I am learning everyday with my young daughters how to a better parent, homemaker and person. I believe in respectful, gentle parenting, being good to the earth, good to yourself, others and family and instilling good values in my child.

Note to Myself
Gardening note to myself:
Tomatoes in the ground grow so much bigger and produce so much more then my old containers. Space more apart and 13 tomato plants is too much
Tomato cages rock
Yellow cherry tomatoes, so yummy
Zucchini is a weed, so is summer squash and spaghetti squash, give them room to grow.
Lettuce, plant earlier and closer, they do not need much space and bolt quickly in a hot Jersey summer
Figure out some trellising or something for cucumbers, they grow much taller then my bamboo rods and need more support.
Several plants is the perfect amount, cucumbers and pickle cucumbers grow fast and plenty.
Mulch more, weed more.
Watch out for slugs, they do damage quick.
