Done! Not only did I get the basil and tomatoes planted, I spray-painted the old metal chairs I’ve been using for tomato cages… I now pronounce the garden ready for a visit from the Queen. The chairs were part of a patio set left on the curb by a neighbor years back, with metal crossbars in the place where the seats used to be. They are perfect to use as substitutes for tomato cages, but far more elegant – a nice bit of re-purposing. Here is a birds’ eye view photo if the sketch doesn’t quite make sense:
What a great idea Kerry! I hope you keep us posted as the tomato plants grow!
