Tom Legg's Gardening Page

let's dig our hands deep in to Mother Earth

Updating the page on 23 June, 2005
So it's been about 7 years since I've updated this. A couple of moves and I've found myself on the opposite side of the planet. No ground space in the new place, so I've found myself container gardening.

Well the spring order just went out. I need to prepare the guest room for my new babies.

I haven't completely mapped out the small squares of growing space available to me yet. But expect several varieties of tomatoes and some new perennials and maybe a few annuals.

The first part of the order just arrived and I'm itching to get my hands off this keyboard and into some good dirty earth.

The spring was cold with annuals suffering cold damage in late May and early June. June was wet. Downpours had most of Eastern Massachusetts under flood warnings for about a week. July has brought an end to the rain, but substituted it with summer, dry and the temperatures around 90. The garden looks dismal, but there is still hope for a late summer renewal from the tomatoes and flowers.
