In this chilly weather Adam has been building his vegetable garden for the spring. This time last year, the present veggie garden area was nothing but hard sod pasture. Adam was focused on compost-making, sowing wheat, and wishing our winter garden would not drown. It did :(

Adam's been yapping with Peter about how to grow the tomatoes. Peter worked on a small farm last summer and their method for trellising tomatoes was quite wonderful. They ran a strong cable overhead and then ran cables down to each plant, allowing the plants to vine up the cables. The three photos below are from that farm:
