all of the beds have been planted and seven yards of bark has been spread in the walking areas around the beds. the 2012/2013 winter was a dry one for us in northern california - so my reduction to only 10 tomatoes is a good thing. over all things are looking up for the garden, i seem to have a pretty good population of ladybugs and their larvae roaming around.
some of last years challenges were cukes and squash which were being devoured by sowbugs/pillbugs as they seedlings emerged from the soil. i am preemptively spreading OMRI certified iron phosphate and hopefully that will solve the problem.
heres hoping you have a green year too!
