Tomato Tracking

Always living in apartments mean there's not a ton of room for a veggie garden, which I would love to have. This spring, I'm starting out with a single tomato plant.

I'm not yet convinced my deck will get enough sunlight to keep this growing, but I figured I'd snap some pics of it so I can compare later on. Maybe it will be huge and this will be a sweet baby pic we can oo and ah over later, or perhaps it will fail and we can all sigh woefully over what it once was.

When I lived in Madison, my work had a farm on site, and had 10x10 garden plots for the employees. I had a fairly successful garden that summer, thanks to my dad's help, and had more cucumbers and tomatoes I could use.

If my tomato plant does succeed, I may take a note from Sunset magazine, and work on a one pot garden, which would be totally workable in my small space.

How does your garden grow?

My plants are enjoying the rain. Unfortunately so are the weeds.

I can't wait to get my flowers/plants going! I need to make a trip up to Madison for the Farmer's Market to get my goods :)
