Dave and I started a garden last year with tomatoes, cucumbers, and red peppers. The tomato was fairly successful – we got about 6-8 small tomatoes, but then the Arizona heat and unyielding sun set in, and everything died. 😦
SO, we’re starting anew this season – equipped with a mighty 7 foot umbrella that will hopefully shield the plants from the murderous sun. This time, we’ve got: one Salvia plant, some petunias, Roma tomatoes, a cucumber plant, and a “patio” tomato plant, as well as our returning favorite, the jade, and an unknown species of purple flower.
Here’s week 1, and here’s hoping that they’ll all survive!
