoes and peppers and onions. I want to grow more this year so my husband made my garden area twice as big. I dug up all the old dirt and raked it around the entire area. I needed a lot more soil. I went to Ace hardware and bought 17 bags of top soil and hubby poured it out of the bags and raked it around. We then went to Wal-mart and bought 20 bags of their top soil. Hubby raked it around. The Wal-mart soil is not that great compared to the Ace Hardware top soil and the Ace soil is only 4 cents more. I then went back to Ace and bought 24 more bags. It covered it pretty good, but I still need more. I am going to buy some good garden soil, the Miracle Grow one and rake it around the whole garden too. My seeds that I planted are really starting to grow good. The pole beans are just growing crazy. I just planted one of them in a bigger pot and put a stake in it. I just looked and it has wrapped itself around the stick and is growing longer than the stick in just a couple of hours.
I need a longer stake.
The tomato seed I planted were growing slowly. I just went in the room they are in to take a picture and the tomato plants looked like they got bigger too. I just looked at them around 5 but they grew a lot since then. See —->
I saw a tomato plant at Wal-Mart and bought it because I didn’t think they were going to do that good. Maybe they decided to kick it up a notch because I brought the new guy home and put him on the table. He said to them “Hey I am bigger than you, so I rule.” They must have said “Well we will show him and they doubled in size. Those little plants are starting to impress me. They even grew fuzzies on their stem.
<—See fuzzies. This is on a bigger tomato plant that I am growing. He is doing Great.
I even bought 2 pepper plants today, because my pepper plants that I planted did’nt look too great but tonight they are starting to do better too.
