Just home nursing a fistula (on round two of flagyl to hopefully clear it up) and I had no one to tell that my enormous tomato plant is loaded with green goodies, and I'll be slicing some Brandywine heirlooms in about a week.  That's a pick me up!
Blessings to everybody, hope we're all marching to a healthier day!

Growing things does wonders for my soul... and I am envious of your emerging goodies! I moved from the Midwest out here to Colorado and haven't had much success growing anything. I'm spoiled by my hometown humidity AND extended growing season!

I hope you enjoy your harvest, and the dirt under your fingernails. :-)
