More Tomatoes from Garden May 11, 2009
I don’t dare leave a tomato to ripen fully on the vine, or I’d surely lose it to my resident Mockingbird. So, once they begin to turn, I pull them off and set them in the window to ripen. It’s become clear that my gardening obsession has gone a bit too far, with the vast number of tomato plants I planted this year. My parents and several neighbors are the beneficiaries of my obsessive overplanting and I’ve been sharing. Sharing what I’ve grown is a lot of the fun of gardening to me.
