Tomato Down

Yesterday I got a call from the Ballard Garden.  Seems the Sunday rains took out one of three tomato plants I have in the ground there.  I cursed myself instantly for not building a cloche. 

 I’m sure pioneers never worried about plants and babied them for the growing season, but I keep getting the feeling that I”m slowly killing these vegetables as opposed to nurturing them.  I’m starting to have anxiety that come August harvest, there will be nothing to pick and I’ll have to refund everyone’s money.

 Oh, to be a gardener-for-hire.
