366 Project on 6/8/16. I have never been very successful at vegetable gardening. Often, I would "doom" my own efforts by planting way too much for someone who really doesn't know what she is doing. This season, I only planted 4 tomato plants. They are almost as tall as I am and have quite a few flowers on them. I may still not know what I am doing, but I am feeling more like a gardener these days!
