I planted two patio tomatoes (in a pot, yes) while I was still confidently stating that we weren't planting anything this year. But maybe a pot of tomatoes means I'll have a few little ones to perk up our salads.
And there's nothing like a good, homegrown tomato.
No, we didn't put in a garden. But, we did put in some plants. I suppose the difference between the two is scale...you should see the scale to which I hope to unleash my gardening mojo in the Great Hereafter We Move To a Permanent Location. Nuff said on that.
So my birthday was in April and I succumbed momentarily to the siren song of the garden center, assuaging my (rather robustly immune) conscience by telling myself that HEIRLOOM plants were a somehow more virtuous acquisition. And so on. And then there were 10. Three Black Princes, three German Johnsons, one Yellow Pear, and a yellow cherry tomato. All but the two patio tomatoes are happily IN the ground (I want happy microbes, happy earthworms, happy pollinators and insects galore, and I planted a conglomeration of happy mixed flowers and flowering shrublets as neighbors. And don't forget the birds, who like the cages for landing sites near the bird feeders.)
What's your favorite tomato? The one that grows best for you?
