I'm just gloating that I beat my farmer-turned-computer-technician husband. His tomato plants are still waiting for the traditional Memorial Day weekend planting. He has a dozen vegetable seed packets ready to go. He does just the right amount of work, ignores weeds (which drives this flower gardener NUTS) and inevitably produces mounds of healthy, glowing vegetables in fall without pesticides. He did this for twenty years in El Salvador without running water, so here, with sprinklers, it's a cakewalk. He was an organic gardener, before it was cool.
Here he is going out back to check his garden for tomatoes. IN OCTOBER!
