Gardening thoughts.

I'm already feeling blah about this upcoming garden season.

I can't decide what in HELL I'm planting this year.  Isn't this why God invented grocery stores?
 I'm not looking forward to starting my tomatoes. Usually, I'm quivering with excitement about what rare/heirloom/etc toms to try this year.
Last year, we had Tomato Smallpox...maybe Tomato Marburg (a hemorrhagic fever virus, for those of you that don't read viral epidemiology texts for funsies).
  Every single plant died an unholy death, leaving me begging for tomatoes on street corners.
I don't think I can go through that again.

I've tried the eco friendly approach. That got me tomato plague and squash borers and I don't know what in the name of sweet baby Jesus attacked my green beans.
I'm ready for straight up chemical warfare, but I'm trying to ingest as little Death Chemicals as possible.  We'll see how that plays out.

I'm making the choices today..running out of time to get things ordered and started.
