A little oddly, if you want to know the truth. The CRC Community Garden is going as well as can be expected the first year, but I have learned some things.

1. Do not plant tomato plants so close together. It is now a jungle and I am having a hard time actually finding the tomatoes. When I do, they are often past their prime, shall we say.

2. Try to time your tomatoes and basil so they are ready to harvest at the same time. My dreams of fresh tomatoes and basil for a caprese salad have not materialized, sad to say.

3. Never, under any circumstances, let your cucumber vine climb up the back of the trellis. If one picture is worth a thousand words, then I think this says it all.
