Every Spring I throw a few plants in the ground with renewed dedication to nurture them through to the Fall. I usually get a few tomatoes and maybe some zucchini but not much more before the plants, depressed by neglect, follow through on a suicide pact. This year though, I have a mini-garden to brag about. After re-doing the patio last year, we left a small isocles triangle of soil very near the door. It has sent forth an excellent crop of mint, basil, cilantro and best of all an enormous cherry tomato plant.
