Teaching and Tomatoes 

I am a middle school teacher by trade – a major part of my creative life. We prepare for testing, so all my creative works are covered (I use orange paper – a creative color according to color psychology). The saddest part is the removal of student work from our halls – oh so bare now. 

Now about the tomatoes… No work in the craft room or on the business. Time to plant the tomatoes. Bob the boyfriend has been ‘laid up’ with a knee injury, so now is the earliest we’ve been able to get in our garden.  

Tomatoes are the star of our garden! Bob digs the hole, and I plant. My mom taught me. The plants go deep – the deeper the better for root development. I add a little bit of Epsom salts to the soil. 

Since I got home from school at 4:45, we worked until 7. More tomatoes still to be planted along with cucumbers, peppers, and eggplants. Hope there will be room for a row of okra – for cooking and crafting! 

Sorry, too much work for pictures, but I’ll try harder tomorrow.
