Our seeds arrived today. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in on Saturday.

I’ve been thinking about two things I’ve yet to finalise the planning for in the garden. The first, if I take after my mother and sister, is that I will end up with a ton of tomato plants that won’t die. As well as the seed I planted on the weekend we’ve got three seedlings and a promised seedling from my mother (the infamous un-killable tomato plant that she never even planted in the first place) and a bunch of other varieties that we want to try.  We want to try a few and see which we like best in terms of growing AND taste. We have 1.2 by 2.4 metre raised beds and I was wanting to grow the tomatoes as part of the crop rotation, which means fitting my tomato plants into half of a raised bed.

The other thing is we’re yet to finalise our decision on how to make best use of the 10 metre or so strip by the fence.

The answer should be pretty obvious but it just came to me that if we end up with too many plants then we can plant them in this strip. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before.
