This year we planted a small garden. By that I mean, I was enormously pregnant with the snickerdoodle, so I bought plants and Jonathan planted them and tended them. After a great deal of research, I decided that what we needed was Celebrity tomatoes as they seemed most hardy. All of the gardening sites I read said that if you planned to eat tomatoes for the season only you would need eight to ten plants per person in your family. If you planned to preserve any you would need to up that to fifteen plants. Figuring that two of the tomato eating people in our family are small and our planting area wasn’t huge I would get ten plants.
We planted eight in the back yard and two in those upside down hanging planter dealies.
This is what my backyard looks like right now:
It’s a good thing my kids like tomatoes! I think I may have to learn how to can, and invest in canning supplies.
