Storm Damage

Apparently while I went about my business today in Dunwoody, a storm raged through Decatur and took down 3 of my tomato plants, broke one of the pots, broke limbs off another, and destroyed the pepper plant. I’m going to see what I can do to salvage the Ceylon in the broken pot. Details to come.

Tomatoes vs. Jam

Today my neighbor threatened on Facebook to come and liberate some of the tomatoes from the porch.  This, clearly, is one of the dangers of urban tomato farming.  Megan, Christie and Stacy had quite the back and forth today about how if Christie stole tomatoes today, there would be no tomato jam in her future.

Luckily the vines were heavy with fruit when I got home.  Very heavy.  It was the kind of harvest I’ve been dreaming of.

Dark green, quilted leaves are attractive and fruit is abundant, making this a great variety for indoor gardening. Needs no staking. Determinate. 70 days.
