But Gardening is Gross!

Today's my day off. I'm considering planting some tomato plants because I'd like to try my hand at canning the little guys. I've had the tomatoes sitting in their original black containers for about three weeks and often forget to water them. Everytime I go to plant them, I wonder if I'll dig up a slimy worm and then I rationalize, "The soil is probably too wet. I'll do it later."

My husband has threatened to relocate them many times into the big garden (because I'm killing them softly) but I want to plant them in my little plot. Alas, gardening is so much more romantic to think about than to do...

My dear, worms are your friends. They make the soil nice for the plants. They are not gross.

Canning tomatoes?! Let me know how you do it... I'm trying my hand at tomato plants as we speak (after 4 bad tomatoes out of six, I'm not too thrilled about getting anymore from the local grocery store). However, I never realized you could *can* them!! We eat oodles of tomatoes here, so I'd love to find a way to keep them with us year-round! :)

P.S. ~ Love your blog!
