Ok I will start off with this is a rant..... I am so mad I could spit nails! I am not sure if you all remember but we recently (4 mos) adopted a newborn baby boy. Our second youngest child is almost 7 and so it has been an adjustment. I care for him about 23 hrs of the day, my husband may play with him for about an hour. (This is NOT the rant, just giving you information leading to the rant.) So needless to say it has been a busy summer. My father gave me some tomato plants for my "garden" and they sat on the porch for about a month before I was able to get them in the ground. At that point, I just plunked them in the untiled ground, surrounded by grass. I then put up a makeshift fence so my free ranging chickens wouldn't get to them. At no point did my husband offer to help, he would just complain about the weeds and that I did it half------all wrong. Well yesterday I was looking for bugs on them, and a green tomato came off. Next thing I know he is weeding the tomatoes and tying them up, "I think I broke a limb, but it will still be better this way." And taking down my makeshift fencing..."I would rather the chickens eat all the tomatoes than the bugs." Well today I go out, and sure enough he is getting his wish. All my BIG tomatoes are gone, the cucumber leaves on one plants are shredded, and I am fuming MAD! Well I put the fence back up and all I can hope for is that maybe I will get some tomatoes. Heck I am not a HUGE tomato lover, and I loved to feed them to the chickens last year.... I think my biggest problem is why.....Why did he do this? Yes it wasn't the best garden, but I was proud that I even found the time to get them in the ground, and to make sure that they got watered.... Sigh........ Ok I am done. I know he is a JERK.....has been from about day 31....(on his best behavior before that.) In fact I tell people who are going to meet him, that know me, that he is one. If you have read this far thanks! I needed the support!
