So, my bed is doing better than John's but I'm still losing. The reason you ask? Because he does a better job of caring for the whole garden (including my bed) than I do. I guess I'm going to owe him a date.
I did buy him some bare root sweet potato plants and he finished planting the corn. The tomatoes and peppers are blooming and the squash are amazing. I don't know why anyone would buy squash starter plants. They're so easy to start from seed!
Now, if only we could keep Tebow out of the garden and stop him from chewing through hoses!
