Garden season . . .

. . . is upon us. It's hard to believe the last frost date around here (May 16, they say) is still over two weeks away. Pictured above is my take on, and a lazy version of, French intensive gardening. There's quite a bit of room for improvement, but if you look close you can see the tomato growing method that this blog is named after.

The picture was taken in early July (I think) last year. While this season's sugar snaps are already above ground, and beets and radishes have been sown, it'll be a while before we're into July. But it's coming.

No doubt. Maybe you'll get to enjoy some of your great produce this season. If not, I've got dibs.

Good stuff, although I wonder about the long term impact on the soil?
