Proof of Gardening

I watered again last night and then again this morning. I think I'll need to cut back to just morning watering from here on.

These are the tomatoes from the side. Notice the marigolds to keep bugs away. The plants may be too close together. These tomato plants will grow up not out, but I don't want the roots to collide.

We're maybe using half a row for the plants so far. From front to back, we have tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and garlic. The mulch covers the transplant beds. All have greenery above ground, except garlic. You plant the sprouts downward to develop the roots. The patch on the left is where we cut away blackberry bushes and are trying to grow lawn.
