It has rained pretty much the entire month of May here in Dixie and, as a result, my tomato plants have gotten wicked healthy. The one on the far left, front corner is named Steroid because he has stood branches above the others since he was a little seedling. Yes, I am geeky. I name my plants, I talk to them, I listen to them, and right before I left last week I gave them some Miracle-Gro. That means they're not organic, but that doesn't matter to me.
What matters is I returned 5 days later to this dense jungle full of little yellow blooms and already-growing tomatoes! Check out the Romas that are hiding in the depths of Sabina (yes, I named my plant after our tour guide last summer in Italy). I cannot wait to make a caprese salad with my fresh Roma and sweet basil. Hooty hoo!
