I planted a bunch of seeds. I wasn't sure if they would sprout. My daughter and i pulled all the weeds out of the flower bed. As it grew weeds and grass for years. After pulling the weeds we placed thick cardboard in the flower bed. We placed three small pallets and frog statues in the flower bed. Afterwards we placed mulch all around the statues, inside the pallets and out. We added numerous seeds and steadily watered them.
After a few months things started to grow. Lazy Susans, Marigolds and pear tomato plants appeared. Plus weeds where the other seeds were planted.
I am not sure if I actually planted weeds. Or the birds, squirrels and rabbits that frequent my front yard took off with the seeds.
By the start of August I was picking pear tomatoes. One day a neighbor came over. We started talking about my tomato plants. He asked if I sprayed anything on the plants. I said no. Only put the pallets, mulch and seeds. I occasionally water them as it rained enough times i didn't need to. yet, that was it.
He grabbed a tomato and ate one. He said the tomato tasted better than ones you can get in a store. My boyfriend grab ones and ate it. He to told me how good they tasted.
It made me secretly wish I wasn't allergic to tomatoes. I would of ate one too. The compliments made me feel good. I smile when I look at my small garden each morning seeing more tomatoes producing.
