The most interesting take aways for me were a couple of simple ones. When you pot up a plant and sit it on the ground you lose two gardening zones – who knew. If you are going to hold over plants from year to year, dig a trench lay pots in there in and then sit your pots inside. That way you always have your trench and your initial pots ready to go.
As you age, it is interesting how much you appreciate having friends who will pick fresh berries and bring them to you just because they know how much you enjoy them. It is way better than any store-bought gift I can think of.
Big, medium, small, and cherry. I really like the large Celebrity tomato. It doesn’t have any blemishes, tastes delicious, and the plant has not developed blight.
I bought a smaller cherry tomato this year, Matt’s Cherry Tomatoes (top left), but I won’t buy them again. They taste good, but when you pick them, the skin rips, they leak, and I end up pitching them. We’re getting to the end of the tomato season, and I’m okay with that because I’ve eaten my weight in tomatoes and have bags and bags in the freezer. Even with the drought, it has been a fantastic year for tomatoes.
If you are feeling uninspired this week, check this ‘camper’ out. We saw it yesterday, and it just brought a big smile. It took a creative mind to do this. Have a great week friends. 🙂
