Day of the Nightshades
It was a busy day today! I planted the tomatoes (25), peppers (7), and eggplants (9) outside. That sentence is so short compared to the length of time I spent actually doing it. Hours.
Half of the tomatoes are staked with our old cages, and the other half will be "caged" tomorrow with the cages R bought today. There are 22 tomato plants left, and hopefully, I'll be able to find good homes for them.
On a whim, I also planted about 15 Orca (dry bush) beans, sticking them wherever there was a space between compatible plants.
My kelp meal was put to good use today. I sprinkled it on just about everything. Smells so good!
Pictures tomorrow. I'm off to have a shower and a cup of tea!
