I know I totally skipped talking about the gardens in July but there are a couple things I have learned. First, as much as I want to be a community builder, the dirt in my back yard is WAY better than the community garden.

I still recommend doing it if your city has community gardens!

Second, if you ever have the chance to purchase starter tomato plants from Mennonites, do it! But be sure you also have the heavy-duty cages­čś│

Third, if you let your children plant them, they will be too close together for harvesting but on the flip side, the weeds also can’t grow!

Stay fabulous!
