Tomatoes and Trips

These are my tomato plants. They are 8 feet tall–no joke Husband measured them. I’m off to Chicago for a long weekend. I expect that while I’m gone all of the tomatoes will ripen.


These are my babies–I know they know I’m leaving.

The “fertilizer” was the clover planted in this bed last year and turned over in the spring. I watered them deeply when I transplanted them from the pots I grew the seeds in and I think I watered them twice from the hose this year.  8 frigging feet tall. The cherry tomatoes are as big as plums.

Go organic and you too can, have many tall plants with hundreds of tomatoes.

Talk to you when/if I get back. I may have shorter hair by then.
