Because sometimes a half bushel of veggies a week isn't enough....
Today I planted 18 plum tomato plants, 4 hot portugal pepper plants, 4 zucchini plants, and 6 groups of tomatillo seedlings. Tomatoes and hot peppers are for making sauce for the winter. Zucchini is for eating now (although sometimes I freeze some in slices for winter stir fries). Tomatillos are great for salads and salsa (which can be frozen for the winter as well)
The poor plants should have gone in the ground a few weeks ago, but thankfully did okay with regular waterings on the porch. All seem to have survived the transplant, thanks to the drip irrigation and to the husband who put out the hoses around the plants.
Because I need more veggies. (Alternatively: Because I am crazy.)
