Anna and one of her tomato plants, late May, last year. Two days after this picture was taken she decided she couldnt handle living with me anymore. Oof.

Another oof... Im sure Im at $1000 invested so far this year, now. Ouch. All on a gamble. It will likely take double that to get me through the season. Whether Im successful or not, I think this hobby will be headed to the back burner next year. Next year is going to all be about being economical. Next year... $200.

One Wow pak helped each of her tomato plants, like the one pictured here, btw. Mulch water and miracle grow, too.

The only thing she did wrong was let them get root bound they should have been planted in the garden two or three weeks prior to this photo.

Other than not getting them in the ground on time, Im 100% going to be stealing from her playbook. She also had some early aphid problems, and the aphids were transmitting viruses.

No snow yet this year and very mild weather again.
