Here’s a great post to get you started if you’re getting your tomato garden ready for the summer. I can’t wait to taste the variety of fruits (yup, tomato is a fruit) I planted!
Cleaning off last year’s neglected pots was the biggest hurdle. More than a few spiders had made a home under the lip of the pots. I pulled out all the weeds and dead plants that should have been taken care of last year, and then flipped the pots over to spray with water to get most of the gunk out.
The first spider to pop out was black with a white dot on it’s rump, and had green eyes. I sprayed the heck out of it with insecticide until its movements were slow enough to hit it with a metal shovel. *shiver*
After a couple hours of that, I was finally ready to plant the tomatoes. Put 10 plants in pots and can’t wait for all the caprese salad coming my way!
