I intended only to plant herbs this year. Herbs I can do. Herbs I've had some success with, despite the fact that our yard gets virtually no sun. I was resigned to the fact that I'm just going to have to buy my vegetables since I can't get them to grow. I told myself that I can still enjoy the farmers markets. I can still make jelly and can salsa. I can still blanche and freeze the beans that my mother-in-law will bring to me (right Grandmother?).
And then I went to pick up my herbs, and somehow 4 tomato plants jumped in my cart. I don't really know how that happened because surely *I* would have not done that. I mean, *I* know better. I know that no matter how much I love tomatoes, no matter how much I even love the SMELL of tomato vine, they will NOT grow in my yard.
There must have been some kind of "buy a boatload of herbs and get 4 tomato plants free" deal, right?
You know, I've heard it said that the definition of insanity is when you keep doing the same thing, expecting to get a different result.
But then you knew I was a little cracked, right?
