|From 2010, not long before the Masters of Red got the rest|
|From 2012, a volunteer cherry tomato...just when you think it's over, it's not!|
After that, I started coming out West during tomato planting time. Lots of delicious, organic 'maters, everywhere. Why bother growing them at home? Because, should have been the answer.
This year, knowing eventually that I'd be here awhile, I bought some very inexpensive starts from the plant lady. She shows up at a couple of weekly farmers markets we go to and I usually cannot resist buying something freshly grown or growing from her.
|Like this onion. It was so damn beautiful and delicious too.|
Hard to tell from the photo but it was about a foot and a half of beauty.
|This was a couple of weeks after I bought them|
(they were only about eight or ten inches tall then)
|The tomatoes in back are from another plant, these are Black Crim blossoms.|
|Golden Nugget cherry tomatoes are going crazy!|
|I think I might even get to eat one before I go|
|No, these aren't weird tomatoes, they are a type of bell pepper|
|And every garden should have some rosemary|
(around here it grows in bushes as big as a house, but this little plant contents me)
|A wall of tomatoes!|
Have a tomatoey Tuesday. Do something tending, tenderly.
