Tomatoes and other Gardening

So I finally got good tomatoes! This is my fourth summer in Colorado and it’s the first time I’ve gotten tomatoes. It wasn’t a bumper crop at all and I grew like 20 plants, but they did grow and they were good!

The little deck has some flowers but not a lot since it's so shady. The shade wildflowers worked well!

Just for fun I grew some beans. Next year I'll put them in the junkyard with the tomatoes so they'll get lots of sun!
