Tomatoes...


I love tomatoes. When first met Jerry and everything was new I asked him if he loved tomatoes. He said they were okay...

That's when I knew he was not a gardener and probably had not had a warm tomato right off the vine.

By the time we had our first house and garden all that changed I won him over.

Now that we live in Illinois our yard is all woods so we plant our tomatoes here at the tea room. Of course space is limited and we are busy... Last year we made no effort at all and had one tomato, which we watched a squirrel take a bite out of. This year I was determined to give it my best shot.
