In news of the World's Tiniest (and Most Half-Assed) Garden, I would first like to announce that the green pepper plant is doing splendidly.
The tomato plants—not so much. They outgrew their tomato cages and kept collapsing whenever there was a gust of wind. Now they're leaning against the back fence and producing feeble little green tomatoes. You don't want to see the carnage. Oh, you do? OK, fine.
Next year I'll train them up the fence to start with. I still don't know if I can make tomatoes work with so little sun, but we'll see.
In other yard news, I stopped by Nagel Lumber and noticed this cute little garden shed on sale. It was just what I had envisioned for this spot by the house.
Now I can store my garden tools and they won't get rusty in the rain.
