A view from the porch.
A new set, six of them.., the new tomato plants to replace those just pulled out on the other vegetable bed. This plot is very close to the walkway, and a little bit to the right of the porch. I have prepared the cage months ago. Now it is placed right on the bed, protecting the tomato plant, giving it a room to grow and at the same time controlling the growth of marigolds nearby. The other 5 are not caged yet. They have to wait for their turn I guess, because my hands are tight and my time is limited. Little flower buds are emerging already.
My little vegetable garden thrives
within that constraints; my hands and my time.
