Homegrown Tomatoes

Only two things money can’t buy, and that’s true love and homegrown tomatoes (thanks Guy Clark).

From my garden. September tomatoes are the best, even if it’s only September 1.

  1. Beautiful. Mine are just coming ripe now too, although I usually have to pick them a little early to keep the squirrels from stealing them when ripe.

    • Mine get stolen too, especially the Romas–and the first few ripe ones had tooth marks in them. It’s raccoons who like them, but we’ve also had a drought and I really can’t blame them for wanting a juicy tomato.

  2. 2nd day of spring and I’ve just planted my seeds – let’s hope they come out as good as yours

    • Wow, we are ending our season and you are starting! We had a rough season here, a summer-long drought and extreme heat, but in your own garden you can nurse things along. Good luck!
