Left to Right:
Cilantro, Garlic, Dino Kale, Celery, Spinach, Swiss Chard

An Introduction

Black Krim, Beefsteak, Brandywine. Oh My!
I grew these tomatos my first year as a garden hobbyist. My inputs are organic compost and manure. I use a desert adapted square foot technique of my own creation. I have 120 square feet of planting area over 5 raised beds. Check back soon, because I have already started planting out and will update my blog regularly.
