The worse store tomatoes get the harder I try to grow my own. Given that my yard is set in the shade of some very tall maple trees and I live closer to the North Pole than to the equator this is a real challenge. Persistence is the key, and so is cutting down a few trees. The last 2 or 3 years I've had a little luck but I still need another month in my growing season. Here you see my first plum tomato (Roma) which I will be having with some basil from my prolific herb garden for dinner tonight.
|First Roma of the season. Uh oh, it's September 5th.|
