Rookie mistake

After many delays, I finally finished one of the vegetable beds. The tomatoes are in, I planted three types red, yellow cherry and big boys. In the square blocks I planted herbs and marigolds.
This year I made a rookie mistake, too much compost, making the Ph level totally off. Today I mixed in more regular soil, hopefully it will do the job

Check out my new rain barrel, 50 gallons of water plus an additional 30 gallon tank. With all the rain this week both are full

Looks good, Rusty.
I hope those tomatoes grow nice and healthy for you.
There's nothing better than the taste of home grown vegetables.

I'm thinking about getting a rain barrel. Not quite sure which kind to get.
