Remember my earlier post about growing golden beets? Well, today I'm going to let you in on a huge gardening secret! How to grow tomatoes!!!
1. Order seeds.
2. Give them to your parents and their "all-garden" backyard. Yeah, there isn't room for a lawn chair or anything. It is all Southern California, all-garden backyard.
3. Dad plants, encourages growth, waters, transplants, stakes, and grows the tomatoes.
4. Mom waters the plants and runs the heck out of the backyard when she sees a tomato bug.
5. Voicemail says, "Hi Mary, This is your Mom. We have tomatoes if you want to come over."
And you thought gardening was difficult!
yellow heirlooms. They were sooo delicious!
Um, Mom, that one didn't quite work...
Unfortunately, Southern California had a really gloomy and cold summer. My dad only got one round of tomatoes this year...and his cucumbers definitely didn't give him a bumper crop. But it was all delicious!
Ingredients and tools:
- Sea Salt
- Hand or knife
Thanks Mom and Dad for growing such great tomatoes this year! Let's do it again next year!- mary
