The cherry tomatoes are ripening and I have already harvested one full sized tomato today. Yum! It seems a little early for tomatoes, normally the cherry tomatoes come first, then a week or so later the larger varieties. I'm not complaining, though.
One couple, one yard: figuring it out as we go along
My husband Matt and I live in a single family house (built 1936) in Northeast Baltimore City with our three dogs, Violet (a whippet), Pippi (a tiny dachshund) and Elvis (a pug). We are lucky enough to have a backyard that is 45 feet wide and 236 feet long. To put it in perspective, the house I had rented before we got married had the more typical Baltimore City rowhouse yard dimensions of 12 feet wide and 6 feet long.
While Matt does much of the hard labor (and has become quite obsessed with gardening) I do most of the planning, vegetable tending and of course, all of the photography.
Look for updates of what is in bloom, what has changed and what we are planting throughout the year.
