Night Gardening

This evening around 7:30pm I went out and planted 17 of my 18 tomato plants...One is waiting for the peas in my son's large container out front. It's a clear, warm, starry night. I planted, staked, and mulched every tomato. By the time I was ready to mulch it was already completely dark outside. Despite a sole mosquito that was dancing around me, it was a lot of fun. I've never gardened at night before, but the cool calmness outside was refreshing. Hopefully when I wake up in the morning the plants will all be planted was really dark.


  1. I love to photograph the garden at night. I'm sure the neighbors wonder what all the flashing is in my back yard!

  2. Too funny. I would need to add some lighting around the house to get anything other than a big picture of darkness. Hmm...maybe that will be my next improvement around here. Nah. I prefer to splurge on plants and supplies to grow plants with or on.
