I am going to try to grow tomatoes. Here’s to keeping my fingers crossed because I have not always had the best luck with plants. I bought two starters from the farmers market in Sellwood and talked to the farmer. A Black Krim
And a Giant Italian. It was hard to find pictures of this tomato. I did find this one but am not too fond of it
They are both (I think) heirloom tomatoes and both varieties are quite large. I’ll be off a little later today to pick up some soil and organic fertilizer from Everybody’s Garden Center (yes organic. Do any of you dear readers think I would do anything different?) Tomatoes are one of my favourite vegetables (or fruits) because they are so versatile. I guess that means I get to learn how to can later this summer. If any of the 5 of you who read my blog have any suggestions about canning please let me know. It’ll be nice to have my own tomatoes in the winter. Tomato sauce, chunked up tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, etc. I just hope I am able to keep them alive long enough fruit and harvest, if so I’ll have more tomatoes than I can eat.
