You may remember from THIS previous article that Farmer Slacker is trying his hand (and black thumb) at tomato growing.
Well, them mater plants is getting bigger and bigger. And now we got maters on ’em too. There’s a 4 or 5 little tomatoes on each plant right now. The largest is about the size of a tennis ball. It’s going to be very cool to actually be able to eat something that I grew myself. Ain’t nature a trip?
I don’t know that this will end up being a new hobby for the Slacker, but I’m having fun with it at the moment. I also have a little basil plant growing out there along with the tomatoes. It’s doing OK, too. I don’t even know how to process/use fresh basil. I guess I’ll have to do some research here pretty soon.
Well, anyway… this was just a quick tomato update.
